Quiet campground perfect for exploring the spectacular Canyon Rims Recreation Area. Individual sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. One group site, Windwhistle Group Site, is available for reservation through Recreation.gov. Located 38 miles southwest of Moab, the campground is nestled against the smooth sandstone of Roan Bailey Mesa. At approximately 6,000 feet in elevation, it is somewhat cooler than Moab in the summer. A one-mile nature trail starts in the campground. Nighttime brings excellent star gazing opportunities. Individual Sites: 15 (limited to 10 people
Typical BLM campground not far off of 191. Stayed here during the very busy Memorial Day weekend and was one of only a few campers. Vault toilets.
Very clean, empty trashes, full toilet papers, and not to mention hiking trails and gorgeous views right outside your tent! We had a group of six and plenty of room with lots of memories made :)
This place is just to the east of Canyonlands and about 6 miles off Route 191 (to Moab). No reservations except for the group site.
15 sites - only 2/3 were occupied by evening. Sites are fairly private. Only $7.50 if you have an NPS Senior Pass, $15 for others.
There is water but there are vault toilets (just not my favorite). If the wind blows the wrong way, you won't like the smell.
There is nothing to do here other than walk a 1/2 mile nature trail which is well done. But…you are 10 miles from Needles Overlook and another 16 from Anticline Overlook. That last 16 miles is a dirt/gravel road. The first overlook is a quick trip, and it is really a series of overlooks. The Forest Service did a great job developing paths to the overlooks. The best part….almost no people!
If you like camping with no one around, I think you can camp on BLM/NFS land up to a certain point out here.
