Great hiking from campsite

Beautiful campsite, well maintained. Quiet and dark, bring head lamps. Great hiking from campsight. Everything was clean and well kept up.

One of the nicest State Park campgrounds around

We stayed here while visit Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. This setup is very nice with a great covered picnic table and grill, with a fire ring right next to it. Had a locker for supplies and a nice big pad for our tent. The bath facilities are extremely clean and the only thing missing is showers. The visitors center was great and staff was super friendly. The park itself is beautiful, and the sunsets and being out of Moab to see the Milkyway at night was amazing.

Beautiful Views

Dead Horse Point State Park has two clean campgrounds to choose from -Kayenta and Wingate. Neither one has necessarily had better views than the other one but we stayed in Kayenta. Shorts walks from either one will get you on the trail to many different lookout points and ultimately to Dead Horse Point, a view that overlooks the Colorado River. We watched the sunset from there. We didn’t use the facilities so can’t comment on those.

Walk In Tent sites were in a great location but you could smell the toilet

We stayed at the Wingate campground in Dead Horse Point State Park. We loved the proximity to the Rim Trail and the Schafer Canyon, minutes of waking from our walk-in tentsite, but that was often overshadowed by the stench of the vault toilets closest to those walk in sites. all the other areas of the campground had a flush toilet facility but our closest one emitted a smell that sometimes permeated our site and always stunk while we were at the car right next to it. Once you got inside the toilet stall, the smell was no longer an issue, but outside it was awful. The campground is accessible with a fairly short drive to Arches National Park.

Clean, quiet, beautiful

We stayed at Dead Horse Point August 24 & 25, 2019 this year. Check in was very easy. When we arrived the camp site was clean and ready for us. The bathrooms were clean.

 There was fire wood available for sale but it was so hot we did not really need a fire.

Each campsite has a covered shelter with a table and a lockable cabinet.

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.
