We departed Salt Lake City and as we headed south along I-15 we could clearly see the Bingham Canyon Mine which is the largest man-made excavation in the world. You can’t miss it if the weather is clear it is so big. And then further south we took Hwy 20 east about 20 miles to Hwy 89 to get to Panguitch. Hwy 20 is not my husband’s favorite road to drive due to the steep grades and sharp curves. But it is much easier in our new smaller rig (26′) than it was in our 40′ diesel pusher!!
Panguitch is a small, quaint town along Hwy 89 at about 6,600 ft elevation and close to Panguitch Lake which offers campgrounds and lots of rainbow trout.
The entrance to the Panguitch KOA is just south of town with easy access.
RV Park: Panguitch KOA
Location: Panguitch, Utah
Comments: A quiet, peaceful location about 30 minutes from Bryce National Park. It was perfect for us for an overnight spot.
The KOA is a small RV park with a pool, a pet area, a few cabins, a tenting area, and some nice patio sites.
For us it was just an overnight and it did the trick. We wanted electric since it was very hot so a high elevation and some a/c did the trick!
