Very nice campground. It's very well maintained by the campground hosts. it's $15/night -US $/checks accepted. Some of the sites are spaced adequately from others. We stayed 2 nights at #75. It's right next to the bathroom.There are 4 loops - A is for RVs (>20ft) with generators. There is one bathroom for each loop. The bathroom is very clean, 3 stalls with flush toilets, outdoor sink for washing dishes, sink, mirror, electric outlet. Potable water from the sink. Each site has a fire pit, 6ft picnic table. #70, 73, 74 were the best. Pets are allowed here. Highly recommend either North or Sunset campgrounds. we arrived on a Saturday night (11pm) and found a site. There was one other site available at North campground. Most wake up very early for sunrise pictures. Checkout is 11:30am. No bears to worry about here. The only concern is prairie dogs whose fleas carry bubonic plague but they're out in the meadows. We didn't see a single one during our stay. Elevation is around 8000 ft so it's cold at night and early morning.

The General store is close by - coffee, showers ($2 for 8 min -get gold coins at the store), souvenirs, frozen food, firewood, ice, etc. Bryce Canyon Lodge has a great restaurant -highly recommend it, reasonably priced, lunch buffet. Pizzeria, coffee shop with breakfast items in adjacent building (6am-11:30am; 3pm-10pm).

How to see park:
18 miles one way - loops around
Drive all the way to Rainbow point and then drive up north since all of the viewpoints are on the left-hand side. The view points south of the central canyon are right off the road. You can take the free shuttle bus if you don't want to drive. Natural Bridge (really an arch) is my fave south of park.
Highlights - Bryce point, Inspiration point (hike the unpaved 1.3 mile trail from bryce to inspiration point - one of the best views of Bryce Amphitheater); Sunset point (most popular/crowded) due to the view and access to trails to canyon below; Sunrise point (access to Queens' garden trail - my fave).
Trails- Navajo Loop (1.3 mile RT starts at Sunset point; Queens Garden (starts at Sunrise point, 0.8 mile down one way) - connects to Navajo; Rim trail (best is south of Inspiration point), Peek-a-boo trail.
Photos - wake up right before sunrise and head to inspiration point for the best photo op of Bryce Amphitheater. Park is best photographed in early morning.

hike into bottom of canyon early in morning to beat the crowds - better pics that way too.

Check out this website on hiking trails:
http://www.everytrail.com/best/hiking-bryce-canyon-national-park

Check out the visitor center as you come in - souvenirs, small museum, weather forecast featured on flat screen tv. Entrance fee is $25 per car (good for 7 days).

It's not a big park - you can see it in 2 days. Hoodoos are primarily limestone (and sandstone) - carved by water and ice. Amazing.

Our family of 6 camped in 3 tents and stayed at North Campground. Sites have ample space. Women's bathroom only had 1 sink, which seemed to be way too little for all the people there. Temperatures were comfortable in late July - 80's to about 90 in the day and 60's at night. Kids all loved hiking (ages 7-13). Showers at General Store were clean. My 3 girls and I all showered in the handicapped stall and were all done within the 8 minutes that our $2 bought us. Great deal! Would camp here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: You can go online and see how many tents each site accommodates in the North Campground. Can't do that for Sunset.

I would chose this over Sunset campground because it's on the same side of the street as the canyon and services. We were able to walk to the general store and visitor center and our campsite was barely 100 ft from the canyon and hoodoos. We arrived before noon in the summer on a monday and had our pick of quite a few sites, but the campground did fill up by dark. Only two stalls and one sink in the women's room but I never really had to wait and they were quite clean.

Room Tip: the first loops will keep you closer to the visitor center and the farther loops get you closer to the canyon and general store

The bathrooms were rather basic and older, but well maintained. Problem? Only 3 stalls and 2 sinks for an entire loop of campers. Very busy. Campsites had a fair amount of privacy. One concern? With a water shortage we were surprised there appeared to be no conservation efforts or signs reminding campers to conserve. Many people washed dishes endlessly at the sink and kept the water running the entire time.

Tried our chances by turning up w/o reservation in late June and lucked out with a spot! Bryce seems to get fewer visitors than Zion (strangely) but def worth visiting. The main/only lodge in the park was nice (we dined there twice) and did have availability at short notice (also surprising since most park lodges are booked up in the summer far in advance) but was around $230 per night and we were on a 3week road trip so wanted something more economical. Campgrounds cost $15/site I think and we would have gotten half price with our annual park pass ($80) but we somehow ended up sharing a campsite with an RV and not paying anything anyway. Bathroom electricity was not working unfortunately but assume will be fixed shortly. Particularly due to the milder summer temps in Bryce vs Zion and other parks, it makes sense to camp here. Would happily do again!

Room Tip: Just snag what you find first - try to get a spot near the rim if you can, they are towards the back from where you get in. Also a south-ish site is convenient for access to the general store.
