Hey Charlie, I would be interested to see your review of this new campground after you have stayed there. Looks interesting. Might be a good base camp for an area photo outing.

If you choose not to stay in, or can't get into one of the campgrounds inside Arches or Canyonlands, we stayed at Riverside Oasis Campground at the north end of Moab. Full hookups and shade.

If you are in Moab, don't miss a green chile hamburger at the Moab Diner.

Sure, I'll take some pictures and post them after the stay along with a review. We don't usually go for anything with hook ups but this just sounded like a neat sidebar to our vacation. He has basic power and water sites as well as full hook up sites. I grew up with drive in theaters and have a hard time finding one anymore so I look forward to that and hopefully checking out some of the old airstreams of the stars if they're not occupied. The owner said he just came back with Audrey Hepburn's Airstream while she was shooting Breakfast at Tiffany's, so I take it that all the Airstreams decorated after the stars where actually the Airstream they used while on a movie location. We'll most likely spend the days hiking and then kicking back at the drive in for the evening.
I'm sure it would be a nice spot for a photo outing. As I recall you like telescopes and that area has the best visibility of any area in the lower 48. The night skys are incredible.

Bryce for a day or two, Zion is excellent, but Dead Horse is a must. No showers at dead horse. Get one of the first campsites on the right when you come in. # 1-5

We just got back from 3 weeks in UT, AZ and NM. I will tell you that I-15 south of SLC is in HORRIBLE condition. We did extensive damage to the front end of our Durango due to pot holes and actually popped 2 rivets in the ceiling of the Sport. Construction barriers that are placed on the white line on your right make the potholes unavoidable. Posted minimum speed is 45, and I hit some at 40. $1,400 and a day later in Mesquite and we were on our way!

Got back two weeks ago from Moab.
Stayed Riverside Oasis. they were supposed to have me in a pull through as I am 51 ft long - 31ft trailer and duramax crew cab short bed.....got there and they had me in a short back in despite me having reservations.
I was NOT happy with the move and voiced my displeasure, but stayed with them anyway as I didn't want to go looking for someplace else.

You are headed for a wonderful area with no shortage of beautiful camp sites. In addition to the others mentioned, if you're up for a bit of boondocking, a hidden gem is Juniper Campground in Sand Flats Recreation Area, just out of Moab. It's the last and newest campground on the Sand Flats road. The access road is sand and gravel, but I'd take our 24' in without concern. No hookups or water, large well-spaced sites, awesome views and immediate access to world class off-roading and mountain biking. It's pretty hot in July and August, though.

If you are coming in from the east, I would highly recommend Mesa Verde and Sand Dunes National Parks - in CO.

Near Arches, we stayed on BLM property - right on the Colorado River.

If you are going through SLC, the best RV spot to stay is Pony Express just off I-215.
