We stayed at Price Canyon over Memorial Day weekend, 2014; and there were only a couple of other campers there. We were really surprised that it didn't fill up for the holiday.
Several related families from Helper, Utah, stayed two days in the group site. Apparently, they come here every year for a picnic and overnight campout before going to the cemetery together -- a nice way to remember loved ones who have passed on. After they left, it seemed like we were completely alone; because the one or two remaining campers were scattered in sites at the other end of the campground.
Comments for photos, below:
• Turnoff for campground -- While well marked, it's easy to miss.
• Our campsite -- Long pull-thru site. Elevation 7,800 feet. Water spigot available in campground, pit toilets (very clean), no hookups or dump station. Trash must be packed out, because there's no trash pickup. No television signals, very weak cell service (messages only, and cellphone must be outside in clear area), and no Verizon broadband signal without external antenna and amplifier. Best broadband speed was slow 2G, with two bars (see broadband antenna atop the pole between our TV and Bambi). BLM camping fee: $8, with Senior Pass = $4.
• Bear warning poster -- We did not see any bears or deer during the five days we camped here.
