“Very pleasant, well equipped campground with hot showers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2011

After National Park campgrounds with pit toilets, it was a treat to find the Escalante Outfitters' campground right in the small town of Escalante. The camping area adjoins a small group of cabins, and share a comfortable bath house with hot water, clean towels and flush toilets. No cabins were available when we arrived, or we might have left our tent in the car. Still, we enjoyed tenting in this quiet, clean campground (no RVs, trailers, vehicles of any kind. We found a spacious pavilion for community dining, a fire pit, and convenient parking. At daybreak we enjoyed walking next door to the restaurant for a substantial breakfast and great coffee. We suggested one improvement to the owners: that they add a grill or two near the tent sites. The only option we had for grilling our hamburgers was the lone grill between the cabins and tents, very near the front porch of one cabin occupied by a couple who might have been annoyed by both our smoke and our presence.

We rented two cabins for our family during our trip to Escalante and the surrounding area. We wanted all the fun of camping but with the comfort of beds at night and a place to shower, and Escalante Outfitters worked perfectly for us. It was conveniently located. The cabins are so cute and cozy, and our kids were absolutely thrilled that they got to have their OWN cabin. We had fresh towels and soap every day. The restrooms were clean and convenient with plenty of hot water in the showers. We had a charcoal grill and a picnic table right between the two cabins we rented (#3 and #4). The parking was convenient. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but we had everything we needed. I couldn't be happier with how everything worked out. If we go back to Escalante in the future, we will definitely stay at Escalante Outfitters again.

We stayed in one of the cabins the night before a backpacking trip to coyote gulch. It met our needs perfectly. Only dissapointment was the power was out in escalante due to a fire so we couldn't try the pizza. I guess we'll have to go back.

Loved it! Rooms were dark though, so not for reading or anything else. Great food!

We stayed in cabin #1, it was stupendous. Clean, cozy, heater worked, wifi worked, was lots of fun. only issue is that the central bathrooms - though they are spotless - may not be big enough to handle the number of people who stay there. Could be a zoning or plumbing headache to expand them though. anyway, I strongly recommend the cabins. If i ever go back to escalante, this is the only place I'll be staying.

Escalante Outfitters was my home away from home as I executed two mutli-day backpacks of the incomparable Utah canyons. The cabins were spotless, and, yes, the bathrooms were in a detached building, but they were spotless too, and warm even when I had to use them in the middle of the night. The staff was very accommodating--I probably shouldn't say this, but I was, what you might say a demanding customer, because I kept changing my reservations around, but they never complained, and waived their 7-day cancellation policy. They *gave* (not sold) me Coleman's fuel for my camping stove. The food in the cafe was delicious. The store sells a well-stocked mix of basic necessities, camping equipment, guide books, and tourist curios. I will never stay anywhere else.

I happened to stay during a crazy wind filled weekend, many campers opted to stay on the Outfitters camp grounds then out on flat sand I noticed. The cabins are rustic and simple, which was perfect for a female hiker traveling solo. They have a store with guide books, supplies, beverages of the alcoholic kind etc, as well as a small restaurant. The family who owns it were incredibly personable and friendly, I received countless tips, and great conversation. They're the kind of people who feel like extended family, but better. Stay here its awesome!
