Camp at Deer Creek Campground

Added by Jared Beeler

Beautiful secluded campground just outside of a beautiful canyon.

Deer Creek campground is off of the Burr Scenic drive and right outside of the lower part of Capitol Reef National Park. This campground is perfect if you are driving from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef. There are a total of 7 tent sites in the campground. There are no spots for RVs and no turn around areas for anything over 20ft long. The cost of the campground is 10 dollars per night and has a small pit toilet that is well taken care of. There are plenty of trees around the river that provide lots of shade all day. 

For contact info, visit the BLM website.
