“Small can be best”

Reviewed Jun 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Wonderful spot to begin exploring Grand Staircase Escalante. A couple of pull-thru sites large enough for our 34’ motorhome with nice views of the small reservoir. Grandkids fished, swam, we explored the many miles of 4x4 roads thru the National Monument. The town of Escalante is great, good pizza and “full strength” beer.

“A hidden gem with great hiking”

Reviewed May 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Small be great state park. Only seven or eight sites with partial (water & Electric) hook-ups. but lots of space between each site, plenty of shade and dump station. Next to the campground is the Petrified Forest that is worth hiking and has thousands of large petrified tree trunks along the trail. It is about a 1-1.5 mile loop. If yo... more

“Great value ”

Reviewed Dec 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This state camp ground is not far off the main road, with a good layout of sites by the lake. Showers not working over winter and camp host came by and refunded some $ back because of that. Can see it would be lovely over summer

“Nice location, amenities year round”

Reviewed Dec 18, 2017

Overall Rating

We drove here because Bryce Canyon was too cold and no campgrounds had water hookups.

The host was very friendly.

Great trail to see the petrified wood.

“An Oasis with Shade Trees and Lawns surrounded by a high desert environment”

Reviewed Nov 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Escalante Petrified Forest State Park is a very nice park which sits on the Wide Hollow Reservoir. The camp is very neat and well maintained. The campground has lawns and large shade trees around the sites and the camp buildings. This is a real treat in contrast to the desert surrounds. As other campers have noted the spots felt a l... more

“Some sites are tight, but a great place to stay.”

Reviewed May 15, 2017

Overall Rating

The hike to the petrified forest was one of my most memorable. Being from the Midwest, I was knocked out by the scenery and the petrified tree trunks. Some sites are tight. Did not see any big class A's in here. The loop gets a little tight in a place or two. With smaller equipment, the stay will be pleasurable, as it was for us. ... more

“Nice park on reservoir ”

Reviewed May 13, 2016

Overall Rating

I couldn't get a reservation here in advance, so we stopped in when driving by and were able to get a beautiful site without hook ups. The park is located next to a reservoir and has a mile and three quarters long hiking trail starting in the park that leads through an area of petrified trees. Well worth doing. The restrooms were cl... more
