“Disaster! Noisy and buggy”
Reviewed Jun 23, 2015
If you want privacy site #8 is great because it's fairly well set in the trees. The forest around this area is gorgeous and so is the drive to get there.
That's where the positives stopped for me.
We arrived at sunset to find someone had taken over our reserved site. The camp manager was no help at all and basically told my husband and I that we had to get rid of the guy ourselves. The manager then swung by the site 30 minutes later and implied it was our fault for arriving "late". Why did I pay 8 dollars to reserve this disaster of a site?
On our second night the campground was taken over by drunken campers who argued loudly until well past 2am (the time I finally fell asleep). There's also a lot of noise from ATVs, motorcycles and traffic going further up into 2 other campgrounds in the area. This campground is very close to Provo and the area is well known as a "make out spot" so it's never going to be quiet- something we only realized after speaking to other campers about our experience. We awoke on Sunday morning to the sound of shooting higher up in the canyon. Apparently locals enjoy using the trees as target practice.
Beautiful campground but not for tent camping. Maybe RVs would have an easier time keeping noise out.
No running water or cell service at all in this canyon. Bridal Veil Falls is about 5 minutes away- the area is stunning.
