Pricey is why I didn't give it 5 stars
Big sites but not a lot of shade
Based on past reviews, the price at this place seems to be constantly going up. A full hook-up site is $44, and dry camping is $23. This is in addition to the $15/week permit to even access the location (a national park pass does get you in).
While the views are nice if you get a site with one, we found it highly overpriced for what it offers. There doesn't seem to be much to do right from the location if you don't have/rent a boat or book a tour. And on top of the steep prices, if you want a shower - you pay extra for it.
If you're coming here specifically to see the area, do tours, boat, etc - it's probably worth the cost. But for us just passing through for the night and wanting a pretty view, it wasn't our cup of tea.
There is a nice camp store that offers gifts and some basics, as well as wine & beer (as it's located just feet from the UT border, that's pretty cool).
Our Verizon had a solid 3G signal, and AT&T was off network with a strong Edge signal.
Key is getting site with view. Or pull thru. Amazing lake!
What a view!
Sites in the D loop--1 through 78--look very new. Wide paved road, wide concrete pads. Each single space is about 50' wide but the pull thrus share a utility island, which puts them in close proximity to their neighbor on the utility side with nice room on the other side. All sites have an aluminum picnic table with an end for a wheel chair. Each also has a barbecue grill and a fire ring. We were in site D78, which is at the end closest to the lake and it was wonderful watching the lake and watching the sun go down.
Glen Canyon dam is only 5 miles away and we would recommend a dam tour if you are in this area.
Views, huge sites & gorgeous Lake Powell
We really liked this campsite. The sites are huge (enormous!) and very nice. Concrete pads, hook-ups and WiFi. Many of the sites have a view of Lake Powell and it really is a gorgeous area. There's ~1/2 mile walk to the beach, and it's a good central location to visit spot on the Colorado river, old Indian sites and red rock magic. Only negatives....showers are pay-only and the laundry-room has is really small and constantly full. But, the natural beauty here is stunning. We'd definitely stay here again.
