As many know, I do not give out 10's but this rv park is a very high 9. Sites are large and nice - gravel and grass. Staff is great. And prices very reasonable. In the 178 different rv parks we have stayed they have, by far, the finest gift shop of any. And reasonably priced. Laundry was great - did not use the restrooms. Highly, highly recommend Thousand Lakes. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Capitol Reef, of course. And the Escalante Highway drive Torrey to Escalante (not recommended for RV's).

After reading all the rave reviews, we were slightly disappointed in this park. Our site was level and wide enough for our slides but too short to park our truck either in front of or behind our 40' trailer; we had to park across in front of the trailer in order to stay off the road. The roads were well-maintained gravel. There was plenty of grass due to plentiful water and it was neatly mowed. The laundry was very small with only 2 washers and dryers. The restrooms were clean but very small and could use an update. The store had a huge selection and unbelievable low prices. The staff was helpful and friendly but we were not escorted to our site. The views from the campground were fantastic. The wi-fi was extremely slow and there was no cable but we were able to pull in several stations with the antenna. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There were several small restaurants in Torrey but the Red Cliffs Restaurant was really great. They had gluten-free pizza and pasta plus a wide selection of burgers including bison and elk.

Good Sam rate for a level, pull-thru, FHU, 50 amp site for our 33' motorhome. Most sites have trees and some shade. Roads and sites are gravel. Park WiFi was slow and connection was unreliable. Verizon cell worked, but MiFi reception was poor. Satellite TV reception was good. The park was quiet at night. We enjoyed our three night stay while visiting Capitol Reef National Park. We would stay again. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Though groceries are available at the general store in Torrey, it would be better to stock up before arriving at the park.

Best park store going and the staff is as good as they come. Rest rooms are clean but a bit on the small side. Sites have shade, grass and tables and beautiful views all around. WiFi can get pretty slow when full but works well when the crowds leave. Overall, a very nice park. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice restaurant a mile down the road towards town, Torrey Inn & Cafe.

This is a family-owned/operated campground with terrific views of the surrounding red rock features, and Torrey provides great access to Capitol Reef NP. Sites here are gravel pull-thrus that were easy to level. Nice cottonwoods throughout the CG give some good shade & break up the line-up of rigs. CG is appropriately landscaped and offers horseshoe pits, a pool, a playground, a big green lawn and several other recreational spots. WiFi was slow - we opted to use our hot spot instead; Verizon connectivity was good. Bathroom (only 1 toilet and shower in ladies room; two each in the mens) and laundry facility (2 w/d) were a bit of a hike to get to and were definitely in need of updates. We were only told about the facilities behind the office, but I think there are other bath/laundry places in the park - perhaps designated for the cabin users? We had a nice stay here and would definitely return. If they'd update the bathrooms and laundry room, this place would go from 'good' to 'excellent.' We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Going the extra mile, this CG features a Grill (we didn't order any food from here; menu looked to be grilled steaks with appropriate side dishes) and has fresh muffins available for 8am pickup in the office. If you want to drive for miles - pun intended ;o) - head down to Boulder, UT, and dine at Hell's Backbone Grill. Google it - it's a farm-to-table, exceptionally-rated restaurant in the middle of nowhere... fabulous!!!

Stayed 4 nights, our site was new so no trees, but good view of mountains. Personnel are super friendly and very good at their jobs. Lots of amenities if you wanted to use, great gift shop. Park was very clean and nicely laid out. Great base camp for Capital Reef touring. 2 laundries, nice restrooms. Loved how peaceful campground was. Want to go back again soon. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to go to Historic Gifford home for yummy treats and gifts, also "you pick" fruit orchards.

Great amenities for families. Friendly staff. Well maintained. WiFi was weak when park was full, when it was empty it was better but still not good. Everything else was great. RV service next door which we had to use and were thankful it was there. They have nightly food service which we did not use but looked well attended. Out of town. Beautiful views. Amazing sunsets over the Mesa. We would go back if in the area. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Gift shop on site had the best prices in town. They had a few essential groceries and ice. Loa, 16 miles away, had a Food Town and Lowes type hardware store with reasonable prices. Groceries in Torrey were HIGH.

Beautiful setting & sunsets...very nice and accommodating staff. Sites are reasonably size & good space to pull in and park...Site had concrete pad and was level. F/H/U + wifi all worked well. Pool is small but well kept. Roads were gravel & dirt. Bathrooms were fairly clean but old and in need of an update. No cable but we were able to pull in all the major over the air networks and a few others. We would come again. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not much in Torrey but on site there is RV/CarRepair and a beauty salon. Nearest real grocery is 18 miles away....so provision before coming.

When we made reservations, I told them we had a very large 45' motorhome. When we got there we were assigned a fairly short pull through that would not allow me to put out our slides due to tree limbs. They said we have Prevost's here all they time and they fit. Anyway they sent someone to check the site and the although he could cut one limb off, he couldn't cut two limbs off the tree. I was moved to another site that was not overly large, but we fit. The sites are gravel, most with shade. We never got the wifi to work, but that is not unusual for campgrounds. The pool is very small. The on site store has lots of things including local crafts. The prices seemed very good. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park was large, clean, and green with grass and trees. A bit out of town on the west side but since the town is tiny it really made no difference. Roads were gravel and sites were level gravel. Each site had a fire ring and picnic table. The view to the north of red mesas was spectacular and changed as the sun moved.

Staff was very helpful and the store was well stocked with needed items like milk, bread, beer and some rv products. Pool was nice with large grass play area and a hour in AM and PM for adults only. Our site was right across from the tent area which was full our first night but everyone was polite and even kids were well behaved.

Interesting they had a laundry in the far east cabin area that was open 24 hours. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We did find a fantastic restaurant called La Cueva on the east side of town. It was the best Mexican food at a great price. I would visit this area again just to eat there.

This camp is set up about the best I have ever seen including our site was level. The owner can point out which sites you can get satellite from. The only negative is that Verizon cell service was horrible and that isn't the campgrounds fault. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent location near Capitol Reef National Park. The park was laid out well and very well kept. Pride of ownership was obvious by the attention to detail. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We rented a jeep from the campground office. Four wheel drive is necessary to fully explore the local area.

Second visit here. The park is spacious and the sites have good space between them. All are gravel with many pull throughs and a number of back-ins on the perimeter. There are two locations for rest rooms and showers. One is quite old and a bit rustic but well maintained and clean. They offer dinner in a cookhouse atmosphere week nights. I tried it but felt I could do better at the several other restaurants nearby. There is a large gift shop on site. The staff were very friendly. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Capital Reef National Park is ten miles away and warrants at least two days to see it. Many hiking options plus several road tours. If you have a high clearance vehicle, consider the Burr Trail to the south, or the Cathedral Valley loop road to the north. Four wheel drive not necessary, but be sure to check road conditions with a park ranger.
