I have been coming to Canyonlands for 30 years. Over that time I had to stay at the outpost number of times. The outpost was purchase the current owner in 98. The sites are rustic and in recent years they have added showers and a bathroom. The showers rarely supply enough hot water so be the first or wait until there are not others using the shower. Because of the dust, I recommend only few days. It get really bad after few days, it’s all over you, the car, camper, ect. It a very scenic sight, but over the years the biggest deterrent is the woman owner. She has always been little strange. She is on edge from reality. Makes fun of guests behind their back and will blow her temper for very little problem. We have avoided her for years but my last trip I noticed she has gotten worse and we will not go back there again.
The sites in the park in on paved ground and is also very nice scenery. I would recommend the site in the park for any stay more than few days. The park is well worth visiting but stay away from the outpost if possible. Not worth the encounter with the crazy owner.
