Save your money

I wasn't real thrilled to pay $20 for camping, but knew I was signing up for that.  But the $8 service fee.  Well, that's just infuriating.  I won't make that mistake again.

Small tight CG

Small tight CG. Best suited to tenters and van/ truck campers. A couple side spots for a TT but narrow access road is post cabled on both sides and not enough form for two TTs or RVs to pass. Note that this area is now fee reservation only and has had sig improvements to the roads, sites, signage and toilets. However...NO water, NO trash dumpsters and NO RV dump. $20/$10 senior and an $8 reservation fee. 7 day camping limit. Cell signal is very good to excellent. Lots of marked trails and expect this area to be busy on weekends. Lots of I70 traffic noise depending on your site.

Chill Spot

Jouflas is a chill spot that I've now been to twice. The space was maybe 80% full this time as opposed to me having one neighbor last time. Otherwise somewhat secluded, and with a toilet. Pack in/out, but quite nice amenities for where it is. Even has tent pads (that I didn't use.) Have fun!

Lovely {free!} dry campground

We stayed here twice, on our way to and from Moab. Area is big and open, popular with ATVs and mountain bikers. Campground was quite busy while we were here in May {we actually woke up one morning to a couple staying in our site with us!!} No water or trash but pit toilets that are very clean. All sites are pretty large and have fire rings and a picnic table but very little shade to be found. Most are not super level but are right on a gravel loop. Most everyone was quiet and respectful. Sites are free and signs indicate you can stay for 7 days at a time. Self register at the sign post on the right as you enter the Rabbit Valley area.

Easy access, clean, good cell service

Great spots close to the highway but it's not noisy. Stayed here on a Thursday and March and there were quite a few spots open.

Great camp spot!

Great camping area, about a mile off the interstate 70. dirt road to camp spots with limited camping spots available. One toilet no water. I stopped here for the night and definitely would stop by here again.

Rough road, but amazing spot

I would highly recommend lots of water in this desert climate, and bring tarp for shade during the day. It’s a bit breezy due to the topography, but hey it’s free!

Open Views, 4x4 Playground

Parking for the campsites is limited to just off of the road. This is good for preserving nature but means parking got very tight on the weekend. I enjoyed the open views and the ridge to the East. Campsite had a fire ring, tent, and a single vault bathroom (typical). This seemed to be a pretty good base camp for mountain bikers and people with 4x4 toys. Bring your own shade because there is none and it gets hot here (102F in April). Next time I am here, I would like to continue down the road and see what 4x4 camping is further down.

Great Place to Stay!

Right off I-70 this place is great for people that don’t need all the amenities that a proper campground offers. There is a bathroom with a toilet pit, fire pits, tent pads, and picnic tables so by no means are you roughing it. But there is no running water or electricity so be prepared if you are in need of both! 10/10 would recommend! Did I mention it was free?!

Know what to expect

♿️ pit toilet ADA accessible and labeled. The pull in campsites seem accessible. Other sites may or may not be easy. ⭐️No highway noise. ⭐️tent pads ⭐️tables ⭐️fire pits ⭐️easy roadside parking

✔️pit toilet was maintained and supplied

➖bring your own shade ➖not landscaped

📶 cell service 🚯 pack it in, pack it out

It was great because other reviews let me know what to expect. Each site has a concrete picnic table, steel and concrete fire pit with lift off grate and a sandbox style tent pad. Sites are well marked. Only a few sites are set up as group sites. About 3 spots where you can pull up right to you site. Otherwise you are looking at 20-50 feet from the edge of road to site. I felt like the sites were close without being on top of each other.

Great for Biking, Not much Else

If you’re a biker or have an ATV, this is your place! If you don’t... probably go somewhere else. We rolled in on a Thursday night, all the spaces were full, thankfully there’s a large parking lot near the entrance we boondocked there for the night, by Friday morning we were able to snag a spot as we watched people leave. TONS of cars rolled through all weekend looking for a space. There’s not much shade, there’s no great hiking trails. The campsite was clean and the campsites were plenty spaced out.

The camping spaces were off-road but accessible by us and our small trailer, but I honestly can’t say I’d do that road again. Larger campers would be probably doable, but pretty hard.

Convenient, Spacious and Gorgeous Views

About a mile off of I-70, Jouflas Campground is one of the first developed campgrounds you'll come across. We arrived on a Thursday evening in the spring and managed to secure two sites for a large group. Every site has a tent pad, picnic table and fire ring and ample parking. It's also FREE! The sunset golden hour views are incredible from the sites closest to the edge of the knoll on which it sits. We will be returning as it was a wonderful find.
