The Beehive State is buzzing with tourists! Utah has almost 6,000 campsites, the third-most of any state in the country. Thousands of people visit Utah campgrounds every year and see the state’s natural wonders.

But the sheer number of campgrounds can make it hard to find the best places for camping. Some places do not allow a campervan, making good choices even harder to find. You can find the best options for camping by considering a few questions.

What parks offer the best amenities and the cheapest rates? Where should you stay if you want to go hiking, fishing, and ATV riding? What are some of the newest campgrounds like?

Answer these questions, and you can see everything Utah has to offer from the comfort of your RV. Here are 14 great Utah campgrounds.

1. Aspen Grove RV Park 

Aspen Grove is located in Tremonton, and the park is a short drive away from Veterans Memorial Highway and Golden Spike National Historical Park. The park has 54 separate sites, each with full hookups.

The park has many on-site amenities, including laundry facilities, bathrooms, and kitchens. You can also enjoy free Wi-Fi. The only downside is that the park does not have a public dump station, though stations are located within a few blocks of the park.

Aspen Grove offers nightly, weekly, and monthly rates. Nightly rates start at $48; you receive a free night if you stay for a week. There are fees for additional guests and vehicles, so plan out who is coming with you to the park.

2. Red Ledge RV Park

Red Ledge is near Kanarraville, a small town near the Hurricane Cliffs. You can also visit Dixie National Forest, Navajo Lake, and Zion National Park. This makes Red Ledge a good place to stay if you want to pursue multiple outdoor activities.

The park has 22 lots, and you can bring a campervan of up to 40 feet. Amenities include restrooms, laundry facilities, and playgrounds for young children.

Daily rates begin at $30, making Red Ledge one of the most affordable Utah camping areas. Monthly rates are between $475 and $500, so consider staying long-term at Red Ledge. If you want to camp underneath the stars, you can reserve a tent site.

3. Zion Canyon Campground

If you want to spend most of your time at Zion National Park, you should stay at Zion Canyon Campground and RV Resort. It is located near Springdale, which has many restaurants and stores where you can get camping supplies. The park has 185 sites, making it one of the biggest Zion National Park campgrounds.

Zion Canyon is more expensive than other options, with daily rates starting at $79. However, you get many amenities for your money. In addition to full electric hookups, you have access to sewage, water, fire pits, and grills.

4. Kodachrome Basin Campground

Kodachrome Basin State Park has three campgrounds, but only one allows hookups for RVs, Basin Campground. The campground is one of the cheapest in the state, with daily rates starting at $21. You also have incredible views of the park’s sandpipes and white hills.

However, Basin only has 15 full hookup sites, and two sites are first-come, first-serve. Book your site through the Utah State Parks website. The campground is closed starting on December 1, and it will reopen on March 1.

5. Bear Valley RV and Camping Resort

Bear Valley is outside of Panguitch, which is near Bryce Canyon and the Hoodoo Formations. The park has 36 RV sites, each with a full hookup. You also have access to picnic tables, laundry facilities, and a full convenience store.

Rates depend on the type of vehicle you bring to Bear Valley. Truck campers and campervans cost $38 a night while full-size RVs cost $46 a night. You are not required to make a reservation, though the small size of the park means you may get booked out if you don’t reserve a spot in advance.

6. Blue Mountain RV

Blue Mountain in Blanding is just off Highway 191. It is within an hour of the Valley of the Gods, Goosenecks State Park, and Natural Bridges National Monument. You can also find several museums and areas where you can take beautiful night photographs.

Each site has full hookups, and you can access bathroom and laundry facilities. The park offers pull-through and back-in sites, though the pull-through sites are more expensive.

7. Cadillac Ranch RV Park

Cadillac Ranch in Bluff is right off Highway 191 and a short distance from the San Juan River. The Utah-Arizona border is a short drive away, and you can also access natural wonders like Kachina Petroglyph Panel. The park is one of the best Utah recreational areas for stargazing, as the town of Bluff has very few lights.

The park offers first-come, first-serve spots, so you won’t need to make reservations. All sites accommodate extra vehicles, and you can access a dump station from all sites.

8. Escalante Cabins and RV Park

Escalante Cabins and RV Park is a new Utah campsite. The Escalante Canyons are a great destination for many outdoor activities, including rappelling and ATV driving. The park has 66 RV sites, and daily rates start at $49.

The park is fairly large, with sites scattered throughout. If you want immediate access to showers and propane, you should pick a site with a low number. The higher the number for your lot is, the further away you are from the amenities.

Escalante offers a number of cabins for guests to stay in. If your RV needs repairs and you need another place to stay, you can rent a cabin for the night.

9. J and J RV Park

J and J RV Park in Kanab is near many canyons, including the Grand Canyon. If you want to spend time at the Grand Canyon, you should compare J and J to other Grand Canyon campgrounds and find one with the services you want.

If you’re interested in looking at geologic wonders and going for long walks, you should stay at J and J. Daily rates begin at $47, with pull-through sites being more expensive.

If you have a dog, you can walk it in an on-site dog park. Before you go camping, you can buy firewood, propane, and water refills at the park store.

10. Koosharem RV Park

Koosharem is another new RV park located in the town of Koosharem. It is close to the Paiute Trail, which offers hundreds of miles of trails for hiking and ATV driving. The park is very small with only 15 sites, but all sites offer full hookups with electric and sewer service.

The park has an on-site cafe and an antique store. You can get a quick meal and buy some camping supplies before visiting the Paiute Trail. The park is in a rural area, so it may be hard to find food and resources for traveling in Utah if you don’t visit the store.

11. Lizzie and Charlie’s RV Park

Lizzie and Charlie’s RV Park is directly on the Paiute Trail. The park has 92 RV sites, and most of them are in shaded areas. The daily rate is $43, but if you stay a week or longer, you can pay $37 per night.

The park has two separate laundry facilities and three bathrooms. If you need an ATV, you can rent one from a sister company run by the owners of the park. You can ride your vehicle from the trailer to your RV, though you should go slow as some of the roads are unpaved.

12. Mountain Meadows at Flaming Gorge Resort

Mountain Meadows is an RV park inside Flaming Gorge Resort. It is near Flaming Gorge Reservoir, which is one of Utah’s best locations for boating, fishing, and jet skiing.

The park has 21 full hook-up spaces, and daily prices start at $40. You are not required to reserve a spot, though the resort can be popular during the summertime.

13. Pine Forest RV Park

Pine Forest is a separate RV park run by the management team at Flaming Gorge Resort. If you’re interested in fly fishing, you should consider staying at Pine Forest, as it is located closer to the ponds.

Rates are more expensive at Pine Resort, starting at $55 a night, but more spaces are available. You can also enjoy basketball and volleyball courts, laundry facilities, and playgrounds. As with Mountain Meadows, reservations are not required, but you may want to reserve your spot to avoid being booked out.
