Utah RV Parks: The RV parks in Utah You Want to Visit!

RV parks in Utah lie scattered in large numbers around the state, except in the arid west and Northwest portions. There’s no scarcity of Utah RV parks, however, in the central part of the state from the Arizona border all the way north to the Idaho state line, and also along the main travel routes in the eastern third of Utah.

My wife and I traveled through Utah on a 30,000-mile road trip that began at our home in the Pacific Northwest and took us into the four corners of the country. We had gone in search of America and of ourselves, and the trip is recounted in my book, In Search of America’s Heartbeat: Twelve Months on the Road.

The Utah RV parks where we stayed were:

Red Canyon RV Park near Panguitch. This RV park provided gravel interior roads, 30 gravel sites with patios, all with full hookups, 17 of them pull-throughs. It also provided groceries and RV supplies. This park is convenient to Bryce Canyon National Park, a terrific destination for photographers. Bryce Canyon, originally known as Bryce’s Canyon, is a land of amazing multicolored rock spires. The original white settler here, a cattleman, described it as “a helluva place to lose a cow.”

Quail Run RV Park in Sandy, near Salt Lake City. This RV park provided paved interior roads, 59 paved sites, all pull-throughs and all with full hookups. It also provided cable TV, laundry room and RV supplies. This park is located in the midst of the metropolitan area that seems to continue forever in north-central Utah, and is handy to the attractions of Salt Lake City.

If you’re considering exploring any Utah RV parks, I hope you’ve found these descriptions helpful. If you know of any other RV parks in Utah that I should add to this list, e-mail me at
