Very simple campsite but comes with everything you need! Water, bathroom, table, shower, fire pit and plenty of land to set up tent. There is some uneven parts but we found it best between the fire pit and table.

The animals will wake you but I found it a bonus part of the experience. Owls, turkey, horses, and a neighbor playing the bagpipe (lol).

This place is awesome! Darlene was quick to answer all my questions and she met me when I checked in and showed me around the place. Since this place is on the AZ side, she reminded me that AZ doesn't follow Daylight Savings time (I was doing a tour in Utah so I needed to be on Utah time). This spot had plenty of trees for privacy. As a solo female traveler I definitely felt safe here. Darlene knew I was doing a long hike and she even checked up on me in the afternoon. I like that there was a water hose with drinkable water. The Porta Potty was clean. There was a picnic table with shade and a fire pit. I will definitely be booking here on my future adventures in AZ and Utah.

Solid spot to camp out if you're going to Zion or Bryce Canyon National Park. Spot was a little noisy because of the animals on her property and the highway nearby. That being said, she was very hospitable and welcoming. The site had a porta potty, picnic table, water hose that was drinkable and a little fire pit and she even gave us firewood for the night. Cell service was good too.

Perfect midway point for us between Grand Canyon and Zion. Close to the road which is convenient but does have a little road noise. My kids loved the horses and other animals.

Darlene gave great directions, so we were able to find it easily. Good location just a few minutes from Kanab, also loved having a shower available! Took a few minutes to figure out how to work it, but that was probably just me having never used a portable shower before. Our site was right next to the toilet and shower so we were woken up around dawn as someone else used the shower, the running water was quite loud. So just a warning as you pick your spot, or maybe just pack ear plugs. There was a nice little fire pit and picnic table, everything was just as expected. Thanks, Darlene!

This campsite was lovely and Darlene was very helpful in helping us find the site when we initially got lost. It was great to have a shower and the bathroom was very clean. Nice views of surrounding desert, rocks and stars.

Riverside Trail Park campsite is a very good location to camp if you are visiting zion, bryce, grand canyon National parks. We stayed for 4 nights. Porta shower and toilet are clean. Table is available. Hosts are responsive and nice. I wish they cleaned the campsite- remove bushes to have more space. There’s no shade so its really hot if you’re staying in the camp in the afternoon. also, it will get muddy if it rains.

Our stay at Riverside Trail Park was great! Perfect location to see Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and the Grand Canyon. Nearest town is few miles away with everything you need if you forgot anything.
