You may be asking ‘What do we bring’ for a vacation at Bullion Creekside Retreat. We have put the following list together to jog your memory to the necessities and possibilities. You can buy almost anything you forget or can’t bring on the airplane at the convenience store in Marysvale or at the Super Walmart in nearby Richfield.

· You really don’t need all the above to have a great atv excursion if you are flying in and renting ATVs. Helmets can be rented with the ATVs. Helmets are not legally required for adults 18 or over but recommended. If you don’t have an extra fuel tank or ice box, we’ll loan you one.

RVs are required to have their own on-board bathroom. There are not external bathroom facilities available. RV spaces do have water, sewer and power hookups. For local TV reception in Marysvale some RVs need an antenna amplifier. Most late model RVs have an amplifier built in to their system but you have to enable it. You may want to bring some firewood for the firepits. Don’t forget to bring charcoal lighter fluid to help start your campfire.

First of all we want to thank you for your hospitality. Your place is beautiful and both of you are wonderful people. We came to Utah for the first time this year and will definitely be back—to stay with you. Excellent accommodations and wonderful recommendations for trail riding. We ride every year in Colorado and we were all challenged this trip on the Paiute Trail. We all smile the whole way. I am an internet junkie and will give you an awesome review on Trip Advisor. Great meeting you both ! Keep up the good work ! Your place is awesome ! Thank you again from San Angelo, Texas.
