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

Tracy welcomed us, said we could pay the next day. She made sure to ask my name since she had already talked to my husband on the phone so already knew his name. She said she'd write down my name so she could remember it. The showers were great. They last 5 minutes. They have a timer on them, so... More

Tracey and Gary were the perfect hosts and we enjoyed their company tremendously. they even gave us a bottle of single malt whiskey to take the pain off of our hike to Chesler Park. Gary served a monster breakfast for us the day of the hike too.

Upon arrival at the campground we were warmly welcomed by Tracy and she selected an excellent spot for our RV. The campground has spacious sites, the bathrooms were spotless, and we enjoyed chatting with Tracy and Gary after each day's hike. We will definitely stay there again when we next go to Canyonlands!

There are not a lot of camping options in the Needles District. The National Park campsite is often full and does not take reservations. The nearby BLM sites are primative, remote, and have no water or other facilities. The Outpost has water, clean toilettes, and warm showers.There is a small store in case you forgot something crucial. The landscape is... More

My friend has been doing a dirt bike ride from Moab up to this outpost for many years, and I went along for the second time this May. We know the drill on approaching slowly, so we did. That didn't help. When we entered the outpost, all the lunch stools and chairs were turned over and only Tracy was inside,... More

This place is great, clean sites spaced out nicely, nice bathrooms and fire-rings. It is located just 1-2 miles from the needles entrance to Canyonlands in gorgeous scenery. I had read the reviews about the proprietor so I knew what to expect. We were arriving after 8:00 PM and the proprietor told us to call if we would be arriving... More

Long story short, after spending the night, when I went in to pay for camping and firewood, I had a (hopefully) once in a lifetime incident. Immediately upon entering the building and stating that I needed to pay, the proprietor attempted to grab all my money from my hand (I needed change). I did not let go and she proceed... More
