The word on the street is that the closure was mainly due to the erratic behavior of the (apparently now former) owners mentioned in many reviews. Meanwhile, travelers to the Needles district should note that the closest gas, restaurants, food stores, anything really is Monticello (48 miles away) and Moab (74 miles). The Needles Visitor Center (Ntl Park Svc) can... More

We have been stopping at the Needles Outpost every time we come to Canyonlands/Needles. We always love the service and the food--delicious burgers. The staff is very friendly and entertaining --wouldn't miss it for anything. Today started planning a trip for friends (and maybe myself later) and found that the Outpost was closed--I am shocked and sad--it really did complete... More

Don't expect the 4 seasons. But they keep a clean place (the cleanest bathrooms in a campground I have ever seen) in what is pretty much the US version of the Outback. Totally off the grid. And great to have an option with camp spots and showers when the limited number of spots at the national park fill up. AND... More

We've been here probably 15 times over the last decade - two or three times on each of a half dozen backpacking or camping trips. Our last trip in March was typical - Tracy was friendly and helpful. She's especially good with our young daughter and the other kids we've seen there. Usually we just stop by for trail treats... More

About the facility in a minute. If you have read earlier reviews you would have to think the reviewers were talking to different people at this place. They aren't. The lady who runs the place is as close to Jeykll/Hyde as I have personally experienced. In the course of a single visit to Canyonland my group had multiple encounters with... More

Crazy Tracey ... Avoid going to this place Let us start with the most important advice if you don't feel up to reading our whole story: just don't go to this campground. Any other choice (there are several campgrounds nearby, like Indian Creek CG (BLM), Superbowl CG and Creek Pasture CG, besides of course Squaw Flat in the park) will... More

This was my fifth stay at the Outpost and I have never had any problems with Tracy or Gary, in fact, they have been very gracious, courteous, and have been able to honor our request for a particular camp site. The facilities (restrooms/showers/camp store) are a great bonus considering the park is so removed from amenities in Moab/Monticello. Love the... More

The folks operating Needles Outpost store have always gone out of their way to insure a good experience. This is a regular stop every time we visit Canyonlands. Most visitors probably do not realize what an effort it takes to keep this desert oasis in operation....food, gas, electricity, water, sanitary facilities, showers, and so forth......and without the deep pockets enjoyed...

As you may have guessed from the other reviews here, the owner is unpredictable. I've had her swear at me one day and hug me the next. I suspect an emotional illness of some sort, so if you keep this in mind and be aware of what you are dealing with, it will help. I've never camped here, just came... More
