Sep 2018 - $35.00
We stayed here for a week. It's very convenient for visiting all the national parks in the area. Zion, Bryce and grand cAnyon north rim. All 10 sites are pull through, each with picnic table and enough area to put a few chairs. All appear to be level. You can look at sun set on the canyon mountains from most spaces - quite beautiful. The owner was very nice and friendly. WiFi spotty but was able to use as I needed. Be sure to pull in the RV entrance, park and walk to the office. If you go to the office entrance the turns are pretty sharp. - Joni1021

Original site had a tree that would have made deploying our canopy impossible. However, another site was offered which worked out fine. Sites seem very level. Most sites are pleasantly shaded. Staff person (owner?) was very pleasant. Atmosphere is very dog friendly, although there's no fenced dog run. WiFi is spotty; it seems fairly good in the mornings and slow or non-existent in the evenings. - Samuel J

The CG is right next to US-89 central to Zion (45 min), Bryce Canyon (1 hr) and the Grand Canyon North Rim (2hrs), but there is some hwy noise (although it is rather sparce at night). Interior roads and sites are hard packed smooth gravel and level. Many of the sites are well shaded, but a couple are a bit tight between some beautiful old big trees. Utilities are fine, but there are few other amenities in the CG, although there is a tiny Post Office right onsite. No recycling. - FreeWheeler

Small (9 site) BLM campground; great dry camping for only $5 per night! No water or dump station on site, just outhouses. No cell reception; most sites could get a satellite signal, as there aren't too many trees. Important note: due to a sharp turn in the road and small sites, a sign at the entrance reads: max. trailer size 24 feet. I brought in a 26-foot trailer without any problems, but I wouldn't recommend anything over 28 feet. This makes a great base for exploring Zion National Park, and is much quieter and cheaper than staying in Sand Dunes State Park. - Neil C.

The campground is divided into two sections. The old section is wooded (piñon and juniper) with short, pull-through sites. Showers and flush toilets are in this section, but there are no hookups here. There is a dump station, however. The new section of the campground is wide open with huge, pull-through sites and no shade. There are electric and water hookups, but no sewer. There is one pit toilet restroom here, with flush toilets available in the nearby visitor center. It's ideal for big rigs. We were camped in this section. - Harry Whiteleggs

Monday, April 29 – Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Utah This park is in the southwest section of Utah to the east of Zion and near Kanab. If you come out of route 9 heading east from Zion, you head south on 89 for about 4 miles than pick up route 43 for another 12 miles south. There are plenty of signs posted along the roads and the drive into the park is very nice. The park has juniper and pinion pines and steep red cliffs. Once you drive in and stop at the visitor center the ranger or hostess that checked us in was very nice and informative. The campground is just down the road and there are twenty two sites in one loop. No hookups, but water can be found at the dump station and bath house. The bath house is one of the best that we have seen in two months of traveling-very clean and updated. They do take reservations. If you don’t reserve you may have to check in every day to see if your site is still available. Our site was a nice pull through, level and shaded. What this park is known for is 1200 acres of pink sand dunes – beautiful. We even took the OHV tour offered in the parking lot through the sand dunes $$ with one other couple and a nice guide. It was a great time. I am glad we were there on a Monday, because on most weekends this park fills up with campers and day visitors, most with their own OHV’s and we heard the noise can be loud. Quiet hours start at 10 at night until 9 in the morning. When we left Zion, it was in the mid 90’s and I thought it would be unbearable here without hookups, but it wasn’t. It was cooler than Zion with a nice breeze blowing through all day. This was a one night stopover for us and we were so glad that we decided to camp here. - gsnakehill

The ride from Kenab to this park is one of the most beautiful I've driven. The park is a gem. The colors in the area are amazing. Sunset is the high-point of the experience. Trails over the dunes are good and there is an ATV trail network available. There is absolutely no communication available, but there is a pay phone at the Visitors Center. Staff was friendly. Restrooms/showers are new and great. The road into the area is narrow, but really worth the drive. - Red Wolf Deux

Apparently they just invested a bunch of money into improvements. All hookups new - new electric 50 amp - new water pipes - new sewer pipes - new heavy gravel. Rate went up too. Now 16 spaces. Convenient to east entrance to Zion about 12 miles away. Nearby restaurants and golf course. Noisy during day but quiet at night. Spaces are a bit close but the place across the street has closer spaces. - Travelers BandS

This park is right on the junction of Highway 89 and SR 9 leading to Zion NP east entrance. Check in is at the Shell gas station. It's just a place to park your rig with full hookups and explore the area. No restrooms, no showers. Road noise throughout the day, almost none from 8 pm to 6 am. Weekends are more busy traffic wise. The parking lot is gravel and dirt, looks pretty run down, but everything works fine. Hookups in the right place, no WiFi, no cable. We asked for the WiFi password for the motel across the street and received it for free. So we had excellent WiFi. I needed to prune one tree at our site a little to prevent branches from screeching on the roof during the night. Overall not an appealing location, but cheap and with easy access to Zion. We enjoyed our daily commuting drive into the park, saving $15 for the tunnel each day. - TheSchweitzers

