Travelled to Utah from Sept 3 - 10 where I stayed in Zion Sept 3-7 and then to Bryce Sept 7-10.
Comparatively to Zion, Bryce was incredibly quiet...mainly because it was after Labour Day weekend. I checked into reception but did have to wait a few minutes at the counter as the lady at the front was incredibly busy where the phone was ringing off the hook. During that time, it gave me time to look around where the little store houses a lot of food/beverages and those last minute supplies if needed.
Reception was incredibly courteous and gave me maps and menus for restaurants around the area. I was to stay at tent side T5 where a staff member escorted me to my tent site - although it was not necessary as my site was pretty central, I thought it was a really nice touch for customer service.
Site T5 was really nice where I had my own little parking space and my tent pad was on a little hill that gave a really nice views to Bryce/Cannonville area. The area has trees and bushes which allows for shade and privacy. The tent pad was spacious and relatively level with a fire pit and picnic table. Site T5 did not have any electrical plug-in to charge your phones/cameras...so whether that's a pro or con, just an FYI. However there are electrical outlets at the main building that can be used. Only other con was that my picnic table was around an ant hill area so I got more than few visitors on my cooking ware when cooking my food...however nothing that I can really do to control that.
Bathrooms are communal which were clean; showers are communal as well and do not run on any timers nor take any change which was nice. There is a communal kitchen and eating area complete with a microwave, mini-fridge, sinks, and electric stove tops. I did not use but great for those that want to have comforts away from home.
Overall my stay at KOA was really nice and comfortable where I would definitely recommend. From Bryce National Park, it's about a 5-10 minute drive and fairly close for driving to popular restaurants. Around September it does get a bit chilly at night and very windy in the mornings so ensure to pack extra layers.
