Looking for an RV park near Capitol Reef? Go the Thousand Lakes

I like this place.

Thousand Lakes RV Resort

Yes, it’s late September and the hordes of tourists have dwindled away – but I like this place. Pulling a small trailer and without needing sewer and TV hook-ups, we got one of the prime spots along the north (back) fence of the park looking out over red plateau cliffs and verdant green and yellow hills. We have a fire-pit and a place for the tent. Everything is clean and well-tended with a special grill dinner on Monday nights.

I like that I don’t have to be surrounded by the massive land RV yachts that populate the three long aisles of full hook-ups. I appreciate the small campers, tent trailers and cars that come in beside us. And mostly, I like the reasonably quiet and expansive feeling I can get looking out over those cliffs rather than what was offered down in the National Park.
I’ve heard that the Sunglow campground near Bicknell is great too. This time, however, we’ll stay put until we head out day after tomorrow and see what’s happening down in the Dark Canyon Wilderness Area.