Very basic site, no TV or cable; wi-fi is only at the laundry room. Utilities all worked (sewer fitting was about 12" above ground so had to rig the sewer hose to drain), voltage seemed to be a little low but never below the levels for our EMS to trip, water pressure was great (be sure to run some water to clear out any 'gunk' in the line first). Check in across the road at the gift shop. Site was gravel (as well as the road in). There is some work going on to update the laundry room/showers. Overall site was acceptable but it seems the price was higher than you'd expect for a basic FHU. - Dave Hole

Terrible camp, but close to East Entrance to Zion. Worth it?? Questionable. several camps near Mt Carmel Junction that might be a better option. Dump outlet was about 8" above ground which made if difficult to use. Good wifi at the great laundry, lounge and hot showers. Probably the only redeeming factor. A little effort by the owners could make this a really nice park. Pull through sites on the upper end were 59.00. - Bob Nelson

Worst campground we've stayed at. The actual name of the campground on the sign is Hi-Road Campgeounds. Their address came up in our GPS as 14 miles off of its actual location which is about 1 mile from the east entrance to Zion. We couldn't get cell service to even call them to get directions so used a phone at a service station in Mount Carmel. No cell service. No wifi. No tv. The pull through site had a huge hole about 2 feet in diameter in the gravel that we had to fill in with gravel to pull our rig out safely. The only way I would ever stay at this campground again is if I wanted to tent camp with no amenities. The price was outrageous for what we got. No Good Sam or other discounts. The campground revolves around its retail store on the other side of the highway which is also where you have to check in. Awful experience! - Carole S

A very large resort, with everything you can imagine you would like to do: hiking Zion is just steps away, pool, tennis, rec activities. restaurant on premises. - vikktennis
Sep 2017 - $55.00
We stayed three nights as we explored Zion. Our boys loved the pools and the hot tub felt great after a long day of hiking. The trailhead to Observation Point via the East Mesa trail is close and because it's less strenuous than the traditional trail, even our 5 year old walked this trail. - EMolsee

Only 15 RV sites; large park to get to amenities. Sites unlevel. Poor road signs to find RV park. No assistance to finding RV site. Sites not mowed. Only 2 washers that RVers & campers share. Numerous activities for children. Restaurant on premises. - yfraddosio

We stayed here for three weeks while visiting Zion NP. We stayed at the new section up the road from the Best Western. It has full hookups and 50A power. It's bare bones with no amenities but it met our needs for being close to the Park. All the campgrounds in Zion were full so this enabled us to visit when we otherwise could not. The other downside is it's right next to a busy road but for the price we could deal with that. It serves as a base camp for exploring the Park. Not much reason to be here beyond that. Plenty of room to maneuver a big rig and parking for the truck was next to the rig. The staff at the Best Western is friendly and helpful. Most of the other rigs there were seasonal workers but there were no issues. Would stay again. - RoadtripImages dot com

This is a hidden gem. There are about 10 sites across the street from Best Western, that runs the RV Park. However, the just opened up about 15 other sites about 1/4 mile down the street. They are amazing. Full hook ups, pull thru sites. Gravel all around. Clean, level and open. Huge sites. Very spacious. There are no rest rooms or showers, but the owners don't want that. There is free gold at the hotel, $5 cart fee. It's a really nice and easy course. The hotel has a really nice restaurant and gift shop. There is a pool and spa at the hotel that camper can use. Also there is a laundry facility at the hotel. Zion is about 15 miles away. Kanab is about 17 miles away and the drive is beautiful. There also is Coral Pink Sands dunes about 22 miles, which is beautiful. Some reviews were before they added the new spaces. Eventually they will have cable. Great place. - Sheila Rosson
Sep 2017 - $18.00
The campground is run by the Best Western across the street. $25 per night but if you pay for a week it's $18 a night. The sites are FHU back in on stones; grassy area behind with Virgin River down the hill behind the sites. Laundry, restaurant at BW. They offer WiFi but it was virtually unusable. Cell tower on hill but only for AT&T; no Verizon service. Golf course behind BW to walk dogs. - Kerch Family
Sep 2018 - $38.00
Right between Bryce Canyon and Zion NP. We are in space #1 (no neighbors on the door side and good shade) which I recommend if they let you specify when reserving a spot. We made our reservation 5 months ahead and the park was full when we arrived. Not a premium park, but for the price and location it was a good deal. - J Clark
Jul 2018 - $40.00
Fairly nice campground with real close sites . Centrally located between Bryce, Zion and North Rim. Spotty wifi and no ATT. Laundry and bath house is same building. Few trees for evening shade. - southernsky
Jun 2018 - $40.00
Located right off of route 89. Easy in and out. Friendly staff that knew a lot about the area. Not a large park. Some grass and some shade. Irrigated apple trees in rear portion of the park and horses adjacent to restrooms. - EastOH

