Bryce Canyon/Sunset Campground

If you're heading to Utah and in need of quiet, secure, and no-frills motorhome camping, consider heading to Bryce Canyon Sunset Campground. This pet and family-friend RV campground is open year-round and has picnic tables and restrooms near the trails which are across the highway; the trails will take you to both Sunset Point and Inspiration Point. Sites are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and are primitive (no hookups). A dumpsite is available during the summer, and potable water outlets are located within each of the loops. Some of the sites are ADA accessible, and there are a shuttle bus and public buses that you can use to travel from the campground to Bryce and other area attractions.South of the campground, you will find some magnificent views at Swamp Canyon Butte and Mud Canyon Butte, which can be seen from the highway, and at Tropic Reservoir. You can access the reservoir by vehicle, and there are roads that encircle the lake, permitting multiple and diverse views of the water body. Tour the lake in your RV rental, and you can see it at your leisure, occasionally stopping for photo ops or even just a scenic coffee break.

The Great Outdoors

RV rentals in Garfield County are the perfect choice for a relaxing vacation in the state of Utah. Your first destination as you move beyond the RV park should be Kodachrome Basin State Park, an ideal destination for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The park is comprised of more than five dozen sedimentary pipes, which are monolithic stone spires that are believed to be more than 180 million years old and are colored by multi-hued layers of sandstone. The park was named by a National Geographic expedition, and there are adventure tour companies in Bryce that can offer you guided horseback tours of the area.Canaan Peak is a remote and seldom-visited summit that offers great views of the surrounding area, including Henry Mountain range, Navajo Mountain, and the Kaibab Plateau. You will need to pass through the town of Escalante on your way to Canaan Peak, and it would be worth your time to stop at the Grand Staircase National Monument visitor center to view their exhibits, get some literature and brochures, and ask questions. The peak is a primitive area, and there are no amenities, so be cautious, bring food and water with you, and dress appropriately. Park your RV rental on the outskirts, and you can relax in comfort when you return and are done for the day.Bryce Canyon National Park is a series of natural amphitheaters that have been carved out of the plateaus by weather and erosion over thousands of years, and contain one of the largest groupings of hoodoos (rock spires) on the planet. There are a number of viewpoints offering magnificent views of the park, darker landscapes farther out and a blue sky that adds an impressive contrast to the reddish colored rock formations. You can hike through the valleys which contain tree stands and well-marked trails for you to follow. The park management offers ranger programs such as educational talks, evening walks, and full moon hikes.

Exploring The Area

When it's time to start thinking about dinner or even just relaxing and soaking up the culture and history, Panguitch is a friendly little town with all of this and more. The town's name, in the Native American Paiute language, means “big fish” and is a reference to the rainbow trout that populate the nearby lakes. This quaint city, one of Utah's best-kept secrets, has museums, original architecture, and annual events throughout the year; one of these is Panguitch's Big Fish Derby which is held just after the New Year has rung in and offers cash prizes for the biggest ice fishing catch. Much of the original architecture is made from brick, giving the small city a distinctive, awe-inspiring look.Cedar City, located to the west of Dixie National Forest, is a moderately sized city with plenty of culture. Some of the annual events it hosts include the Utah Shakespeare Festival, the Neil Simon Theatre Festival, and the Utah Summer Games. The city has several museums, one dedicated to regional, student, and emerging artists who engage in landscape-themed artwork, and another focusing on the pioneer and industrial history of the area. This latter museum has exhibits and memorabilia, hands-on activities, and interpretive programs, such as a guided cemetery tour. The city is small enough to take a self-guided walking tour and appreciate the local architecture and historical buildings, such as the Cedar City Utah Temple. There is also an indoor aquatic center and a winery where you can sample wines made from grapes that have been sourced and imported from California, Oregon, and Washington.Utah is an amazing place, with history, landscapes, culture, and a pioneer spirit that is both friendly and undaunted, and Bryce Canyon Sunset Campground is your introduction to it all.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
