20 Parks near Mount Carmel, Utah
Jul 2010 - $12.00
We stayed here last year for an overnight and chose to do it again this year. This is a Forest Service campground ran by a contractor. Great campground. Fishing in the area with a pond that people fish in within walking distance. Hiking trails take off from the campground. Family friendly area. - Mariposa Paul

We used this as a base for visiting Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park. Approaching from West of the park on US-14 made me a bit nervous: narrow road, steep grades and declines, and many twists/turns. However our Class A towing a CRV did just fine. We pulled into Duck Creek and immediately liked it. For us in a MH, the "A" loop was perfect: great site, nice restroom, and good roads. Campground Host was very helpful. No electricity available (or other hookups). No cell phone or internet available either. Easy drive to Zion and to Bryce from campground: use Hwy 14 going East from the campground to get to Hwy 89. Convenience store/supplies found for reasonable prices at Hwy 14 & Hwy 89 intersection. - AndersonFamily

If this lovely campground had hook-ups, we would live here as much as rules would allow. Now a 16-day max but I don't know if that means you must wait a certain amount of days before coming back. No water or sewer, but there is a good dump station and fresh water fill station. Loop A has some good RV sites with paved pads and patios. Loop D has an ATV coral that is part of the massive ATV trail system in the area. While nearby Las Vegas and Salt Lake City have temps in the 100's, it is only in the low 70's here. There are some really wonderful sites suited for everything from tent campers to big rig RV'ers. Everyone is friendly. Great group sites. Rating of 8 has to do with no water/sewer. - GailG

We planned to be here a week but ended up staying two weeks. Rate is the Good Sam weekly rate. Owners are super people and so is the rest of the staff. Very quiet at night. This is a great spot to visit many places from. This is the desert, but they water almost everyday to keep the grass growing. The sites maybe a little tight but we were gone most days. Power was good and strong and the WiFi is the best we have seen in a campground. I enjoyed my chats with the owners relaxing in the office which is like a family room atmosphere. - houseonwheels

The staff is an extended family and very friendly. The grounds are well kept. It's near a farm and you can walk over to pet the horses.
The sites are mostly level but quite close to each other. There is a picnic table at each site. Some trees. Satellite was difficult due to other rigs being so close and the trees. Neighbor's air conditioning was noises all day and night. Some road noise and nearby barking dogs.
The "camp store" sold soft drinks from a fridge for $1 each. Rent DVD's for $1, but limited selection. Book exchange.
Overall it was a good value and a good stop. We'd come back to visit Zion. - sfrantz

Very nice owners. Appeared that bath/showers were still being redone so didn't use them. Laundry was adequate. Sites close, dirt, grass with a table next to each site. Town of Glendale is pretty run down, lots of junk in yards. No dog facilities, nice shaded grass area by entry sign. - loves to camp w/dogs

Great location to venture to Bryce and Zion's. Horses in adjacent pasture pleasing to watch and feed apples to. Wifi is slow, and no Verizon cell service. Rock formation matching Bryce Canyon right above the park. - Steve_B

This is a family run park and an old KOA. It's a 40yr. old park and the currant owners have owned it for about 35yrs. It is only open about 5 months out of the year and is located right between Kanab and Panguitch. Although the park needs some updating and they are working on it they are in a very rural area good help is hard to find. The owners are doing their best to update and maintain the park. They are very nice people, easy to work with and they give a Military Discount where some parks don't. Great location, plenty of trees and grass, picnic tables and fire pits at every site. I'd stay here again no problem. - Dogpilot
Sep 2014 - $28.00
Quiet park in rural setting with mountain views, just off Hwy. 89. Good location to visit Zion and Bryce Nat. Parks. Gravel roads & fairly level gravel sites. This park could use some TLC - at some sites the water and/or electric was not in working condition. This meant we had no next-door neighbor, which was OK with us. Plenty of room to walk my dogs, with grass and shade trees. Working WiFi, and some pretty, friendly horses. We would stay here again. - FranM

