This Outpost and campground is located on 640 acres of private property surrounded by park and public land. It has been here for over 30 years in some form or another. We are Caleb & Amber who enjoyed managing this little oasis in the middle of the desert from March to June of 2017 when we decided to purchase the business & make it our own. This is a dry, rugged campground with a bathhouse that provides coin operated showers and flush toilets. In addition there is little old rustic camp store placed in the middle of nowhere where we provide fuel, snacks, firewood, ice, showers, cold drinks & more. If you are looking for a more private site with lots of space and shade, book our Small Group at the Rocks. For a warmer stay during the cooler months book one of our Glamping Tents listed. We have the larger, and spacious tent in the grove of the Juniper Trees (which is also amazing in the warmer season) and rent a heater from us inside the general/camp store. BE SURE TO GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO CHECK IN NO LATER THAN 5PM. THANK YOU!! DON'T FORGET TO TAKE A SCREEN SHOT OF THE DIRECTIONS HERE, YOU WILL LOSE SERVICE ON YOUR WAY.

Fantastic area with plenty of things to do that were close by. It was very quiet and climbing on the rocks behinds the campsite offers some great views without having to hike a massive trail. The host was very nice and accommodating and the small shop right next to the camp sites offers most of the things you need that you may have forgotten before arriving at the site. I would definitely recommend this place and plan on visiting again soon!

Sky Dancers Den
Booked The Sky Dancers Den for 5 days, including my birthday. The whole experience will forever hold a special place in my heart, and my memories! I highly recommend this place, tent and RV sites were also available, and the outpost store had everything one might need. Also very refreshing to be able to rinse off at the bathhouse after a long day hiking in Canyonlands National Park. Amber our host was beyond welcoming and we had many, many great conversations during our visit. Will definitely be heading back soon!

Camp beside orange glowing rocks
The rock formations were so beautiful and changed throughout the day with the lighting. Amber was a great host with the sweetest dog. Loved seeing all the stars at night and having a bathroom to use in the middle of nowhere.

Everything was beyond expectations! Amber is the best host of all Hipcamp see have visited. The location is excellently located immediately outside the Canyonlands needles district gate. Amber had everything we needed for camping at the small group site which was perfect for our 4 person group with two vehicles and small trailer. She had excellent recommendations for hiking in the park. Her store had a multitude of great souvenirs and also essential camping supplies. We will return to Ambers excellent Needles Outpost campsite as soon as we are able. Thanks Amber!
