This is obviously the most convenient campground for touring Bryce Canyon national park, and as such it's amazing for hiking, for seeing the park at sunrise and sunset, and just for all around convenience. You can walk to the most beautiful (in our opinion) parts of the park in just a few miles, and not worry about parking. The sites are pretty large and shaded, and come with a fire pit and picnic table. (I believe there are also bathrooms although we did not use them as we have an RV.) The whole campground is clean and gives great views of the night sky in this dark skies park. All in all I'd recommend it. Now for the drawbacks. First, it is a bit frustrating that so much of this campground closes in mid October and that the remaining sites are first come first serve. When we were here in the first days of November it was packed with people searching for sites, and with Utah cutting down on where people can camp on BLM land, it adds a lot of stress to a trip that could be alleviated by keeping more sites open and allowing people to reserve later in the season, since it appears they could easily fill the spaces. If you do want to camp here in a reservation-less time, I'd make sure to get here before noon. Also, although the sites themselves are large, they are not at all private. We did not see a single one where your fire would not back up to at least 3-4 other campfires. Finally, we found the rangers here unfortunately standoff-ish and they did not come across as friendly. While they never approached us and so I don't believe we were breaking any rules, they drove by our campsite every 20-30 minutes for the few hours we were there and stared at our site like we were doing something bad, did not wave back and would not respond to saying hello. Perhaps it was a bad day for them, but it gave the impression that they were just waiting for us to do something wrong, which is of course not the most relaxing vacation feeling. All in all it's still definitely worth staying here to see the beautiful park - just be aware of seasonal limitations in late fall and be prepared to arrive early to get a site - and make sure you read all the rules so you know what to do and not do!

the general store here is located right in the heart of the park and is a great place to get a quick lunch. Lots of choices and many picnic tables to choose from. Even have beer to go with your lunch.

We loved the campground and Bryce Canyon, but our time there was soured by a particular ranger/campground host (short haired, middle aged woman) who seemed to have it in for our group from the moment we arrived. Every-time (around 5 incidents in all) that this woman came past us she found something to give us a hard time about, and never said anything friendly or welcoming - which really did make our stay here unenjoyable. The most annoying example was that she checked over our campsite and tents in detail at 5pm and made remarks/accusations that demonstrated she thought we were going to set up more than 3 tents (we had 6 people), then returned again 4hrs later at 9pm directly to our campsite (not checking anyone else) when we were about to retire (does she not have a life?) and when she found no new issues, asked that we move one of our tents that she’d already checked over earlier, citing that it was a) too close to a shrub (around 3ft away) and b) that it needed to be within 20ft of the fire pit (never heard of this apparent rule - think she made it up). Although tired and about to retire for the night, we obliged and moved the tent. She then returned direct to our camp again at 6:30am (clearly to check that we’d done as she asked) and glared at us from her car without saying hello or winding down the window while we made our morning coffees.

Excellently located near the sunrise and sunset points, and beautiful in the winter with the snow, though, the high altitude contributes to A LOT of snow you'll have to dig out if you're camping with a tent. The amenities are very clean and tidy.

Awesome campground, right next to the Rim Trail and within walking distance of the Visitor Center where you can take the shuttle or the general store where you can take showers (for a fee). Flush toilet and water are available and there's plenty of sites to choose from. First-come, first-served, we had not trouble securing a spot (we got there at 10:30 am in July). Not huge campsite but lot's of trees so it didn't feel crowded. Would definitely stay there rather than at Sunset
