Miguel's. $3 a night per person, climber only camping, right next to some amazing pizza and a nice gear shop. Just spent a week there for the second year in a row, always a good time.

Well it can be, but there's going to be room. There's a ton of camping space available.

Land of Arches if you want to get away from the party. I think its $5 a night. There is plenty of camping, you won't have trouble finding a place.

LOTA is also getting crowded FYI. They have some undeveloped camping below the ridge if you really want to avoid crowds. Lago Linda's Hideaway is the quietest commercial campground in the gorge

If you're planning on climbing a bunch in the South (especially PMRP), I recommend camping at Lago Linda's. It's a lot closer, maybe ~10mins from the parking lot. They charge $6 for camping now, but that includes hot showers.
