Leeds RV Park is closest to what I had imagined RV parks to be like prior to our actual experience with RV parks. It is a smallish rural site with a country feel that offers the basic services you expect and not a lot more. For me, the highlight is that their wireless internet actually works most of the time, a true rarity so far in our travels.

Leeds RV park is located in Southern Utah in the town of Leeds, a place that consists mostly of a few small farms, a good number of lovely homes, and a goodly number of RV parks. It has a cafe, a post office, a general store, and not much else in the commercial arena. It is not a long drive north or south to strip malls and Zion National Park is close at hand which is why we are here.
Let’s talk internet! Nearly every park claims to have free wireless internet. Generally, it is almost always overloaded and next to useless as a result. Leeds RV is a small park however and as a result, the wireless here works pretty well most of the time, even inside our trailer near the edge of the park. True, from around 7pm to 11pm it can get sketchy as more folks jump on, but by comparison to other parks, Leeds RV is wireless heaven.
The environs of the park are nice, but not spectacular. Trees cover most of the parking spots giving you a touch of privacy and a good bit of shade. The back of the park abuts an attractive rocky cliff and trails from the park lead to areas you can explore. The owners have done a decent job creating attractive lawns and gardens on the ground. Nothing spectacular bit it feels like a nice country home.
The bathrooms are also a big plus. There are only two at this time (others are apparently being renovated) but they are private bathrooms with full showers, really nice compared to the usual group style bathrooms at most parks. Since it is a small park I haven’t found them crowded or overused and they are kept sparkling clean.
If you like cats, you are in luck, there are a number that lurk around the grounds. It’s not clear if they are neighborhood cats or belong to someone at the park. It’s odd because the park rules require all pets to be on a leash or in an enclosure. If you don’t like cats, this could be a problem for you.
I’ve read reviews of the place where the chief complaint was the owners/hosts. While we didn’t find them especially friendly, neither did we find them hostile in any way. We were disappointed they didn’t accept mail deliveries for residents, but each site is going to decide what services they offer so there is nothing rude about that.
The price here is on the high side, but not unusual for the area as it is near very popular national parks. They don’t take passport America, which tends to give a great discount, but they are a Good Sam member and accept Escape RV club, which we joined specifically to get the discount here. Our two week stay paid for the membership.
