My friends and I have been to Needles Outpost many times in the past. We stay in the group campsite because there is always 15-20 of us. It's beautiful and we love having the showers after a long hike. Having new owners makes the place even better. If you were here before and had issues with the "crazy lady" give... More

This place is wonderful, red rock in the back and needles in the front and lots of stars above. Can't get better than that! It is very quiet too. The owners and side kick were great and very helpful. Had a wonderful camping experience.

This is right next to the entrance of the Park and we appreciated it after having just completed a 16 mile hike! The owners were very friendly and helpful and their shop provided basic requirements which now includes a great coffee machine The site was in a great place and provided the quietest night we had from all our campsites....

This place is back open for business and is desperately needed for such a remote place. It is the only campground in the area with flush toilets and showers. It is just a short distance to the park entrance. I'm glad it is back open and the new managers seem really nice.

Hopefully the Runway will be fixed! And be cleaned up a bit. Many wonderful memories there. Was there about five years ago and was shocked! What a beautiful place the needles district is, that will never change.

The Run way or air strip had been flooded or washed out by rains this year. We just took over management and we are working towards getting it restored again. It will take some efforts but I believe it will be worth it. We are working with a group to help get it done. We have cleaned up tons on... More

Thank goodness for Needles Outpost! $6 showers and worth every penny! Great to fill up on hiking snacks, beverages, ice, essentials, and gas. New owners are exceptionally nice and are very interested in finding out if customers want or need anything that they can stock for them! Camp spots in the back. This is just outside of Canyonlands entry.

The Needles Outpost just opened on Labor Day with new management! The new managers, Deb and Marty, are terrific! The campground is clean, and you can buy gas and food at their cute, little store. We needed extra gas to jeep Elephant Hill. Highly recommended!

We had a great experience staying at Needles Outpost over Labor Day weekend 2015. Clean tent sites, clean campground, clean restrooms with flush toilets and hot showers, clean office/store/gas station, and very friendly staff. Cost exactly the same for two nights camping as it would inside the park after factoring in the $10 park entrance fee. Sites for car/tent camping... More

Beautiful views from the campground - and sunsets. Shade from the rocks behind. Bathrooms, showers, store and fuel! Picnic table and fire pit and each spot. Improved road into the outpost. Friendly, new managers Deb and Marty!
