8 RV Parks near Monticello, Utah
Jun 2017 - $38.00
This is a small park with 6 pull-thrus and maybe 12 backins. Very clean. Good place to stay one night on route between Cortez and Green River. We have stayed here several times because of its location on our travel routes. Nice folks. - wingnut60

You have to understand this "8" is based on choices in the area. I think we chose well. The folks running this campground were super helpful and friendly. The sites can be real close depending on which one you are in but there is some shade at least in those tight sights. If you want a lot of room get on the open row away from the trees. WiFi is REALLY GOOD. - TRDAWG

Before I start this I must say that I'm not that 1 person who always has something bad to say about an RV park. But..... I can not give this park anything higher than a 3. We have only been in 1 park that has been worse than this. Granted this is fall so I have no problem with leaves and gravel sites. What I do have a problem with is the dog crap on the ground, the filthy showers, the filthy toilets, the filthy sinks and the dirty laundry machines. They have not been cleaned in some time. The 50 gallon trash can in the laundry has not been empty in some time. If you look at their website the photos are not of this park. I was very disappointed upon arrival. If ever in this area again, we will find another place. - kathiecarlson

Hospitality was a 10! Sites are gravel, level, with grass and table. Pavilion had a gas BBQ for all to use.
The owner gentleman, put on a sharpshooter demonstration. Easy walk to store and shops. We would definitely stay here again. - binkey36

We stayed for 10 nights, it was a great location to see the parks in the SE part of Utah. We have a Schnauzer and the owner has five of them and taught us about cheat grass that works its way in their paws and will infect them. He also is a fast draw gun shooter that we got to see at the Discovery center in town. We all had a wonderful time there. - Traveling Doghouse

This is a smaller park, in the city, close to everything we needed and close to local scenic attractions. Nice park with down home hospitality! The owner helps everyone set up! There are bathrooms, shower, and a laundry room there too. He is the process of building a pavilion and more cabins. We enjoyed our stay. - Sumacs

A park from long ago. sites are large enough but hard to get into due to poor road layout. Lights in the restrooms only work at night? However it is a nice location and a great price. On site restaurant was recommended by other campers. Has a on site Geocache! Owner is a cool guy. Would stay here again. - Brian & Corky

Narrow dirt access road, hard to enter, go to restaurant to register. This is an older campground, the sites are not level, access for larger vehicles is tricky with tight turns. The bathrooms are a disgrace, standing water on floors, dirty, dark. Although it is in a rural area, there is a steep grade on the highway and truck noise was considerable. Nice mountain views and shade, but I would not stay here again. - dzwelch

Made a reservation based on the closest location to Canyonlands. No one was there to check us in, so we checked out the campground and bathrooms on our own. Bathroom and showers were disgusting. Left after about 30 minutes and checked into another RV park back in town. - coffmake

We had hoped to stay in the Needles section of Canyonlands NP but even though we arrived by 10:00 am we had just missed out on an NP site so the visitor center recommended a few BLM campgrounds on Route 211 (access road to park). This campground was about 8 miles just outside the park. There were about 25 sites and the gravel road in was safe and easy on the motorhome. We took the last site in the campground just before the Group section and found this site to be very nice with a picnic table, fire pit and the vault toilet nearby. There is no water at the campground so come in full and prepared for boondocking. We were in a 28 foot motorhome. Sites are a bit small but don't think a larger rig would have too much trouble finding a spot. Since it was free at the time the Group area could accommodate any size. We would stay again. Great views from site and some hiking. Very quiet and easy access to park. Virtually no trees for shade. Vault toilet obviously had not been cleaned in quite some time so we went in and did our own cleaning. That is reason for the 6 rating. Had to put at least $1 for this review for the site but it was free at this time of year. - travlinphoolz

Quiet campground just outside of the Needles area of Canyonlands National Park. It could be awesome, but it isn’t very well taken care of. Some of the sites were overtaken by all the weeds growing on them. Other sites were fine, but needed some shade trees. The surrounding area was beautiful with the high red rock cliffs. The price (free) was right, too. We would stay here again if visiting the Needles, but wish they would spend a day getting rid of the weeds. - Bobbi1948

BLM Campground. No electrical, but can run generator 8am to 8 pm. Remote location. Very quiet and clear skies at night. Great for stargazing. Short trees and scrub brush for minimal shade. Pad was even and with a very slight tilt. Cattle grates on the road in; no raccoons or bears. We stayed here the first week in June, warm but not hot. Likely much hotter at the height of summer. - OlderGoat

This is a BLM campground with an iron ranger to accept registration fees. It is quiet and little used, we stayed here 3 nights. The first night July 2nd we were alone. The location is beautiful and breezy. The toilets (3) are pit type with a drinking water spigot & fountain outside the main one. This a great place to decompress. We would stay here again. - SCClockDr

This low rating applies to big rigs. This campground is just not suitable for our 40 foot RV. While our site was long enough, we were never able to level even with leveling boards. We could not extend our slides to the full extent due to close trees and bushes. This is a BLM campground, without hookups, in a truly gorgeous setting in the plateau overlooking the Southern area of Canyonlands National Park. If you are camping in a travel trailer or Class C motor home the rating would be much higher, and consistent with a nice BLM campground w/o hookups. But if you are in a big rig -- better to go north to Ken's Lake or south to Devils Canyon campground. - hoppytoad

