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

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
