The fruita campground is nice and clean but it is first come first serve and packed with people! It is a great option for families with kids or big groups, but fills up fast. If you find that the site is full, or you are looking for privacy or some quiet time in nature, head to BLM land where you...

We just went to this campground for the first time. It was full, but didn't feel crowded. It is a mixture of RV's and tents. We tent camped next to an RV, but happily their generator malfunctioned. Bathrooms were standard - just cold water - bring your own soap, but they were spotless - so clean. There was a picnic...

Everything about the camp ground was great... location, cleanliness, quiet, parking, etc. My only dislike was the lack of privacy between camp sites. I like bushes and more trees. Not used to desert camping, its a little different when its all open like this camp ground. There are 3 loops next to orchards and trails and a store that sells...

The campground setting is absolutely fabulous. Surrounded by amazing red rock formations, the Scenic drive, Fremont River and the Historic Fruita Orchards this place is just wonderful. I like the fact that there are limited number of camping spots making this a relatively quiet and comfortable place to camp. I loved that fact that after a long hot day spent...

great spot to spend a few days ... the campground is close to everything you want to see. Its nice to come back here after a day of hiking and enjoy the shade and grassy areas by the creek. It can be a hassle getting a spot as its very popular....get here early. we would come back.

We slept at fruita for 3 days. the camping is beautiful with lots of fruits and deers. the campsite are close to each other with no bushes (no privacy). there was rude campers who went through our campsite at anytime of the day... we would stay there again, very cheap.

A very nicely located National Park campground, good for tents. It is important to get there early, as it is often full by noon or earlier. No reservations. Many sites are under the trees, important during hot months.

This is a beautiful campground nestled among the red rock and sandstone of the area. There are HUGE cottonwood trees and a little river running behind the campground. No reservations here, so we got up for sunrise at Bryce Canyon and headed East! We were lucky to get the next to last spot! No showers, but good sized bathroom and...

“If you have a tent and you have a choice in the first ring, go for the higher sites or those on the side of the campground hosts.”

“some sites are bigger than others. Some sites are closer to neighbors than others. You can't reserve, but once you are there you get first dibs on the best sites after someone leaves. Just talk to the host.”
