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

I read all the reviews about how tyrannical Tracey could be but when I walked in the door she greeted me warmly and over the next four days we bonded around the small TV in the restaurant. Tracey was a high school tennis player and as soon as I saw the TV turned to the French Open we had a... More

The bathroom is spotless and cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in. The floor will get a bit dirty if it has been raining and people track in mud. As far as the negative reviews go... keep in mind this is a private campground on private land. Tracy and Gary (well, mostly Tracy) do not appreciate visitors entering the campground... More

We camped in April 2013 in Canyonlands Needles Outpost. We had a great time. The views were fantastic from out campsite. The sites were very private and there were showers. The location gave us quick access to the Needles part of Canyonlands.
