North Campground is at the north end of Bryce Canyon National Park across from the Visitor Center. Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, North and Sunset, located in close proximity to the visitor center, Bryce Canyon Lodge and the geologic wonder that is the Bryce Amphitheater. Both have restrooms with flush toilets, and drinking water. During the summer months coin-operated laundry and shower facilities are available at the general store nearby. There are no hook-ups in the campgrounds, but a fee-for-use dump station is available for RV users at the south end of North Campground.

NOTE: Dump-station is closed during winter because of freezing temperatures.

ALSO NOTE: Bryce Canyon campgrounds are getting an upgrade this year (2011)! Both North Campground and Sunset Campground will have SOME sites TEMPORARILY closed this summer while our crews work to upgrade roads, water lines, and restrooms.

Nights I've camped here

Norden Bombsight training at Deming NM

During the Second World War, Deming was again the designated location for a training base. This time, the Deming Army Air Base was established east of town to train young airmen in the use of the secret Norden bombsight. The trainees were processed in groups of 500 every 6 weeks, and they flew their missions in the 150 AT-11 Beechcraft trainers, designated the Kansan, each armed with up to 10 practice bombs.
