Great sunset and moonrise
This is a good boon-docking site outside of Blanding UT. Blanding has all the services one may need to when on an RV trip.
We had the place to ourselves on a Tuesday evening. Linda was great at communicating, we would stay there again.
Private and pretty
Private, well kept, great to walk down the road for ruins and hiking. West-facing might be the best choice to face the mountains and brush. Beautiful sunset and nice view of mountains overall. Would stay again. We were there alone but well spaced even if full.
The best place to camp in belding!
Excellent dry camping area right in Blanding. Down a road leading to cool Indian ruins, close to the several museums and just 5 minutes from town with full supplies. Night sky was amazing! Don't miss Navajo taco night in town on Friday nights! A taco on homemade fry bread! Belding is such a cool town. Hope to get back soon.
It was exactly what we expected. Quiet, clean, and safe. Sunsets are beautiful. You feel like your out in the middle of no where yet the town is just minutes away with all the necessities. Campground was well thought out and very easy to get in and out of. Host was awesome and helpful. Even went out of her way to send help when we had an issue with one of our vehicles. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Great nite staying here on Linda’s family ranch. Sites are basic but that is how we like it. Arrived and walked to the first ruin sign and back at sunset. Stars and Milky Way were stunningly beautiful later in the evening. After breakfast drove down road to Five Kiva Pueblo and hiked into canyon and up other side to Anasazi cliff dwelling. Quiet, alone. Linda came by late morning And shared more history of the area. Enjoyed stay and would recommend as place of solitude without big RV rigs outside TVs and blaring music. Site 1 is a bit sloped but was fine for us as enjoyed being up a bit higher. Other sites looked flat. Thank you for memorable overnight stay! Susie and Ron Anderson
Awesome spot to enjoy bears ears
This is a great spot for drydockers. This is a beautiful piece of land to camp on. We spent 4 nights here while we explored all the amazing sights in the area (Natural Bridges, Bears Ears Buttes, Valley of the Gods, Abajo Mountains, Canyonlands, etc). This campground was a great home base. There is convenient dumping and water less than a mile up the road for only 5 bucks. Propane refills also available (avoid the Sinclair and hit up Bradford Tire if you're just filling RV tanks).
We shared the whole place with just one other rig the whole time and even had a night to ourselves. It was clean, level, and absolutely beautiful. If you are even remotely interested in the ancient native people, there are ruins (piles of rocks) literally IN the campground and some just outside of it. You will find pottery, and pieces of sharpened flint everywhere. We even found a piece of pottery with markings still on it - we left it there, so see if you can find it!
Don't skip driving just to the end of Ruin Road and checking out Five Kiva Pueblo - it's really cool if you're up for a little hike.
This is a hidden gem. Hopefully it stays that way - for those of us that like the RV convenience but can't stand the cramped quarters of typical RV parks, Sunset is perfect!
Stayed two nights Oct 12 & 13, 2020. Needed a reservation last minute 4pm while driving. The Hipcamp site was able to book while in traffic jam in Moab. No cell service for much of route in between. Diections are kinda buried in description and not easy to find again solo on the move. Linda responded to my text within minutes. Clear precise directions got us there after dark. The camp has no amenities, but tjat was clearly disclosed and since self contained, no big deal. The area is quiet, convenient, and access to ruins and natural bridge withing walking distance. Stayed a second night.
We’re only campers at the out of the way site. A bit scary. Beautiful setting. Once host came by and filled us in on the history, we were amazed. Lots of aggravating flies. We were anxious to get into the mountains so left after one night stay. Town shut down due to COVID- wanted to go to Dinasour Museum.
