Another cool side trip is down 191 through Blanding to Bluff where there is a BLM campground just west out of town on the Cottonwood River called "Sand Island".

Oh, Bluff is one of my favorite places! We usually stay at the Cadillac Ranch RV Rark in town rather than over at Sand Island, but the place is smack in the middle of beautiful country! Oh, and head down the street to the end of town and have a Navajo taco at the Twin Rocks Cafe while you're there!

We stayed at Cadillac Ranch because of Lynn's recommendation and we were not disappointed. We passed on the Navajo Taco, but did have a great steak in town. We will be going past there this summer and will stop for the Navajo Taco.

We have stayed at Moab Valley RV in town because we needed to leave the trailer for 3 days while doing the White Rim Road. Nice to have AC hookup and pool when you come out of the back country.

Arches is always full and it's a land rush every morning to get a spot, first come-first served, plus not a lot of spaces for long rigs. But love camping there!

Dead Horse and Canyonlands are great but bring what you need because it's a ways from town.

There are some boondock spots on the CO river on Hgwy 128 that are nice and closer to town. Goose Island and Big Bend.

We had a one nighter in Moab last summer. Chose the KOA for convenience.
It had one of the best bath houses I have ever seen.

The one time I stayed at a commercial park in Moab, I stayed at Canyonland RV Park. It was high summer and I had guests so boondocking was out. The campground was shaded, nice enough shower house, price was reasonable for what it was.

Pasta Jay's downtown across from the visitors center, best pasta you'll stick a fork into.

I've been there on a mountain bike trip. Nights are nice in the summer, but daytime temps are HOT. A site with electricity or a gen to run the AC would be a must.

We go to Moab every spring and fall and always stay in Devils Garden, but you'll never get in before July if you haven't already booked it. If you're looking for a fall destination I'd try to book there. If you're looking for a spring destination at this point I'd check horse thief campground which sits between Dead Horse state park and Arches NP, or if you want a scenic view try Fischer Towers. If you go to the boon docking section of the forum there is a nice thread on boon docking near Moab with great directions and some really good spots.
None of these locations have hookups but cheap showers are available at a terrible rv park on the south side of town for only $2.00.
I wouldn't want to camp in the area from June through Sept. but if you are, I'd definitely find a place with hookups. There are a lot of RV parks in the town of Moab.

Marshall, Devil's Garden is the name of the campground at Arches. It's a great place, but pretty crowded, for obvious reasons. Here's the blurb from the NPS-Arches site:

Quote:
The Devils Garden Campground is located eighteen miles from the park entrance and is open year-round. Facilities include potable water, picnic tables, grills, as well as both pit-style and flush toilets. There are no showers. Bring your own wood or charcoal for the grills. Some sites will accommodate RVs up to 30 feet in length.
Telephone and on-line reservations for both group and individual sites may be made through www.recreation.gov. Reservations are not accepted by the park, and the park does not maintain information about site availability.
Individual Sites
The campground has 50 individual sites which are $20 per night and will accommodate up to ten people. These sites may be reserved for nights between March 1st and October 31st. Reservations must be made no less than four days and no more than 180 days in advance. There is an additional $9 booking fee for reservations. To make a reservation, visit www.recreation.gov, or call (877) 444-6777, (877) 833-6777 (TDD), or (518) 885-3639.

It's in Arches NP but lies about 17 miles from the entrance. You can book a site 6 months out on Res. America, but I'm sure all of the spring sites are now booked. Some of the campground is first come first serve so you may stand a chance of getting in if you arrived during the middle of the week and got in line before 6 am at the visitors center. I wouldn't even try to get in line for a site on the weekend. There are also very few sites in the campground that could handle a 31" airstream. When do you plan to go?
