squaw flats feels like home 2 me
this is by far my faviort campground of the canyonlands park, its not a place to stay if you are trying to get away from people but lets be real its a nationl park so traffic is going to happen, its a perfect base camp! verry intament and the campsties are nicely space out,, just a stones throw away from some really great hikeing, there are little overhangs at most of the campsites, and if you climb on top of these you can see the beauty of this park, i spent more time above my campstie than in it, fires are permitted and the bathrooms are clean and comphy, there is a park store 4 miles away with food and ice and gas, but call ahead for hours of operation, this place is mindblowing and if your wanting to grt the full canyon lands expereance that squaw flat is a must see, i will be back 4sho!! loved it,
Unique Quality: like i said the bath rooms are verry clean and offer alot more than your average campground, there is a senic drive access right from the camp, hikeing trails, get a map exsplore this amazing park, the drive in is breathtaking and stop at newspaper rock ans see one of the biggest cosentrations of rock art around , amazing minblowing adventure, wildlife is not a luxory bit a necesity for the human soul, this plae will leave a mark on you if you take it in and respect it
Primitive Is The Word!
There are 26 sites in the squaw flat campground available on a first come first served basis at $15 per site and capable of accommodating up to 10 people and 2 vehicles. These consist of a bit of space under a rock overhang but with fire grate, basic toilet facilities and water.
There are also 3 sites available for larger groups which can be booked in advance - details on the NPS link.
Unique Quality: Not having actually stayed overnight I can't vouch for the facilities but it does look definitely rough and ready but then that's what Canyonlands is all about.
Directions: Follow the signs!
A Campground in the Needles District
These sites contain bathrooms, fire grates, picnic tables, tent pads and water. Squaw Flat Campground has 26 sites available on a first-come, first-served basis. The maximum RV length is 28 feet, and in 2003 the fee was $10 per night. Late March through June and early September to mid-October is the busy seasons and Squaw Flat usually fills up every day, so arrive early.
Unique Quality: My journal entry for January 21: Tonight we are in a lovely campsite where we are nestled near some tall rocks on one side, while the other side brings us some trees and a grand view of taller cliffs farther from us. We are the only camper in the campground, and we were happy to discover that no fee is charged in this campground during the winter season. We viewed a lovely pink cloudy sunset before retiring to our camper for the evening. Tonight we will sleep 48 miles from the nearest gas station and shopping in Monticello. Except for the small minimum service business which is often not open in the winter and isn’t presently, there is nothing but a few roads, sandstone needles, fins, arches, and hills between us and civilization. This is real isolation, a place you come well prepared for.
Directions: Drive 40 miles south of Moab on highway 191. Then take highway 211 about 35 miles west to Needles. Highway 211 ends in Needles, and is the only paved road leading in and out of this district.
What an incredible place. Very private setting. We were lucky to pick the site, and what a gem! On the curve of the road we had no neighbors really. We had a magnificant view of the Dutch shoe especially. With gigantic rocks all around the site we felt almost as if we were at the opening of a cave. These are fairly large sites with potable water, fire rings, and vault toilets. An amphitheatre also exists for activities. At dusk the bats flittered around haphazardly as we followed them on our bike rides back to camp. I think this will probably be the best campsite I'll ever find until we do a backcountry hike and camp.
Unique Quality: Tranquil and quiet, very desolate. What more could you ask for for about $10 a night?
