Beautiful, even in the rain
I can't believe it, but most of the three days we stayed here, it either rained or threatened to. Nevertheless, this place is spectacular. Like the other review mentioned, finding a level spot for a big rig isn't easy. We are only 19' plus tow vehicle. We did just fine.
This place is completely dry. Fill up pn water at one of the visitor centers and settle in. There are lots of hikes and ranger-led activities to fill your time.
Great for what it is
If you want full hookups, this is not your place. If you want atmosphere, fascinating rocks, good hikes, this IS your place. We camped next to some of the most interesting rocks I have ever seen. It is a bit of a challenge to find a place to park for our 24' unit, and a larger unit is even harder to park. But we did it. The parking for RVs is what I call parallel parking. So your slide is going to be out on the road side of the vehicle. The road goes downhill from the campground entrance so keep in mind which end of your RV is the easiest to raise because there aren't any really flat spaces here. We found that the loops were all mostly uphill and downhill and would be too hard to get level, so we parking on the 'main road'.
No water or electricity. The toilets are vault toilets and aren't very far from any campsite. We did the Skull Rock hike, which is a loop that starts in the campground. Isn't much of a rock, but the signage along the way is great.
The road is all blacktop; the sites are all rocks and gravel. I was attacked by a rock in our site, but it was worth it.
If you have a Golden Access pass, you pay half price.
