Back Up the Boat...I Mean Winnebago & Mountain View RV Park

Initially, we bought a cute 22' Winnebago Remington Sunny Brook 21DS travel trailer to do our weekend trips with.  It was a very functional trailer except that it was just a tad too small when Scott was sleeping since it was a split queen bed.  The length was just too short for him although I was very comfortable.  As you can see there is a sofa that converts to the bed, which made the length short.  The table in the photo actually tucks behind the sofa under the overhead cabinets so there was a nice amount of room once the slide was extended.
Here are the photos of our first travel trailer.  We sure loved her but with 3 dogs, it just wasn't practical or large enough at night.

MONTICELLO, UT and the Mountain View RV Park - Our First Trip

When we had our little 22' Winnebago Remington we went to two RV parks.  The first on May 4-5, 2017 was in Monticello, Utah called Mountain View Park.  

Since this was our first park, we didn't have anything to compare it to, however, the hosts were very nice and friendly.  We were assigned a back-in site (#9) and they helped me back in our trailer and gave wonderful encouragement the entire time. It only took 2 tries to get it all backed in and that made me quite happy and accomplished.

The site itself was very clean.  It was a bit rustic, but for the area, it fit right in.  Monticello is a very small desert Mormon community near many of the national parks in southern Utah.

The park contained a decent shower facility and laundry hookups.  There was also a somewhat crab-grassy dog kennel area where we let the girls run around, but be cautious if you have small dogs, because they could get out under the fence where the gates were.  The center area had pull through sites with grass and the few around the center section were back-ins that were mainly gravel.  They also have a convenient dump station.
2017 Reservation Rate 
RV Sites with full service cable - $38 per night
Tent Sites $20 per night

The office is open from 8:30 am to 8 pm daily.

  • Free Wi-Fi at all sites

Mountain View RV Park is located near the north end of town, but the town is so small you can actually walk anywhere you'd like quite easily.

We were in Unit 9

Overall, I'd give it a 5 out of 10 rating.

While we were in Monticello, we also attended the Monticello LDS Temple, which was a very nice experience.  I met a lady whose son is my neighbor back home.  What a small world!
