Made a reservation based on the closest location to Canyonlands. No one was there to check us in, so we checked out the campground and bathrooms on our own. Bathroom and showers were disgusting. Left after about 30 minutes and checked into another RV park back in town. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I selected this park due to the positive reviews. I was sorely disappointed. We are now traveling in a Class B (Roadtrek) RV, and due to the small shower, we prefer to use park showers, if possible. The restroom/showers were deplorable. There was a 2" deep puddle in a sunken portion of the floor just in front of the men shower. The water was nearly black from stuff growing within. I would have been afraid to put any weight on that part of the floor in case it collapsed. All the faucets in the bathroom (shower, sink, etc.) were dripping. Attempting to wash my hands at the sink, the whole faucet twisted when I tried to turn it on. As for the rest of the park, it was "rustic" but the 30 amp electric tested OK and the water pressure was good and there were no problems with the sewer hook-up. It looks as if this park has fallen into a state of neglect. There were only two other campers on the night of our visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a GREAT campground. Quiet, peaceful, serene. The owners of this place have a great place to eat and a camp lodge. Has the BEST steaks in Utah! If you like it a bit old fashioned, this is the place. It's like stepping back in time 150 years. I LOVE this place. We had no problems getting in or out of this place with a 36 foot rig. If you find yourself in Monticello Utah, go 6 miles north of town: Roughlock is on the right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Definitely a "backwoods" location and operation. Their forte is their lodging and restaurant, not the campground which is a work in progress. It's a one man operation. Did not eat there but the local crowd was heavy on a Sat. night so the food has to be good. The rooms we saw were cute. Would probably rent one in future. But if you're looking for amenities for camping, go further to Moab! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We pulled in just before dark which was a good thing as the sites are a bit difficult to maneuver. We have a 24' and are towing a vehicle. I don't think a larger rig could use the park. The site we had could use some leveling, and the park itself could use a bit of updating. The bathroom/showers appeared to be clean but were quite worn and in need of revamp. The owner greeted us in the interesting restaurant on the premises and was a nice, down to earth guy. Nothing fancy but a safe place to park when traveling southeast Utah. We would stay there again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you can have "primitive camping" with full hook-ups, this is it! This place is not for the folks who like to park their RVs shoulder to shoulder in a parking lot. It's a bit rough around the edges, but the setting is outstanding. You're surrounded by trees, huge rocks (which they've thoughtfully outfitted with big ropes so you can climb them,) and great views of the valley below. There are probably 7-8 pull-thru sites of varying size. I'd say four or five could handle a 30+ trailer, and the others were better for shorter rigs. RV sites are gravel, and we had to raise about 3 inches to get level. There are no laundry facilities (appears that there used to be.) Hwy 191 is nearby, but we didn't really notice it much after dark, when the big trucks seemed to quit going by so often. The atmosphere is really Old West, and the owner/caretaker/chef is a nice and interesting man. The steaks at the restaurant were worth the price, too! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
