Good For Families
Nice place, but get there early. It fills up relatively quickly, especially in the summer. It has running water and a bathroom, and nice individual campsites... very quiet when i was there.
Unique Quality: Cheap... 16 dollars for a site
Camp at Watchman Campground.
Running water picnic tables and toilets. What more could a camper ask for. It was, however, quite windy at night and the ground was a fairly sharp set of rocks. All facts considered it was well worth the 14$ per night. Watch out for the squirrels though they steal everything.
Unique Quality: Drinking water, Flush toilets, Dump stations and Grills. This is the largest campground that I saw in the park. It has 229 tent sites and 185 trailer sites. You are limited to staying in the same spot for only 14 days.
The greatest benefit is its proximity to the Visitors Center. We woke up and walked for less than 5 minutes to get to the shuttle bus and start exploring.
Directions: Right Behind the Visitor's Center
Watchman Campground a fine base camp
Watchman Campground served as a great basecamp to this park as well as our journey to Bryce Canyon and nearby Gooseberry Mesa. As all National Park grounds, its very nice and convienent. There is no showering here due to the pollution it can cause. Showering can be done next door to the park, at a RV resort for a few bucks. There are modern restrooms however. Be aware too that there are no fires in the park due to the drought in the region-no campfires!
Unique Quality: We found there were many ants running amuck. Just make sure everything is kept closed, and shake out those shoes!
Campgrounds inside the park.
Watchman’s campground is open all year, with prices varying according to what kind of site you choose: tent, electricity, or riverside. Even the more expensive riverside sites were only $20 per night in 2007. If you have a Golden Age Pass, sites are half price. In 2007 the sites were on a first come first served basis from October 29 through March 31. The remainder of the year reservations are accepted, as well as recommended, and may be made up to 5 months in advance.
The South Campground is open March 9 through late October with sites that are on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may self-register at the campground.
Both campgrounds have restrooms, drinking water, picnic tables, fire grates, RV dump stations and utility sinks. No showers are available.
Group campsites are available from April 3 through October 27 by reservation. These are designed for groups of 9 to 40 people at a per person cost. Restrooms, drinking water, picnic tables, fire grates and dump stations are available
COST: $14 - $20
Unique Quality: These campgrounds are in a beautiful setting, within the park, not far from the bicycle path.
Directions: Watchman and South campgrounds are located close to each other near the south entrance to the park.