This was a stop over trip from Arizona to Idaho, and the park is clean. I've paid a lot less/night for much better amenities for families. Prior to checking in, we were sent an email of all the "rules" separate from the reservation confirmation. Then when we arrived, the first thing that is said to us is "the strict rules." Kids can't run, ride bikes, be loud and there is no entertainment for children. Although the sign at the entrance says: "Slow, kids at play." Office stated that they cater to seniors. Anyway, they had a small pool, and children were allowed to go in it, but hours of pool are 1pm-7pm. It was very refreshing, after a long drive, though. That's a plus. Campground is all gravel, and the pups don't like it. No grass area, but I walked out of the campground to the adjacent public property with a grass area by sidewalk, and cleaned up afterwards. The campground is also near the main highway, but when we are in the trailer, we can't hear the noise. - Mommarazzi

We have stayed here many times passing thru for day trip to Zion. Wim & Thea are wonderful and really work very hard to keep the place up. Would highly recommend it. - AZSwede
Jun 2016 - $35.00
Good price for what is offered. Most sites are back-in only, so we had to disconnect. There is a small pool. It is older, but it was very clean. It does close early (7:30 pm), so you have to watch your time if you want to use it. The biggest problem is that the whole place is mostly dirt/gravel. When we went, in the middle of summer, it was extremely dusty! During rainy season, I imagine it might get muddy. Overall, it was a decent place to spend one night. - ADMD

Monday, April 29 – Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Utah This park is in the southwest section of Utah to the east of Zion and near Kanab. If you come out of route 9 heading east from Zion, you head south on 89 for about 4 miles than pick up route 43 for another 12 miles south. There are plenty of signs posted along the roads and the drive into the park is very nice. The park has juniper and pinion pines and steep red cliffs. Once you drive in and stop at the visitor center the ranger or hostess that checked us in was very nice and informative. The campground is just down the road and there are twenty two sites in one loop. No hookups, but water can be found at the dump station and bath house. The bath house is one of the best that we have seen in two months of traveling-very clean and updated. They do take reservations. If you don’t reserve you may have to check in every day to see if your site is still available. Our site was a nice pull through, level and shaded. What this park is known for is 1200 acres of pink sand dunes – beautiful. We even took the OHV tour offered in the parking lot through the sand dunes $$ with one other couple and a nice guide. It was a great time. I am glad we were there on a Monday, because on most weekends this park fills up with campers and day visitors, most with their own OHV’s and we heard the noise can be loud. Quiet hours start at 10 at night until 9 in the morning. When we left Zion, it was in the mid 90’s and I thought it would be unbearable here without hookups, but it wasn’t. It was cooler than Zion with a nice breeze blowing through all day. This was a one night stopover for us and we were so glad that we decided to camp here. - gsnakehill

The ride from Kenab to this park is one of the most beautiful I've driven. The park is a gem. The colors in the area are amazing. Sunset is the high-point of the experience. Trails over the dunes are good and there is an ATV trail network available. There is absolutely no communication available, but there is a pay phone at the Visitors Center. Staff was friendly. Restrooms/showers are new and great. The road into the area is narrow, but really worth the drive. - Red Wolf Deux

Only two of the showers were functional which caused some wait times to get cleaned up. These are located at the dunes and so it would be difficult to keep sand out of the showers (bring shower sandals). Sites are large and provide much privacy compared to the cramped sites of the cookie cutter resorts. Note: there is one site near the bathroom with hookups. Much ORV traffic, but quiet hours were respected. - summersj0

