Full Review

This is our second stay here at Willow Wind. The first review can be found here.

This park is in a great location, right in the small town of Hurricane, UT and near Zion National Park. With its shady sites and beautifully kept amenities, it’s a little oasis spot. The campground is moderately large, with 185 sites plus tent camping area and three teepees for rent.

Our back-in concrete space (#178) was solid, reasonably level and not difficult to get into. There is an intrusive concrete ditch in the road right in front of the office which is a bit annoying, but can be avoided after getting the rig parked by using the other entrance/exit.  The site was just barely long enough to park our rig plus all vehicles. We’re in a newer site, which meant less shade and grass, but it was satellite friendly.

50 amp electric, water and sewer connections worked fine, although we did experience one day of water outage due to some repair work. The staff provided ample notice, so we were able to fill our tank. A water main break occurred during our last stay too, so I don’t know if this is a regular thing, or if we just got lucky!

The provided cable TV worked perfectly, with 40+ clear channels. We were given a code for the free wifi, which worked beautifully. I was able to work, zoom, and even do limited streaming on my ipad. The wifi would momentarily drop from time to time, but overall it was much better quality than I’ve typically found.

It should be noted that this is one of the few campgrounds that does NOT accept mail. Campers are directed to forward mail to general delivery at the nearby post office and pick it up there. FedEx and UPS will deliver directly to your site, so long as the site number noted on the address. I didn’t try to have anything delivered.

The park landscaping and amenities are immaculately kept. The clubhouse is beautiful with lounge space downstairs and an upstairs loft with pool table. There are two bathhouses, one a traditional type, and the other (nearest the office) has individual bathroom units equipped with shower, toilet and sink. I love those, it’s like showering in a home bathroom. All were bright, tiled, modern, and climate controlled. There are two coin laundry facilities and a fitness room equipped with weight machine, recumbent bicycle, elliptical and a treadmill.

The cost was on par with similar campgrounds at a bit over $50/night, up a few dollars from our last stay. Being in town, Walmart, shopping, restaurants, and a movie theater are located conveniently nearby. Zion is only about a half hour away and Bryce Canyon National Park is within day trip distance, about 2.5 hours away. If you’re into ATV-ing, there are miles of trails within 30 minutes. Jeff tells me that several world class mountain bike trails are within 30-45 minutes drive away.

Bottom Line: Great sites, beautifully-maintained grounds and amenities, at a decent price.
