Campground Review: Page Lake Powell Campground and RV Park

Page, AZ was an easy 75 miles East of Kanab. We stayed at Page Lake Powell Campground and RV Park.

There are about 130 sites, three quarters with full hook ups and cable (extra charge). Without cable the FHU site was $26/night, less Good Sam discount.

Sites are fairly good sized, though the pull throughs were a bit sloped in our row (we were in site #22). Gravel roads and sites. Trees are large and pretty but can be a slight problem, we ended up buying some pruning shears to deal with some small limbs in the way of our antenna, I'm sure they'll come in handy again! Also, sewer was placed a little too far into the neighbors site instead of being grouped near the water and electric. But we all had to deal with that, it was not an isolated occurrence.

The park is on the South edge of town and on a minor local highway (160) so it was very quiet at night.

Monthly sites are at the bottom, busier part of the park, short term stays at the top, with a row of permanently placed mobile homes at the very top. A couple rows of tent sites are scattered through the park and are very nice individually walled off areas with a tree and BBQ.

Very clean restrooms/showers and laundry (very inexpensive laundry). They also sell propane and other necessities in the office/store. There is an indoor pool and spa and a playground, as well as the neat sandstone formations right behind the park you can hike up, they connect you to the 8 mile Rimview Trail.

The park's free wifi worked well for us and we also had a decent but slow connection for our 3G Verizon signal.

We would stay here again if in the area due to spacious sites, how well kept the park is, and how quiet it was at night.

Front half is for monthly's and are more level, Top half are the short terms
and each row/site slopes down to the next row slightly.  We are in the next to last row.

Nice, spacious site, we had to trim the tree a little bit. Those low walls behind us are the individual tent sites.
Hard to tell here, but our front jacks are very low and our back jacks quite high off the ground
 due to the slight slope  the campground is on.
