Buckhorn RV Park and Resort

Buckhorn RV Park and Resort

Buckhorn RV Park and Resort is a campground that contains various forms of lodging, such as RV sites, cabins, and teepees. Situated on the north end of Huntington, Utah, the property has been in operation since 2021 under the ownership of Wayne Neilson, a local Huntington resident. Many people who have visited the RV park have noted its wide range of amenities and features, including things such as batting cages, pickleball courts, coin-operated laundry, park-wide Wi-Fi access, an outdoor ping pong table, and facilities for playing horseshoes and cornhole. Nearly all of the RV sites are pull-through, and each one is equipped with full hook-ups in addition to picnic tables and fire pits. The three teepees at Buckhorn RV Park and Resort have beds, nightstands, and access to electricity. 


Located in Huntington, Utah, the Buckhorn RV Park and Resort is a lodging business with varying unit types in a relatively rural setting. More specifically, the RV park can be found just outside the north end of town, still within the formal city limits. Despite this, park management explains that "it's pretty rural out here in Huntington," meaning that the town is small enough to allow visitors some seclusion and privacy. 

Within the park, guests have the option of four main types of lodging: RV sites, cabins, teepees, and dry camping areas. Additionally—and regardless of unit type—people have access to property-wide features such as a shower house, coin-operated laundry, Wi-Fi access (described by the park as "high-speed"), and a few dog-run areas. Providing an abundance of on-site activities is one of the establishment's biggest goals, as well as the primary method that they attempt to set themselves apart from other businesses in the industry. As such, amenities such as batting cages, pickleball courts, horseshoe game sites, cornhole supplies, an outdoor foosball table, and an outdoor ping-pong table are all accessible by park guests. Buckhorn RV Park and Resort intends to expand this list of on-site attractions by constructing a mini-golf course sometime in the future. 

Regarding the RV sites that comprise the largest proportion of the park's occupancy, there is little variation from unit to unit. Of the 27 total RV spaces, 23 are classified as "pull-through," with only 4 falling into the category of "back-in." Each site comes equipped with full hookups, as well as the option between 30 and 50 amp electricity. A small picnic table and fire pit are included at each site for small outdoor gatherings and/or meals. Finally, one manager of the park describes the sites as "very spacious" in comparison to others that he has seen. 

The few teepees on the premises include a bed, nightstand, and electricity. The cabins, on the other hand, contain a queen-sized bed, a bathroom (with shower), and a small kitchen that is made up of "everything you would need except for a dishwasher," as explained by Cole—one of the park's managers. In other words, the cabins' kitchens have microwaves, refrigerators, ovens, stoves, and sinks. A table, in addition to a television and a pull-out bed, is also included in each cabin. It should be noted that there are no significant differences between the 13 cabins at Buckhorn RV Park and Resort.

Many of the people who are visiting the Huntington area—and the county as a whole—are there to experience the various outdoor recreational activities offered nearby. Cole highlights the San Rafael Swell, which is home to a number of unique rock formations, pictographs, and petroglyphs. These latter two features in the swell are evidence of early Native American cultures. He also recommends a few local restaurants, namely Ponderosa Grill, Lamy's Mexican Grill, and B K's Stop-N-Shop. All three of these dining options are within a two-minute drive of Buckhorn RV Park and Resort. 


Cole, who helps manage Buckhorn RV Park and Resort, explains that their establishment does not put on events of its own. However, two main features nearby are often putting on events or competitions of some kind, which helps to draw in a number of visitors each year. Four baseball fields are situated directly north of the property, so it is common for families to stay at the campground while tournaments or classic sports games take place at the fields. The other defining cultural draw in the area is the Huntington Fairgrounds, across the street toward the west, which hosts rodeos and other events. 

Apart from event attendees, many of the people who stay at the RV park are construction workers. The county often has a few projects going on, meaning that Buckhorn RV Park and Resort's long-term clientele, in particular, is comprised of contractors and other people assisting in some capacity or another. Open year-round, the campground sees its highest proportions of occupancy from Memorial Day to Labor Day. 

Though Buckhorn RV Park and Resort has been in operation for just over a year, they have already accumulated a number of guest reviews. One person, speaking of their recent trip to the establishment, explained that "They had everything ready and perfectly clean for us, and they had the cabin full of everything you could possibly need. I loved all the game areas they had for us to utilize. We had so much fun!" Another guest stated, "We visited for a baseball tournament, which was right next to the RV park. Our boys loved the giant lawn in the middle of the property and wore it out playing whiffle ball after games. One of the nights they were playing, the lawn was being mowed, and rather than kicking the boys off, the maintenance worker mowed a small diamond and pitching mound into the long grass for their game." 

These reviews help to emphasize two of the biggest goals that staff have for the property, namely to provide quality customer service and clean facilities. Cole has noticed that two of the things that guests are "quickest to complain about RV parks in general" are the hospitality and cleanliness of the business. He, along with others at the campground, appreciates receiving feedback of any kind from patrons so that they can adjust the park's management in the future if necessary. 

Buckhorn RV Park and Resort has a few notable policies that guests are expected to adhere to during their stay. Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the park, and there are designated quiet hours that last from 10 PM to 8 AM every day. Pets are allowed on-site and assisted by means of the dog-run trails that are present in the campground. The establishment does ask that people inform them if they are bringing a pet to a cabin or teepee, though this is simply to know when extra cleaning should occur in that unit after a reservation has concluded. Overall, park managers hope that people "have fun and respect others and their space." 


Buckhorn RV Park and Resort has only been in operation for just over a year, having been opened under the ownership of local Huntington resident Wayne Neilson in May of 2021. Wayne grew up in Huntington and owned a concrete/asphalt business for many years. His company helped to provide a sizable amount of road construction for the county, allowing him to meet many people. 

"He felt a desire to give back to the community and county," says Cole, who helps to manage the RV park. "He also wanted to create something that would bring people to the 'great area' where he lives." Wayne continues to live in Huntington, Utah, though not at the campground itself. 

In the future, it is planned for a mini-golf course to be added to the RV park's list of available activities. Further expansion, including the addition of more cabins and RV spaces, is another likely development, considering that the establishment already owns some nearby land that could be used for the venture.