As others have mentioned, these are 2 sites set quite a bit away from everything else in the park. Which makes them very quiet and secluded! The roads were easy to navigate with a larger rig, the site was level and the hook ups were easy. The only complicating issue was a handrail at the back of the pad. I don't know why it was there, but you had to make sure your rig was skirting the opposite edge of the pad if you had rear slides to deploy. The scenery was breathtaking but we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we had hoped due to the swarms of mosquitoes. - wookiemouse

As other reviewers noted, it's wilderness camping with full hook-up. The scenery is of breathtaking beauty. This being an RV park with only two sites, it's difficult to find a more private RV park than here. If you happen to have quiet neighbors on the other site, the peace and serenity is hard to beat.
The RV park is inside and part of Angel Canyon, the home of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. So many things the RV park itself lacks (like a shop, restrooms, WiFi access, cabins, cottages and more) are available in other parts of the sanctuary's wide spread facilities. However, it is about 1 mile from the park to the sanctuary's visitor center. So since this is an RV park review, the following comments only refer to the RV park itself.
The correct coordinates for the entrance of the park are Lat. 37.11387 and Long. -112.54805.
Info for big rigs: the length of site #1's concrete pad is 29.5 ft. between the front end and where the rear tires hit the stopper (27.5 ft. for site #2). There is 19 ft. space from the stopper to the fence, so even a sizeable overhang should fit in (12 ft. for site #2).
Communication: WiFi signal from the close-by cabins is too weak. We tried with an outdoor WiFi booster, but to no avail. So you need to get along with cellular service. On our travels, we use T-Mobile for voice and a Verizon Jetpack for Internet. Verizon gave us 3G service inside the coach and we roamed with our phones over AT&T with about two bars. However, for a solid phone call we needed to get out of the coach. Only after we installed our cell phone booster (with a trucker antenna), we got a faint signal from T-Mobile (too weak to be meaningfull, though), but 4-5 bars on AT&T and solid 4G/LTE data over Verizon.
The park is close to Kanab (10-15 minutes). We spent a whole week here and enjoyed it thoroughly. - Srdpty

We have stayed here the last two years while we volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We love the peaceful star studded nights and beautiful canyon views during the day. You have full hook-ups, 50 amp, water, sewer and a cement pad with a small patio and picnic table next to your space. There are some Juniper trees, bushes and cacti in-between the sites but the pads are staggered so it gives you a little more privacy. Both sites are back in but easy to maneuver. Close to the highway but no street noise and nothing but peace and quiet after the sun goes down. Pet friendly but there are burrs and stickers so fur baby feet beware. Some deer pass through the sites and turkeys are nearby. We reserve site 2 as the pad is a little longer so our 45’ fits with the jacks on cement. A 15 minute ride to the town of Kanab with grocery shopping, restaurants, hardware store and post office among other things. An hour away from Zion and a bit longer to Bryce, both worth visiting. Great Verizon reception, WiFi and TV through our satellite. These sites stay full so book early. We book a year in advance. - PERRELLAS

We were looking for a place to stay central to activities in Zion National Park. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed weekdays on May in our 25 foot MH. This CG is beautifully situated at the base of Zion Canyon surrounded by views of cliffs. It is very well maintained. The sites vary in size with a variety of orientations to allow privacy. Most have a mix of sun and shade and most are level. There are no hookups. There's a dump station and potable water near the entrance. There's no wifi. ATT and Verizon coverage is good. All sites at South CG are first come first serve. Cars begin to line up before 6am. The hosts are friendly and helpful assigning sites as they are vacated. The day we arrived, the first 35 cars got sites and the CG was full by 9am. There are alternative commercial and BLM campsites outside the south entrance to Zion. Watchman is the other CG in Zion NP and is reservation only. - dsvt

This is a fairly clean campground, though I found some trash at my site. There's traffic noise, but almost none at night. Sites are shady, non-level dirt. Each site has a picnic table. Generator hours: 8-10 AM and 6-8 PM. Roads are narrow asphalt in fair condition with a few large potholes, tight turns, some low branches, and many cracks in the pavement.
Verizon LTE works well. Terrestrial broadcast TV: CBS PBS. No VHF weather radio. - wjzcbn

Very busy, so get their early...even in October. Nice sized sites, water at the dump station. Very close to visitors center and shuttle bus to all the hikes. Great location. - John WD Smith
