“Easy access to tons of rock climbing.”

We stayed in a campsite (#3) that was about 0.5 mile up the road from Road It Up. It was on private property and had a little wooden box that said “Private Property, Donation Requested”. Our fifth-wheel fit just perfectly in the spot with enough room for our truck to park in front. I don’t think a rig larger than ours (25 ft. long) or with more slides (we have one) would be able to stay in this site.

There is a turnaround spot n the campground that we used to make it easier to back into this site. Don’t try to use this turnaround if you’re much bigger than us.

Know that there are several climbing routes across the creek behind this site. Several climbers walked past our rig and a few vehicles parked in front of our truck to go climb over the weekend.

This campsite is right off the main road and dust gets kicked up from road traffic, especially over the weekend. There were also a lot of flies here. Don't be surprised to leave the area with them still in your rig.

This site is only a mile from the campground and a lot of the climbing trailheads, which meant we were able not have to drive our truck for almost the entire time we were there. Yay!

Maple Canyon is a world-class rock climbing destination and the campground is mostly busy on the weekends. There are 12 campsites that can be reserved in advance (for $8/night) with a fire rink and a picnic table, one groupe site for $15 (big enough to accomodate one or two big rig), 6 (letters A to F) that are available on a first come first serve basis only ($3/night) with a fire rink, and a few more sites outside of the National Forest (lower down the road) available for free (some have a little wooden donation box since they are on private property). The only site in which we could fit our 35 feet long bus and Westfalia was the first big pull out as you go up the road. It is right by the creek and there is a fire rink too (and no donation box, so free). It was very quiet and the signal was very good (unlike some other camping spots up canyon where the signal was less reliable and weaker - 3G in some areas but bad upload).

If you have a larger rig, make sure you scout out the sites first, it's not easy to turn around once up in the official campground. Sites 2, 3 and 4 are walk-to tent sites that must be accessed by carrying gear a short distance from the parking area. Vault toilets are provided but there is no water.