Maybe the best dry campground we've ever been to. Easy, paved roads to get into and out of; sites very in shape and size as well as placement of picnic table, fire ring and available tent area. Loop B was better for us (tent camping this time) as there appeared to be more spacious sites as well as room between sites. Immaculate vault rest rooms and a water spigot just across from our site (B29). Appeared to be a single camp host for both loops and he was right on top of things. Will definitely stay here again, whether motorhoming or tent camping. - pyrthkr

This was a surprise! We stayed three nights (with senior pass) over memorial day in space 14. They don't have 'restrooms' but they had the cleanest pit toilets I've ever seen. There are water spigots spaced around the park also. Just a few miles north of Blanding, we used it as a base to explore some local ruins and Natural Bridges park. Most are levelish. We parked at one end of the pull thru to get the easiest set up. Very private. Some afternoon shade. A little noise from hwy 191, but not obtrusive. Nice concrete pad with pit, table, and stand for a BBQ attached to the asphalt pad. You are free to scavenge firewood from dead trees. Bring a saw. B loop doesn't have the concrete table pads. Space 20, for an rv, is very private, facing a stone wall for a pull in. 22 would be great for a family. Lots of shade and a lot of room to play. B loop is closer to the hwy tho, and will have more noise. Check closely when booking as some are quite short. The host told us they are rarely full and always have spaces available. We had a nice view over the short pines to the east and lots of contrails overhead. We'd stay again. - Dave n Rene

You can book this BLM campsite online, just be aware there is a $9 booking fee. There were plenty of sites available so we probably could have just driven in without a reservation. The campground has two loops and is big rig friendly with several pull through sites. There are no hook-ups but there are water spigots in each loop to fill up containers (not to fill your RV tank). The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful with things to do in the area. Even though the campground is near the highway, it was very quiet. Vault toilets were clean. There is even a short nature hike and nearby jeep trails. The town of Blanding is nearby. We enjoyed our stay here. - mohocamper

Nice level lot. We used space 2. Very wide with room for our table and chairs (none were provided). No frills camping which is all we need. Hate paying for pools we don't use. Very nice even though right off road. - Maltese Mom

This is a no-frills park. Some of the sites, including the one we were in are very nice; other sites -- not so nice. Our site was level and wide with room for our toad to park side by side with the RV. Nor all sites have shade and a picnic table, but some do and these are nice sites indeed. When make reservations, request the nicest sites and a pull-through site. - hoppytoad

This is the least expensive campground within the Blanding area. It is basically a flat piece of property with a few trees between sites. Side to side leveling was not bad, front to back needed some adjustments. The width and length of the sites were a mixed bag. Some of the sites can accommodate a large rig with a tow.
Check in at the Shell (7-11) store.
Choose your site carefully. Some sites have 50 amp service, some 30 amp, some have both. One electrical box had a 15 amp plug shoved into a 30 amp outlet. This 15 amp plug had a 30 amp breaker switch. Some boxes had the old fashion screw in circuit breakers. Some boxes did not have any circuit breakers. Another box had a 30 amp plug replaced but installed incorrectly (the negative plug was on top instead of on the bottom).
Most of the water spigots were OK but some were too low into the ground. One was actually buried in the dirt. The sewer connections within most sites were too close to the water spigot.
Surprisingly, the voltage was good - hovering around 120 volts. WiFi was available but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good at this location.
The bathroom and showers were clean but we did not use them. It was quiet at night.
We would come back to this campground but we would be very careful in selecting a camp site. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

We enjoyed our stay here in 2013 that we are back. The campground is clean and neat. We had a back-in site in the back row so had a great view out over the Comb. There a are quite a few pull-through sites some with trees and grass up front. A beautiful gift store in the office. Our site had a picnic table. There is so much to do in this area. Hiking the Mule Canyons, Kane Gulch, seeing all the ruins and petroglyphs in the area, Natural Bridges, the Fort Museum in Bluff, Valley of the Gods, Goosenecks, Moki Dugway, Muley Point or you can drive further afield and get up to Canyonlands and Newspaper Rock. Drive the Comb with its wealth of ruins and petroglyphs. Your car will get dirty here. But that's the point. - swike

This is a very nice RV Park. Nice, long pull-thru sites and back-ins. Trees in some pull-thru sites. Quiet at night even tho it is on a main road. Laundry is very clean, and they have a wonderful Trading Post with loads of items like rugs, pottery, and jewelry. Very nice staff. Would definitely stay here again. Perfect stop for seeing Natural Bridges, Monument Valley, Canyonland, Newspaper Rock, and Bears Ears National Monument. - WSKeifer

This is a well located, very nice, basic campground. The upper spots have grass, while the lower ones are all gravel. The upper spot pull thrus are paired, so that you are on top of your neighbor, yet you have your own grassy area on the other side and it still feels private. The owners keep the campground in terrific condition, well graded, clean, and landscaped. It has very good dog walking areas. Although it is right on UT 191, there was minimal truck noise. The owner is very helpful, providing us with recommendations and maps. We stayed an extra night and would definitely return. - Dapper
