We’d decided to spend the night camping in Red Canyon. It would be cooler at the higher elevation, and we sleep a lot better in the cold. We drove past Bryce and found the campground at Red Canyon. There were lots of nice sites available…we settled on site 16.
The campground has running water and there are even coin operated showers. All the facilities are extremely clean and well kept by the campground host. He even sweeps the concrete areas in each campsite after each group leaves. We were very impressed! There was a poster warning of recent rattlesnake and scorpion activity so that was food for thought as we set up our tent and gathered some firewood for later. This is a Forest Service site, so its ok to collect wood.
