Beaver Canyon RV Park & Campground, Beaver, UT

Need to get somewhere? Anywhere? Just follow the sign(s)

This has got to me the most interesting place we’ve stayed in so far, character-wise at least. When we checked in, the office, which is sort of a combination garage, workplace and possibly store or pawn shop (? I couldn’t tell if a bunch of the stuff displayed — or strewn around — was for sales or just the owners’)… anyway, the office was empty.  I went through a bunch of open doors and didn’t see anyone, until finally a plump older woman walked in and said, “Has anyone helped you? I’ll go find Dan for you, honey.” She was one of …read more »

South Campground, Zion National Park, UT

View facing Hwy 9

Really, we should have enjoyed this campground much more than we actually did. But we arrived in a heat wave (100°+ temps every day), and both of us malfunction in heat.  This was the first time we’ve dry camped in a while, and ironically, the first time we really, really could have have used a plug-in site to run the A/C.  But, provided that you go in weather you can manage, this is a good place to stay.  It’s right next door to Watchman Campground, which I do believe has hookup sites (don’t quote me on it), but that place …read more »

That sort of thing is usually a sign to me to keep on driving, but I knew what else this place had to offer. Check-in was easy.

Riverside Oasis Campground, Moab, UT

Tall rocks, and hidden below that, loud construction workers

Something was going on at this park the entire time we were there that was not at all the campground’s fault, so I’m trying to not let it taint my perception of the campground itself.  There was some serious road construction — reenforcement and resurfacing — happening on the highway this campground borders the entire time we were there. Not only was it loud, but it was amplified by the huge, flat, vertical concave rock wall on the other side of the highway.  And these darn construction workers didn’t stop working until somewhere between 10 and 11 o’clock every night. …read more »
