We car camped at Willow Springs for 2 nights and had an awesome experience. The road getting into the area itself is easy enough for any car and then the campsite roads vary from totally flat to requiring 4WD. There were lots of people camping but plenty of space between all of the sites (and a huge variety in site choices). Awesome view of the La Sal mountains on a clear day and the stars were amazing too. Great place to camp for free near Moab. I will definitely be back.
This is one of the best dispersed camping areas around Moab. The location is north of Moab by 25 minutes or so. Right on two mountain bike trails - Sovereign Single track (great for intermediate and advanced riders) and the Klonzo trial system (great for beginners).
There are great moto options all around too. The road can be a little rough getting back to these sites so lower clearance vehicles may have some trouble.
Great location, great riding, and free.
Good spot, Porto potties are placed along the trail. It was busier than I expected it to be in December, about a dozen campers; 2 others drove into the area I parked in. Plenty of spots though
Stayed here for a night before checking out the Delicate Arch at sunrise. Works pretty well for that as it is only a 10 minute drive to the entrances of Arches NP.
We didn't venture very far down the main road, and at the beginning it is pretty dense with campers. Probably not the best choice if you're looking for more secluded camping.
Mid-November it got down to about ~30 degrees F. Down to ~24F when we entered the park at 5:30am.
Just outside Moab and arches it’s a beautiful dispersed camping area with amazing views
Stayed here last weekend and had a great time with our large group! Plenty of camp sites along the main road and smaller connecting side roads. Some of the side roads definitely require 4x4 and high clearance to drive.
We found an amazing site overlooking Arches National Park in the distance. Plenty of spaces for campers, RVs, trailers and tents. Sites are simple and marked by fire rings. Not much shade so it would be pretty hot out here in the summer. Gorgeous views!
It was super crowded this time of year but still very clean, no trash, bathrooms in great shape too!
Large area with plenty of spots, a few side roads lead to even more spots. Main road was in good shape, side roads get pretty rough. Nothing impassable, just slow going. There are several Port-O-Lets along main road and a pit toilet near the back of the area. Arrived the Wednesday before Outerbike and found a spot at the end of the main road. Was a very busy weekend and the place stayed full - but never felt too crowded. Easy access to the Klonzo and Sovereign Trails via Willow Springs Road.
Open dispersed free camping along a gravel BLM road. Went all the way to the end and the road was fairly smooth in our dodge promaster. There are porta potties every so often and they’re surprisingly very clean. I would definitely stay here again.
Not a bad spot if you don’t have any other options and don’t wanna pay! We came in late and everything was taken and we didn’t wanna be far from town so this worked out perfectly There are some nicer spots with trees and a a little more privacy farther in but it’s a race to get them
A little rough getting back in very far with a Class C but we did & found a pretty quiet place the 2nd night. First night we were closer to the highway & more traffic going back & forth until late with people looking for spots.
