We camp here in a 25’ travel trailer. The staff was very friendly. We had to extend our stay and they were very accommodating. The site was level, with grass between sites. WIFI was very good and reliable. Location was good for visiting Zion and Bryce Canyon. Showers were clean. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I don't understand why this park has gotten such high ratings. If we hadn't already paid for our reservation I would have turned around and left when I saw piles of trash and rusted out cars on the properties fronting the campground. The sites are close and the hookups for our neighbor were just outside our front door. There wasn't much gravel left on the roads. That being said, it is a no frills campground in a good location for visiting both Zion and Bryce National Parks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I gave this park a 9 only because it wasn't paved. Other than that, this little park is nice and quiet. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Clean rest rooms and showers and great scenery. Easy to get through sites and convenient to Zion. There is a little grocery store in the next little town south and a larger store in Kanab, 30 minutes away. We stayed here ten days in April in a 36' fifth wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed staying at this park very much. It was quiet and relaxing and the owners and park hosts were extremely friendly. If you want to visit Bryce and Zion National Parks, it is a good location. I was amazed to see grass between the sites and around the park. Most parks we have stayed at in the western states are all gravel. If we are ever in the area again, we will surely stop by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed two nights, and while sites are close, there are small green lawns both places. Very clean showers & baths. Friendly, welcoming hosts & owners. Alpacas & burros in a field next to park that are fun to watch. Not a resort or particularly scenic place but great for parking & exploring the area. Stayed in a large 5th wheel and no problems with space. Because of friendliness and cleanliness we recommend it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I found Bauer's on a review site, not sure which one, there were only 3 reviews on the site I found. All good. Booked it and stayed 2 nights. It's a clean cozy place, clean washrooms and restrooms. Nicely treed with grass lawns at RV sites. The hosts were a couple that worked 3 days a week, not the owners. They were great. Whenever they saw us, they wanted to know if there was anything they could do for us. They helped us plan our travels and made recommendations. We toured Bryce Canyon and Zion. They were bang on with their recommendations. From other campers, I hear that the owners are just as friendly and helpful. We are from Canada and have stayed at KOA's all through the USA. They were all pretty good. There was no KOA in the area so we chose to go to Bauer's. I understand that they are a member of Good Sams club. This was the best to date and the rates were very good. Glad we found this gem. Too bad we do not have more time to spend here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an OK park. Close, dusty sites. Dumpster was full for days and the smell was very bad. Stayed here to go to Zion and Bryce, but next time would stay in parks closer as it was a longer drive than realized. Nothing in the immediate area, including groceries and gas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Basic park, clean, friendly staff, easy and out dirt sites with several feet of grass between them. Good full hookups and Wi-Fi. We stayed here end of season and only one night was the park full. Very convenient to Bryce and Zion. There is no cell service, nearest gas is about 4 miles, and about 20 miles to get cell service or groceries. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bauers Canyon is a nice quiet little park. Everything was good except cleanliness of the toilet and shower areas. We stayed a week. Although not as convenient to Zion and Bryce as others, the travel wasn't bad. We would stay here again if the bathhouse gets the cleaning attention they promise on their sign. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you like small and quiet parks, then this is a good location. Get food and gas before arriving. Glendale has neither. Doing it over again, would opt for parks closer to attractions. It is somewhat in the middle of things, but they are 1-2 hours away, going in different directions. The park is very basic. Utilities are fine and is has a very rustic feel about it. Overall, not a bad place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bauer's Canyon Ranch RV Park is a small, intimate park that offers exceptional value. The entire park is quite clean, easy to park RV spaces and actual live grass islands at each site. The staff was very friendly, the ranch, apple orchards and mountain views were a pleasure to see and feeding their horses was an added bonus. We would certainly go back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our base camp for 5 nights as we explored the Zion and Bryce Canyon areas. This is a great location in a beautiful area. They are fully set up with laundry facilities and a wonderful staff. Everyone works hard to keep the grounds and facilities clean and in good repair. These folks are very pet friendly. The sites are dirt sites with Grass strips so very enjoyable. The wifi works great. We would definitely come back here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cute campground, very friendly staff, but bare amenities, and a very tight spot. (No room really to sit outside). Centrally located near Cedar City, Kanab, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Zion National Park. Good for a couple of days. Glendale does not have much, but Kanab has grocery store, 30 minutes away, or Orderville has mini-market, 5 minutes away. Would stay again. Comfortable for 40 footer RV's and below, tents, but "snug" for 45 footers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is centrally located between Zion and Bryce. The owners and host are great. They go to lengths to bring fellow campers together. We stayed 11 days and had 3 community campfires. Wi-Fi was great, but no cell service like a lot of southern Utah. