  • This Utah State Park tucked away at the edge of Grand Escalante National Monument is a true gem. The little developed camping area is very pleasant and neat as a pin. (It is pretty popular so it is be...  more »
  • We visited just before Christmas and so had the entire park to ourselves. We explored several trails and found the monoliths quite amazing and the area very photogenic. It's worth the drive there.  more »
  • We only had time for a quick stop whilst enroute to Monument Valley. Could certainly spend more time exploring this area.  more »

  • This place is an oasis! The park itself is amazing geographically and in the way it is taken care of. All of the trails are very well manicured and marked. The whole park is dog friendly, one of the most alluring things about it as I hardly go places I cannot take my dogs. The Basin Campground is wonderful. Hot showers, laundry mat, flush toilets, firewood (all money from the wood sales goes to the local boy scout troop) and ice all available at the campground. The campsites are all very well situated and give the guest an ample amount of seclusion from the other sites. Hint: numbers 12, 13 and 17 look to be the best spots in the grounds. The gentleman, Danchel, that was working the visitors center was a gem. I asked a lot of questions about the area and he answered all of my questions with ease. He made the stay that much more enjoyable. Sunset hike do the Angel's Palace. Sunrise hike do Shakespeare's Arch.
  • Friendly Helpful Staff. Very Well Kept Park in a Majestic Setting! Top Notch Showers, Dish Washing Station's and even have a Laundry Facility! Wonderful trails to hike! We were visiting Bryce but would have loved to had time to spend more time in the park! Kudo's to Utah if all their State Park's are like this!!
  • this campground was WONDERFUL. they had beautiful facilities including rain showers, laundry facilities, a dishwashing station, and firewood for $5. our site was sectioned off by enough trees to give us a little privacy. the only downfall is that the campground is about 20 min away from a gas station and there is absolutely no service...but if you prepare for these things it’s really not a big deal. Overall LOVED the Kodachrome campground and would definitely recommend!!
  • You have to stop at Bryce Canyon but don't stay long, the crowds are terrible. See what you gotta see and then head the short drive to this park. It is small and not crowded and the views are stunning, facilities are great, staff is super friendly, and the hikes are beautiful.
  • Just got back from exploring some of Kodachrome. You can probably spend a lot of time and never see the same thing twice. Very little traffic. Didn’t see anyone on the hikes that we took. We did take our dogs. Trails are in great shape. The bathrooms were clean. Roads were in awesome shape. I would ask locals the condition of the roads before venturing out, if it has rained recently.
