Very Nice CG
Plenty of long RV sites ... but often taken up by a car with a tent. Many pull through sites, but tight and piles of rocks on the inside of the turn, making it very difficult to pull through if you have a bigger rig. We have a 30' TT pulled by a 20' pickup and found it easier to back into a pull through site. Very little shade. Easy check in at the kiosk - one day at a time. $15/$7.50 with senior pass. Many interesting hikes. Water spigots spread around. Bathrooms with flush toilets and running water in the sinks. There is an area for tents and SMALL rigs that usually has plenty of room. There is a sign before going into that area not to enter if you have a big RV. DO NOT IGNORE THIS SIGN.

Beautiful If You're Lucky
1st, there are no hook-ups so think of it as boondocking. There's no cell service, no Verizon MiFi, and of course no WiFi. The check-out time is noon, so you need to get there near that time else no luck in finding the few RV spots. Some pull-through sites would be impossible to pull your RV through.
Other than that it's a very beautiful place, but you can experience much of the park in a single afternoon.
BTW - our cost is low because of our senior pass gets us in for free and camping is half price.

Check out time is noon you better be there by 2:00 or you're not going to get a spot.
People came in between 3:00 and 9:00 and there was no spots left.
Absolutely no cell service in the park Verizon or AT&t and no TV.

This place is amazing! There is nothing like staying in lava fields. We have a fourth grader, so we get into every national park for free, but even with the park admission fee, it was only $35. There are no hookups or WiFi, but for one night in a truly magical place, it was perfect. Get there early to reserve a spot on busy days. We got there at 12:30 and easily found a pull through site for our 30ft RV. Totally level and VERY quite. Highly recommend.

Great little campground, everything is new and clean, sites are paved. If you have a big Class A, 5th, or long trailer, do not ignore the sign going into the western section of the park! It gets tight and there are no spaces big enough anyway. The loop drive and various stops and walks are well worth doing.

This campground is a hidden gem. It is one of the cleanest and nicest National Park campgrounds that we have stayed in.

The campground is well maintainedand Most everything is new. Restrooms are a mix of compost and flush. No showere. Mixed bag of sites in reference to the sizes. Fill up with water before you get there. No dump either.

It's a nice campground but hot in the summer. There about five spots that can handle 35 ft RV's but they go fast. It's first come first served so you could possibly find a tent in a pull through. It's mostly an overnight spot for travelers so it starts to empty around 9 a.m. and starts filling around 3 p.m. Closest dump dites are Carey and Arco. The park encourages you to fill your fresh water tank prior to coming to the park. They do have pressurized spigots throughout the campground. They also have two well maintained flush bathrooms in the campground but no showers. Some of the roads in the campground have tight turns for big rigs or 5th wheels but warning signs are posted to prevent entering these areas. No power so you can run generators most of the time, quiet hours are posted. Real nice visitors center as you enter the park. Ranger guided tours through the park or you can drive through the park and hike the many trails. Dogs not allowed on the trails. No campfires in campground.
