"Most Highly Recommended"

The knowledge of the staff alone is worth the price of admission! The people in the gift shop were super helpful in showing us where to find interesting sites for our days' outings. We will go back here every time we are anywhere close by. The campground itself is clean, and although the sites are close together, many have a view of Bears Ears out the back window. Most highly recommended.

"Great Park"

Great Park located in SE Utah adjacent to endless things to do. The owners are in process of turning this park into a little oasis. Ours was a premium site setup like no other park we have been in. Didn't use the bathrooms or laundry but they were very clean. Wifi extenders were on either side of our site and and had great service which allowed us to get some things accomplished. Easy access, easy to move our 42' rig around in the park. Great water pressure as well. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. Looking forward to see their progress in a year or two.

"One of the Best Campsites"

One of the best campsites we had during our trip out west! Very clean and well maintained. We were greeted by the owner during our late check in and were impressed with the campsite, bathroom and shower facilities. The gift shop was also very interesting to all of us, and started our curiosity with crystals and rocks. We went from a terrible campsite in Moab, to this oasis in Blanding, Utah, and wished we could have stayed a little while longer.
