Great campsite. Clean, quiet and a great view. Well laid out. We saw a family of deer and loved our time there.

The location was nice with good access to Bears Ears National Monument. Close access to Blanding was nice, too. We were the only campers, which was good because the spaces were close together. Kind of noisy with vehicles, animals and nearby airport. Adequate place to stop if you intend to be out and about but real boondocks would be more pleasant.

It was nice campground, we were in a tent and the sites are much better for campers. We were okay because we had cots otherwise it would have been too rocky.

This place is wonderful and in an amazing location. You have a beautiful view without leaving the campsite and the landscaping job is the best I’ve seen at a campground. Five Kiva Pueblo is right there on the same road and not to be missed. There is only a portapotty and garbage cans but priced appropriately for that. Great place! Highly suggest.

Nice hilltop location. Confusing directions. Bummer: no fires. Don't know why except the hosts haven't provided firepits.
