Pay for showers. Pit toilets. But with hookups, not a real problem. They do tell you that they have to truck in water and want you to be careful with your water use. It is a request, not a mandate. Very quiet and woodsy. I think the sites are a bit close together, but we did have good neighbors. It is a 40 mile drive approx to the North Rim. I'd prefer to be closer, but there is no other choice unless you dry camp totally without electricity. Have not investigated those options. Camp ground manager was most helpful and even loaned me a drill so I could install a handle on our screen door for easy closure. Wonderfully quiet!!!
Rustic defines this campground. It is miles away from I-70 on a gravel road. Supposedly, you can avoid the gravel but I did not see a route on the map or my GPS. It has new managers, but I don't think they have a clue how to run the campground. The pool was not clean and the hot tub was very old and I would not subject my body to that at any price. Unless they are maintained and kept hot enough, some really nasty bugs develop in hot tubs. I know from personal experience. The sewer line of my site extended horizontally to the ground with no way to properly seal my sewer pipe so it would not leak. When we dumped (grey only), water spewed out on the ground. AND, it was new sewer pipe too, indicating unskilled and unknowledgeable installation. It was quiet and the site was level gravel. But, I could see a lot of sites close to us and if they got busy, it would not be quiet at all. Pass on this park and find a State Campground if you want quiet and rustic. OH: the showers were a disaster. My wife wanted to wash her hair and found NO hot water AND water savers that barely provided any water for showering. No, we'll definitely NOT return to this park.
This is definitely a big rig friendly campground and there were a lot of big rigs there. Great showers without water saver heads!!! I love that. Sites are a bit too close together, but the scenery is great with towering red rock all around you. This is a very well maintained campground. Monument Valley has a LOT of activities and is worth more than a single night's stay. There is bus service to take you where you need to go too. I'd definitely stay here again.
Another Natural wonder. This is a great park and a good place to visit Canyon Land National Park as well. There is not water available so you have to conserve that resource. There is a dump station, but no rinse water for post dumping. You have go to into Moab to find water and that is a 22 mile drive. There are some great picnic spots at the point. I'd recommend that people go out to the point for their meal and the sunset view and then move back to the campground for sleeping. The park host was busy power washing the tables at the sites. They were immaculate. I don't think this is normal practice, but he certainly wanted the park to be at it's best.
OK: this is not a park with "amenities" like pool, WiFi, and activities. It's a place to commune with the red rocks of Utah in all its glory. The sites are beautiful and level with some concrete pads suitable for big rigs. However, be prepared for DRY camping. In fact, to get water, you have to drive into Moab. There is no dump station at this park. I loved being here. If you want to stay, I recommend getting a reservation over the Internet very early.
No showers and pit toilets. This is a decent state park and though the sites are not totally level, it did not take a lot to get level. Sites were big and with bushes all around very private. It would be hard to find a place where it is quieter than this. Beautiful scenery too. There are only a few sites with sewer and we took one which cost us $18 instead of $14 for sites with just water and sewer. Good fire pits and clean tables too. If you like to stay in the outdoors and enjoy yourself, this is a very good stopping spot. I don't happen to enjoy camping cheek to cheek with everyone and this fit my bill perfectly.
Noise from I-25 and there is a BIG truck stop in front of the park with some rigs running motors all night long. Not a quiet place to stay frankly. This is a very run down campground. The bathroom does not smell and I assumed it was clean. You could hardly tell other than smell as the bathroom and showers are in such serious need of being redone. The manager was very nice and even came out to our rig with a bottle of grey tank treatment. She could not find it at first in the jumble that is the store, but found it after my wife returned to our rig. I get the impression that a lot of migrant workers stay here during harvest time. Probably would be an interesting time here. WiFi is the best thing here but it is perhaps because I'm the only person using it at the moment. I would have stayed at KOA, but their WiFi does not support my iphone or my ipad and I find that frustrating. (If you don't have Apple gear, I'd recommend the KOA here.)
