The crazy lady has gone! So those of you looking for a bit of excitement will be disappointed. I met the new owner and he was SUPER nice, I think his name is Mike. In fact, my visit to the Outpost was one of the highlights of the trip. The gas wasn't much more expensive than in a nearby town,... More

The water pump was broken. The lady owner told us it would be available in two hours when we checked in as her husband had just left to get a new pump. How could that be possible when driving to and back from Moab would take at least three hours. And of course, there was no water for shower in... More

Wow! After the hectic scene in Moab, the Needles Outpost provided a quiet evening with a Big sky view and a red rock backdrop for our campfire. We loved it! The view from our site made for a campsite we wanted to linger over coffee in the morning and just admire where we were. This was Utah camping at its... More

$3 showers totally worth it;-showers a bit worn but water was hot and with flip-flops, clean enough for me; great facility close to the NP entrance, nice campsites, camp store, reasonable priced. No electrical sites; Will have TeePees for rental as well-we watched as they were erecting one and seems like it would be fun; based at a beautiful red... More

This was our first visit to Needles District, and Needles Outpost, but our group had been there at least 3 other times over the past 15 years. The group campsite was excellent, with a rock amphitheater curving around our tent and camper location. The new concessionaire is clearly working to improve the facilities inherited from the previous concessionaire, and were... More

Tent camping at its' best! Loved the views, the clean restrooms and nice people. Had site #4, it was awesome! Had a friendly chipmunk and a black bird visit. Loved being able to have a camp fire. After the sun goes down, the stars came out….breathtaking! Loved getting away from all electronics, especially cell phones! Peaceful and beautiful setting!

Having had multiple prior stays over the past 6 years under the previous managers who I found to be very pleasant with which to deal, this past experience in April 2016 showed that the new management seems to have a lot less pride and dedication to the campground. First, I was always able to camp at the site(s) that I... More

We stayed one night on April 18, 2016. Not sure if we met the new owners, but all of the employees were encountered we very friendly and helpful. They let us pick out our own campsite. The spots have great views! The ground is a bit soft so leveling a 30 foot RV wasn't easy. The restrooms and showers were... More

So glad we chose the Needles section, being amongst the rocks and hiking along the creek beds was absolutely stunning. Even the drive out there was gorgeous and has history along the way. Staff at the visitor center were truly helpful in suggesting hikes. It was nice to see Rangers out on the trails too.
