About Horsethief Group Site

The five reservable Horsethief Group Sites are ideal for smaller gatherings (10-20 people & 6 sedans/trucks/vans only---no trailers or RVs). Group Site #39 is located in the main campground and Group Sites A, B, C, D are located in the adjacent campground which is designed to accomodate tent and van campers only. Horsethief Campground is ideal for those wishing to be close to The Island in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. The area also offers outdoor enthusiasts many options for hiking, mountain & road biking and four-wheel drive tours. The town of Moab is 25 minutes away and has dining, shopping, sports rentals, tour companies and museums.

Facilities

The group areas have shade shelters, picnic tables, a fire rings with grate and nearby vault toilet.

Peaceful..

I've camped here about 3-4 times. It's a great place to camp when you ride your bike around the White Rim trail in one day. the cliffs are amazing and the views are breathtaking. There isn't anything special, there are some bathrooms but other than that its good ol camping.
