Capitol Reef

Looking for campground comments. My wife and I are very familiar with southern/central Utah as we spend a lot of time around Moab, Bryce NP and Zion NP. However, we have not been to Capitol Reef in over 21 years and want to go for our 25th year anniversary this year.

I have been looking at two campgrounds and would like to hear from those who have been to both or either.

Wonderland RV Park and Thousand Lakes RV Park are the two I am debating. Wonderland sites are 75' in length which would be better so we don't have to drop the trailer but if Thousand Lakes is nicer (1000 times) I would entertain the option of dropping the trailer.

Any thoughts and/or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Mike.

This past September, we stayed in the campground in the Capitol Reef park. Very nice! Be sure to try the little pies at Gifford Homestead (also in the park).

Sorry, don't know anything about those campgrounds you've mentioned.

Enjoy your trip . . . nice place!

I don't know about Thousand Lakes but I stayed at Wonderland this past September and really liked it. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Convenient location, nice people, lots of room and good internet.

The campground at Capitol Reef NP is nice but not well suited for big rigs.

Thanks for the comments guys. Personally, with the reviews that I have read I probably couldn't go wrong with either one. I am leaning towards Wonderland as the sites are longer.

Mike.

I stayed at Wonderland last summer (June 2013). While the pull through sites are long the trees are very close in some sites. Out of the 4 sites that were available when I arrived, only one was usable because of the overgrown trees. Even the site I used I had to park at one end to be able to open my slides. The first site they put me in I wasn't able to get through without scraping the trees. They constantly run the sprinklers and soak everything. There was a 3" deep "lake" outside my front door because they watered so much. I had to turn off the system so I could unhook the morning I left so I didn't get soaked. The park is very nice except for the extreme lack of tree maintenance and the over watering.

We drove the car down to Thousand Lakes one day and it was a busy place and quite dusty because of all the activity.
