“Nice Views, convenient but very crowded”

Reviewed May 05, 2019

Overall Rating

Excellent views and we were greeted with a beautiful rainbow. It was a Saturday night and very crowded. The next morning we scouted and found some free land about 1 mile back towards route 12. Excellent sites, free, beautiful views, clean and quiet. Road name was 700 north. We found a site down just before cattle grate. The is tra... more

Great spot close to Capitol Reef. Lots of spots to choose from and smaller rigs can just squeeze in. I do wish someone with a shovel would dig out the big boulders at the entrance.

“Ok for one night”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2019

Overall Rating

The other reviews were correct about the entrance being interesting, and needing to pick your path, once past the entrance, still needed to be careful due to rocks, etc. We stayed here with a 38’ fifth wheel add took extreme care entering and exiting this location. Not much road noise. And for one night, it worked. No Verizon cell ... more

“Great Location!”

Reviewed Nov 15, 2018

What a great location right on the border of Capitol Reef National Park. We stayed 8 nights in early October while exploring the national park and scenic Highway 12. Access from the main highway is bumpy and rocky but manageable by any size rig. The ground does become slippery and soft during periods of wet weather but it does dry up r... more

“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

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
