Camp at Coyote Hollow Campground

Rate this Adventure Utah Coyote Hollow Campground

Added by Nancy Lappetito

This secluded campground with huge sites is located in very close proximity to Bryce Canyon National Park.

I feel a little guilty sharing this camping spot because part of the allure is that no one else really knows about it, but what the hell, I'll just go for it.

The campground is near the Thunder Mountain Trailhead, which I'm told is popular with mountain bikers and hikers, though that combination sounds a bit dangerous to me. Despite the popularity of the area, we had the place to ourselves, aside from the herd of cows that wandered past us around dinnertime. They were friendly in the sense that they left us alone, which was more than fine with me. There are four large sites each having a picnic table and fire pit. There was not potable water on site but there were toilets. We enjoyed great stars, the howling of coyotes, and a nice fire.

I highly recommend this campground, not only for the seclusion but also because of it's proximity to Bryce Canyon. It is about 15 minutes to the park and far enough away from all the stores of the small town that you don't feel like you're having to actually see people. I camped in early October but I would not suggest going much later in the season than that unless you're prepared and enjoy a cold morning. The overnight temperatures were in the mid 30s.

The road is not hard to find if you know what you are looking for but note that there are not signs for the campground from the main road. This campground is located 1 mile from SR 12 on Coyote Hollow Road No.113.