Location, Location, Location.... This is the closest RV park to Zion. If you do not have a towed its the best option for visiting Zion. we went in July when it was 97 degrees so if you want AC you need a full hookup so your rig does not melt inside.
The Virgin river is right on the camp ground . Bring some tubing rings and you can tube on the river. They charge $23 to rent them near the park. You start with tubes near the commercial area at the visitor center. You can take to last stop near shuttle stop 8 if you want. There are about 15 sites with 30 amp service right on the river primo spots!!!
You are on shuttle stop 3 close enough to bike or walk to Zion visitors center as well if the shuttles get full in summer time.
We rented shoes and a stick to hike the narrows. You do not need the shoes in the summer when water is warm but you need a good solid hiking stick. You can use a nice pair of sneakers that can get wet. Bring one for the nice beautiful unique hike! Bring a solid waterproof bag for your phone camera and lots of water (97 degrees in summer!)
The Showers and bathrooms were ACed as well. They are newly built and really nice now. Maintained clean.
The other reviews are spot on small sites, laundry, near neighbors, etc. I gave an 8* due to location. If you are looking for a plush resort go further from Zion and drive in. - Pumpman2
Jun 2016 - $42.00
$42 was the weekly rate. The campground is in an ideal location for visiting Zion, and is walking distance to stores and restaurants in Springdale. The town shuttle stops at the entrance to the campground, and will take you all through Springdale or drop you off just outside the Zion entrance, or you can walk to the Zion entrance from the campground. Verizon and AT&T worked well. The sites are extremely tight, especially for big rigs with tow vehicles. We lucked out and were assigned to what was one of the biggest sites in the RV park (which was still pretty small). The Virgin River runs around the edge of the park, and just on the other side of the river is the national park's Watchman Campground, so campers from both parks lined the river daily swimming and relaxing. We swam our dog in the river during our walks to keep him cool (temperatures were in the 90's during our visit), and waded across the river ourselves. The location and river were the highlights for us. The site size was the big negative for us. We'd consider returning, but may instead try the adjacent National Park campground next time instead. - LifeRebooted

Positive points: Zion shuttles are at the front of the RV park. There's a market (VERY expensive!), a few restaurants, and gift shops around the park. Take the shuttle to Springdale and enjoy a day of walking that quaint and darling town! Take the shuttle to Zion Nat'l Park for a day of hiking and sightseeing. The view from one side of our RV was fabulous once the other RV left.
Negative points: Internet is dismal. Difficult to connect and stay connected. My iPad never could hook up because it said the connection could not be found. My laptop also had difficulty connecting and WiFi was very slow. Laundry costs are outrageous! $2.00 to wash and $2.00 to dry for 45 mins....if your clothes do not get dry, it's another $2 bucks for another 45 mins that you don't need. No bill changer, no soap dispenser. Do your laundry before you arrive. Too expensive for a dirt/gravel pull-thru with no lawn (unless you count the tall weeds/grass around the small tree). Our site sloped downhill. RV sites are very close together and the lanes are fairly narrow. We had to back up and maneuver out because of a truck parked in front of the RV in front of us. We had to keep our shades down for privacy. Try to get an end space! The fire ring was in a weird location...close to the next space's sewer and near the road. The picnic table was near the fire ring. We didn't use the fire ring. - Pamilu

About 14 miles from the Zion National Park entrance, this park effectively caters to those who want luxurious surroundings, and charges accordingly. The access roads are paved. Sites are fairly level concrete pads separated by grass and a nice gravel patio with a table and fire ring. Although spacing is a bit tight, our site easily accommodated a 37' MH and toad. Water, electricity, and sewer hookups were convenient. The WiFi signal was strong and thruput reasonable, and they even have a Verizon booster so we could make calls by going to the office. We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry. Central facilities include an outdoor pool, a game room, and a social hall. Everything is extremely clean, neat and well cared for. As expected for such high-end accommodations, they charge a premium price. - DaveInOhio

Pleasant. Very nice. Our rig is large (45') so a little tight and gravel not paved sites. However we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Convenient to Zion and restaurants. The campground is very dog friendly and everyone cleans up after pet. Situated along Virgin River. Shade trees a plus. Nice store , well stocked. - Cake on the beach

