    Refund policy

  • This time of year we should be able to drive into there and get a campsite in the park. $15/night. We will stay in the campground which has pit toilets this time of year and dayhike during the day. We do get a fireplace to gather around in the evening. If we get enough folks I'll try and reserve one of the group sites.

    The temps should...and I said should be around 30 at night and in the 60s or 70d during the day. It's a geat time to be in the Canyonlands. Great scenery, good tempetures and hikes and very few people.

    The hikes will be easy to moderate and not over seven miles.

    I am charging a little deposit because I only charge anything on my more major trips to help me a little with my overhead. If you show up you get half of your deposit back.

    I'm coming back on Friday. You can stay as long as you like.

    Is this the trip that was cancelled? If so, Jay and I will probably go on our own.

    Which campsite are we staying at? Needles looks cool. Last year I missed out on a guided hike because you have to make reservations. Can we do that one day? What's the itinerary. I getting excited to go! I'm firm on my commitment to go is everyone else??

      I'm going and looking forward to it! I have only been in this area in the summer and it was way too hot to stay in canyonlands. Needles cost $15 so I'm wondering if this is the campground we will be using. We checked online and it is first come first served this time of year. Two cars and ten people are allowed per site. Perhaps we could share a site and splitt the cost?

    This is during kids' spring break, so wondering your perspective on bringing almost 5 & 7 yr olds? My main thought is that we wouldn't hike at the same rate or distance, but it would be fun to camp w/ the group. I'm an experienced camper/hiker and the wee ones enjoy (primitive) camping and being outdoors.

    February 12, 2013

    • Rebecca O.

      I wouldnt have any problems with you bringing your kids along, but I'm not in charge:)

    Carpool from Denver? Its a long way away so no hurry to respond. I can drive my 1990 Honda civic or ride with somone.

    December 29, 2012

    • Rebecca O.

      David you could carpool with us. We drive an old Honda CRV but it has all-wheel drive.
