Easy access, fresh unlevel gravel sites, paved roads.

You will pay 25 cents for each 1 1/2 minutes of water in the shower.

Meaning, by the time it's hot and you do your thing, a buck and a half.

A Chisel. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Everything in Vernal is on the main drag, and this CG is about midway.

Great for seeing the sites.

Only stayed one night. Park office not always manned during the day. Nicely shaded sites. Good WiFi. Right in the downtown area of Vernal, just a little hard to find, only small signs visible from hwy. I paid for 50 amp electric only. Water & sewer are $1 more each. Air-conditioning was $1 additional. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fossil Valley RV Park is right in the middle of town on Hwy 40. The staff is extremely friendly and freely offers travel and sight seeing information. Level gravel sites with lush grass between the sites are well back from the road with no road noise, and there are no train tracks anywhere! It is directly across the street from Smith's Grocery and right next door to a Maverik gas station. The sites are all large and very well shaded with mature cottonwood and maple trees. All tree limbs are pruned to accommodate any height rig. You won't be sorry you read this and picked this park! We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly and accommodating owners. Pull through sites were level and shady and good length and separation. Water pressure and voltage were very good. We were only spending the night en route to our next destination. Called in afternoon to check on availability and reserved site for that evening. Owner said to call 30 minutes prior to arrival to ensure someone would be at office. We would definitely stop here again if in the area. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice shaded, level sites. Some road noise during the day, but quiet at night. Close to town center and lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Close to Dinosaur National Monument. Would stay here again. Only a few sites with view for Sat. TV. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

The host should get a 10 for personality alone. The park is well maintained with gravel driveways. There was a lot of mature trees. We had a level pull through site and did not have to unhook the toad in the driveway; however, it required a 25 foot reach to the screw in sewer connection. Our motor home connection is in the middle, not at the back. Water had good pressure and we had a 50 amp electrical connection.There were over 105 cable TV channels. The free WiFi strength was good. The response was excellent. Verizon Wireless was nonexistent; ATT wireless was 5 out of 5 bars. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

All kinds of fast food places within walking distance just across the road. There is even a food market there. If you don't have the proper connections, ask the host and he may have something to loan to you.

Beautiful shaded RV park. Sites are level and the place is well kept. Only complaint was locals driving too fast around the campground to get to the dump station. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with wonderful trees when hot. Good location for taking in the sites.. Did have an incident with a dog loose in park. Owner did call the police immediately and dog was removed. Did think owner could have come and asked me if I was ok. The son next day did ask me when I went to office and was very nice and concerned My husband did talk to him but it was me that fell with dog coming at me. Lucky I was not bitten . But that probably would not happen again and we would go back to park again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

In town and close to highway 40 with traffic noise all night. Owner was friendly. Grocery and fuel across street. Likely the best park for a Dinosaur National Park visit unless you have a small enough rig to dry camp in the park. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shady park - lots are close together though. Lots of noise from the road, but it did die down at night. Gentlemen in office is very nice and helpful. Had FHU pull through site for our 34 ft 5er and dually -- didn't have to disconnect for the night. Very helpful! We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Manager was very friendly and helpful, providing information and maps of places for us to visit. He also let us pick out our site. We chose #1 because it had lots of shade.....and that was our error. Yes, we could get satellite tv, however, it's the FIRST site for everyone to pass by and the spaces were so close to road we kept losing sat every time someone drove or walked by. The site was graveled, but the edges were mud. The street noise was tolerable during the day but the tire service business next door was more than irritating. To enter the park is a little confusing...better signs would have been helpful. I doubt we'd stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very easy to get onto the Main road to head out to any and all tourist sites and good restaurants (Golden Corral is across the road.....a 4 lane highway). Also shopping for groceries, etc is close by.

We stayed in Vernal at an in town friendly park that was way more reasonable than the KOA and since we are riding and visiting places every day, we don't use anything but the full hookups and the site space. Site was long enough for both 36 foot toy hauler and truck. Did have to let tailgate down in the road, but it was not a problem for anyone in the park, and the angle was great for unloading and reloading he motorcycle. Each site has picnic table and shade which was very nice. Bath house and laundry but no pool, playground etc. The town has grown up around the park. The two outside rows are back ins and looked like used by seasonal or long term. The inside two rows are pull thrus and mostly used by travelers. Vernal was a good base for Flaming Gorge and both parts of Dinosaur National Monument (Dino bones in UT, canyons in CO). We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly owners that go out of their way to provide information on area sites. The park is older with many long term residents but their sites are kept clean and the owner walks around the park picking up any twigs blown down or debris. The sites are close with neighbor's sewer hook up right outside your door but our site accommodated out 34 foot 5th wheel and truck with no problem. It is very quiet even though located in the center of town and there are many large trees which give nice shade. We were told just to pick the site we wanted in the center row of pull-thru sites which are used for "daily" guests...only 2 open and because of the trees we were not able to get Dish reception. If in the area we would return. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fossil Valley is a small RV park located in the town of Vernal, UT which offers basic amenities. Gravel pads are fairly level and feature grass strips with picnic tables and mature trees. Internet service is provided, but was only able to reach sites near the office during our stay. Cable TV was offered for an extra $1 per day, but is in the process of being upgraded, so available channels and reception was changeable from day to day. We were told that Internet service to the back of the park has been affected by the cable upgrade, and it is expected to improve once the upgrade is completed. Office hours seem to be very casual, but instructions are posted for guests arriving when a manager is not available. This park does not recycle. We would happily stay here again.

Tips for other Campers:

Of course the biggest attraction in this part of Utah is Dinosaur National Monument. Additionally, a lot of tourist information, including brochures for about 10 nice day trips in the Vernal area, is available in the park office. There is a large Smiths grocery store across the street from the RV park.
