“Free, beautiful, just a little bumpy”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2018

Overall Rating

Camped here in a 34’ class A with tow dolly, entrance is a little rough and rocky, go slow and pick your route but we had no problems. Room for probably 20 campers here, mostly smaller than us but there were several spaces we could have fit in. Convenient to Torrey and Capitol Reef. Dumped our tanks in the park for $5, none of the 3 cl... more

“Beautiful and Close to Capital Reef”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We visited late summer and there were quite a few people camping with us. The location is convenient, right off of the highway and close to capital reef. The sites were accessible for even our low clearance sedan. The view from our site was beautiful. The only reason for the four stars is that the winds were terrible in Sept and we cou... more

Wow! This spot was awesome. We wish we had more time here. It was quite, spread out, and only 10 minutes to the visitor center. It has very strong cell coverage with fast att internet. Our kids loved climbing on the rocks and hill side. The afternoon temperatures were in the mid 90’s but it didn’t feel too hot. We never even fired up t... more

“Great Campground Close to Capitol Reef”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great free campground located just outside the west end of Capitol agreed with quick and easy access to and from the park. Campground had two pit toilets and several sites. The ones closer to the road would be easily accessible for big rigs and trailers. We just had our car and drove further into the campground for a more pri... more

“Great place under the stars ”

Reviewed Jul 25, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground was a little hard to find at first, but I also never stayed at a free campground before so I didn’t exactly know what I was looking for. This place was huge! We had to drive careful in and around because there are nice sized rocks to navigate around but that was no big deal we were driving a full size car. Capitol reef... more

“Perfect distance from Capital Reef”

Reviewed May 31, 2018

Overall Rating

The ONLY negative is the entrance is a little rough, but nothing that would hinder us from staying here again. The entrance forks, so I suggest taking the route toward the right...not as many big rocks. It’s doable for all vehicles, however just take it slow. We saw Class A’s and a Kia Sol, so no biggie. Beautiful views and the locatio... more

“Great boondocking near Capitol Reef”

Reviewed May 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 4 nights in late May 2018, while we explored Capitol Reef National Park and the surrounding area. Very easy to access this camping area and the road in is rocky, but no problem at all. There is no water or dump on site. We filled up with water and dumped at Fruita Campground in Capitol Reef before we arrived. It ... more

“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.
