The vibe at Heart of the Parks!

Location is great close to everything. Colt is super helpful and is always available to answer questions. Camp site had everything and was really comfortable. Only one thing that I think needs to be worked on is the campground entrance needs a sign that say heart of the parks and an arrow pointing towards the entrance. It would really help specially if you are trying to find the campsite at night. Other than that, it was a great experience.
Both Heart of the Parks and Colt are amazing! Colt went above and beyond to help us out on a very cold and windy night. Okay it probably wasn’t that cold but we are Southern California pansies :). I can’t express enough how grateful we are to Colt’s hospitality. We arrived at night so when we went outside the next morning, we were blown away by the surrounding natural beauty. Although you drive in through some houses, the camp spot itself is pretty secluded. If possible, arrive before dark because it is difficult to find. Thankfully, Colt stayed on the phone with us to guide us to the campsite. We would happily stay here again if we ever find ourselves on this route again. Thank you so much Colt!
Colt will help you out or leave you alone, depending on which you need — the perfect host!
We found our own spot and made our own sweet fire ring — the view is amazing.
He allowed us to use the toilet in the camper powered by solar panels — no one was staying in there!
The cows and the highway quickly become a very tolerable part of the landscape.
Be sure to hike to and along the cliff nearby.
Beautiful, private campsite. There isn't a ton to do in the area but it's a great location to stay for a night or two if you're hoping to make day trips or leave early for a walk-in site at Zion, Bryce, or Grand Canyon. Colt was a super helpful and communicative host and even brought us firewood when we got there. Turn off from the main road is a little hard to find in the dark so recommend arriving during daylight if possible. Also make sure to take a tour of the Best Friends Animal Society while you're in the area!
