Stayed here for 2 nights in our tent. Unfortunately we booked so late we had to book 2 different sites and move our tent (not recommended!).
First night was in Loop C. Absolutely no privacy between sites, we had friendly neighbours so that was okay. There is a large field in the middle of the campsites - good for kids to run around/play ball.
Second night we stayed in the riverside site, this had power so the area was mostly RV's with a few tents. No problem with noise, but you couldn't actually see the river as there is a large mound of dirt all along. You have to climb up the mound to see the river, then you can walk along this, or go down the other side to have a swim. Didn't feel the extra money was worth it for a river site.
No showers as the NPS reservation site says. Most people seemed to just have a dip in the Virgin River. Mightly cold but was bearable in June. You can also bring a tube or hire one from Springdale and float down the river - this was great fun for us and the kids.
Location is superb, close to everything, beautiful scenery, saw deer/squirrels everywhere which kids loved.
Not my favourite US campground, mainly due to lack of showers and privacy, but was fine for a couple of nights.
