This place is GORGEOUS. Its surrounded by red buttes that were one of the filming locations in Westworld. Darlene was so hospitable and gave me a great restaurant recommendation for lunch.

My fiancé and I spent Memorial weekend between Utah and Arizona. The Ghost Horse Ranch felt very private yet spacious. Darlene was kind enough to meet us upon arrival and show us to our campsite. We had a dedicated fire pit and water source to make the essential items easily accessible. The property was covered with bushes for privacy, yet there were a few open spots large enough to setup a tent. Overall, it was a great experience and an accommodating site. We would stay there again!

Darlene and Steve were great, and met me at the site to show me around. The setting is gorgeous, with nice cleared campsites with water & fire pits. They all have access to a little creek with lots of shade. There's enough around that it doesn't feel totally desolate, but sites are far enough apart to provide total privacy. Convenient location close to Kanab.

We had a very nice stay and the place is basic but beautiful. There is a hose with clean fresh water and a place to make a fire. And the host even gave us some firewood. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful stargazing area, very private with a nice firepit and the water pump was a lifesaver. Perfect location for excursions to National Parks!

We really enjoyed our stay at Ghost Horse Ranch. We used it as a base camp to visit Bryce, Grand Canyon North Rim, Kodachrome Basin. Coral Sand Dunes, and a bit of Grand Staircase Escalante NM. The campground is a work in progress but that did not distract from the beauty of the surrounding area. It is just a few minutes from Kanab, making it very easy to get ice and groceries or go out for a meal. We loved the privacy.
