Needles Outpost Campground, Utah

We just returned home from staying at Needles Outpost Campground and it was a disaster! We had planned to stay there while our adult children were backpacking in the backcountry. They were supposed to come out on Sunday but due to some unfortunate circumstances had to come out a day early. The sites are set up for a maximum of 6 people and 2 cars. Since we ended up with 7 people and 4 cars my son-in-law talked to one of the owners and asked if there
 
    was another site available but there was not. He asked if it was possible to stay at our campsite for that one night. She said ''no problem, you're just fine.''

Her tune certainly changed the next morning when she came down
 to our site yelling insults that we had been sneaking in cars and people. We reminded her that she had said it was ok. She called us liars, sneaks, and thieves. We had observed her drinking beer in the store room during the day. She then proceeded to charge us $70 a night for a total of 4 nights for ''impact & service fees''. She then charged my daughter's credit card for the $280 and another $190. She harrassed us and then price gouged us.

We would never
 
    stay there again! In talking to the Park Ranger at the Canyonlands Visitor Center we were told that they received many complaints about her erratic yelling behavior. There were many other things that occurred but too much to write
  here. We were so insulted and humiliated by our treatment. We will NEVER stay there again and would like to warn anyone that plans to stay there to be aware that if you cross her in any way...look out! Says Pam (19-May-08)