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Fairly quiet for being on the highway. Very nice place to stop when in this area. Park can be a bit dusty when the wind kicks up and muddy when it rains. If staying for awhile, stock up on provisions as there is very limited shopping close by. Good Wi-Fi. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in a short pull through which was uneven from side to side and from front to rear. It was also quite cramped for our 36 foot Cameo when we exited. There were two washers and two dryers, and one of the washers had been out of service for some time. Overall the park was adequate and very convenient to Zion, Bryce and Pipe Springs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is probably the best park in the area and priced right for what they offer. They are busy, so book early. Besides Bryce and Zion, there are lots of attractions and we managed to stay busy for a week. The WiFi is excellent. The bathrooms are spacious, but they could be much cleaner. Some weed pulling and gravel raking would improve the appearance. Most sites are pull through. The units seemed to be on level ground, but at some sites the toad may slat down. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I echo all the positive things said in the other reviews about this park. Not much in the way of amenities such as pool, etc. but the sites are good, access is good, people are friendly, and the setting in a beautiful valley is lovely. Too bad it's not larger; it was full the whole time we were here and we would have stayed longer but had to leave at the end of our three-day reservation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best park in the area, especially visiting Zion from the east. Quiet, small town setting, good laundry, friendly owners, easy access, donkeys and horses are your neighbor. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Tremendously helpful and friendly owners at the Park. Knowledgeable about the area and offer wonderful recommendations of things to see nearby that one might not know about otherwise. Wi-Fi works, satellite comes in, good location to see the nearby parks and monuments, nice and clean, well kept and manicured grounds, level sites and definitely a good price with various discounts available depending on length of stay. Would not only recommend this place, but would stay here again if back in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly folks. Clean, very well kept grounds. Level pads. Would have given a 10 but AT&T has no service here. But park has great WiFi. I'm staying 2 or 3 more nights because it's so nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 10 days during June 2010. This is a small, lovely park with gravel pads to park on and grass yards with picnic tables and trees. The voltage was consistently good, the water pressure good. The park owners were really friendly and knowledgeable about the area and sites to see. We enjoyed our stay here and would come back if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great little park with owner/operator very friendly people. Very quiet park with nice gravel sites with grass between. Convenient to Bryce Canyon (40 minutes) and Zion National Park (20 minutes) and about 2 hours north of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Nice creek adjacent to the park. Didn't catch any fish though. We would definitely go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to stay to visit the parks. It is very close to Zion, and about an hour to Bryce. We found the sites to be wide enough for our 3 slide-outs and our site was as level as other parks. Just know that the free WiFi at this park is about your only contact with the outside world. Our cell phones (Verizon and T-Mobile) did not work in this area. The folks who run this park are really GREAT! I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although the people running this campground are REALLY nice and the location between Bryce and Zion is really perfect, this campground isn't great. The sties are REALLY TIGHT, not level and they pack them in. It's right in the middle of this little, quaint town and you can walk 100 yards to the post office. We would stay here again for the convenience to the Nat'l Parks, but I wouldn't spend much time at the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small campground which was very convenient for Zion National Park. Sites were gravel and the grassy areas between sites was a bit muddy. Also, if you walk over to the fence on the north side of the campground to see the alpacas and two very sociable mule, watch out for the mud. Once on your shoes or sneakers it is difficult to get out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Probably the nicest park in the area. Small, so call for reservations. Nice apple orchard, and the apples were delicious. The managers were a 10. The Wi-Fi was intermittent on our computers, but we would definitely stay here again. We stayed here a week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, small Mom/Pop type facility where it appears that an effort has been made to make the campground a pleasing stay for each guest. CG directory said 30 sites, but I counted about 22. Utilities were excellent. Wi-Fi signal was strong, and satellite signal easily received. No cable tV and no cell reception. Bathrooms and shower facilities aren’t fancy, but they are spacious, extremely well kept, and very clean. Laundry consisted of a couple of machines each: which is enough for this campground. Sites are gravel, level, and long enough for any size rig. There is a grass strip between each site with a picnic table, but that space is only enough to put out the slide and awning without infringing on your neighbor. There isn’t any playground equipment, but there is a nice separate area with a picnic table, water fountain, and a few shade trees where the kids can play; or they can climb apple trees for amusement. This is a convenient location to tour Zion NP. