My wife and I stayed here for three days. We agree that it is the best overall campground we’ve experienced. The camp sites are nicely spaced so that visitors at one site are not right next to other sites and cannot hear every word spoken...More

The nature trail and the hike to Shakespeare Arch are easy and can offer dramatic views if a rain storm approaches. Check with the ranger about other trails that are not so well marked.

We visited to escape the rain at Bryce. I also assumed if National Geographic recommended it, it would be amazing. And indeed parts of it were. Nice new buildings and modern bathrooms which is always a plus. We did two trails, both of which were...More

It was cloudy and rainy at Bryce so I drove to Kodachrome where it was sunny and dry. Did the Shakespeare/Sentinel Trail and the Panorama Trail. Very few people here

Everywhere you turn in Kodachrome there are stunning views or formations or both. A cleverly designed and well maintained campground makes this an excellent base for day trips as well as hiking. Take the opportunity to visit Cottonwood Canyon and Grosvenor Arch. Don’t forget that...More

If parks like Bryce Canyon are too overwhelming for you, give this place a try. There's a reason for it to be called Kodachrome, the scenery is beautiful. Also, just beyond the park is Grosvenor Arch, named for the editor of National Geographic. It tells...More

You can see several different pipes from your car. We drove the roads in the park and took pictures. That day it was very hot, so we barely even got out.

I would have to recommend Bryce if you only have time for one of the two parks. The scenery at Bryce is of a unique nature and on a scale that is hard to match. Bryce is also well suited to driving through in that there is... More
