Best feature about this park is the proximity to town and the fact that it's on the shuttle route. Otherwise, it's VERY crowded and the sites are close to one another. Bath & shower facilities are dated and the "one token per person per day" rule is strictly enforced. Nice sites on the river but no tubing was allowed this early in the season due to the high levels and water temperature. Pool was nice though, as well as laundry facilities. Located in canyon between two hills so DirecTV service is a problem in some spots. But the cable worked as a substitute.
Absolutely stunning state park in incredible remote canyon setting. Sites are beautiful and spacious. Great visitor center. And the restrooms and showers were probably the best on our two week trip. This park was obviously designed by a camper, as they didn't miss anything in the layout (except hookups!). The only reason for my lower rating is that the rules were very restrictive - generators only allowed noon - 4 PM. No cell service here either (AT&T). We left a day earlier than our planned departure date.
Very isolated park in / near Capitol Reef National Park. Not much to do if you're looking for activity but a beautiful park that is very different from other parks in this region due to the elevation (7000-8000 feet) and the green setting. Cool creek that runs through the park that entertained our kids. Beautiful waterfall hike nearby that's worth the effort - moderate difficulty. Great camp host this summer! The drive south on Hwy 12 to Bryce Canyon and Zion is breathtaking at times.
We stayed three nights over Memorial Day weekend, so it was pretty crowded. While I had concerns when viewed from the road, the place turned out to be one of our favorites on our trip. Our kids loved the pool and the morning pancake breakfast was great. The laundry facilities were nice and much needed in the middle of our two-week trip. While the sites were pretty close, ours was on the outer edge so we had a nice view. It's a few miles from the heart of Moab on the south end of town and there's no shuttle, so be prepared to drive to everything (including a 20 minute drive to Arches and a 40 minute drive to Canyonland / Deadhorse Point). The staff was great and the restrooms were the nicest of our trip and very clean. Good balance to the "dry camping" at Deadhorse and the national parks in Utah.
Nice campground in a nice park. Visitor's center was really cool with lots of exhibits. Hiked the trail to Deadhorse Point: great view of the canyons. Close to Canyonlands National Park. Great sunset! We were in site #2, which wasn't the most level site but I think most of them had problems. There's a BLM campground just up the road as well that looked pretty nice if this one if full. No showers but a nice park overall.
Great park in the middle of nowhere in a scenic canyon! Accommodations are clean and up-to-date. Kids loved the pool and hiking around the park (there's a cool arch a short distance from the campground.) Very nice laundry room as well. Monument Valley tours take you to places that you can't get to by car. I'd recommend the 3.5 hour tour. The Stagecoach restaurant (associated with the Lodge) was disappointing as the food quality was subpar. I'd come back to the park in a heartbeat but would avoid the restaurant. Visit the Cameron Trading Post near Cameron, AZ if you're in route from the Grand Canyon area, it was worth the stop.
This is a nice, quiet park that's close to Grand Canyon and well maintained. It is very isolated with absolutely nothing to do aside from travel into the National Park area. It is great if that's what you're looking for, but not great if you have kids and are looking for more activities. It is good for a "home base" though if you're doing day trips into the canyon. It has pit toilets only and no showers.
