What a beautiful setting! A mini Bryce Canyon without the crowds. Since we were traveling with relatives in a separate camper, we took one of the double sites that don't allow Senior/Access Pass discounts. It was worth the extra fee. Although the campground is near the highway, noise wasn't a problem (lots of trees helped with screening). Flush toilets and clean showers were nearby. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The only negative for me was that a curved access road on a hill was only one lane wide. Could be a problem if meeting another rig. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Travel Trailer.

Bryce Canyon National Park is only 10 miles away, but if you're a hiker, be sure to check out the trails near this campground. Maps are available at the nearby visitor center. The Golden Wall Trail is spectacular.

Beautiful location close to Bryce Canyon. There is a busy highway close but pretty quiet at night. We stayed fairly far back away from the highway. The grounds are very clean. There are hot showers. The scenery is lovely. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Travel Trailer.

Contrary to prior reviews, we found several problems with this campground. The road noise in July is very bad. Utah 12 is the main road to Bryce Canyon NP, just 10 miles up the road. It's uphill and all the road warriors have their foot into the accelerator, causing their engines the whine, scream, or roar. At times, our 31' motorhome was literally rattling.

To make things worse, their water system was broken so the advertised showers, flush toilets, fresh water, and dump station were unavailable.

The host was very pleasant but things were clearly broken above her pay grade.

The site is asphalt. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Motorhome.

Bryce Canyon NP is 10 miles up Utah Hwy 12. Like most NPs, it's a zoo during the summer. I plan to return in the fall to make better photos.

This campground is a jewel. We stayed in site 8 loop A, in a 36' tucked back in the trees with privacy, and across from restrooms and showers. We chose this campground over the two N.P. campgrounds at Bryce. Campground hosts were friendly and helpful. Roads and RV pads are paved, and the picnic table and fire ring are on a concrete patio. If it had full hookups, it would have been a 10. The RV was shaded from the trees, but the patio got a fair amount of sun. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice U.S. Forest Service campground. Sites are well-spaced and all have paved areas on which the picnic tables, grills and fire rings sit. Water is easy to find as there are spigots scattered around in the various campground loops. Dump station area was paved. Only negative is the lack of cellphone (AT&T) and Internet (Verizon.). Dish worked just fine. The rate reflects our Senior Pass discount. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very basic Forest Service campground. Pit toilets, no hookups etc. Very convenient to Bryce Canyon, just down the road. We'd stay again. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Motorhome.

This campground is a Gem. The colors in the canyon are the brightest red that I've ever experienced. The host was most helpful and friendly. It's quiet there, in spite of being near the highway into Bryce Canyon NP. There is actually Wi-Fi in the loop on the right, but Verizon works adequately for phone and text is the other loop. There is a great trail, some five miles in length, that rivals those in Bryce. It's on my list for a return visit. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Motorhome.

Red Canyon is a smaller version of Bryce Canyon, just as beautiful. Campground is near hiking, biking trails and a great base for Bryce. Only 10 miles to supplies. Cleanest vault toilets I've ever seen. Recycling available, water and dump station. A great value and beautiful! We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Travel Trailer.

This park sits right next to the scenic byway 12, so there is some road noise. This park is NOT very big rig friendly! The loops in the road are tight and they are lined with sharp boulders. We tore up a tire, saw a motorhome bounce over a rock, and later talked to a volunteer at the forest service visitor center who had also torn up a tire in this campground. If you are in a smaller rig, the sites have beautiful views and there are trails right from the campground. A paved bike trail is adjacent to campground and highway 12. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Fifth Wheel.

The May 2009 review is indeed not this campground. This is a nice, no hookup US Forest Service campground. The access roads and sites are paved or hard packed gravel. It’s in a forested area with ample space between the majority of sites. There are pit and flush toilets and one shower facility. There are a couple of community water faucets to fill holding tanks. There is a posted diagram of the campground near the entrance: it’s worthless. The left side of Loop B is the place for big rigs with several back-in and three crescent shaped pull through sites. Sites in Loop A vary in size. The campground is right at Red Canyon FS Park and about 20 minutes from Bryce NP. The fee is based on a Golden Age/Access rate discount and the rating is based on like, no hookup campgrounds. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground but not big rig friendly due to the narrow road and vegetation at roadside, overhanging trees and close trees at sites. Careful planning is needed for the slideouts. We mentioned tree-trimming to the forest service and the host so hopefully some will be done. The area is beautiful. We will TRY to stay again in our 40' motor home and car. There are flush toilets, no showers, no hookups. There is a dump station. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Motorhome.

The "Red Canyon Campground" is a NFS "Dry Camping" type campground located approximately 4 miles East from the intersection of Hwy 89 and Hwy 12 on the right hand side going East towards Bryce Canyon. The first review here is not for this campground but for the "Red Canyon RV Park" (a private park)located approximately 1 mile from the same intersection on the left going East on Hwy 12. I have also given the correct website for this campground (hopefully it will be changed as it was wrong also). The $6 rate is for Golden Age Passport otherwise the rate is $12. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a rustic campground directly next to highway 12 on the way into Bryce Canyon National Park approx 15 miles before the visitor center and seven miles from Panguitch. The management was friendly and helpful. Road noise from highway 12 dies down after dark. Full hookups. Very pet friendly. The campground appears to have new campground cabins, but the campground itself could use a lot of cosmetic fixing up to make it more attractive. Roads into the park are gravel and the sites are level with no shade. We were level when I parked. We camped there two nights while seeing Bryce Canyon.

A great forest service campground. It's divided into 2 sections, I prefer the Western side. Paved sites with enough vegetation in between to give privacy. Has a very nice double dump station. Beautiful area just a few miles from Bryce Canyon. Be sure and visit National Forest Visitor Center just west of Campground. They have maps of the area along with much more. We camped at Red Canyon Campground (Dixie National Forest) in a Travel Trailer.
