4 Reviews of Drinks Canyon Campground
Convenient spot

Nice spot on the Colorado river. Easy to get to and out of to hit up arches in the morning. Fire ring and picnic bench on all the sites. close to the road but after night fall it’s quiet.

Nice Spot

We had to wake up early and arrive by 10am midweek in order to secure this site in September.  It was super busy in MOAB!  It was just a 10 minute drive to town, if traffic wasn't at a standstill due to major construction.  Site was clean.  Fire pit hadn't been cleaned of ash in a long time but other than that, it was nice.  Bathrooms were clean.  Awesome to swim in the Colorado river, there is a beach just a short walk away.

Private beach

Perfect little camping spot located right off of the road small little trails leading down to the water and a nice little private beach where you can relax and tan and swim in the river. Perfect little spot

Empty campground while other where full

Upper Drinks campground was a surprise campground find. Located next to Middle Drinks Campground this 4 site campground was empty, while Middle Drinks was full. Middle Drinks has no sign along the highway indicating the campground which may be the reason we found it empty. Sitting between the Colorado river and the highway just like the other campgrounds in the canyon. It was nice having the campground to our selves when all the other campgrounds were full or nearly full. Great views of the Colorado River and its red rock walls. Sites are a bit on the small side. This campground has an out house, but it is not your standard vault toilet, This outhouse has no roof, it is a wooden structure with walls may be 5½ feet tall and no door. Their is a chain you place across the entrance to indicate it is in use, see the pictures. But you will have the best view ever while using this outhouse.  If you are uneasy with using this open outhouse you could take a 10 minute walk over to Middle Drinks campground and use the standard vault toilet. All four of the sites have a picnic table and metal fire ring. No water or trash service at this campground so be sure to load up with water in Moab, campground information sign tells you where the nearest dumpsters are for dumping your trash. So if you are having a hard time finding a campsite in the area, search out Upper Drinks Campground, just look for a turn off just after the large BLM sign for the turn to Middle Drinks Campground, you might just find a campground with no one in it like we did.
