About Us

Open March 1st – November 30th

Canyonlands Needles Outpost that operates completely off-grid with a  campground right outside the entrance of the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park, only 1.5 miles from the parks’ visitors center.  Needles Outpost combines the fun of rustic camping spots with a few modern conveniences. The Needles Outpost can accommodate both RVs and tents and tepees.

Services include gasoline, propane, a well-stocked general store with ice, treats, drinks, ice-cream, firewood and a private safe campground and bathhouse with flush toilets and showers. The store and bathhouse both run off of solar power.  All water is purchased and hauled in 1,000 gallons at a time.  When staying with us, please help us conserve power and water.

The Needles Outpost campground features a beautiful unique landscape and is right next to the park. Visitors staying with us fall asleep to warm desert sounds and wake up to a symphony of natural morning light shining on the Needles of Canyonlands National Park.

Gorgeous and relaxing

My partner and I stopped at this outpost for supplies and a shower. They had everything we needed for camping and freshening up. The service was friendly and they had some great local knowledge. The location is stunning and next time we will definitely be camping here!

Great camping and friendly management

We car camped at the Needles Outpost and found that the tent sites along the cliff face were really nice: flat tent pads, good fire rings, tables, and an AMAZING view especially at sunset. The manager in the office was super nice and we really enjoyed a quick chat and even found some useful items in their store that we needed. We can't wait to come back!

Lovely place

We loved our stay at the Outpost...Caleb and Amber were very friendly and helpful. We tent camped next to a red bluff with amazing views of the area. We will stay here again for sure! So close to the mile!

Absolutely Superb!

We visited Needles Outpost a few weeks ago while we were on a three week camping trip through 13 different national parks and it was one of our absolutely favorite spots from the whole trip. The new management (Amber and Caleb) made us feel so warm and welcome! Their easy smiles and chatter made me feel right at home in the quaint little shop they have.

Most beautiful landscape

Incredibly beautiful and very hikeable area. The highlight definitely is the huge red rock right behind the campground that offers hours of climbing and exploring as well as far views into the Canyonlands.
