We like Dead Horse Point State Park which is near Canyon Land. They have 30amp hookup, limited water, bathrooms (no showers) and a dump station.

A couple of weeks ago we spent 1 night at...

Day 13 of the 2010 trip - Airstream Forums

Easy in, easy out. Pool and hot tub, reasonable prices for full hookups.

Nothing better than staying in Arches. But it's either reserve a space or be there when the gates open for the walk-up lottery.

There is a nice, quiet BLM campground on the left just south of Moab off 191.
Dry camping, no pull throughs that I remember, nice views west.

The BLM page for campsites around MOAB is here. Actually, this is for the one just north of Moab, but you can get to all of them from this page.

I don't know where you're headed, but you shouldn't miss the chance to boondock at exit 131 on I-70. There are many red rock features and rock art in the area. There are other threads that have the details of this area.

Boondock on the north side of the exit, either up on the little rise (if you are short enough) or back in the junipers about 300 yards. I've camped there 3 times and there has been no one else there. If you go to the south side of the exit and follow the dirt road west, you can often find 4-wheelers who can tell you where the rock art and major rock formations are.

It's a neat site. As I recall, it's only a few miles south of Moab. Maybe Fish & Game site.

There is some rock art right as you enter Moab (right across the river). You will see a River Boat tour and dinner company on your right and the art is up the hill a little on the right side of the road across from it. You can barely see it from the road but there is a pull off and trail up to it.

Also, that river boat tour and dinner was great when we went on it.

Moon',

There is a campground in Arches and depending on the time of year, spaces may or may not be available. The spaces aren't very long, but your Bambi should fit. Check the park website to see if there are any open spots that can be reserved.

On the highway east out of Moab along the Colorado R. (can't remember the number, something like 128), there are riverside campsites. A friend stayed in one last spring maybe 8 miles east of the junction of that highway and US 191 and it's quite nice. These are probably BLM campgrounds and you could Google to find info about them. The highway along the river goes east to Cisco and I-70. Parts along the river are quite narrow, but I took a 25' trailer along it after only owning it a week or so.
