This review is for the Castle Rock campground in the Fishlake National Forest. We stayed here one night on our 3-week trip and it was the nicest campground we found. Yes it is rustic, but that is the way we like them. The sites were nicely separated by trees and shrubs, the park and restrooms were very clean and we found the campground (on a weekday night) as quiet as it could be. The scenery here is also fantastic! We would definitely stay here again. - dizzy2

We stayed at the Doctor Creek Campground. Directions: from Hwy 62/24, turn east on paved Hwy 25 and go about 6 miles. The campground is on the right at 8852' elevation. This is a rustic campground set amidst aspen trees. There are flush toilets. Some sites were big enough for our 40' rig and car. It overlooks a large meadow and the equally large Fishlake is nearby. This campground closes on September 15. We would stay here again. - nbi600

Very nice forest campground. Most of the sites have lots of elbow room and shady areas, but not as many trees as you might expect in a forest setting. The park is clean and well-maintained. The biggest problem was the lack of cellphone coverage (AT&T ) and no Internet (Verizon ). Our Dish did work though. We extended our stay by a day it was so quiet and peaceful. Capitol Reef National Park is less than 20 miles from here, so it was an easy drive over there to visit the park. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. - Bobbi1948

Fish Lake is an absolutely beautiful setting. We found this park and the staff to be OK - nothing especially great. Generally, the maintenance of the park has room for improvement, and the staff seemed interested in little more than collecting payment. Located near heavily forested area, some shade trees in the park would have been a plus for us? The slope of our pad exceeded the range of our leveling jacks without using additional blocks. We look forward to returning to the Fish Lake area and would not be opposed to staying at this park in the future, but we would probably look at an alternative park in the area prior to committing to this park again. - KPG

A little confusing finding the place and it's not that big. Couldn't level the motorhome on gravel pad owners refunded our money. Better suited for travel trailers and 5th wheels. - JohnInAz

We enjoyed this park very much, the view of the lake and mountains was incredible, the fishing was great, the only drawback is that there is no shade. - weluv2camp

Rustic RV park in the mountains of Utah with a marina and a lodge with a restaurant. Great view of Fish Lake at 8900 ft elevation. Hiking trails and excellent fishing. Wi-fi is available at the marina only. No cable or pool. Gravel pull-thru sites somewhat narrow, no picnic table or fire pit. We have stayed there before and really enjoy the mountain setting. - Michael Kibler

Needs work, sites not real easy to get into, not level. Most sites are occupied by seasonal folks. We could not hook up our sewer lines as they were uphill from our rig. Seasonal resident told us that there are new, young owners, still getting things organized and fixed up. Restaurant and gift shop on site; okay food for breakfast. Right across the road from the lake and they have a dock with boat rentals. No Internet or cell phone access all around the lake - store down the road has a cell phone booster. We would go back! But I would miss the Internet! - Karen and Rocky

This is a "Rustic" RV Park with quite a few seasonal Coaches resulting in not very many open sites. It is across the road from Fish Lake @ 8850' elevation so it can get cool at night. The views and the fishing are great. The sites are gravel with full hookups. A little narrow and without picnic tables or fire pits. There is a Lodge with a restaurant and supplies as well as cabins for rent. There is also a small marina where you can rent a boat or put yours in. There is no wi-fi or cell service, but there is a hot-spot down the road. We enjoyed our stay there enjoying the lake views and watching deer roam through the area and would definitely return. - Michael Kibler

The parking to check in is a little confusing: basically park wherever you wish! The sites all have trees. Our row, sites 30-39 and the row behind us, sites 40-49 had grass between each site. There is a very large, lush green grass area around the pool. The tent sites are in this area and were private, well-kept and looked very level.
Behind the park are some beautiful red cliffs that offer unusual photo opportunities. They do not have a specific dog area, although there are plenty of places to walk them. There didn't appear to be too many long-term residents, and all sites were clean.
We had two concerns. The first was the electricity. We arrived around 3 pm and by five the power had dropped off four times. It was so unstable we had to limit ourselves to two of the a/c units, and turn one of them off if we wished to microwave or cook. It caused us to hang around the entire next day rather than visit Capitol Reef because we wanted to be assured our two dogs wouldn't roast if the power dropped off while we were gone. We determined we could turn off all electrical in the coach except for two a/c units and were fairly certain everything would be okay. We did set the Auto Gen Start system just in case.
The second concern was the dinner at the Grill at the RV park. They have a reasonably menu with four seating times. We selected the trout and a hamburger and asked for 6:30 seating. At a little after 6:00 a young man came by our site and told us our meal was ready and waiting. By the time we got there the fish was a little dry and cold. The hamburger was okay. The cornbread was horrible. The side and dessert were served in small "prep bowls." The drink choice was lemonade or water - no ice. After we ate we knew why they charged the gratuity when you ordered, as the food wasn't worth the price.
On the bright side, the young man who came to get us and served our meal was very personable. We'd stay again but would avoid the Grill! - Don & Candy