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wifi is great, location is great, people are nice and campground is old. There are only two washers & dryers in laundry room. Light bulb has been burn out in restroom for three days now. Sites are uneven and dirt, the gravel is gone,so I would not want to be here with a lot of rain. Closest store is 5 miles away. Overall OK but not for a long term stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Location, location, location. Great spot to tour Zion and Bryce Canyons as well as North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Pipe Spring monument, Cedar Breaks and other area sights. The WiFi works great although AT&T cell phone service does not work unless you go 2-3 miles down the road. The owners are great and are full of information about the local roads and places to go. The sites are close together, but plenty long for big rigs and a toad. The owners keep the place in very good condition. As others have said, the closest real grocery store is in Kanab, 30 miles south, so plan ahead. Diesel and gas are available 5 miles south in Orderville. We stayed here a week and you pay for 6 nights and get the 7th free. We would stay here again because of the location and the friendly and informative owners. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate includes Good Sam discount. Park is mostly gravel with a litte grass between sites. Very small trees on lots. Site a large and will accommodate big rigs. Free Wi-Fi that's works great. Our Sprint cell phone worked fine here. In fact it worked about 90% of the time in Zion and Bryce Nat'l Parks. Be aware there's no supermarket within 30 miles of this place. There's a small grocery store about 11 miles away. No fuel station in town either. Owners were great. Friendly and very helpful with local sight information. Ask them about the scenic drive from Alton. It turns into good dirt road. We saw many deer and a huge herd of elk. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a small park but it is very quiet and clean. Definitely no cell service, so we used skype. Great Wi-Fi. Laundry facilites were clean, there are only 2 washers (1.50) and dryers, but this is not a problem. Great home base for exploring the area. The owners are so nice and very helpful. The rate is based on weekly rate with the good Sam discount. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As clean and quiet and friendly as one could wish for. We stayed here a month (the best month of the year for this part of the country) and it was a great basecamp for exploring, but it is remote. No cell phone service but good wi-fi. Great place for a country walk in the evening. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little campground, between Bryce and Zion, people are great, it's clean and quiet, wi-fi is good, there is nothing to do beyond basic camping (which was great for us, if you have kids, it should be avoided). There is no cell service in Glendale, period. Owners of land here are looking for BIG bucks to build a tower and they are apparently not going to get it!! We were here for a week! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small campground 30 miles north of Zion. The wifi strength is good as is the power. Located in a very small town but worth an overnight or couple of nights if you are visiting Zion. There are parks closer but we couldn't get reservations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park affords reasonable proximity to both Zion and Bryce, which is good. The staff was helpful and nice. The sites are very close together, so much so that we couldn't put out both our slide and our awning. There is a fenced pasture abutting the park where horses and donkeys feed. It was fun to watch them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It would be easy to rate this low. There are no real amenities, just restrooms and laundry. The town has no services. It's 30 miles to a decent newspaper and 60 miles to a Wal-Mart... the Wal-Mart drive is beautiful. But, the park is conveniently located between Bryce and Zion, and it is amidst many scenic drives. The owners are extremely cordial. Satellite TV works fine. Knowing the limitations, we would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park in a very small town. Not many amenities except the wifi worked excellent. Was pretty busy for the month of May. Good food nearby at Golden Hills Cafe at Mt Carmel Junction. Please take the time to visit www.bestfriends.org its a animal sanctuary for abandoned and abused animals. Its a must see! NO VERIZON SERVICE HERE! Cell service in nearby Kanab. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice smaller park conveniently located between Zion, Bryce and Cedar Breaks. Sites easily accommodate larger rigs (couple 40' snowbirds were there when we were). Pads are crushed gravel separated by grass. Power held up well, minimal voltage drop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from US-89. Interior gravel roads and sites. Great WiFi and satellite TV worked fine. Park is located within an easy driving distance to either Bryce Canyon or Zion. The owners were very friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great little RV park. Friendly staff and nice surroundings. Great place if you bring a pet. Lots of grass. Just clean up after your pet and there is no problem. We will definitely stay here again. Did not use the showers because it was too cold in the morning. But they looked OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good basic campground. The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. It is nothing fancy, but served our needs very well as a place to serve as a base while we toured the area. We felt it was a much better value than the campgrounds on the west side of Zion--the east side is less commercial and generally less expensive. With the weekly and Good Sam discounts our daily rate averaged $19 including taxes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park approx 1 hour from either Zion or Bryce Canyon National Parks. Young shade trees, clean facilities, large showers, 2 washer/dryer laundry on site. Some minor noise from state highway, but not bad. Nice tent area, grassy area available for picnicking/dog play (on leash due to proximity to road). Friendly owners. