We were in site #48, a very long PT site.There are 2 campgrounds: east rim and west rim. The west rim has the longer sites, although by the end of summer all sites are supposed to fit up to a 40 ft RV. Sites had fire rings, separate grills, lantern poles and picnic tables. All sites were gravel except handicapped ones. They also have separate walk in and back country sites for tent camping. Park has 40 person lodge, tennis courts, disc golf, hiking trails, playgrounds (total of 3, 2 in camping areas), store in ranger station, wildlife observatory tower, 2 dump stations (easy to get in and out of), and several grey water drains in the camping areas. No TV or cable-way too many trees for reception. 5 PT's in west loop, 2 in east loop. We had perfect weather for the mountains, about 60 at night and 78 in the daytime. Restrooms were very clean but also very old. Need updated. All playground equipment was new and bathhouses had new paint and shingles. The only bad thing I can say about this park is that there were a LOT of stinging insects in the camping area. Not sure if it is a favorite place to nest or what, but come prepared with bite sticks and repellent. Rangers offered our child a JR Ranger book and she finished it while we camped and earned 3 badges. We were able to see deer, and many different kinds of birds in the park. We also discovered a fabulous restaurant right outside the park called Canyon Grill. It's a little pricey but everything is homemade and wonderful.

Excellent campsites in the West Rim Campground! Clean bathhouses and very wooded and shady. The sites are very private and most have railing and decking around the perimeter. Nice trails also! Would definately recommend!!

This state park actually has two campgrounds - the East Rim & the West Rim; The East Rim campground is nothing special and I wouldn't even recommend it; The West Rim, on the other hand is simply heaven in comparison; The sites are large and there is good distance between them; The very heavily wooded campground is about as quiet and peaceful as it gets until the weekend crowds come; This state park is not easy to get to with mountain climbs and some tight turns, but it is well worth it. Park can handle just about any size rig in the West Rim campground, but stay out of the East Rim section even though the East Rim has numerous pull-throughs (small ones) and the West Rim has only three real pull-through sites; The roads in the West Rim are paved, but curvy and narrow with some pretty big drop-offs if you are not very, very careful; Again, go slow, slow, slow. The park itself has gorgeous views from the overlook and the West Rim Hiking Trail (accessible from the campground); There are two wonderful waterfalls in the canyon that are accessible by lots of stairs to the bottom; Tennis courts and a Disc Golf course are also present; The office staff was friendly; We could not locate a single site that would allow us to get internet access via our rooftop satellite dish - it was just too wooded and even sites that looked like they would work would have one pesky tree or branch in the way; Cell phone service is not good either unless you drive to the highest point up by the tennis courts. Overall, this is a beautiful campground in a natural setting. I loved this park and campground. We wish we would have had time to stay longer since the weather was not very cooperative during this short stay. I would have given it an 5 if it would have had either sewer hook-ups or a couple of more open sites for satellite
