Wonderland RV Park

While in Torrey, we stayed at the Wonderland RV Park.  It’s the closest RV park to the western entrance to Capitol Reef.  The thing about Torrey, is the entire area is a 1X (as opposed to 3G or 4G) Verizon area.  We think there is an AT&T tower in town, but that’s not helping us any.  Anyway, internet sucks pretty much everywhere.   The Slackers restaurant, Days Inn and the visitors centers all have decent internet.  The RV park wifi ranges from really good to non-existent.  There doesn’t seem to be a pattern to when it’s good and when it’s not.

It’s a nice park, we like it.  We’re on site 11 and we have excellent access to the southern sky for for satellite.  Cell phones and text work intermittently due to the lack of coverage.  Sites are fairly level, you will need a board on one side.  They are fairly close together.  Interior roads and sites are gravel with grass in between.  The laundry is small.  It’s very clean and reasonably priced.  No data on the restrooms.  There are some trees, so if you want satellite, make sure you ask for a treeless site.  The people who run the park are very pleasant.  When we got here she gave us a list of available sites to go look at so we could pick the one we wanted.

This is the view from the windshield of the RV in the morning.

This is the goose that lives down here.  He likes to patrol the fence line.

The park, as you drive in.

The only knock I have on this park is the guy that waters the grass.  He leaves the sprinklers on for days and pays no attention to whether he’s watering the grill on the picnic table or not.  The spigot on our site is leaking a little, and has made a pretty good puddle under the mountain bikes.
