Cool Moab Campgrounds...Suggestions

We need a campground suggestion for MOAB, UT. We have a 31' Airstream and we travel with 4 boys. (3-13 year olds & a 15 year old). Any campground suggestion would be good. I have been online but none jump out as a great place to stay.

If you want a full service campground i can't help. I f you can use a more primitive spot, there is a road just north of town that runs east along the river. The number escapes me but it is obvious on the map. We stopped at the first (BLM) campground, huge sites and backed right up to the river.
I do not recommend using the Nat. Park campground as it is clear at the back of the park and always full.
Regardless of where you stay when you tour Arches NP I recommend you go in early in the day, and then retreat by about 11 am. It becomes so crowded by then it ruins the experience.

Junk campgrounds in Moab, if you need showers and laundry, do it there. South not too far on 191 is a great dry camp, "Ken's Lake". I think it's BLM. Incredible country!

Dead Horse Point State Park. Only way to go, as far as I'm concerned!

The Moab areas has a wide variety of choices from National Park to BLM to canyons, to mountains, slick rock, full hook ups, no hookups, in town, ATV trails, horse trails, on the Colorado, the Green, in the middle of nowhere. What are you looking for?

Also when? The worst time to go and also the best is Spring / Easter break as there is a mongongous 4x4 rally that takes over the whole area.

We stayed at Dead Horse last year while traveling from Fort Collins, CO to Phoenix. It is a great little campground. They electric, a dump station but water is limited. Not all the sites would be good for a 31 foot trailer, but we caught up with some friends who were parked in a 34. The park is fantastic and it is right next to Canyonlands.

We stayed at the Riverside Oasis Campground just north of town. It was fine. Don't forget to have a Green Chile Hamburger at the Moab Diner. "The best Green Chile Sauce in Utah"

I second Lynn's and Richard's recommendations for Dead Horse Point SP. Just come in with your fresh water tank full! They do have bathrooms in the CG.

When do they open in the Spring? I know that they close in late October.

I wouldn't suggest staying at the KOA right in Moab. We drove from VA to Moab in a lifted Jeep Wrangler 2 years ago and that place was flooded and covered in mudd. We didn't camp, hotel'd it since we just had the Jeep. Was a blast off-roading there though!!

The Moab Rom RV park is pretty decent, we stayed there last spring and will be up there again in 2 or 3 weeks.. They open up on March 1. I'd forget the KOA

Yep, you need to go to Dead Horse Point with a plumb-full water tank. If you plan to stay longer (like a week, as we did), plan to take your showers elsewhere or to stink a little bit. When we arrived in the area, we spent a night in town at a regular RV park, where we dumped and filled water completely.

It seems a little extreme, but Dead Horse Point and the adjacent Island in the Sky sector of Canyonlands NP are well worth it, I believe.

I've had good luck with the Moab KOA; stayed there several times; the last row of pull-throughs is adjacent to a remote shower house designed with several private residential style bathrooms. Recommend "the Jail House" (breakfast only), and the local microbrewery.

Rather than spend the entire week at, say, Deadhorse, go over to Goblin Valley SP to the west. (you have to go North to the interstate, west to Green River then south).

Great campgound in a very scenic area and your kids, especially, will enjoy Goblin Valley. Then if you want to see world class pictographs, hike down to the Grand Gallery in the Horseshoe Canyon unit.

Hard to go wrong out there - staggeringly beautiful.
