OverviewSunset Campground is located in beautiful and unique Bryce Canyon National Park. Known for its colorful rock spires and grand vistas that sweep out over the High Plateaus region of the Colorado Plateau, Bryce Canyon is the ultimate camping destination.
Situated at an elevation of about 8,000 feet, the campground is located 1.5 miles from the park's Visitor Center. Famed Sunrise and Sunset Points are nearby at the heart of the magnificent geologic wonder of Bryce Amphitheater, where hiking and photography opportunities are plentiful.
A ponderosa pine forest towers over Sunset Campground, offering equal parts sun and shade. The site is situated in a gently rolling landscape dotted with shrubs and summer wildflowers.
Bryce Canyon offers several day-hiking trails, many of which are inter-connected. Single trails range from easy to strenuous, and from less than a mile in length up to 11 miles. The most popular hikes are combinations of two or three trails.
Sunset Campground is a very popular site with paved roads and gravel parking spurs, flush toilets and drinking water. Picnic tables and fire rings with grills are also provided.
The Colorado Plateau contains a multitude of awe-inspiring landscapes and Bryce Canyon lies very close to many of them, including Red Canyon, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Panguitch Lake, Boulder Mountain, Calf Creek Recreation Area, Capitol Reef National Park, Zion National Park and Grand Canyon National Park.
