RV Camper Reviews:
Great Location! Very Clean! Friendly Staff!
“Great Location: The proximity of “Kanab RV Corral” to Zion, Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Canyon National Parks was perfect for us. Also, close to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the Heritage House Museum, Kane County Visitor Center, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Walking distance to many restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. Very Clean: Pride of ownership is exhibited throughout the park. Especially noteworthy is the restrooms, showers, and pool. Spotless! Friendly Staff: Not only are Dale and Kristy (owners) and their workcamper crew extremely friendly but enjoy sharing their vast knowledge of local site-seeing activities”. On Air – Trip Advisor

Great RV Park – Clean, Quaint, Friendly
We stayed two nights at the Kanab RV Korral when we visited the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Although it’s a bit of a hike to the North Rim (78 miles), we chose this park as it provided full hookup sites, clean showers/restrooms, and laundry facility. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It is walking distance to Kanab and the various stores and restaurants the town provides. We’d definitely return to this park if our travels bring us back this way. shelkem – Trip Advisor

RV Camper Reviews:
Easy access to Northern Ariz and southern Utah…great base
“We based out of this park for 5 days, taking day trips to Zion, Lake Power/ Glenn Canyon Dam, Vermilion Cliffs, North Rim of the Grand Canyon/Jacobs Lake, Bryce Canyon, Pipe Springs, southern Grand Staircase Escalante….and will have to come back for the Pink Sand Dunes, etc…. Can walk to laundry across the street, 5 restaurants within an easy walking distance, and a block away, great undeveloped area, large fields to exercise our dog. Was here during heavy rains and appreciated the heavy gravel pads as the red clay was terrible when wet at our sightseeing stops. Showers were a back up to our RV but were conveniently located within the park. Hosts were very helpful and helped position us on arrival into our campsite. We extended our stay…would come back”. Susan B. – Trip Advisor

RV Camper Reviews
“Very simple and easy to get into. We just drove by, pulled in and called, and the owner came right over to check us in. Great price at $25 a nite with full hookups. Beautiful ride to the north rim.” Julie, Google reviewer
“Great place to stay! They are doing some work so no facilities yet but they are getting there. They have the most important thing down already – friendliness! Both Eric and Alicia were very nice. They helped us with two mail issues and gave us great tips on what to see in the area. They genuinely wanted us to have a good experience and we did. We stayed for 2 weeks and had plenty to do and see. The park is quiet and the spaces are huge! Our rig is on the smaller side but they can fit the big boys easily! All the spaces are pull-thru which is nice as well. Full hookups and the rates are cheap. We paid $25/night but if you stay a week the rate is $125. Cannot beat that! The park is close to Kanab, UT (about 10-15 mins) and it has everything you need, gas, groceries, restaurants, etc. The park is MUCH cheaper and less crowded than the parks in Kanab. Definitely worth going here for quiet and more space. They are doing great things with it and I hope we get the chance to come back someday and see the progress!” Meandering Life – Campendium

Calling All Animal Lovers
“Hubby and I love to volunteer and Best Friends is one of our favorites. Puppies, dogs, elder dogs, kitties, cats, piggy’s, goats, horses, birds, rabbits, and other small animals all need love and attention so no matter what you love to hug, it’s here waiting for you! We stay in one of their two RV spots for a peaceful view of the sandstone canyon and you can access both Zion and Bryce Canyon within two hours. Take the tour and be amazed at the reach this Sanctuary has on our country’s rescue organizations and homeless animals. Learn what is being done to “save them all”. We enjoy the vegan lunch, only $5.00 while chatting with staff and other volunteers. Our last two visits have been volunteering with the elder dogs and piggies. Great place for scout groups, rescue organization, and families. It gets hot here in the summer so we only visit late October”. Rebekajean – Trip Advisor
