Oowah Lake Campground sits at 8800 ft. elevation in the spectacular La Sal mountains. There are 11 tent-only first come/ first serve campsites next to the small but scenic Oowah Lake. Trailhead access from the campground includes the Clarks Lake, Boren Mesa, Moonlight Meadows, and Warner Lake trails. Hike a short distance for spectacular vistas of the Canyonlands region. There is also a day-use area with three large picnic tables.
We did a family trip down to Moab and decided to explore the La Sal mountain range and ended up at Oowah lake. It’s beautiful up there. The Lake is peaceful, great camping spot, and toilets with running water. It has a hole that goes up the west mountain and the view up there is amazing. We were in heaven for the short time we were there.
Its only 5$ a night. It is not hot but not to cold. This is where I go to get out of the heat of Moab. Its not crowded.
Ran trails for three days around Moab. It was worth the 1/2 hour drive to this wooded paradise to get out of the dust, dirt, heat and wind of desert campsites!
