7 Parks near Torrey, Utah

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

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

What a backdrop this place has! Gorgeous red rock cliffs on one side, similar to what you find inside Capitol Reef National Par, which is only a few miles up the road. We stayed here as part of a visit to the Park. My cousin rented one of the cabins, which was rustic, but well comfortable and cool. They gave us a space for our teardrop nearby. We were also near the bathrooms, which were clean. Owners live onsite. We dropped the trailer so we could more easily explore the park. Had a little trouble getting it back on the hitch because site was in deep gravel and we couldn't get purchase with the wheel. If you drop here, you may want to make sure you use a block. This is a nice place to stay and less crowded than the campground inside the park. - Rhonda A

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

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

Friendly owners who are meticulous about maintaining the park. It's really quiet. By late afternoon, into the evening, there is practically no traffic on these highways. We originally booked 2 nights but ended up staying 4. Would like to have stayed longer. This park is calm and relaxing and is in a beautiful area. My only complaint is that the wifi was spotty. This is the kind of park that we will go out of our way to come back to. You won't be disappointed. - steben6

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

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

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

We have a 34 foot RV and wanted somewhere close to Capital reef national park.
We searched the internet and came up with Sleepy Hollow Campsite at Caineville.
We gave them a call, and the guy was very polite, helpful and informative, he said he wasn't busy and we didn't need to reserve just come on down. Don't be put off when you first arrive, no it doesn't look much, but I love this place. The owner met us at the entrance and welcomed us to his RV park. Apart from a guy who is here long term we were the only ones. It is not full hook up, you do have electric, water is available and there is a dump site on site. This guy brings us fruit and veg from his garden and is so helpful and personable it makes me want to stay longer.It is a short drive to Capital reef NP and there is Hanksville (18 mile) and Torrey 29 mile), two small towns with fuel and shops.
The views are great, there are about 31 sites plus additional ones for tenting.
The showers and toilets are clean, hot and free to use.
I cant believe this one is so quite, but the main thing for me is Forests hospitality. 10 out of 10. - wadders

A no-frills very basic park that caters mostly to dirt bikers but is a fine choice as base camp for sightseers. Dirt/gravel sites are very close to level and there is some shade. There is nothing in the park itself to do; all the attractions are in the surrounding area and it's a place to come back to at the end of the day. There is no cellular service in this part of Utah, no nearby stores, no gas stations so come fully supplied. Internet is weak and slow at best and the very friendly and personable owner will tell you this up front. I will camp here again next time I am through the area. - Old Mountain Man
