We came to Moab with the hope of camping inside Arches National Park. This proved to be difficult as we found that all of the campsites we were looking at were non-reservable and filled up extremely fast. We ended up ay Jaycee and it was the perfect solution. The site is just off the side of the road but we didn't find the noise of cars driving by to be disturbing. The campsite is located right below massive rock formations so the scenery was great and we even found a little trail that leads to the rocks behind the campsite.
We stayed here two nights and my main complaints are 1) that there is no water available so we had to fill up in town and 2) The bathroom is a pit toilet (but this isn't uncommon for campsites).
The people here were friendly and the site ranger was present throughout the day making sure that everything was running smoothly.
Another perk is that Jaycee is very close to both Corona Arch and Arches NP so we had easy access to both. The site is also very close to some local swimming holes, we spent one afternoon cooling off at the Mill Creek swimming hole. The other recreational activity that Jaycee is extremely close to is Wall Street, a very popular climbing spot. We didn't partake in any climbing, but drove by many climbers just down the road from the site.
our walk in camping spot was beautiful. The only thing that bothered us was the constant sound of 4×4 vehicles traveling the trails that went around the camp sites.
My partner and I stayed here for a night on our way out to California and absolutely loved it.
The campground is $15/night, and comes with a reasonable amount of space per campsite with a fire pit and picnic table. There's seven sites so you are close by other campers, but everyone was quiet and respectful. There's also a trash can and bathroom on site but no water.
For climbers, this is a perfect place to stay. It's a short drive or bike ride from Wall Street, a popular area to climb. It's also a short drive from Arches NP. If you plan to stay here, I highly recommend getting in early. It's all first come first serve, and the sites fill up pretty fast.
