“Beautiful setting”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Perfect location for hiking through the desert canyons to find an amazing waterfall. Camp sites are small, but surrounded by beautiful rock canyon walls and a babbling creek. Water was still turned off for winter when we were here in early April. Very popular with day hikers, so not as quiet as more remote campgrounds.

“Great spot to camp if you're going to hike Calf Creek Falls (which is awesome)”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here for a few nights in October in order to hike the Lower Calf Creek Falls hike with our dog. We prefer boondocking but weren't able to make it to Hole in the Rock Road nearby so stayed here instead, which was useful because you have to pay for day use as well anyway. The sites are small, but the two of us and our dog fit j... more

“Nice Little Spot Near Boulder, But...”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Calf Creek is a tiny little campground between the towns of Escalante and Boulder, right along Route 12. This part of the country is incredible, and the drive between these two towns can't be missed. Gorgeous scenery; the road was built by the CCC in the late 30's. The campground is signed for no rigs over 25 feet, and you should he... more

Drove here from Arches National Park. Got here late in the day so no spots but a kind couple who saw us drive through let us stay on their site for the night. Found a spot the next day. Loved this camping spot!!! You must hike to the falls. One of the highlights of our 7500 mile trip. Also must go to Kiva Koffeehouse. You can use thei... more

“Fantastic”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2015

Overall Rating

(I hesitate to praise Calf Creek, because it's popular and there are only 13 sites, so I was extremely lucky to get the last one. I don't want to reduce my chances of staying here by encouraging everyone else. But at least the folks with large rigs and long trailers will have to pass.) Calf Creek flows all year long through a narrow... more

“I'd LOVE to stay but it's too tight”

Reviewed Apr 24, 2015

Overall Rating

The sign at the top of the steep entrance road says RV’s over 25’ not recommended in the campground. What they don’t say is that units towing will likely have a challenge turning around unless you drive through the ford and the rest of the campground. There is NO parking for units towing or for units bigger than a pickup camper or a va... more