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a small park about 25 miles north of Kanab, UT. 14 pull-thrus/6 backins. It is an excellent base to go to Zion/Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef Parks. Very friendly owners and is well kept. Lots of grass between sites. No road noise. Plenty of room to walk dogs. Not having big trees wasn't a problem as nights were very cool and breezes were nice. I think the elevation is 5000' or so. Being in a "Canyon" leaves not much to view except for nearby hills--not a problem. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy in/out, neat, clean and well maintained. Reasonably close to Zion National Park and
45 minutes to Bryce Canyon. Owners Mr. and Mrs. Doug Bauer are courteous, friendly and helpful. Very nice place. Any size MH will fit in easily. Certainly
would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 5 / 10 ]
This is a very small park and O.K. for a stop over or couple nights. This park is in the middle of no place. It is down on the side of a hill. No noise here. Staff was very nice and live close by. This is a true ranch of about a 1000 acres. Gas and food are about five miles South on US 98. The drive up US 98 is very nice. We camped here in a camper.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Campground is not as it is portrayed in the ads. It is in a field in town where your great view is of houses and buildings unless you look up higher then you can see the mountains. It is a clean and quiet park. We camped here in a camper.
The owner was very friendly when we checked in, almost divulging to much information than I care to know, but I took that as a very friendly welcome. Bathrooms seemed a bit dated, but they were spotless. The pool was covered; however, when I inquired, they opened it that instance. She said that she was keeping it covered because of the rain and lightning that was occurring regularly. The pie at their patio dining area was fantastic. My children adored the horses, they even brought one out so that they could pet it. The dog run was nothing special, but with the open space around the campground our dogs had miles to run to their hearts content. Overall a great place, we will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate based on 15% discount they currently offer. The reason I found this campground was, that I was looking for the convenience to drive to Bryce, Zion, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We booked for three days, four nights. The owner complained to me that ever since she dropped KOA, KOA and the neighbors that live in town are making her look bad and they discourage people from coming to her campground. Well, I have to say that the owners are causing their own misery. The campground is not maintained, the sites are uneven, the store is NOT stocked, despite what the Website and the brochure states, the fire pits are dirty, never been clean: cigarette butts, plastic and other garbage in it. I wouldn’t light a fire there. There is this ‘so called café, but seriously: I would not dine there. There are no customers/campers here. How fresh can the stuff be? The swimming pool has a cover on it. You can’t go in. The dog run is a joke (4’ wide) and the hotspot in the office and laundry room is a joke as well. And did I mention that there is no TV? My Verizon did not work in this area. There is horse manure on the campsites: not good. I do have to mention that the campground, if taken care of it properly, has a lot of potentials. It has a gorgeous view and would, with the right care and maintenance be a great spot to spend a few days or more. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice quiet park, with a beautiful location. They have a small grocery store that seems a little expensive but that is understandable because there isn't really anything else around. Even the stores at the small town up ahead and junction leading to zions park seemed pricy. The managers are very friendly. I was able to log into the only network I found and get internet but I think it was their personal network or it could have been a customer’s network. I didn't spend much time in this park it was a little too cold for me. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park in a pretty setting. Good central location for access to Bryce and Zion parks. Sites are fairly close to each other - our slideout was within 3' of the neighbor's picnic table, but this is not uncommon for the independent parks we have stayed in. As of April, this location is no longer a KOA. Owners allowed us to wash our fifth wheel on site. Plan your groceries and fuel, as there are no large towns nearby. We found cheaper diesel and somewhat expensive groceries at the entrance to Bryce Canyon on our way in and out each day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place was very quiet. We came in pretty late and they had left the key in the cabin for us. They've been doing some updating adding little cement pads in front of the cabins that have a picnic table and a brand new metal fire pit (they kind that people buy for their back patios). In the morning we got quite a beautiful surprise, back behind the campground is some beautiful red rock. They had recently had some spring flooding so some of the sites were messed up but they were working on it. This is a campground that we would stay in again! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
