We really enjoyed our stay at this park, mostly due to the super friendly owner and the obvious efforts he and his wife are making to create an appealing and convenient RV park.

Campground website: Cadillac Ranch RV Park
Our Site #: 4
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
3.5/5: As a general rule, this wouldn't be a particularly memorable campground from a privacy standpoint, but when we were there, they spaced people out nicely so rigs weren't parked right on top of each other. You would think this would be obvious, but a lot of campgrounds just place one RV next to another, even when they have tons of open spaces. Here, because there were only a few campers there at any given time, we always had empty spaces on either side. Yay! If the campground was full, I expect it would be a bit more tight, but we never had an issue.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
3/5: For being in the center of Bluff, it's great. We were within walking distance of everything there. The only issue is, there's not much in Bluff. We had to drive 25 minutes just to get to a grocery store (in Blanding). But, Valley of the Gods is relatively close and Natural Bridges is about an hour away. It just depends on what you're looking for. It was a bit in the middle of nowhere for us, especially given how hot it was when we visited, but there's certainly a lot within driving distance of the town.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
5/5: Gravel sites were all very level. All of the sites are pull-throughs and there was plenty of room to maneuver around them. Site utilities worked well.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):
5/5: While you still have to call for reservations, their website is up to date and more importantly, the owner is super nice and they are obviously working hard to make the place appealing to RVers. He talked to us for probably 20 minutes when we checked in and gave us all kinds of information about the town and the nearby attractions. He and his wife bought the place a year ago and have been working hard to make it nice and even expand it. I really hope they succeed because they seem to understand what's important to RVers (e.g.: Space and Wifi).
Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):
5/5: The wifi here was fantastic. Ok, sometimes it kicked us off and we had to log back on, but all things considered, for such a small operation, we were duly impressed.
This is one of those campgrounds that proves our theory that customer service makes all the difference. We have been to some super fancy high end campgrounds that we hated because the people just weren't friendly. Here, this was a very basic campground in a middle of nowhere town, but the owner was so nice and so enthusiastic about his town, and so clearly excited about all the things he and his wife were doing with the campground, that it was just contagious. They really get what RVers want - not putting people right on top of one another and investing in decent wifi. Plus, their prices were more than reasonable. Given that we just paid twice as much for a completely forgettable campground in Monument Valley, we were very happy with our stay here.
