5 Parks near Kanab, Utah
Jul 2015 - $39.00
As other reviewers noted, it's wilderness camping with full hook-up. The scenery is of breathtaking beauty. This being an RV park with only two sites, it's difficult to find a more private RV park than here. If you happen to have quiet neighbors on the other site, the peace and serenity is hard to beat.
The RV park is inside and part of Angel Canyon, the home of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. So many things the RV park itself lacks (like a shop, restrooms, WiFi access, cabins, cottages and more) are available in other parts of the sanctuary's wide spread facilities. However, it is about 1 mile from the park to the sanctuary's visitor center. So since this is an RV park review, the following comments only refer to the RV park itself.
The correct coordinates for the entrance of the park are Lat. 37.11387 and Long. -112.54805.
Info for big rigs: the length of site #1's concrete pad is 29.5 ft. between the front end and where the rear tires hit the stopper (27.5 ft. for site #2). There is 19 ft. space from the stopper to the fence, so even a sizeable overhang should fit in (12 ft. for site #2).
Communication: WiFi signal from the close-by cabins is too weak. We tried with an outdoor WiFi booster, but to no avail. So you need to get along with cellular service. On our travels, we use T-Mobile for voice and a Verizon Jetpack for Internet. Verizon gave us 3G service inside the coach and we roamed with our phones over AT&T with about two bars. However, for a solid phone call we needed to get out of the coach. Only after we installed our cell phone booster (with a trucker antenna), we got a faint signal from T-Mobile (too weak to be meaningfull, though), but 4-5 bars on AT&T and solid 4G/LTE data over Verizon.
The park is close to Kanab (10-15 minutes). We spent a whole week here and enjoyed it thoroughly. - Srdpty

We have stayed here the last two years while we volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We love the peaceful star studded nights and beautiful canyon views during the day. You have full hook-ups, 50 amp, water, sewer and a cement pad with a small patio and picnic table next to your space. There are some Juniper trees, bushes and cacti in-between the sites but the pads are staggered so it gives you a little more privacy. Both sites are back in but easy to maneuver. Close to the highway but no street noise and nothing but peace and quiet after the sun goes down. Pet friendly but there are burrs and stickers so fur baby feet beware. Some deer pass through the sites and turkeys are nearby. We reserve site 2 as the pad is a little longer so our 45’ fits with the jacks on cement. A 15 minute ride to the town of Kanab with grocery shopping, restaurants, hardware store and post office among other things. An hour away from Zion and a bit longer to Bryce, both worth visiting. Great Verizon reception, WiFi and TV through our satellite. These sites stay full so book early. We book a year in advance. - PERRELLAS

We stayed for 4 nights. As the previous reviews mentioned, the location is spectacular and the site was level, with concrete pad and shade. The only problem was that the sites are pretty close side by side and there is no curfew on checking in. So, when the occupant of the second site arrived at 12:15 AM (yes - that's 15 minutes after midnight) and took 15 minutes to back their trailer into the spot and another hour to settle in we were kept awake until about 2AM. If you are alone in the site or have more considerate neighbors, then it would be great. That's my only reason for the lower rating. - gtogrl1

We liked the view of the cemetery out our back window. We did NOT like the long term campers that smoked outside our trailer, or the arguments at 11 pm outside, or the slamming doors at 10:30 pm, or the barking dogs on both sides. We left ASAP the next day. We would never stay here again, or any place like it. - Scotter

Definitely an older park. The grounds are well kept, but a little shabby. Reminded me of a State Campground. Most sites have shade. Some of the permanent resident sites were becoming a bit trashy.
Very friendly staff, they lead you to your spot. The spots are a bit narrow for modern rigs, but if possible, they do not stack you on top of each other.
Very quiet and close to amenities. - Impkitti

We were traveling with 2 RVs in our party and we stayed for 5 nights. On arrival, they said someone had cancelled our reservation. They had given away our site which we had reserved 3 weeks in advance so that we could have our trailers facing each other. After much scrambling they found two sites next to each other but not facing each other that we used. Because my trailer and truck would not fit on the site, they also let me have the site next to it for parking my truck (no charge). So, they made it work but it was frustrating. Their reservation system is a desk calendar with hand written names on it. Ours was crossed out for some reason.
This park is wearing out. The reservation building is old, the pool table inside has torn felt, the chairs looked bad enough I wouldn't sit on them, etc. For example, the roads in the campground are not smooth, there are good sized holes randomly placed. It helps keep the speeds down for sure. The park wasn't cluttered or littered, just terribly worn out.
Electricity and water was fine. WiFi was actually usable (yeah!). A lot of campers were just staying the night and moving on. There are a few full time people there, but I didn't note any big issues there. Road noise was OK. I have dual pane windows. There are some big trees in the RV park. Sites are somewhat level and some people were using a bit of blocks. - kohai

Older park, lots of character. Friendly park. Gravel pads with concrete for wheels and porch. We would stay here again. Close to Zion and other National Parks. McDonald's across the street and park has very good wifi! Laundromat across the street. Good Karma here. - Jim Lee

This is a very old trailer park in a million dollar location. Not a dollar has been put into it in 50 years. The toilets overflow continuously. Their version of repairing them include: jiggle the handle and re-attach the hang chain with paperclips. The showers are a horror show. Be glad it is dark in the shower area; you won't see the filth. They make them smell clean only. The electrical through-out the park is ancient, a fire waiting to happen. - Miners

Hosts were very helpful and pleasant. Sites are gravel, but weren't too hard to level up. There was no cable and even though they advertise Internet, it only worked at the office, or in the laundromat. The laundry was clean, but it is the only one in town. So often there were people from outside the park using the machines and it was hard to get access. The park is pleasant and peaceful and we would stay there again. - Imanana2

The site was back in, FHU, level gravel with some shade. The driveways are "partially paved" mixed with gravel. The men's bathroom is one stall with 3 showers. The office has a fairly good selection of DVD's that they will lend you for viewing. WiFi was reasonably good and plenty of over the air TV stations available. Located just on the south edge of Kanab. - Coopsecondact

Good Sam discount for three night stay. Site was FHU, 50 amp, back-in site that was level gravel. Adequate park WiFi. Good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. Good satellite reception. This is a small park located on the main road into town. There is road noise during the day and evening, but mostly quiet at night. We stayed for three nights to visit the North Rim, an 80 mile drive south of Kanab. - Dave51

I love this small campground. The sites are treed and some are a bit close for slides. They have a small, clean dog enclosure with grass footing. You can walk to town easily from here. Wifi and cell phone work. - Dreaming

This is a "find". Not your average RV park. This is primarily a Guest Ranch that caters to groups coming in for 1-2 days, providing a western experience for mostly international young adults. It has 15 or so horses, one of which mows the lawn without a tether. They provide trail rides, western steak bbq, etc. The staff is extremely friendly and comfortable being out of the mainstream. Despite being only 200 yards off of the paved highway, you can forget about much of the world here and enjoy the peace and quiet. The full hookup sites are limited to 3-4 sites but they have abundant other sites for dry camping, or possibly water only. This site is close to the road going to Buckskin Gulch/The Wire BLM trailhead (slot canyon), and roughly half way between Kanab and Page. Call for info and reservation ... they don't take them over the internet. WiFi ok, but you need to come and sit on the porch of the office to have access . that of course is a pleasant process itself. - Bill Juhl
