We camped from April 12th-14th and had plenty of spots to choose from after coming in at 3:10pm—which was awesome considering it was the first weekend of Jeep week! It wasn’t too hot and it had just rained so all the flowers and plants were thriving. Perfect time to go. 20 bucks a night, not too bad, so bring cash. Picked a spot up against a beautiful, red rock pile and set up camp. Plenty of space between you and your neighbors, but keep in mind, there is absolutely no tree coverage (no privacy and no shade). By the time we went to bed, the campground was full and sound carries, so be mindful of your neighbors when you’re coming in late. Each campsite gets a picnic table and fire pit, but there’s no water. Decent bathroom—open air so you can see the stars when you dump at night. Awesome.
We got to Moab and we’re not able to find any camping spots. It was battle trying to find something. My brothers friend recommended going down the canyon west of Moab. We decided to do that on a whim and ended up at this amazing camping site. We got there just en time for sunset and the sunrise was breathtaking. The sun hit the red rock and created a beautiful warm red to contrast the morning blue sky. There’s bathrooms, and little camp sites all along this valley. Beautiful area.
We arrived in Moab late in the afternoon with no plans on where to sleep. After a brew and a meal in town we made our way out Kane Creek Blvd along the Colorado River. A dirt road, very scenic, there are many places to camp along the way. This particular site was about 10 miles from where we turned on Hwy 191. I know this review says "Group Site", but I believe there are several Ledge Camping areas. Seems to me this one was "D". We just kept going down the road looking for "the one". Boy, did we find it! Gorgeous evening, breathtaking sunset, amazing stars.
The site we pulled into was against a bluff so that made for a good wind break. The wind does pick up as the sun goes down. We had a picnic table and fire pit with a grate. We were close to the bathroom, but not downwind. This was coolest open air vault design I have ever seen. Super clean but the smell was the worst I have ever encountered. Like, the sour smell that lingers in your nose for a long time after. You start to think that maybe you smell like that now.
No amenities, other than what's at your site and the vault. Bring your water. I would also imagine in the heat of summer, it would be pretty harsh. There is no tree cover, no shade. We did some fun exploring right there around the campground. Lots of rock scrambling, higher viewpoints, and access to the creek way below. It was a perfect spot for shoulder season and I will be back next time I venture to Moab.
We camped at Tier 1, site 27 of the Ledge Campground system. There are about 6 different campgrounds within this area called Ledge: Tier 1,2,3,etc. The first has over thirty sites and are all well spaced with nice picnic tables and fire areas. Tier two is the largest with over 40 sites and the rest are smaller, all under 10 sites. We tent camped with two tents and there was adequate level space as well as a area large enough for a camper if you have one. There are few trees in ther area so bring something to provide cover/shade. The cliffs surrounding the campground are spectacular!
We camped here during Jeep Week, so this was a popular destination for the jeeping crowd, but the campground was not noisy.
The toilets look a bit strange from the outside but were quite clean and decent. Garbage dumpsters are provided.
Cost is $15 per night. Only 4 stars, wish there were more trees.
