It looks like a great adventure, but you're not going to find it with this waypoint.
To get there you need to stay on HWY 12 just south of the city of Escalante. Then look for BLM200 (Hole-in-Rock Rd). You will take that dirt road for 26 miles, turn left on BLM252, and take that for 2 miles. Park hike down to the slot canyon and have a great time!
Wrong! The waypoint for this destination is incorrect. The Lower Calf Creek Falls is still another 18-miles up the road from here.
The worst KOA I have ever been to. When we arrived there was an employee holding the office door open so she could smoke a cigarette. Technically she was smoking outside, but she made the entire inside smell like cancer sticks too! There were five people working the front desk for only one person checking in (me). There were no employees outside, and believe me there is a lot of work that needs to be outside!
I got one of their super-tent sites. You have to share the sink with the other super-tent site. There is NO hot water as advertised. The gas line going to the on demand hot water heater is gone. The picnic table rocks more than my granny’s rocking chair. The bushes are so overgrown you have to scratch your truck up backing in. If you have a small car you should be fine. The lights stay on all night in the tented area; probably because you are backed up to a vacant field next to a Burger King parking lot. Not the safest place to stay.
The restroom smelled like raw sewage. Worse yet, the door to the toilets are too big so you have to straddle the toilet to open/close the door!
Nearly every plant is dead there.
There is no Tepee site.
Trash is everywhere. Not trash from campers, trash from the staff and the their failure to complete maintenance tasks.
There is a lot of downhill hiking involved. When we were there the elevators going up were not working so you had to hike back up to get out. On the way out people were dying everywhere!
However, this cave is one of the most amazing things you will ever see in your entire lifetime. If you have opportunity to see the cave and take the full hike around to lower level floor DO IT! I have wanted to see this since I was a kid and it did not disappoint.
They have a two night minimum. We only needed to stay there for one night, and they will let you stay there for one night with a “penalty” fee. They offered us a one night stay in the overflow area. No water, no electricity, no grass… just dirt in the open for $77.00! Ummm… NOPE! We went elsewhere.
We tent camped there for one night. The lady working the front desk when we checked in was Michelle. She is a super friendly and helpful person. She refused to take a phone call until she finished helping me, so when you are there they treat you like the most important person.
The site is pretty windy until the sun goes down, but that is pretty much all of New Mexico. The pool is pristine, and the restrooms/showers and super clean! There is plenty of places to walk you pets. Also, there is a coy pond with a bench too. The bench has horse shoe cup holders on each side, clever!
We had the beef and pork sandwiches for dinner that night and they were delicious. There were experimenting with spicy mustard on the pork sandwiches. Try is you will like it, I know I did and was pleasantly surprised. All-in-all a great KOA with a great staff.
This is the second time I have taken the tour and it's still great. There is a 17-minute video before the tour that will answer a lot of questions. After that you get to go below the surface and see the Missile. Your tour guide will give you a lot of information and will answer any questions you have.
After viewing the area below ground, you come back up and get to view the above ground stuff as long as you want. There a platform that leads up to a glass covered area where you can see directly down to the missile. That is a great spot to take a picture (hint: place your camera/phone directly onto the glass to eliminate and reflection).
My 13 y/o son thought is was amazing!
