Families and large groups will enjoy the three reservable group sites at Big Bend. Group sites A and B are located within the main campground along the Colorado River. Group Site C is located across SR 128 and up a small canyon offering a more secluded location. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and four-wheel drive tours in the surrounding parks and public lands. The town of Moab is approximately 30 minutes away and has dining, shopping, sports rentals, tour companies and museums.
Big Bend Campground is a great base camp for mountain biking, hiking, rafting, taking scenic tours, and exploring the area's backcountry roads. Those looking to relax enjoy sitting under the cottonwoods at the group site or on the small beach nearby.
The Big Bend group areas have fire rings with grates, picnic tables, vault toilets, shade shelters, and trash removal. Sites A and B are near the river. Site C is in a side canyon, allowing for privacy. Water, dump stations and electricity are not available. Trailer and RV parking is limited. (Multiple trailers and RVs can be accommodated at the Lone Mesa Group Sites along SR 313.) Please call the Moab Field Office for more information on vehicle limitations 435-259-2100.
Big Bend group sites A and B offer shade and access to the Colorado River. Site C is across SR 128 and in a side canyon with no river access. All three sites have spectacular canyon views.
Big Bend is near Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park. The "daily" section of the Colorado River offers half and full day river activities suitable for the whole family. The Manti-La Sal National Forest and the La Sal Mountain Loop Road provide cooler explorations during the hot summer months.

We found a secluded spot with a great view along the river.
It was pretty simple to get to this location and to pay. It is first come fist serve, however, even in the middle of the afternoon they still had sites available. Cash or check in the self serve envelopes. Decent lighting around rest rooms. Had campfire areas and easy access to the river. It's about 7-8 miles off the main drive in Moab and about 15-20 minutes from the National Parks. There are Mountain biking trails close by as well.
I hiked south rim bright and early to avoid the heat and take in the sun rise and WOW simply breath taking. The camp site we stayed at that night was clean, spacious, and rugged, just like everyone like about Texas.
Stayed in one of the back sites at this campground. Offered us a bit more seclusion. Small parking spaces at site but worth walking thru the brush to the actual clearings.
Perfect spot to stay outside of Moab! Take a dip in the Colorado River and boulder across the street at the bouldering area. Only $10 and close to town :)
It is very hard to get a camping spot in Moab, as most are not reservable. Lucky for us, someone was leaving and we were able to pull into the spot they vacated. This camp ground is beautiful and definitely well kept.
Right on the Colorado, spectacular scenery, Arches national park nearby, what's not to love?
Great easy to get to campground just outside of Moab city. Good climbing and biking near by
Campsite was perfect for us to be at because it was beautiful and calm. The arches were amazing.
There are a ton of great camping spots in Moab. I love the small dispersed camping spots close to Canyonlands. But this is the best spot that is close and has WATER! Which is key in this hot region.