Pretty good. Lovely scenery. Get a space near the back for the view. WiFi was ok. Store is useless. Book exchange ok. Very helpful staff.
The morning muffins were poor quality. The food was ok otherwise.
Wonderful gift store. - sfrantz

This was our 2nd visit here. It is convenient to Capitol Reef NP and other area attractions. The sites are gravel, fairly level with a very small grass area and close together. Tall trees which offer some shade. We were here for 4 nights, staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is free but very spotty. Verizon service is also spotty in the area. Laundry facility is clean. Great views. - Rich & Cathy Kelly

Stayed here during our visit to Capitol Reef NP for 3 nights. Fairly pricey for what you get and not comparable to other parks in the area. Hookups worked, sites are close together and are fine gravel, don't try riding a bike or wearing flip flops. Neighbors sewer hookup is within a couple of steps of your door. Somewhat unkempt appearance in general. Good OTA tv signal, but this is not a good spot for Verizon. Probably would try another RV Park in the area should we return. - jtl2

I value service above all when staying at a park. The good folks at Sand Creek where very accommodating, personable and friendly. We roll at 70' so we barely squeezed around the park and into our spot with the gracious help of the park owner. The best part about Sandcreek is it's close proximity to the main part of town which is within walking and cycling distance. - OutbackUSA

Office staff fine. Wi-Fi OK most of the time, which is pretty good at campgrounds these days. My Verizon MiFi did not work here. AT&T phone service worked pretty well. View was very nice from site #11. Price was good during high summer season. Very close to Capitol Reef National Monument. Lots of detractors, though that are fairly easy I would think to solve: site not level, trees not trimmed, place looks a little dumpy with clutter on the front porch and in the office area, entry into the place is dirt and gravel with lots of potholes. Satellite worked because we moved a little forward in our site. Barely enough room for car. Looks like they are clearing an area. Don't think I'd return to this one. - rwarner22

We have a big rig with a tow that makes us about 65 ft long, and the only reason I didn't give this place a 10 was because the driveway is extremely steep and the first turn narrow. Yes, you have U-24 behind you, but the road noise is light compared to MANY rv parks. The Wifi is spotty...had great service the first night, but as more guests arrived it all but disappeared. Its proximity to Capitol Reef is great. Our dogs loved the open green spaces. While not the biggest we would definitely recommend this Park. - Kbt

Very good value. No dog park but plenty of space to walk Fido. A little tight but consider this a stopover rather than a destination. - TGA2016

Beautiful grass and shade trees. Only detraction was feeling like your neighbor's sewer hookup was in the middle of your front porch. - TweenerLJ

Koosharem is a small town with one general store and one restaurant. RV park has less than ten RV spots, but is quite quiet and nice. Owners are very friendly. ATV friendly. Ride from park. We stayed there for one month and enjoyed it very much. Cool weather in the hot summertime. - bigmama

We came in on a Sunday afternoon in early August and had no problems finding an open site in Loop C. Most sites are fairly level, but some do have a bit of grade. Most of the double sites were taken by tent campers, but we had no problems with a single wide site. No over-the-air TV or cell phone reception at this NP. Nearest place for limited supplies is Torrey, about 10 miles west. Forget going east for anything. The campground hosts were right on top of things here. Just what we normally expect in a NPS campground. Deer are all over here, we had six mostly bucks show up one afternoon. We would come back if in the area. The only negative would be the very limited generator hours. 8 to 10 in the morning and 6 to 8 in the evening. It gets light at about 6, so waiting until 8 makes for a later start to the day. - Bob and Inga

This park is incredible for being a no-hookup campground. Upon arriving, I really thought I was at the wrong place. We were able to find a site without problem (arrived about 2pm) and setup camp. The campground has easy access to the national park attractions and hiking trails. Some trails and the visitors' center require driving to get there. The evening program at the campground led by a national park ranger was excellent. The dump station and water fill area were level and easy to get into and out of. - WineStream

We spent two nights here and got in some great hikes. The campground is beautiful. We had a double-wide site that allowed us to spread out and enjoy the late afternoon shade and great views. Capitol Reef is a great park and Fruita is a wonderful place from which to explore it. - Desert Beacon

Great little park with big rig access. Easy water and dump access, good roads, very spacious sites. Some very shaded, others not so much. Good walking in the area, dog friendly. It is 12 miles to Torrey, the nearest town, so plan accordingly. Incredible value.
Half the sites are reservable, half are walk in. We had no trouble getting a walk in site. - bobcovey

Nice little hidden campground, that could handle our 36' motorhome with tow car. Interior roads and site pads were blacktop. The sites had nice spacing, so you don't feel crowded. The camp hosts were very friendly. - JJ & CC

Fantastic national forest camping. Large level sites, table, fire ring. Lots of trees and solitude. Easily navigable in a large rig. It is high elevation and a welcome relief from the temperatures of the valleys below. It also has a nice hike to a waterfall. The host this summer (2013) was oddly nasty. My not knowing I was supposed to pay him the camping fee instead of putting it in the iron box apparently set him off. I can only imagine how he treats the many foreign visitors that frequent Southern Utah. Otherwise, this is forest camping at its finest. - PleasantSurprise
