“Beautiful small campground”

Reviewed Sep 27, 2017

Overall Rating

We wanted to visit Capitol Reef National Park and didn't realize that Sept/Oct are their busiest months and the campground fills up before 10 am each day.

So we found this small Forest Service campground about 20 miles west of the park on US Highway 24. It is in a beautiful box canyon about a mile off Hwy 24 to the right as you are going west.

There are only six sites here, plus two group sites which can be reserved. We did learn from the ranger that you can occupy either one of the group sites if they are not reserved, but you cannot park overnight in the large parking area by the group sites unless you occupy one of the sites (hope that is not too confusing!).

Since sites 5 and 6 were occupied, and site 2 (which is a pull-through) was too tight for us, we chose site 1, which faces a beautiful rock formation. We used all 26 single leveling blocks as well as 10 double leveling blocks before we were level! It took a while to set up but we were very comfortable here and there was no road noise.

The bathrooms had flush toilets, which were very clean!
