Beautiful spot, noisy people

This campsite was beautiful. Many amazing rock formations to see. It was awesome. The downside was the horrible people that were around. Running dirt bikes loud at 10 pm, and over all just obnoxious and loud.

Nice relaxing spot in off season

Ports potties are available, there’s no trash, and it’s close to nice trails. It’s a pretty good deal for the price of free. The roads can be a little iffy but my Jetta made it in and out numerous times bc I drove relatively carefully

Great spot close to Moab

Arrived at night but the road was Easy to find and graded well to be smooth. Drove down a little ways and found a site with a level spot. There is a lot of available places along the road and it was moderately busy while I was here November. It seems like the further you went down the less busy the…

Beautiful, Popular, Loud

Overall great boondocking spot of you can deal with a bit of ATV noise and occasional loud groups. Access to great biking trails and even Arches NP of you have enough clearance or take a mountain bike! Would absolutely stay here again.

Goose island

We loved our stay here. Amazing location. Close to town. Right on the Colorado river. Clean public bathroom. Dog friendly. Large sites with level spots. Picnic table with fire pit. No water though. All of them are great honestly. We did get a couple bars for cellphone service as well.

Great place to spend the night if you’re ok with crowds

This is the closest free place to camp from Moab. It’s a great area. Expect big RVs and trailers, and it may be difficulty to find spots in the fall and spring.

If you’re willing to drive a little further out (Klondike, dinosaur flats), you can get some more space to yourself if you prefer.…

Not sure if you can actually camp

I took the directions to coordinates and couldn’t quite find where it designated camping. We followed an off shoot of the Gemini Bridges trail and found a secluded spot that looks like it is frequently camped, but I don’t think it’s allowed. We camped anyway and didn’t have any issues and enjoyed…

BLM Moab

This is a great site for close access to Canyonlands and Arches but for smaller vehicles such as cars, the drive is rough but that may have just been my experience since it was raining

Amazing BLM Campground with tons of room to spread out

Much like everyone else has said, this is a great place to park your trailer and go visit the rest of the area. 

We spent 10 days out here and loved the ease of it. We have set up our trailer to be able to boon-dock without a generator (lithium and solar) and were able to charge our batteries…

Great place

Nice place to camp with high quality views. Cellular coverage was good and I was able to work remotely the whole day (Verizon). But there were high winds and some times my connection was spotty. Also don’t forget to buy toilet bags from Moab information center.

Good for what it's for

Nothing flashy. It has a clean bathroom a short distance away from the campground. Ground is level and has several open areas to setup tents as well as enough room to set up tables and an eating area.

Convenient desert close to all Moab has to offer

Spacious land 20 minutes from Moab with plenty of space to find a spot, or support a large group. Don't expect to be alone here, but when we were then in late fall there was plenty of space for groups to be far apart. Terrain is all desert. This is close to the Soverign MTB trail system, and a…

Great BLM camping

Nothing special but plenty of places to camp. No amenities except for occasional porta potties. Would stay again.

Ruggedly beautiful.

Quite busy when we arrived, finally finagled my way into a spot near the toilets. Really rough last couple hundred yards. Still got in with the 39' Cedar Creek.

Convenient spot very close to Arches

The spot is very easy to find and well located, very close to Arches NP. This is very crowded but there's plenty of room so you should easily find a place to park. There is also a "basic" restroom (though not super clean as you can imagine!).