Very nice park with long enough pull through some, well laid out full hookups, some shade, but the satellite still worked, lush green grass.....is a pleasure to sit outside here. Would definitely stay here again! - MerBee
Jun 2016 - $30.00
I give this an 8 because it's not full hookup and sites are close together. Other than that, it is great. With the temperatures in the area, it is nice that the national park campground has sites with electricity. The Virgin River flows along the edge of the park and many people were beating the mid-day heat by lounging in the river. Definitely a bonus to the campground. The sites are very close so if you are sitting outside you are going to hear everyone else's music and conversation. It's still better than any private/commercial campground. Location to the Zion park buses is unmatched. I can't imagine staying outside of this park. The vehicle entry gate to the park gets a line early in the AM and the parking lots fill quickly. When you are camping in the park though you simply walk maybe 1/4 mile to the visitor center. No traffic, no backups. There is a long line in the morning for the shuttle buses. Hikers like to get moving early. - WineStream
Jun 2016 - $15.00
Paid $15 a night with passport America. Electric only and most sites are back-in. The bathrooms were clean. No showers in campground. Picked loop A site 06. Inside the loop. Close to the visitor center but far enough away from the noise. Loved this campground because of location. Gladly gave up showers laundry and full hook up for location. Parking usually was full by mid morning so it was nice to just walk right to shuttles straight from campsite. Would definitely stay again. - schemmy

Spacious sites, some have more shade than others. Electric only at site, dump site and fresh water available at the exit. No showers in the campground. Beautiful setting. Easy access to town, visitor center, and park shuttle. Very popular park; reserve sites online early.
We stayed here 5 nights in a motorhome. - 76Gator
May 2016 - $26.00
This is a barely adequate park for a stay in a beautiful area of Utah. The park is poorly maintained. The roads are rough, the hookups are antiquated. For example the sewer openings are covered with stones; the 30 amp hookups consisted of two legs hod hot wires from a 50 amp hookup. One leg for each side-to-side head-to-tail parked camper. If you turned of electric on one camper, you turned off electric to both campers. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi service was superb - fast and easy, totally accessible. We would probably stay here again, as good RV Parks are difficult to come by in the Kanab area. With a little effort this park could upgrade itself to being more than barely adequate. - hoppytoad

Even though we reserved our week here, they put us in a "Pull-in" site that required 32 feet of sewer hose and 25 feet of power cable.
The place worked for what we needed, but the inconvenience wasn't necessary. Oh, with all the scenery here, our view was the business next door. WiFi was good as was 30AMP. - magic

The campground needs a little love. Shabby is a good description. Two of us in separate RVs were here. My friend couldn't get her rig in the reserved spot because of a tree, so she was moved to another that was so unlevel that the rear axle of her rig was off the ground.
When I arrived, the put me near her, not next to her as requested. Wifi was good.
Permanent residents were a bit sketchy.
The sour note for us was after we had been there four nights, we wanted to extend our stay so we could enjoy the area longer. I asked if we could add three more nights and get the weekly rate and was told no.
I understand it was perfectly in their right to not offer a deal, but in the interest of customer service, it would have been nice. The park only had half a dozen sites occupied, and I'm sure they'd rather have sites used at a reduced rate rather than leave them empty.
We left for another park up the road when our four nights were up. - Doggie Mom
Jun 2009 - $33.00
I guess I'll start with the good part. The park is high up in the mountains in a beautiful setting. It's heavily wooded and cool in the summer. The RV sites are poorly marked and nearly impossible to find after dark. Once you locate the sites are difficult to distinguish one from the other. These sites are right on top of one another, and leave little to no room for your tow vehicle. The layout of the park is pretty much a jumbled mess of private cabins, permanent campsites, rental houses, play grounds and group function areas. I'm never sure if I'm walking in someone's back yard or on public use areas. Overall, we are very disappointed and will probably not stay here again. - Brian and Jenny
Jun 2007 - $25.00
Lovely location, but dirt and some gravel sites. Spaces are very tight and ours (#5) required quite a bit of maneuvering to get enough room for both glides to open. This must be the ATV capital of the world. The city has marked ATV trails and sells maps of the trial system. Good if you like ATVs. - ms883
