Best Campsite in Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, North and Sunset, located in close proximity to the visitor center, Bryce Canyon Lodge and the geologic wonder that is the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater. Both have restrooms with flush toilets, and drinking water. During the summer months coin-operated laundry and shower facilities are available at the general store nearby. There are no hook ups in the campgrounds, but a fee-for-use dump station is available for RV users at the south end of North Campground.

Bryce Canyon National Park is a relatively small park with one road that goes through it, but the area provides some of the most scenic views in Utah and contains the unique rock formations known as hoodoos. Two campgrounds are available for tourists near the visitor center, and backcountry camping is allowed with a permit.         Bryce canyon
