You will find no campsites in Kolob Canyons. Camping is allowed in designated camping locations, although not in pullouts or parking lots. Camping is popular all campsites are frequently full by noon on mondays to fridays and each morning on weekends. From mid-March through November the campsites are full nearly every evening. Bookings at Watchman Campground (see below) are suggested if you'd like to ensure an outdoor camping place. If you're not able to create a reservation, the sooner within the day you arrive, the greater the time of having a campground.