This is indeed a BIG RIG park. You cannot see much from you site other than the rigs beside you. Also had Rams Head sticker burr plants all over with some in our site. They need to work on keeping this under control. Showers and bathrooms were beyond clean. BUT, showers had very effective water saver heads which I personally hate. Rather than a shower, you get blown with cold air. No store in this park, has meeting rooms and an entertainment room with kitchen. You can get ice cream bars, but that is about all. Closest shopping is about 5 miles away. Very quiet. But, all in all, I'd stay in the Santa Fe KOA instead of this park. I felt it was too expensive, but if you need a big rig space, this is the place.
If you mind the red dusty sand of New Mexico, don't stay here. Also, the sites had a lot of sticker burr plants they call Rams Heads. Our site was particularly infested with it. We've seen this a lot in New Mexico. There were sites with a lot less problem. Noisy train traffic, but we don't mind that. The showers where huge with copious amounts of water BUT, the there were only 2 showers in each building and you got dressed and undressed in public. No private spot for your clothing. Really liked the showers though: BIG and lots of water!!! Excellent place for a group. Looks perfect for a convention. Lots going on here too. Fun place.
This is a residents park with not very many overnight spots available. We did not like any of the overnight spots and searched the park for an empty slot farther from the road. We asked and got permission to use that slot. I found the manager helpful for my needs but would not expect much help if something went south. BTW: The sewer system has just been fixed. They had to dig up a large section in the front of the park. I would not hesitate to camp here again. It is close to the downtown area and shopping. Buried in the trees, it is quiet which we like. The bathroom looked well used and crude, but were spotlessly clean. Ditto the laundry facilities. I did have trouble receiving WiFi from our spot and you had to be very near the office for reliable WiFi. This is not as bad as reviewed earlier. Oh, lots of lava rock which is dusty. But they are laying down good rock replacement which is helping the dust situation. If someone drives fast on the road, it does kick up a lot of dust. We stayed here twice.
Apparently the flood damaged noted by one reviewer has been totally repaired. I saw no ruts anywhere. However, all the sites are somewhat out of level. I had to lift up one side about 2" to achieve level. The also use TenGo Internet, and I'm finding that they do not support either iPhone 4 or iPad connectivity. I filed a support request but have yet to have any answer. Found this to be a comfortable park though noisy as most KOAs tend to be. Love the breakfast served each morning.
It is a very nice KOA park. It has a nice store too. The men's bathroom needs some paint as there is pealing paint in there. However, the shower is very nice and roomy with tile. There is plenty of space for stuff when showering too. Parking areas are all very close to level and have been frequently raked. I did not see any trash lying about. The laundry room was clean with good equipment. Noise from I25 was substantial, but that is what you get at a KOA. This was quieter than most that I've stayed at. It is about 20 minutes from Santa Fe center. It is a good option if you wish to visit Santa Fe IMO.
Very nice state park campground. Sites are very roomy with good grass. The men shower had a button you pressed with a timed flow that was too short, but I did get clean and there were hangers for my stuff. Very peaceful and away from I-80. Our GPS routed us there via dirt roads, but it is easy to avoid them if you exit at Grinnell and then go North to hit CR F27 and then head West to the park. Good place for boating too.
Very small operation on the lake. Friendly people and we had no problems getting set up. But seemed pretty primitive tho we did eat at the small cafe that operates there. I was quiet except for one barking dog who quieted down as we went to bed. This is primarily a marina operation. We chose it because it was far from the interstate.
Read their Directions before coming. We got Soooo lost. But the directions on the site are very good. You have to make a U-Turn off of I24 if you are going West. Then, there is a driveway angling down that you take to the campground. There is an ATV rental just before you make the U turn on the left side of I24. The park is clean and neat with good showers and a nice pancake breakfast for $4. All the coffee you can drink too. The sites are not particularly level, but we had not problems getting level. Longer units will have more of a problem. Ours is 32'. Like the people here. I24 passed above the campground and if you don't like road noise, you might want to pass on this park. That is about the only negative that I found here. Very convenient to the Scenic stops near Colorado Springs. Like this place. Great place for people with smaller RVs and/or tents. Big RVs, be sure you call and check first for a good spot.
