Sun River, OR or St. George parks

Can anyone give me a recommendation for a good RV park, or state or national park campground in the Sun River/Bend Oregon area and also the St. George/Moab area of Utah? I'd appreciate any suggestions or advice.

Thanks,

When we were in Moab last August (end of August) we stayed at:

Tent & RV Camp Sites | Archview Resort Moab Utah

If you get a pull thru site, you will have a very nice view of the Arches. Entrance to Arches NP and Canyonland NP are only a few minutes away.

This park is about 10 miles north of Downtown Moab.

We enjoyed our stay.

Last summer (mid August) we stayed 5 days on the south side of Moab (hwy. 191) at OK RV Park, which is a PA park @ $17.00 a night w/full HUs and 50 amp service. I liked the park...clean with a nice laundry room and nice folks running the place. View wasn't bad either. You do have to drive through Moab to get to Arches(not far) and to the north side of Canyonlands but the CG is just as convenient to the south-east side of Canyonlands as well.

Arches was great but I sure did enjoy Island in the Sky on the north side of Canyonlands (past Arches entrance on 191 then left on 313). The view from the cliffs across from the Island in the Sky Visitor's Ctr. is spectacular. The twisty one lane dirt road you'll see over the cliff is not for the faint of heart but can be driven in a vehicle with a 'little more than normal' ground clearance, a 4wd would be more appropriate. Jeep rentals in Moab is an option for the 'kidney hardy'....pack a lunch and always carry LOTS of water on your day trips.

No experience with St. George area. When we visited Zion NP, we stayed on the east side of the park in Glendale on hwy. 89 and used h. 9 to the east entrance of the park. Zion was one of our favorite NPs. Safe travels. Bob

EDIT: Just outside of Moab (north) hang a right on hwy. 128, it follows the banks of the Colorado River and is a very scenic drive.

Just a few miles south of Sunriver is LaPine State Park. It is right on the Deschutes River. Easy access and very nice. No sewer hookups, but there is an on-site dump station. Click the link to my homepage and you will find an album of photos taken at LaPine State Park.

That general area is actually full of great places to stay. Many campgrounds just west of Sunriver along the Cascade Lakes Highway, most right on one of the lakes. Within a 20 mile radius of Sunriver there are probably at least 25 public and private campgrounds.

We stay at Portal RV in Moab.

Near St George, check out Sand Hollow State Park outside Hurricane. Huge sites, lots of space between sites, and really nice desert views.

We did that drive in our Wrangler. Beautiful. Most of it would be OK in a high clearance 2WD, but I felt much better in a 4WD.

Moab campground

We just spent nine days here and I would recommend:

Canyonlands Campground | Moab, UT

The nice thing about the campground is that it is right in town and you can walk to everything.

Another vote for LaPine State Park and some sites do have sewer hookup. There is a old cabin that is in really bad shape a couple miles north of the LaPine State Park CG that was in a John Wayne movie(think it was true grit)

For the Zion NP area, I highly recommend Zion River RV Park, neat, clean, well organized, very friendly folks working there, reasonable rates (especially if your Good Sam/FMCA/Etc., discounts), nice/good accessibility on sites, good Wifi, etc., etc.

While I agree that Zion River RV Park in Virgin is nice RV park, there is no cell coverage in that area from any company at present. I found a few glitches in the wi-fi at the RV park, ( due to the rules, regs, and whims of the ISP provider they use), but all-in-all just a bit on the less than average side (but not much). One can find cell coverage in the local towns either east or west of Virgin and also plenty of free cafe wi-fi in both too.
