4 Parks near Vernal, Utah
Jun 2015 - $37.00
Daily rate doesn't reflect that we paid for 6 days and the 7th was free. A clean older park that could use some sprucing up with new paint etc. Spaces are gravel, level and under large mature cottonwood and maple trees that provide great shade. Office is manned on and off with a self check-in procedure that is a little confusing. Free Wi-Fi reception is good. It appears that parts of the city have grown around the park since it was first built and it is now surrounded by a school, small mall and auto parts and tire stores. Served our purpose and we would stay here again. - Shikepoke

This is an ok park for overnight. The sites have good grass but are pretty small. The grass area is about eight feet wide between campers. The WIFI was very bad. Even the owner's son couldn't get it to work. About what you would expect for this area and this price. I wouldn't want to have to stay there more than one night. - Linda Allan

Very convenient location with several new businesses close by.
Staff member could not have been more helpful with tips on what to see and the best time of the day to do so. When told of which satellite provider the visitor has, he will pick the appropriate site to facilitate a good signal. Good value for a park that is so close to town and it's surrounding attractions. - ex777driver

This was the oddest CG we've stayed at. First, the good news. The scenery is spectacular. From there it goes downhill very fast.
It mainly caters to boaters, fishermen and tent campers. RVs, especially motorhomes, are an afterthought. There are only 5 FHU sites and all can be reserved online. If you're a transient, your chances of getting a FHU for more than 1 night are slim. We chose to dry camp to avoid hassles but most of the sites are too small or too sloped for a small 30' moho. EVERY site is slanted AND canted. Even with levelers, it was tough to get level.
The employees are pleasant but not very effective. I saw at least 6 dogs roaming off leash. The girl at the gate didn't seem too clear on which sites were available. Most of the rules seem to be recommendations. - LM&TinView

$25 per night was for an unlevel asphalt pad site with full hookups (30 amp electric), covered picnic table, and fire ring. The four full hookup sites (plus one host site) are situated on an unlevel asphalt parking area that are cramped together with connections in inconvenient locations and virtually no place to park a tow vehicle. It was lucky for us that there were few others using the campground during our overnight stay. The electric only sites had a bit more room. The picnic tables and fire rings are on a large grassy area behind the sites. The campground is located on a reservoir, which is great for boating/fishing and beautiful scenery. Vernal is the nearest city and is surprisingly well equipped. AT&T cell service was non-existent. We used our Milliencom jetpack for internet access but it was really slow. There were no OTA TV stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

The nightly rate shown does not show the $8 reservation fee that is added for each reservation you make online.
This is a wonderful campground. We got site ST03 which is a full hookup site. Even though it says that the RV cannot be more than 30 feet in length, the loop sites are large enough for a motorhome and a toad. I have a 39 foot motorhome and was able to park the motorhome and the toad could go either in front or behind the motorhome. Some of the sites are back in sites and they would have been too short. There are full hookup sites, electric only sites and sites without any utilities. There are water faucets all over. I called and confirmed that I could fit into the site with the motorhome.
This is a WONDERFUL place. All sites have picnic tables but our site and others have a concrete pad with a full cover for the picnic table. The restrooms are clean. There is lots of room between sites. It is so peaceful and quiet! It is a small campground and all sites were an easy walk to the reservoir. We saw hawks and a lot of rabbits. There were trails along the water. There was a boat ramp and places to fish along the shore.
The park is convenient to Flaming Gorge and Dinosaur National Park.
We came on 40. We drove up 191 and decided we would not like to drive it in the RV, although many do. It is very windy and some areas do not have shoulders.
We would live to come to this park again! - Ludmilla

We enjoyed this park a great deal for our two nights. The sites are large enough for 42+ foot rigs (though their booking site says otherwise), our site was very private and had a covered picnic table, and it's right on the lake. Overall, it's a great place to spend time. The 50 amp power, water, and sewer all worked great. - kmghmg

Great little state park on the outskirts of Vernal. Very, very quiet and peaceful. The state park website lists this as 30' and under, but there are many sites that are plenty big. Our 43' fifth wheel plus our dually truck fit just fine in the pull-thru site #1 and would have fit in probably half of the other spots as well, including the back-ins.
The water pressure is a little low, but nothing we couldn't deal with. The 50 amp service worked great. Only complaint is that the back of that site is downhill. A lot downhill. So we had to put blocks upon blocks under our rear stabilizer legs. Quite a few of the other sites sit on a hill too, so come prepared with blocks just in case!
Otherwise, we had a great stay. Our kids wanted to stay longer! About a 30 minute drive out to Dinosaur NM from here. - GrowFam

Another small KOA park with typical gravel/dirt roads, walkways, etc., but clean and very friendly staff. We stopped by for one night while driving through the area and were pleasantly surprised by this campground. Only a mile north off the main road through town. Most of the park was reserved when we got our reservation, so the $60 nightly rate is for a nicer site with patio furniture, gas grill & fire ring. - San Diego Traveler

We found this campground to have friendly staff, level site, well maintained, concrete patio with fire pit and nice grass with easy access. Verizon and satellite worked good. We will definitely come back. - Advice

We stopped in Vernal for a overnight. The park is small but has space for larger rigs. Most all are pull through. Spots are level and gravel. Each space has a small cement patio and a picnic table. There is a dog park with grass. Verizon signal is very good. Cable stations at the site are very good with many stations. The staff was friendly and helpful in letting us choose our site. Each site has grass with a larger grass area next to the dog park. We would stay here again. - wtravlr1
