Campground Review: Red Ledge RV Park, Kanarraville, UT

Just 15 miles South of Cedar City, UT is the tiny town of Kanarraville. Besides the Red Ledge RV Park there are virtually no services. No grocery store, no restaurants, no gas stations. But there are a couple of slot canyon hikes nearby and less than 10 miles to the Kolob Canyon entrance of Zion National Park.

Kanarraville sits 5 miles off of I-15 and it's lack of services means there is really only  local traffic going through "town"; thus it is very, very quiet at night.

Red Ledge doesn't have a website, they rely on their Passport America page and RV Park Reviews. The Park is small and the 22 sites are quite tight, especially the few pull through sites, because this park was built before slide-outs were common. Full hookups at each site, 30 amp electric. $26/night, $13/night for Passport America members after the first night.

The free wifi was extremely slow due to the remoteness of the town. Our 3G Millenicom service was slightly better. 3G Verizon service worked well.

The Park offers laundry (very inexpensive), showers/restrooms, hot tub (winterized while we were there) and a small store (inside the office) where they rent movies for $1, sell local free range eggs, and have a book exchange. Management was friendly and easy going.

As mentioned above, our site was extremely close to our neighbors, luckily both of us were quiet! Our neighbors site faced a lovely green space with picnic tables, but our site opened onto the next site over where we were able to park our truck.

The redeeming factors of this park are the QUIET, the proximity to hiking, and the pleasant management. Due to the windy weather during our stay we met very few of our neighbors. If we were to stay here again I probably would not request a pull through but would try for one of the few back in sites that could accommodate a large rig.

Looking down the pull through row. Office on the left, we are on the right second rig from the far end.
One of the rentable cabins is at the end of the driveway.

That's our Montana with our truck in the site to the right. Yes, that is really, really close!
We never even saw or heard our neighbors, have no idea if they were even there!

Looking down the other side of the pull through row. A large Phaeton has a grassy site on the left.
The foothills are less than half a mile away. That's our Montana on the right.

A view from the back entrance. Shower/laundry building on right. Back in sites with nice grassy area on the right.
The back in sites could possibly support a 30 ft rig.

View of the large grassy area outside our next door neighbors rig. There are a couple of small cabins for rent, you can
see one on the left, plus more of the back in sites along the back wall.


  1. Beautiful sunset. It looks so peaceful -- everywhere you go!

  2. That snapshot of the sunrise is breathtaking! Redge Ledge should definitely have a website, right? With all the positive reviews and a camp site that gorgeous, they can definitely market via the internet. Congrats to your remarkable stay!
