    One of my favorite campgrounds ever! Fantastic rock formations are the highlight of this Park, and you can camp right between some of them. The walk in sites on loop A are the best sites, not far from the parking area. There are shade ramadas at every site, water as well. Showers, bathrooms, etc. Very clean place as well. Nearby is Lake Mead and St. Thomas Cove for swimming and fishing in summer months. Temps in summer are brutal, beware! There are also a few areas to hike and explore Indian petroglyphs, native american art pecked on to the red rocks. Fantastic place!
