Wake Up to the Smell of Pine and a Spectacular Sunrise
Chris Pearson
September 29, 2014
If you love the outdoors like my wife and I do, you will definitely enjoy this campground. The campground itself is so huge that they provide a free shuttle service to get you around the campground. All of the sites here are adequately spaced and can accommodate large pull-throughs. Each of the sites come complete with a picnic table and a fire pit. There are no hookups provided here though. Our site was surrounded by huge pine trees. Not only did they offer a sense of privacy. They also gave this delicate pine scent in the morning, which is so refreshing to smell. Try to get up early and head over to the Rim to catch the sunrise. It's truly a spectacular sight.

We stayed here in a Class C Motorhome.

Great park
May 20, 2014
Stayed here for a week. Flush toilets/showers available. Showers not free. Also, laundry room is nearby with payphone. Not too much of cell signals. You will see a lot of elk walking around.

We stayed here in a Popup Trailer.

Great National Treasure

We visited this park when we were on a round-the-country trip with our kids. It is worth it to see what millions of years of erosion looks like. This is a nice rustic campground. It does not take hookups to make a nice park but scenery trumps creature comforts.

Tight spaces
October 19, 2012
This campground was huge! So huge that they provide free shuttle service just for the people to get around the entire campground. It is also extremely clean and well-maintained. There are a lot of trees growing here, especially around the RV sites, which give additional privacy. And while the sites were adequately spaced, it was quite a surprise to us just how tight the RV sites actually are. They are fine for smaller types of RVs, but we had a bit of a squeeze to get into ours. Personally, the campground was huge enough to provide us with a more spacious RV site.

We stayed here in a Class C Motorhome.
