This is a great place to stay. Very Quiet and clean. Fairly easy to navigate. Had a slight problem with some tree limbs but the Camp Host took care of the problem very quickly. Pull through was easy in and out. No problems navigating the interior roads. Will return if ever in this area. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a 4 night stay here, 2 spots. First one, 7 had a view of the lake out of our front window. Spot 3 did not. 7 no shelter, 3 did. It was a decent park, camp hosts were active and helpful. The tables were aluminum, there was a fire pit. It was just dusty with a fine sand it seemed. The sights are private, especially the pull through side ones, with plenty of room. There was a little path to get to the lake and a boat ramp right on the other side of the CG. Our only problem were he trees, especially by site #1, which scratched the heck out if our RV. We told the hosts and they said they would tell the CG to get them trimmed. We had satellite and weak Verizon signal We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This state park is in a convenient location, only about 5 miles from town, and a half-hour drive from Dinosaur National Monument or Flaming Gorge. The campground is very small, and looks a bit old and tired compared to many other state park campgrounds we've stayed in. Our site was pretty large with plenty of privacy which was nice. There are 7 or so full hookup sites which is a nice surprise for a state park, and they're reasonably priced. Unfortunately most of them are on a steep hill so most of those sites are not level. Our 37' motorhome and tow car had no problem fitting in our pull-through site, but we had to drive our back tires up onto about 5 inches of stacked boards for leveling. The rest of the sites are electric-only or no hookups, and we did hear a few generators running from rigs in the no hookup sites. There's a vault toilet near site #8 which was pretty stinky. AT&T and Verizon were almost unusable until we put up our booster... then they were decent but definitely not fast. The state park was pretty quiet during the week but during the weekend it was packed with boaters, jet skiers, paddle boarders, and others having fun out on the lake. We found a nice secluded beach near the campground where our dog loved going in for a swim every day, but otherwise there's not much in the way of trails for longer hikes out of the campground. When exiting the campground we ran into some major low-hanging branches near site 28. We had high winds every day, so we could never use our awning for shade. Not sure if this was unusual or normal for the area. The gate to the state park closes at 10pm but we never had reason to be out that late. Overall this is a nice scenic campground, but site selection should be done carefully depending on your rig size, and you should have a cell booster if you want connectivity. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Electric hookups only. Water is available but is shared so you can't stay hooked up to it. Dump station available. No wifi. No Verizon cell service. It was a very warm few days there and very few of the sites have any shade at all. Many picnic tables have patio covers but the bugs were pretty bad so we didn't try to brave the heat. The lake is nice with a boat ramp and beach. It is used by many powerboats. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for six nights and thought this was the best campground during our three week trip. Our site was spacious and level, the scenery was beautiful, and the staff very helpful and friendly. There is lots of great dog walking places as well. We would very definitely stay here again. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Small state park with several nice spots for larger RVs although the road is narrow with a couple of tight turns. Reservoir is nice for those who want to swim, fish or boat. Lots of places to walk. Some sites have full hookups, others just water and electric. We stayed 4 nights to explore the area. Would stay again. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is conveniently located to all that the Vernal UT area has to offer including Dinosaur National Monument and Flaming Gorge. Someone knew what they were doing when they laid out the campground because you have total privacy and a beautiful view from Every site. We were in a full hook up site on the exterior of the loop and could not see another camper. The camping spaces are asphalt pads and hook up was easy with utilities placed well. Check the campground information about the site length and utilities because there is quite a variance from long pull throughs to shorter back in sites and from full hook ups to electrical only. Some of the sites also have covered picnic tables. The campground is located on the edge of a reservoir that appears to offer decent fishing and boating. While we were there, the water in the reservoir was low because the local farmers rely on the reservoir for irrigation. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

A visit to Dinosaur National Monument is a must. Go through the west entrance of the park to the Quarry Visitor Center. A free shuttle takes you up to the main exhibits. The Fossil Trail hike back down to the lower visitor center was about 2 miles and there were dinosaur fossils to observe. Don't miss the hike near the Red Fleet Reservoir called Dinosaur Tracks. This 2 mile round trip hike takes you to the edge of the reservoir where you can walk along with actual dinosaur footprints.

The Steinaker I stayed at was definitely not a 9 or 10 as some of the reviews say. We had site 18 which was an easy pull thru with some shade. Have to pick your site carefully as they run from full hook ups to no facilities. Some also require backing in up a somewhat steep incline while others appeared they would be hard to level. There is also a drainage dip at one part of the loop which my 30' ft 5th wheel rear hitch dragged on. Loop road is narrow with two way traffic. We met a trailer coming towards us when we were leaving. Fortunately he could pull into a site otherwise one of us would have had fun backing up. Next time while probably stay in Vernal at a private park. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a partial hookup site. The water was right outside the rig, but we were asked not to stay hooked up so others on no hookup sites could use it also. There are many faucets available. Large trees, quiet, beautiful views of the reservoir and lots of wildlife. I have a 40-footer and had plenty of room. Covered picnic table. Paved roads and sites. The camp hosts patrol constantly, keeping everything clean and in order. Lovely place. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Swain Brothers restaurant in Vernal was excellent. It's in a hotel and I wouldn't have known to go there but for a recommendation. Vernal has tons of shopping, restaurants, and a Wallmart.

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! We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

After spending tons of time researching places to stay well visiting Dinosaur National Park, and coming up with nothing but "campgrounds" with people living in them etc...I did one last goggle search and came up with Steinaker State Park, little further from the park but SO WORTH IT!! What a hidden gem, many sites with full hook-up, pull throw, views, space between, nice tables with covers, clean bathrooms, no showers. Right on the reservoir, great for boating, fishing...and the views and sunset amazing! Do yourself a big favor and drive on by all those "campgrounds" in town and visit this Great State Park of UT. ATT cell work ok, and able to get DirTv from many sites. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

$28 per night was for a level asphalt pad site with full hookups, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground has many large junipers as well as low growing plants separating the generous sites. The campground scenery is beautiful. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Vernal is the nearest city and it has a surprising amount of stores/restaurants that most everyone would find adequate. AT&T cell service was two bars of 4G. We used our Milliencom jetpack for internet access as it received three bars of 4G LTE. There were six OTA TV stations. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.
