Booked our site online and took the last spot available for reserving. We initially had spot #12 which was a great midpoint between the restrooms and the water spout. The site was good sized with lots of sunny space and right next to the camp host if you need to buy wood. If tenting in this space bring padding as it is mostly gravel. During the hotter months bring a canopy for some relief from the sun. Our second day many campers left and we asked to move to a different location with more shade which was no problem. The bathroom facilities were kept better than many restaurants. There was never an issue of the women's room being without paper or unclean. Each site has a grill, firepit and picnic table. Even though there are signs about bears we didn't see or hear any animals but the birds and squirrels. Across the highway is the Freemont Indian museum which is free with your camping fees. Trail maps are available here for all the trails in the area. My family is already talking about going back.…
We camped in our class a motor home and brought our Atv with us. We were joined by my in laws who had been to this are numerous times. The campground was nice and vault bathrooms were kept clean. The area was beautiful and the the Atv trails well marked. The variety of the trails kept each days travel a grand adventure. The maps and trails marked according to difficulty were accurate and very helpful. There is a RV campground area with full hookups but we didn’t stay in that campground
Beautiful canyon with many great sites for $15. When you camp, admission to the Fremont Indian Museum is include and we spent a couple hours there. The flush toilets at the campsite were turned off for winter, but the pit toilet was fine. When we inquired about firewood at the Fremont Museum, who runs the sites, it was delivered before nightfall. They allow you to shower at the related Sam Stowe RV campsite just down the road (sites $25). You get 4 minutes of hot water in spotless showers for $1.25 in quarters and and we added a few more quarters as our treat. I was surprised we there was only one other couple in the entire campsite on Veteran's Day Friday. Although the temps dipped into the upper 20's, we had a lovely fire under a brilliant night sky and slept well in our campervan. I will definitely return here.…
Found this spot almost by accident (thanks, AllStays app), and wound up staying for four nights. Spots are well spaced out as other reviews have mentioned. Bathrooms super clean on our visit. Easy highway access, but no services close by, so bring your own food. The hike at the end of the loop is great, lots of up and down but NOTE: some erosion makes this hike a bit tricky. Keep your wits about you and step carefully. ATV riders use this campground as a stop on the Paiute Trail.
I love, love this place because our site was very private. Gorgeous scenery, hiking trails from the campground and a really great paved bike path nearby. Bill, the camp host is wonderful and an extremely hard worker. The only downside is on the weekends there are lots of ATV riders although I have to admit, they were all very courteous and rode through the campground at slow speeds.
The sites were well spaced out with enough vegetation to make them quite private and pleasant. The cliffs surrounding the campground made from an interesting view and atmosphere. We hiked an easy, forested trail from the campground in the morning. The showers at the other nearby campsite were decent. We didn't even take advantage of the park or museum and still really enjoyed the stopover.
we only spent a night, but really liked it. The campground is part of the Fremont Indian museum, also excellent. The campground host is very pro-active and does a excellent job. We did not have any atvs' going by our campsite, raising dust, we really like that aspect in a campground, We really liked the Fremont Indian museum and the more you hike around, the more petroglyphs you will find.
We discovered this campground with the help of Tripadvisor and what a treat. There are many sites to choose from and we had no problem without a reservation. There was a nice hike up the canyon, and hikes around the rocks that surround the campground. A beautiful and magical place. We visited the Fremont Indian Museum and discovered that there are hikes there as well.
This piece of heaven is a must for all campers. Our whole family loves the beauty of the surroundings! We also loved visiting the Fremont Museum (especially the kids) and going on all of the near by hikes. We were so surprised that in the middle of July on a weekend, the campground was not crowded, and we were able to enjoy a quiet peaceful night. We loved having the creek right behind us (site 25) to put us to sleep. We did hear some large rustling outside our tent... But no one saw what it was, and it left soon after it started. Great great place!
After a long day of driving through very hot country, we were so pleased to arrive at our site (15, I think) at Castle Rock campground. It was shaded by numerous trees and near a babbling creek. We put our tent really close to the water so we could listen to it all night. We were surrounded by steep, red canyon walls. The campground was very quiet and the camp host, Jim, was very friendly. We checked out the museum and visitor center in the morning and enjoyed that as well. The entrance fee is included with your campsite reservation, so just let them know you camped. We watched the video for a brief history of the area and then did the short, half mile walk around several of their petroglyphs. Very educational and fun! We can't wait to go back!
