Amazing National Park, pleasant campsites

This campground has decent separation between sites but not much shade because the juniper trees are so short. The views at this park are incredible, however you won't see much from your campsite itself. It's tucked into thick juniper forest. This place has lots of bear activity so be sure to bring a bear canister to supplement the provided bear boxes. We saw a blonde haired black bear along one of the roads and were so happy that we were in our car. There's a little self service kiosk for walk up sites. Vault toilets, picnic table, and a fire ring with open flame grill. Just be aware that to do anything on the north rim of the canyon it is a several hour drive. So your activities will likely be limited to the south rim. Would gladly return!

Great location, underwhelming otherwise

My girlfriend and I stayed one night here upon arriving to Moab. It's extremely close to the entrance of Arches NP and also to downtown Moab. Is definitely a good place to get an early head start on the arches crowds. The office has some essential items available for purchase, didn't check out the pool. The bathrooms receive a C+. Tent sites do have canopy for shade, picnic table, and a charcoal grill. However all the sites are packed tightly together, not much privacy.

Spectacular view, easily accessible

Stayed 3 nights in a row in Mid October 2016. Really enjoyed the beach camping. With incredibly easy access to Wahweap bay. The moon was so bright at night that we didn't even need headlamps to go to the toilets. $14 per night(need a one time $35 pass to Glen Canyon National Recreation area.) It was not too crowded in Mid October. On Saturday and Sunday there was a line of RVs and Campers along the waters edge. And then a few of us forced to camp back from the water(200ft) near the dunes(closer to the toilets). And then on Sunday night most of the crowd cleared out and we move our tent up to the "front row".

(The cons list looks longer, but the pros far outweigh) Pros: right on the shore of Wahweap bay. Amazing views day and night. Cheap fees considering the fancy microflush toilets.

Cons: Camping on a sandy beach can cause some issues, especially if winds pick up. I assume it's really crowded in the summer. This part of lake Powell features mostly grey colored rocks, if you are hopin to see the signature red rocks of lake Powell, you will likely need a powered watercraft. (We spent an entire afternoon paddleboarding, and couldn't even reach the far end of Wahweap bay.
