My primary advice is arrive early. Even though the official checkout time for campers is 10 am, get there earlier and look for camp sites that have indicated they'll be leaving that day at 10 am and just wait for them to leave. We arrived at 10:30 during a "slow day" and literally got the last camp site. But when...

One of the best campgrounds in the NP system. Get there early to get one of the secluded spots. Nice restroom and cleanup facilities. Bouldering right in your campsite--hiking trails close-by. Be careful with water runoff from the rock orations behind most sites during monsoon season.

Squaw Flat Campground in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park is your basic far-from-anywhere national park campground, with limited services even more limited during the winter off season. There are no hookups. Fresh water is available in warmer months, but must necessarily be turned off when temperatures go below freezing. Pit toilets are the only ones available at this...

This campground is really outstanding! you get 100% nature, a sky full of stars, gorgeous sunrises and plenty of silence. There are restrooms with water, everything else you bring on your own. I loved to stay there! it costs 15$ per vehicule.

An absolutely horrible place. No wi-if, the toilets smelled like toilets, it was very windy and the rocks were very hard. Also there were bugs. Yuck. Please don't go there or else you'll be too far away from cellphone reception.

We stayed 2 nights for 15$/night. Only 26 campsites on a first-come-first-stay base, so arrive early in the morning to grab a campsite. If you are too late than switch to plan B : Needles outpost (closed ?) or BLM Hamburger Rocks campground (for free) just outside the park. Squaw Flat campground has no hookup sites and maximum RV length...

It's quite a scenic and well thought out campground. All the spots are different, some with shade, some with rockviews, some in caverns etc... It's got it all. The main problem is you can't book it online, and the rangers don't bother looking if there are spots available : they just put the "campground full" sign on all the time....

It had been years since I was in Canyonlands. My family always stayed in the Needles district. The campground was lovely. We managed to snag campsite 16, with a outhouse nearby. Just a short walk away was the building with running water where you can brush your teeth and do dishes. There are no showers so be prepared to give...

First, the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park is an amazing place. It is simply one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring national parks there is. In particular, I find the remoteness of the Needles District adds to the feeling of wonder you experience here. Fortunately, the Squaw Flat Campground is consistent with this experience. Quite simply, it is a...

I don't regret staying at Squaw Flat campground. The views were spectacular, with fabulous sunrises and sunsets. There are great places for scrambling and exploring right outside of your tent. And if you're willing to take a 5 minute walk (or if you're lucky enough to get one of the few spots right nearby), you can take advantage of the...
