Suggested RV Sites for Mohab Utah?

As can be seen by my below picture during my "coast-2-coast" RV trip a few weeks back - I have fallen in love with "Mohab Utah" and wish to stay there a few days on my next trip up to Steamboat Springs.

Can anyone recommend any "full site" hookups - and if not then any nice places to stay at for a few days with the Airstream?

If you are willing to forgo the hookups there is a road just north of moab that runs to the right (east) along the river. Sorry I don't recall the rt number but the road is obvious ( so is the river) There are a number of gov. campgounds along this road. We stayed at the first one
we came to. Huge sites backed up to the river and very pleasant.
We found the National park was way too crowded unless you went in early in the morning and got out by around 10 am

Gonna go take a look at Google Maps now and see if I can find it - what about hookups though if interested in a week stay?

Since we are strictly boondockers I can't offer much on hook ups beyond noticing there seem to be a number of private parks in town. I"m sure some one should have some recommendations

Dead Horse Point State Park is in the area and a great place to camp. They have 30 amp electric, limited water, dump station and rest rooms (no showers).

We went through the area last October and fell in love with it as well. We will be driving through Moab on Friday.

Moab

Got back frm Moab May 23. Incredible place. Stayed @ Moab Valley Rv.had full hook up.Clean.Pull thrus.Trees. Also stayed in "Arches" our favorite.No hookups.no showers.But incredible!!! i think there full till Oct. Made rsv.in Nov. for May .See if you can get in. Its a about a 1/2 hour drive from gate to camp site tho.But worth it.There is nothing better than driving in or out of arches listening to the "Pastoral" Symph.(or your fav. classical)
If you have time and are up for Fun !!Chk out "Moab Adventure Center" we did a Colorado river full Day trip (Easy) and Jeep Rental for two days.
Jeep rental can take you to places were few people go.The views were incredible.We loved it. Try the Onion Creek ,Long Canyon-Pucker Pass and Potash Trail.
"Miguel's Baja Grill for a good meal. Across from Moab Adventure is an Excellent Breakfast Dinner.Great Value and Food.

The proper name would be "Devils Garden Campground" in Arches.

Have stayed at the Moab KOA in previous trips and it was good. The breakfast place is "Moab Diner" . Enjoy your stay,there are lots of Cool places and things to do. This was our third trip.The first was to "Check it out" the 2nd. we did a ten day canoe trip on the Green River w/Friends.Our most recent was the Raft trip and Jeep Rental .When we go back I'd like to get the jeep for a week and a multiday Grand Canyon trip.The Grand Canyon trip departs from Las Vegas.Have to figure out logistics .

A couple of years ago Lynn and I visited Moab. We stayed at the Riverside Oasis Campground just north of town. It was nice. Lots of shade. Besides the canyons, one highlight for us was the Moab Diner. They boast the "Best Green Chile Sauce in Utah", and it may well be.

I agree with Jim. There is also a night dinner cruise on the Colorado river which is great. We took the cruise (2-3) hours a few years back and the lighting in the canyon was great. Well worth it.

Often fully booked. If they turn you back, retreat along the road a couple miles and take the first major dirt road to the east (Long Canyon Road), then take the smaller road into the bush (actually, junipers) to the northeast. You'll find a road crew pit and just past that some acceptable boondocking. Nicely screened by the junipers and a great view to the east.

We got in and out of there with a 27' Overlander. Had to back up some, but not too much.

I am really getting excited about heading out to Mohab - looks like one trip just won't do it - luckily this is a great stopping off spot as I commute between San Diego and Steamboat Springs!!!

You guys R O C K ...
