Right off the Road

It’s a bit more primitive compared to Jaycee Park campground further north, but it was all but deserted and I could park my motorcycle next to the tent. Nice view across the river. Composting toilets and water.

Can't beat this location!

Well maintained and simple campground right off Potash Road in Moab. Ideal location for the adventurer! Located just beyond the famous Wall Street climbing routes, this was a great use camp for our weekend of climbing. The Colorado River is just across the road which is ideal for an afternoon dip. There are also really cool Petroglyphs on the canyon wall just down the street! 

We only stayed here one night, got in late and left pretty early the next morning. Overall the location was the best part of this campsite. Had a nice fire pit with a grill, picnic table, flat place for our tent, and parking for our car so it met all of our basic needs! Also was super clean (no trash to be seen!) and you can't beat the views of the surrounding canyon and river. Would stay here again for sure.

Be sure to make reservations though! We got really lucky with finding our spot last minute, apparently the rest of the campground was reserved all weekend.

First to Review
Along the Colorado with great climbing nearby

Perfect spot for accessing all of the Wall Street climbing area! Every single route can be reached from this campground with the longest approach being maybe a mile but that's nothing for climbers right!? If you don't feel like walking that far for a climb then ~70% of the routes can be reached within a half mile and there's even a couple routes right in the campground proper! There are pit toilets and water is usually available if there isn't a severe drought going on.

From this campground you can easily drive to and hike Corona and Bowtie arch and hike up to Jug Handle arch if the view from the road isn't good enough. Each of the trailheads for these arches are a little further west on the road. If you keep going past the Potash plant you will eventually pass through the back entrance to Canyonlands that will give you access to the lower reaches of the park that surrounds the Colorado River. Come here if you want to skip out on the typical crowds but you absolutely NEED a 4WD high clearance vehicle, no exceptions.
