“Great Amenities”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

PROS: Nice, clean RV park/campground in the desert with great view overlooking Lake Powell. Only has a few trees that are quite small, so bring your own shade. The asphalt pad was so level, we didn't need to adjust our 5th wheel at all after pulling in. Sites are good size, with gravel/dirt in the remainder of each site. Bathrooms in adobe style buildings were very clean and well stocked. Trash recepticles were sparce. Very clean showers reminds me of my nearby gym. They are attached to the registration/gift shop building and cost $2.00 for 15 mins (requires quarters).

CON: Reservation system is located in Phoenix and handles other Aramark locations so even if they TRIED to seem caring, they simply don't know what is happening at the actual campground. This needs improvement, IMO. Months in advance, they cannot commit to a requested spot (site #) that you will be assigned only upon check in. So you might get a spot right next to someone or you might not. You you might get a spot with a view and you might not.

CON: The check-in desk personnel were NOT customer friendly at all. Near Kayenta (across the desert) we were notified from another boat rental place that the boat we rented for the next day had a blown engine. While they were trying to locate another boat for us (the whole reason for our trip to Lake Powell), we called Wahweap Campground to see what site we were going to check into. But they were "too busy" to help us and said to either hold or call back and that "we can check the paper on the door for our assigned site number if we arrive after they close at 7:00 pm." Really? We're in the desert using a cell phone in a "spotty" service area, trying to keep connection and determine if we are going to continue on to Lake Powell, and they expect us to hold indefinitely? They were not at all helpful by phone, and when we called back, the phone just rang and rang. When we arrived (before 7:00 pm!), they were not friendly over the desk to the folks before or after us, either. Someone needs to teach those ladies how to interact with people who, afterall, keep them employed by doing business with the campground. There were two ladies sitting down behind the registration desk and one standing (doing nothing) who obviously handled only the gift shop. I guess she can't pick up a phone?

OTHER INFO: It cost $15 to get past the National Parks gate kiosk, which is good for 7 days. Keep your receipt for in/out privileges if you plan to drive into town for gas, food or ice. Our RV campsite was $44.00 per night.

Gas prices (August). Page = $3.59 unleaded. Dangling Rope Marina (up the lake) $5.36 unleaded.

We arrived at about 5pm in the afternoon to ensure we had a pitch for our tent and were told that they did not know what areas were taken and we would have to look for ourselves.

After finding a spot and sitting down for half an hour we noticed many flies hanging around, a clear indication of a dirty campsite. This is probably due to the complete absence of bins unless you are pitched right next to registration.

We went for a shower (they are free for people staying at Wahweap which apart from the Wi-fi is the only positive I have about this place) and we were disapponted to find they were filthy and muddy. Yes I know we were not exactly staying at the Ritz but these were unreasonably smelly.

After dinner a coach load of seventy teenagers turned up and were crammed into one area of the site, this is when we should have noticed what was about to happen. At 11pm people were still turning up in the grounds and camping around us, the teenagers were screaming and destroying the facilities. When a group tried to pitch their tent pretty much on top of ours we went to the front desk and were informed the space we paid about $25 for earlier was only for our tent and not for any area around it. They kept that very, very quiet before they had our money. As long as they could get the cash for it they were willing to stuff as many people as they could into the site.

Later in the night when people started to play with fire toys and others were driving dangerously in their cars beeping their horns the security who were hanging around the toilets were completely gormless and seemed unwilling to stop people playing with fire poi around dry leaves and branches in a family campsite.

The noise was still going when I finally managed to fall asleep. Needless to say we left as soon as we possibly could in the morning. This was the worst campsite I have ever been to. DO NOT GO!

When you show up early enough at an RV park that offers so much and is so well taken care of, you expect to be able to chose one of the empty RV sites and not just to be assigned one without even taking a look at it.
We made reservations two months in advance knowing how busy this place is this time of the year and there is no way to choose a specific spot. Therefore we left very early trying to get there as soon as we could before it filled up entirely.
There was a Flat Lined lady that could not even make eye contact or explain why we couldn't get to choose one other campsite even if we were going to be there for a whole week.
I understand the stress that RV people can put on RV receptionists, but if your job is in customer service like mine and you are lucky enough to have a job, you should try your best to acknowledge customers issues and give intelligent answers. Overall luckily enough our site faced East.
That said, the campground is great , unless your RV door will face west . If that is the case in the late afternoons you will be scorched by incredible heat and no shade. There are Laundry facilities on site and they are very inexpensive, a fish cleaning station that is terrific, recycling stations, showers and the sites are really big and not too close to each other. Great water pressure and clean public restrooms.
Ice is $4.99 per a 10 pound bag, and the store is decently stocked for overpriced items you might have forgotten. Wal-Mart is only 10 miles away so stock up there. There is many amenities that are great and make this place one of the best RV park we have ever stayed at. Although the Customer Service is comparable to the one you find at a prison booking desk.
Would definitely return and hope for changes in service at check in.

Room Tip: Good luck Hopefully your RV door will not face west.

Good location near Lake Powel. Full hookups. The shuttle bus drivers (comes every hour) were very helpful. We rented a boat and dragged the kids around the lake on an innner tube type contraption. Only negitive comments was the cleanliness of the restrooms. For the amount of money paid they should be able to clean the floor a little better and remove the spider webs.

We loved it here! We paid $15 to drive into the park, and then $23.00 per night for a tent campsite. We stayed in loop 2 on the lake side. We arrived, walked across the street and down to the water to swim. It was instant gratification after a long summer drive. Our dog was able to camp with us, and come to every beach with us as long as he was on the leash. This is a very hot place for a dog, though. If the sand is too hot for your feet, then it is too hot for their paws, so bring things to help protect your dog. The campground office sells necessities like wood and food if you forgot something. The bathrooms were sparkly clean one day and gross the next, so it is hit or miss. The service in the store isn't amazing, but it was adequate and that isn't why we were visiting Lake Powell. This place gave us a family vacation we will always remember, so enjoy!

Some tips:
*Bring steel tent stakes, as the ground is incredibly hard and it was difficult to stake our tents.
*Reserve a spot away from the bathrooms on the lake side with at least one tree.
*Bring quarters for the showers.
*Buy or bring a large shade structure for your campsite and large sun-brellas for the beach.
*Plan on waking up every day at sunrise as the moment the sun hits your tent, you will be roasting.
*Take a trip to Lone Rock Beach. It is just up the road (in Utah) and is a wonderful way to experience Lake Powell. You can pay to camp there, or just spend the day there swimming and hanging out. If your car or camper can make it on the sand, you can park right next to the water. People do get stuck there in the sand, so it isn't for amateurs. This beach does not have bathrooms or food, so come prepared.

We just got back from Lake Powell, we stayed in our r.v. loop f, which we saw a small portion of the lake, we had two small dogs, beside our r.v had red gravel, we had to drive our dogs up to the lodge, where they had green grass, only 3 minutes away but was an inconvence every time they had to go outside. Picinic tables needed a awning over them for some shade, no shade, had to sit inside, had a small tree beside our r.v. but too small for any shade, like camping out in the desert, so hot, that our air condioner wouldn't cool below 80 degrees.Lake Powell is beautiful, had a car, so we could drive around, and took a boat ride, that was the best time we had of our visit to lake powell.
