“Beautiful and Relaxing”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Stayed 4th of July weekend. It is 1st come 1st serve, we got there around 7 am and there were many spots to choose, we actually got one someone was just leaving, #72( very isolated).
There were people coming in around 11am and later looking for spots and there were none left, so get there early. Some sites are not secluded and kind of close to each other, other ones are large and more private. $15 per night and the rangers are on site.The restrooms (which are flush toilets) are the cleanest I have seen. The rim is a few hundred feet from the campsite, the store and lodge are within walking distance as well. Two days in a row it clouded up and rained for an hour or so during the after noon, which we liked (being from Vegas) we took the opportunity to go in the tents and nap (awesome). The coolest thing was before it rained we saw the rangers come around and put peoples stuff in their tents that was left out, such as food and clothing so it wouldn't get wet or blown away, very cool. The store has showers which were also clean and the lodge has a restaurant and a pizza place if you desire. We came from Vegas and went through Zion, the campsites there are so close an no privacy, so we moved on to Bryce. The drive from there to Bryce was about an hour on route 9, but the road out of Zion has sharp curves and a lot of switch backs and a long narrow tunnel that we were told gets backed up later in the day, there was no one on the road when we went through around 6am. Going home we took route 20 to I15 which time wise was quicker.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

Bryce is a magical place hidden in Utah. North Campground was spacious and had pine trees. It was like a couple steps from the rim. Our site was #75 close to the restroom. It was perfect. It was walking distance to the General store and Visitor center although we chose to drive. There are shuttles that take you around Bryce Canyon which was very nice. At night the stars shimmer like no other place we have gone. If you arrive there before noon, you should be able to find a first-come-first-serve spot if its not a busy time. The ranger I spoke with prior to our trip even sent us information so we can plan our trip a bit. We also did the Navajo Loop that took us down to the canyon. The best part was going between the rims and ridges, it was very mystical as the light came through. The only thing we missed was any flowing fresh waters, it was very, very dry this late June, but still a wonder to visit.

Were lucky enough to get a site to pitch our tent after arriving at Bryce early afternoon. Lovely camping grounds with plenty of space just for tents away from the RV's and horrible generators. Restrooms were clean and tidy, staff friendly and helpful. Good value for money the only reason it did not get 5* is lack of shower facilities in the campgrounds which seems to be the norm in NP's.

Arrived early afternoon early June without a booking. The lady at the entrance to the Park told us that there were still a some campsites available. When we got to North Campground, we had a choice of quite a few sites. Had a very nice stay for 2 nights at this magnificent park. Walking distance from the campground to the rim-trail. Strong wind the second night and temperature was down to 50degr F when we woke up. Not used to this cold, coming from South Africa. Then, the campground is over 8000 ft above sea level, so one can expect this low temperature!
We walked the combination "Wall street" and "Queens Garden" trail. Magnificent!!
Campground and restrooms very kept clean. Very good value!

We stayed in this camp ground because it was very near the shuttle stop and also only a few minutes walk to the visitor centre. From this camp ground it is only a short walk to the rim where you can see the sunset or sunrise. We were travelling in an RV so stayed in the RV part of the camp ground. Generators are allowed but strict rules apply to when they are permitted to run so it is not a problem. The restrooms are spotless and look very new, tiled floor and walls and cleaned regularly. The visitor centre is excellent offering good service and souvenirs to buy. Free WiFi is also available which is a bonus when you are in a national park.

Room Tip: We were in site 39 and this was just a short stroll to the shuttle bus stop and visitor centre. The...

had two nights in bryce canyon. there is so much to enjoy in this park. bryce point, inspiration point, sunrise and sunset points, the rim trail, the peek a boo trail and wifi if you sit in the foyer at the bryce lodge. This is a fantastic and compact park. Highly recommended. Checked out both campgrounds, but felt north had the better location and tent sites.

We liked the campground very much. It is kept clean very well. We only paid 15 dollars per night, which we had to deposit in a box at the entrance of the campground, because there is no reception available.
There was enough space between the sites. We stayed in loop D, where most of the tents were, it was on top of a small hill but it was flat enough for us.
The bathrooms were cleaned but there were no showers on the campground itself. We had to go to the Bryce Canyon Lodge/General Store site, where all the showers were. They were clean.
We liked it that there was food available nearby. We especially liked the pizza restaurant. Order the big pizza when you're with more than 1 person !
