“Great views and a half mile from Capitol Reef Park”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2017

Overall Rating

This spot couldn't be any closer to Capitol Reef Park entrance, only a half mile. The camping area is right off the road, the entrance is a bit rough but should be ok for any vehicle. The camping is scattered in the area. There is plenty of room to fit any size rig in the entrance area, gets a little tighter and unlevel as you move fur... more

“Literally just outside the park! Super convenient. ”

Overall Rating

Much better than paying $20 a night at the Capitol Reef campground. Plenty of fire pits. Not all sites are level but you can some. Right of the highway.

Amazing landscape, close to the Capitol reef park s entrance. No water, restrooms, only wilderness. Good access even for a compact car. Along the road, then it s noisy.

“Very Close to Capitol Reef National Park”

Reviewed Jun 17, 2017

Overall Rating

We ended up at this location after checking out Beas Lewis. I was a little nervous after reading all the reviews but when we arrived, there was only 1 other RV there. We found a large level and pull through spot. It was close to the road to look around but we were not bothered by it at all. We arrived on a Thursday and so I thought it ... more

“Why even try to get into the campground? ”

Reviewed Sep 18, 2016

Overall Rating

We'd planned to dry camp at Beas Lewis Flat but when we got to Torrey we decided to go to the CRNP Visitor Center first. We did not see the turn off for the Flats on our way so we decided to ask. The NPS personnel did not know where it was nor did the rather officious young woman helping us have a good grasp of where the BLM land in t... more

“Cell tower upgrade”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2016

Overall Rating

We didn't actually stay here, but we did drive through and I wanted to mention that the AT&T tower in this area has been upgraded to LTE. We were able to pick up 4 bars of LTE while scouting around. Still no Verizon service though. Also, the road in is rocky, but if you stay to the right and take it slow any size rig should make it ... more

“Great if your rig has high clearance”

Reviewed Sep 11, 2015

Overall Rating

We tow an Airstream, which doesn't have the greatest ground clearance. We checked this area out after dropping the Airstream off at a RV park. There were several large rocks in the middle of the roadway that would make passage through here impossible for the Airstream. It is a high turnover area, and it fills up quickly on the busy wee... more

“Nice Views and Convenient Location”

Reviewed Apr 27, 2015

Overall Rating

Very convenient spot to stay when visiting Capital Reef National Park. It's located between mile markers 73 & 74 and is pretty close to the Highway so there will be some traffic, mostly during the day. Nights were very quiet and the views were pretty amazing. Several spots are perfectly suitable for larger rigs (of any size) and there ... more

“Busy, well-known dispersed camping close to Capitol Reef National Park”

Reviewed Dec 14, 2014

Overall Rating

Being just a few miles from the western entrance to Capitol Reef, this area gets pretty busy at night and on weekends when the park campground is full. Most people just spend a night and leave early the next day to try and get a site in the park. The entrance road is very rocky, rutted and dusty, as are the side roads that go off to v... more
