Amazing Yurt Stay!

Can't wait to go back!  Moenkopi yurts are in the perfect setting for fantastic views, star gazing!  Each yurt sleeps six and is very close to trails.  Rest rooms are conveniently located.  This is the true glamping experience.

Windgate loop #34

Very clean site! Sturdy , 2 walled shelter with picnic table, nice fire pit. Vault toilets at parking lot (we were the first walk-in) about 30 yards away. The morning sun is super hot and bright so you may want a shade of some sort. The shelter blocks the evening sun. The camp hosts are super friendly. A sink with water for dish washing and flushing toilets are right at the loop entrance. Bring lots of water and ice in summer, it’s HOT! The nights were cool but once the sun came up it got hot! We visited Moab , Canyonlands, and Arches. Get to Arches at sunrise. Dead horse point is beautiful, go in the early am or evening.

Great Arches/ Canyonlands camp

Best campground I’ve ever been to. I would actually prefer the campground to Arches on many days. Fire pits, electricity. Best off if you have A/C or some way to keep cool. It gets hot during the day. It cools down enough at night, but pretty late. There were awesome trails all along the rim of a canyon with cairns to tell you where the trail was. This campground was so amazing that my kids were not really that interested at the Grand Canyon. They could walk safely along the rim without crowds. It’s at the edge outside of Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands. It looked like it would have been a good base for 4WD trips, too. I cannot put I to words how awesome this was. Really could have just moved in and stayed there.

Dead horse point state park, July, 2019

Why anyone visiting arches and canyonland/Moab would choose to stay here is beyond me! I booked this campground based on raving reviews and recommendations. First this campground is double the price of campgrounds in town that have showers, pools, WiFi, all amenities, dead horse has no showers, as a tent camper you are not allowed to park next to your site, supposedly you get a 5.00 credit for this inconvenience. The site and park are nice and clean, with beautiful views. The sites have a two sided structure that houses the picnic table. Beware of the sand and mosquitoes. I included a picture of the yurts they rent, we didn’t stay in those, we tent camped. Some people said it was close to Moab, it’s about 45 minutes away from Moab and arches!

Fabulously Close to Moab

This campsite was the perfect spot to rest in between visits to Canyonlands NP and Arches NP, as well as Moab, UT. It only had community water and no showers, so that was slightly inconvenient, but the location was perfect.

Great site and great views!

Extremely close to canyonlands national park if you don’t get a site inside of the park. Each site has its own little hut and picnic table at it. They offer both electric and non electric sites. All in all a great experience. Would recommend to anyone heading out to canyonlands.

Awesome Campground

This campground/park is awesome!  The campground is well spaced out and has nice pads for tents.  It also has nice covered picnic tables.  The bathrooms have full plumbing and there is an area to wash any dishes you may have.

Couldn’t ask for a cooler location.  The campground is right on the edge of a canyon and a small drive/walk will take you to spectacular views.

Kayenta Campground: A Desert Oasis

While this was a bit more expensive ($43) than we are accustomed to paying for a campsite, we opted to stay here due to the close proximity to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. That said, after spending a night in the campground and exploring the park the following day, we felt it was well-worth the cost. 

Our campsite was private and had its own picnic table and shelter, which included a light and lockable cupboard for food and other items. Each campsite has a fire pit and grill, though we used neither due to the burning ban. The bathrooms were very clean. Kayenta has some spectacular views, especially at sunset. Overall, five stars from us!

Whoa, sick views.

Great place to stay if near Canyonlands NP or just in general. Great view, great spot.

Beautiful views, small campground w/ privacy

Book in advance as it fills up quickly! Dead Horse Point is a beautiful state park that looks like a smaller version of the Grand Canyon. The campground is small but there is some privacy between sites. We camped in our tent but saw RV's and campers there. There was a picnic table under a roof so we had some shelter when it rained.