The view from our front window was beautiful and that's where the positive compliments would end. We were in an unlevel spot, open sewers on our spot and the one next to us so the flies were miserable, un-mowed grass, the picnic table was right over the sewer so never were able to sit outside and the spots were so close to one another that who would want to when one occupied the site next to ours. Office staff friendly enough, overpriced small "grocery" store in park office. But $35 a night for this park was entirely too much for a 20-year old park that looked like one and is in desperate need of upgrades, leveling, sewer repair to name a few. A shame because the location is great, but would not recommend this to others, nor would we stay here again. For $35/night, lots of improvements need to be made in this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would not stay here again if there was an ark in the front yard and it was raining. WiFi is advertised but does not work. Office knows this from a year of it being reported. Said there is nothing that can be done. Sites are small. A lot are not level. Smelled like old dead horse since there are stalls in the campground. High priced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park calls itself Bryce KOA. The wi-fi did not reach the campsites. We had to take our laptop to the laundry room to use the internet. The laundry room was clean. The park allows fire pits and they are too close to the neighbors space. We got a lot of smoke in our trailer from the neighbor. The setting for the park is really nice. Horses right next to the park are friendly and looking for you in the morning for a head rub. There is a small stream with trout. Lots of grass and shade. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The full hookup sites leave quite a bit to be desired. They are relatively close together and are located on a terrace on a hillside. Several are short pull ins only suitable for smaller motorhomes and pickup campers. Our bottom step was over 18" off the ground. The Wi-Fi only worked well near the office/shower building even though there was an outside antennae. The Direct TV 101 satellite is behind the canyon wall requiring the dish to be at least 4.5' off the ground. I doubt the lower loops could get it except with a roof mounted dish. Our Verizon internet connection only worked between 6PM and 8AM and the cellphone only worked sporadically. The lower loop sites which were water and electric only appeared to be the nicer sites. More space, more shade and flatter. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We liked this campground a lot. It was close to the road but not so much that the noise kept us up. Loved the horses in the pasture that came right up to the fence. The little boy next door was a bit annoying but that was not the camp's fault. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location between Bryce Canyon and Zion. Office run by teens who seemed more interested in each other than customers. Had to change sites 3 times to have water, sewer, and electric that all functioned. Would not get in the pool. We have a 40 foot motorhome and could barely make the turn. Do not see how this could be accomplished in a longer rig. Would possibly stay here again but would be very specific about the type and location of site that I wanted. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one night of five because the park did not have enough power to run my blow dryer. We were using a Sureguard surge protector and it kept cycling off because of low voltage. When we checked the voltage, it registered 100 volts. They had four rows in this one area for RV's but put everyone in one row. When we requested to be moved to another site with more volts, we were told we could move up the same row but not to a different row. Same problem with lack of voltage. They also had teenagers running the office and they needed more training and people skills. The pool had water problems as it left a white residue on the body and caused the skin to itch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we arrived, we were told to 'drive' and pick our spot (by a young lady.) It wasn't until we were getting ready to leave, three days later, that we discovered we raked through some trees. Doubt if we could have missed them, but should have been warned that park was not big rig friendly; also, management should maintain roadways by trimming low limbs. The swimming pool was locked up so we inquired and were told it wasn't opened due to poor repair job. However, as we drove out of the park there were several people swimming in it. The site itself was fairly level and views were beautiful, tucked in a canyon. The horses looked well fed and we enjoyed watching and hearing them. After staying in many RV parks just off interstates, this one was a bit more peaceful, although there is a highway that runs nearby. We would stay here again, but only after walking to and inspecting the sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very tight spaces and we couldn't get a sewer hook up. Mostly tent campers while we were there. They have WiFi but you must be very close to the office to get a signal. I probably wouldn't go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absentee management; Run by young adults who do not know what they are doing;
Washers/Dryers do not deliver time purchased; pathetic looking horses under filthy conditions corralled; sites large enough for big rigs far, far from level. When I asked to move to a level site, the teenager in charge told me to find one and let them know. When I told them where I'd moved to, the mgmt happen to be there and were rude and unhappy about it. They accused me of doing it on my own. It was the worst campground we stayed at on our 6 week trip. Wal Mart would have been better! We camped here in a Motorhome.
