There is no doubt that camping at Bryce Canyon National park is the best way to experience the park! Pick up one of our luxury Sprinter campervans in Las Vegas and you are just a 3 hour drive from the otherworldly red hoodoos and world-famous night skies of Bryce Canyon. Unfortunately, an incredible place like this gets busy, so it can be hard to find a place to park for the night. We don’t want that happening to you, which is why we’ve listed our three favorite campgrounds close to the entrance. Take a look!
Our 3 Favorite Bryce Campgrounds
1. Ruby’s Inn & Campground
Ruby’s Campground is the perfect stop for the weary traveler, especially those coming from the bare bones campground offerings of Zion National Park or Capitol Reef. They offer a grocery store, showers, and even a restaurant at the camping area. This spot is just outside park boundaries, so even if your Bryce Canyon adventures run long, you’re still close by. In a pinch, this is probably the best place to roll in and find an open site. Nonetheless, we’d recommend booking in advance.
2. North or Sunset Campgrounds
Surrounded by red rocks and under the darkest skies in the country, a night here will not disappoint. Because these are remote places, don’t expect electrical hook-ups or fancy toilets. There is running water, however, and the perfect sites should make up for a lack of electricity. Due to their proximity to the park lodge, and hiking trails, they typically book up really quick, so if you want to stay inside the park, book here early!
3. Red Canyon Campground
An incredible place like Bryce can get crowded. Fortunately, those seeking a last-minute booking will likely find it at Red Canyon Campground. Located in the Red Canyon of Dixie forest, this is a great first-come-first-served campground option. With showers, pit-toilets and extensive trail options, this site is perfect for avoiding crowds without having to go too far from the park. After all, it’s only a 20 minute drive.
