Overall Rating

There are 2 campgrounds directly across each other in this area. Panguitch Lake South is walk-in only.
Panguitch Lake North can be reserved via Most sites in the North campground are billed as double so you pay 34 a night plus a 9 dollar booking fee for There are a couple of reservable tent only sites for $17 a night.
We booked site 003 which is NOT worth the fee. There are no electric or water connections and the "tent pads" are just cleared off dirt areas in direct path to the public water faucet or the bathroom. You cannot use the faucet to wash dishes or connect to your RV due to local water system regulations. The site is HUGE with plenty of open land you wish you could put your tent on were it not for the low lying bushes that cover everything. The pull through driveway is level and long enough for 2 vehicles.
Panguitch lake is ok. There is no vegetation to make it singularly pretty and the campground is sequestered from it with fencing. There aren't any trails to use onsite. There are several small stores and restaurants so you won't have to go all the way downhill if you forget something.The locals love this place so it's booked pretty early.
Sites 2 and 4 have back-in drive ways, direct views of the lake and offer a semblance of privacy as they are several steps down from the roadway.
Campground bathrooms have flush toilets but were very dirty during this high use summer holiday weekend. There are no showers or hot water available. The staff was working hard to keep the campground clean but the bathrooms need servicing twice a day to keep up with guests.
Campground noise was at a low- people were pretty chill. At night you can look up and see the Milky Way. Most sites were well covered by forest. This site was very exposed. Wind might be an issue for some.
If you need to reserve a site to be near Cedar City for Shakespeare Fest or Cedar Breaks National Monument book another site. Site #3 is for spend thrift exhibitionists only.
