Amber and Caleb are the proprietors of the Needles Outpost providing guests with a private, safe and quiet campground with a bathhouse including flush toilets and pay showers. The store and bathhouse both run off of solar power. All water is purchased and hauled in 1,000 gallons at a time. We conserve water and charge a separate fee for showers to keep camping prices lower and guests have the option to purchase thus also helping us conserve water in the desert where water is a precious and scarce commodity.
Visitors staying with us experience our dark night sky where the stars and milky way are a breathtaking site to see. Our guests here at Needles Outpost fall asleep in quiet, peaceful surroundings with only soft desert sounds waking up to a symphony of natural morning light shining on the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park.
This is the Wild, Rustic, Dirty Desert
Keep in mind this is a rugged camping experience not for the faint at heart. The desert is hot in the summer, the weather is unpredictable and you may experience our wild storms… You may hear coyotes, see spiders & other bugs, desert critters, snakes, and experience the annoying desert gnats at certain times of the day during the hotter summer season. You will want to bring bug spray, if you forgot we do sell it in our camp store.
If you stay with us you will get the experience of desert camping, wild, raw and rugged. It is an amazing experience to be had, with beautiful views and the feeling of freedom that is hard to find in your more civilized and populated locations.
We are a campground next to Canyonlands National Park Needles District. Hiking is very accessible. For those into 4 wheel driving, Elephant Hill, Lock Hart Basin, Beef Basin, Lavender and Davis Canyon are a short drive away. We have wonderful views & amazing sunsets for those who just want to relax & experience the peace & quiet.
