The park is in a beautiful setting as others have stated. Sites are spread out with paved and level sites, fire ring and table. There are no hooks for RV's, but sites are big. Water is available in several locations, and dump station. The campground website says WiFi is available for $5. This is not true. There is no Wifi, no TV, and we had no phone service. The park was almost empty during our stay (weekday in mid-August). As alternative park, Fruita campground in Capitol Reef NP is very similar in features but we thought it was more attractive park with things to see/walk to in the immediate area. Again no phones or hookups in Fruita. - Traveling_swallow

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 and clean. Views of the red cliffs behind. The owners are in the process of selling and moving, but were very nice. - kbellco

The lady who checked us in was a bit quirky but friendly and we didn't see much of anyone after that. This park is small, with only 15 spaces, but was sufficient for our needs and we saw beautiful sunsets. It was a great value and we would stay here again. - Fun Full-timers

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

We tried to get reservations a few days prior to our expected arrival, but they were booked up except for dry camping in "the field". Since we expected to arrive late in the afternoon, we took it. It turned out they were booked because of large caravans of foreign tourists; there were rows of Cruise America RV's. Worked out fine for us. Staff was cordial and efficient. Gift shop is extensive; did not try their meal at the pavillion. Nice setting, but the weather can get wild; we were rock'n & roll'n most of the first night! - Pharmboy

Beautiful views in all directions with easy access to Capitol Reef National Park. When we were there, the campground filled up every night but it was still quiet. The sites are close (but I've seen way closer in my travels). Our site (Site 34) had a small grass area and nice tree. Pull-through, gravel, pretty level. The sites were a little short and tow vehicles were parked every which way just to fit. There were firepits at each campsite but with truck parking, there really wasn't space to use the firepits (our neighbor's slide would have gotten pretty hot!). New bathhouse on east side with 2 private showers, 2 private toilet stalls and a new laundry room. There was a wait for the showers. The end sites would be much nicer if you can get them because they provide more space to sit in your chairs and enjoy the spectacular views (Site 30, Site 40, etc.). Very nice welcome center and store. You can order fresh-baked muffins for pickup in the morning. Very unique, quaint service although the muffins were mediocre. We thought Thousand Lakes was a good value for full hookups. I would return to this campsite, but my husband wasn't too impressed. - Smashcamp

This RV Park is located just west of Torrey, making it an ideal location for visiting Capitol Reef Natl Park. Gravel sites, we had to add a board to be level in our pull through, but trees were nicely trimmed. Easy check in, office/store with lots of souvenirs for sale. Great place to spend a couple days while exploring the great outdoors, we would go back. - EFE Dawn

This park is closest to the west entrance to Capitol Reef National Park. The owner is friendly and accommodating. He keeps the park spotlessly clean and expects his guests to do likewise. There are cabins for rent, a dog play area, tenting areas, dish washing station, laundry and very clean restrooms. The cable and Wi-Fi worked well. Site was level and water pressure was good. It was just tight enough with the tree at our site to prevent the awning from opening. - rfmscat

We really liked this little park. As you drive in you get a sense of tidiness. The interior roads are wide and the sites are angled for good maneuvering. Nice grass between sites. Utilities worked well. Wifi worked well for us (we have a booster). Verizon signal (extended network) was strong. Bathrooms were clean, did not use the showers, laundry was closed during our stay. We would definitely stay here again. - cwier

I agree with other positive reviews. This is a very clean campground with nice landscaping. It was full mid-September, and we just barely got reservations a week in advance. They put our 34-ft Class A in a great back-in at the far end of the park, with grass on both sides and trees for shade. Although there is no fenced pet area, there was a large grassy field next to a farm where horses would come looking for a treat. We left our small dog in the RV while exploring Capitol Reef. It never occurred to us not to (if there was such a rule, we didn't know about it). There are only two negatives, neither serious. First the wifi was OK, but the Verizon 4G was much better. Second, there is no view of the stunning red cliffs on the north side of Torrey, which light up at sunset. There was a good view of the mountains to the south. - Dr. John

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
