Bluff, Utah

Cadillac Ranch RV ParkOther reviewers at

April, 2016

The Lowe’s overall rating (based on value for the
money, quality of amenities and utilities, site suitability
and what we think other RV’ers in our situation would
be looking for) = 5 out of 10 stars


Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This very small park (15 sites) sits just off the highway through
town, and there was little exterior traffic noise at our site (#12)
which admittedly was further off the road.  The office worker
was very friendly and helpful, reachable at any hour since she
lived onsite.  Being in Bluff, there was plenty to do and the
campground got quiet as everyone left in the mornings and
stayed away most of the day.

Road and site access/type?
All gravel, and all pull-through sites.  Very easy access.

Sites spacious and/or level?  Comments?
The sites were quite level, and large enough to park vehicles
next to RV’s.  Unfortunately, they were not spacious width-wise,
especially with our neighbor’s truck parked right up next to the
driver’s side of our coach.  However, we didn’t see any other RV
parks in town that were roomier or significantly better.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The full-hookup 50-amp power was adequate and water
pressure was good.  The Verizon signal to our phones and
boosted hotspot was marginal at best, and unusable a lot of the
time.  It seems Verizon has not allocated enough bandwidth for
the users in this area, because our connection to the tower
appeared to be OK.  The Free WiFi provided by the park was
useless.  No TV cable offered here, but some folks reported
good Over-The-Air reception.  We didn’t get any channels, but
I think we were having a problem with our antenna so I couldn’t

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Both.  The fire pit was actually a portable container but looked
OK.  We didn’t have time to use it.  Firewood was for sale at the
office and the convenience store down the highway.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
I saw three individual bathrooms with showers, and although
they had definitely seen better days, they looked clean enough
that I would be comfortable using them.  No laundry room at
the park, but a fairly decent one was just a couple of miles up
the freeway.

Pet friendly?
Kind of – there were some open areas around the fringes of
the park where doggies could run.  No designated area in the
park, and dogs should definitely be kept on-leash in the confined
campsite area.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
The town and highway were so quiet that it was easy to take a
stroll around the area, and the Bluff Fort Museum just across
the highway is definitely worth a visit.  Otherwise, no
hiking/biking trails lead right out of the park and not a great
place to ride bikes.

Groceries & other services nearby?
This is a SMALL town, no grocery stores with fresh fruits and
veggies.  I hate that!  There was a convenience store just up the
highway and the Twin Rocks Cafe within walking distance.  The
cafe food was quite good, with good service.  The nearest “real”
grocery store was Clark’s, 25 miles north in Blanding.  Be aware
that Blanding is a “dry” town with no alcohol.  There was a small
convenience store/gas station just south of town that was out of
the city limits and sold beer.

I like small RV parks, and this was one was small indeed.
However, the sites were too darn close together!  The park’s
location was ideal for folks who wanted to visit many of the
popular attractions and hiking areas around Bluff.  Frankly, we
didn’t see any better parks in the are while driving through a
couple of them.  I would just call this place average, nothing
special but convenient.  The park was for sale when we stayed,
so many things could change in the near future, for better or
