Remote & Perfect

This was our first time camping here despite going to Moab on a pretty regular basis. We wanted to camp close to Fisher Towers and get away from the camping chaos of Potash Rd on Jeeper Weekend. This was a bit off the beaten path and was about 45 mins from the center of Moab. The location was amazing with stunning views of Fisher Towers, practically no car/traffic noise since it’s a long dirt road leading up to the campground, and provided an authentic desert experience. One pit toilet and no running water/hookups/amenities here, very primitive. One loop with probably 20 spots; surprisingly it filled up by early evening but it was Jeeper Weekend. Definitely recommend if you want to try another Moab campground away from the popular spots!
