Ended up here after hours of searching for a campsite. We’re car camping so we prefer a pretty view, but it isn’t necessary. This place ended up being our IDEAL spot. Smelly toilet- no showers or running water. But great fire pits and wonderful neighbors. Loved it here. Great for night photography!
7miles up the Colorado River from the main road. Campground is kept clean, bathrooms we're stocked. We had site #3, seemed like one of the better spots. Decent amount of shade. A lot of brush and smaller trees make up the campsite. If your looking for a spot try and get it when people leave around 8 or 9am. The sound of the river at night was nice and relaxing. The noise from the road didn't bother us too much. We brought tubes but the river was moving a bit too fast. Worth the 20 bucks, wouldn't have paid more.
The drive up to the campsite is a little over 2 miles up and around the side of a red rock mountain! So beautiful, however our Escape couldn’t handle the rocky roads and we were nervous about driving on such a harsh road in the dark mostly bc it’s on the side of a cliff…. so we had to turn around before we made it all the way up :( In the picture of the mountain, you can see the little road traveling up to the left!
Just reinforcing the last guys’ review and I don’t have much to add. Met one of the caretakers and he was super friendly and helpful. We also had to contact them two days before arriving and they provided great customer service. Facilities are well kept and there is laundry and a sink outside the shower house to wash dishes. Also tent sites have potable water spigots. I like the tent set up where you can camp up top or down below. We tent in the bed of our truck and were able to park and have a picnic table and fire ring right next to us.
Covid precautions taken seriously here and in all of Moab which makes us feel more comfortable.
Pack Creek Campground is located in south Moab, in an area that is a mix of new construction infill and old Moab funkiness.
I stayed in one of the creekside tent spots, which are very nice and also very adaptable. There is an area in each one large enough for a tent, with a picnic table and a grill, However, many people choose to go down the rock steps to the creekside area, which is more private and little more separated from the RV park. The lower areas do not have a grill or fire ring due to the low tree canopy, but each has a picnic table where you can set up and use a camp stove. Being here really made it seem like I was not in an urban RV park.
The upper level tent sites are are separated by wooden fencing which allows for separation from neighbors.
At this time (September 2020) there are a number of Covid-related measures in place. Grand County remains under a mask mandate, and wearing of masks is being strongly encouraged when using common areas of the campground, especially the restrooms/shower areas. The tent area is being utilized at half capacity, and those in RVs using the park as a long-term base are required to be self-contained, without access to the restrooms.
The park is very clean, and the manager is on site and available whenever needed. Restrooms and showers are immaculate and well stocked.
Despite being somewhat off the main highway, there is still a certain amount of highway noise at night, something which is pretty unavoidable anywhere in Moab due to the whole place being in a canyon. Light sleepers may want earplugs.
Pack Creek Campground is not within walking distance of downtown Moab, so if you are planning to spend time downtown understand that you will need to drive.
Very nice spot, easy to find. The area was full each night we were there, after securing it from a group leaving around 10am. It sits right on the Colorado river, making for pleasant sights and sounds. It’s located in a great spot to access Arches, Canyonlands, and Moab. Oh, and the night time sky is wild. Timing is everything in getting a spot, but it seems that early morning and early afternoon are your best bet.
Almost everything was booked up the day we tried to stay here, but there were some tent sites available for walk ins. Sites were pretty densely packed, but the beautiful views and uniqueness of each site were the highlights. Most sites seemed best suited for tent camping/lower impact setups, though we did see a handful of sites that accommodated RVs. About half were reservable ahead of time, with one loop reserved for walk ins.
This $20/night BLM campground has a nice setup with good spacing between the sites, great views, and restrooms and garbage spread decently across the campground so no one area is overused/busy or annoying to the surrounding sites. We arrived pretty late in the day and so ended up fairly close to a restroom and there were no issues (even with our always on alert dogs who like to announce any intruding forces they can sense are invading their territory).
We were setting up during golden hour and the sunset was amazing. The night sky even more so—completely clear and gorgeous views of all the constellations.
It was a pretty quiet campground, even being almost full (we stayed on a Tuesday night, though, so could imagine it being louder on the weekend). The campground was arranged in two different areas, a tent only side and an RV/tent side with sites that all had good, fairly flat parking pads for RVs, as well as tent pad, fire pit, and picnic table. We still needed to do little leveling of our small RV, but not too bad.
Usually, we tend to avoid campgrounds in favor of dispersed camping, but we were tired, we needed a site with quick access to Canyonlands in the morning and honestly just didn’t feel like driving around searching as it was getting dark. We’d definitely stay again in similar circumstances, but would probably check out the dispersed camping in the area if we had more time to devote.
