Good Vibes, Great Location

The camping sites are all a decent size, and the trees and brush add some shade and privacy between sites. The canyon provides shade for the campground for at least two and a half hours after sunrise. Each site has space for at least two parking spots.

Access to the Colorado River is within walking distance of the campsite. People were swimming to the sandbar across the river. Corona Arch trailhead is right across the highway. More trailheads and petroglyphs nearby. A short drive from Moab and the Parks.

Only downside was the noise from the highway, but it isn’t very busy. There’s practically no nighttime traffic.

Shady, close to town, iffy bathrooms

The spot itself was shady and people around were nice and respectful. Conveniently located close to town (about 5 a minute walk from Main Street). The bathrooms were not kept up too well and you’ll definitely want bug spray.

Gress ast place

Will be back again. It was so peaceful

God’s Country

I love this place. Cold in morning but got nice by lunch time.

Stunning

It was very windy while we were here so the camp shelter in each site was a life saver. The bathrooms were very clean and the dish washing station was a huge perk. This campground is very exposed so be prepared for it to be cold and windy. We unfortunately made the mistake of only checking the weather in Moab and didn’t pack enough warm clothes! Very little cell service. About a 2 min drive to the overlook. The park fee is included in your campground reservation cost. Overall it’s a beautiful campground and I’d highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore deadhorse.

Memorial weekend @ slickrock

We booked this at the last min wanting to get out of town for memorial weekend. This was the absolute only thing I could find. I’m usually not one for RV parks, but all non private campgrounds were still closed due to covid. I wasn’t sure what to expect. The facility was at about 50% capacity due to covid/social distancing rules. The staff was super friendly. They had spent most of the quarantine remodeling the bathrooms and they were wonderfully done and spotlessly clean. This was the highlight of our stay. Unfortunately they hadn’t finished all the quarantine projects that had originally planned. This resulted in a very messy, unmarked, un-shaded, and overly crowded tent camping area. Since the sites were unmarked, we came back to tents pitched all over the place, even in the road passing through this part of the campground. It was an unorganized mess. But overall we were just happy to be out and recreating in such a beautiful place. Oh and the views are pretty good from this RV park as well.

No shade

Fire pit, picnic table, office with a general store, bathroom and shower facilities.

Pretty much just an empty patch of dirt

EXCELLENT stargazing along the White Rim trail. There was a vault toilet available that smelled as though about 40 feral cats had painted the walls with urine, but it did the job.

A little tough to find, but worth it

The second stop when we did the White Rim trail, it was pretty much a minimally marked site with a vault toilet a bit of a walk away. We brought our camp stove for cooking, and enjoyed a quiet evening in the tree shade. BEAUTIFUL stargazing!

We were lucky they had an open site

We just drove up and managed to land an amazing site along a giant rock face. No picnic table available, however there was a fire pit. Situated along the Colorado River, it was the perfect spot to call home while we explored Arches and the Canyonlands. Not too far from Potash Road (and the White Rim trail!), if you’re down to do a little overlanding.
