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. We camped at Canyon Rims Recreation Area, Windwhistle Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Quite a bit longer (plenty of space) for my 5th wheel and truck (I didn't have to disconnect

Tips for other Campers:

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. We camped at Canyon Rims Recreation Area, Windwhistle Campground in a Motorhome.

One of our favorite BLM campgrounds. It is 8 miles off the main highway out in the vast Canyonlands park area. Pit toilets were very clean and the available water spigot put out good clean water. It's DARK at night so if the clouds are away the Milky Way is very visible. We paid senior rate. We camped at Canyon Rims Recreation Area, Windwhistle Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful setting at the base of a butte with a nature trail off group site. Would have stayed longer, but no water until the following week. On the road to Needles Overlook--very quiet. We camped at Canyon Rims Recreation Area, Windwhistle Campground in a Travel Trailer.
