Campground website: Hitch-N-Post RV Park
Our Site #: UNK- FHU
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
1/5: RVs are parked right next to each other and the whole campground is tiny. You will be looking directly at your neighbor's RV and I don't think we could have put our awning out if we tried. There are several trees which create a little bit of ambiance, but the privacy situation is pretty lousy.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
5/5: If you're looking for a good spot to explore Kanab from, this park can't be beat. It's right in the middle of the town and we typically walked everywhere, including to the BLM office that handles the Wave lottery and several nice little restaurants. The town is just 15 minutes away from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and within an hour of some fantastic slot canyons and other hiking opportunities. I believe it's also about 90 minutes from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, though we did not visit (it was still closed for snow while we were in town.) It's a great spot to set up for a couple days while touring Southern Utah.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
3/5: This is a very tiny park, so accessibility can be tough for big rigs depending on how many people are there and which sites are available. While we had very little trouble getting into our site, we watched a 40+ foot fifth wheel owner struggle for a long while to get into his spot. It really just depends. There is a large open area in the center and the camp hosts offer assistance in coordinating arrivals and getting people parked, but depending on several factors, accessibility for very large rigs can be a challenge. Once we were in our space, we had no problems. All the utilities worked well.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):
4.5/5: You have to call for reservations and if you pay by credit card, they charge you extra, so we paid by check, but, their awesome customer service made up for any weaknesses in this category. We are endlessly amazed at what a difference friendly customer service makes in our experiences at these campgrounds. We chatted with one of the camp-hosts, Doug, several times across our week long stay and he just could not have been nicer or more helpful. Great customer service really does have such an impact and his friendliness and excitement about all that Kanab has to offer was contagious.
Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):
5/5: The campground's wifi was very good and we had no issues with our AT&T hotspot.
This could be an entirely forgettable park - it's small, cramped, offers little privacy, etc. But, it's located in a perfect spot, within walking and driving distance of many places of interest, and the customer service was incredibly friendly and helpful, leaving us with an overall positive impression. Even though the campground isn't much more than a small parking lot, it was always quiet, the place was well maintained, and the staff were warm and engaging. We would absolutely stay here again.
