“Great boondocking”

Reviewed Jun 19, 2019

Overall Rating

Convenient to Bryce or Red Rock Canyon. Main road entering area is gravel and in good condition. The side roads leading to the sites are dirt and could be a little tricky if wet. We were able to find a place for our 35' MH with no problem. Here is the coordinates to the site we stayed at. 37.7329398, -112.2406977

“Watch out for spring rain ”

Would have been solid 5 star review but. We got to Bryce and it had been raining for a week and was raining day we pulled in. The road has a sign by cattle guard that says Tom springs road. Cross cattle guard and sites begin almost immediately. We drove maybe a quarter mile in and backed into a spot on the left. Sank 8 inches into the... more

“Easy access quiet and nicely situated to explore Grand Staircase and Bryce Canyon”

Reviewed May 17, 2019

Easy access from U12 on a somewhat well maintained gravel road. Quite a few nice sites on the main road and off in side roads. We stayed near the entrance on a fairly level pull through. Be aware if rainy weather as we noticed some muddy off roads.Quiet with little highway noise.

“Nicely placed to explore Bryce Canyon and Grand Staircase Escalante ”

Reviewed May 17, 2019

Overall Rating

Easy access off U12, quite a few sites to accommodate big rigs but be careful where you go if it has been raining as the possibility of muddy campsites is a concern. We camped at a pull through near the entrance that was quiet with little highway noise.

Stayed May 2019 —Turn off of highway 12 onto Toms Best Springs road. The road is a bit rough at the entrance but it is a gravel road. Several campsites along the road and we chose the first one on the left. The spot was a little unlevel and required some leveler blocks before we set the leveling system on our 30 ft Motorhome.

“Peaceful and quiet with pretty views ”

Reviewed May 12, 2019

Overall Rating

We drove about 1 1/2 mile down and took a spur to the left. No issues with a 26-foot trailer. Snagged a spot on top of a sight incline with nice view. Saw a pronghorn but zero people the whole time. Easy 15 minute drive to coyote gulch trailhead to ride thunder mountain. Perfect couple days.

We tried to stay here on April 8 and the road was closed. Bryce has more snow than usual this year, so hopefully the road will open as the snow melts. We headed up Johns Valley Rd. instead and that was fine for two nights.

“Beautiful forested campsite”

Reviewed Jun 07, 2018

Overall Rating

There are campsites along the first 1 1/2 miles of FR117, but none beyond that. There are also sites within the first 100 yards or so on some of the side roads, but I wouldn’t go further down the side roads without scouting first, because some of those roads get pretty rough as you get further from 117. I camped 1 mile in from Hwy 1... more

There are a ton of spots all over this easily accessible road- our rig has low clearance and terrible suspension and we were just fine. We pulled down the first major left and went down about a mile until we came to a perfect spot over looking the canyon.
