Camping in Moab

Peter & Joyce Grace Flikr

It is easy to understand why spending the weekend at an RV park or a campground is becoming so popular. Outdoor recreation is on the rise as people search for more healthy and family-oriented activities and camping is a great way to get away and spend some time together without having to do a lot of planning. As home to more than 1600 campsites, Moab is sure to have a site that suites your taste. Whether you are looking for a rustic adventure or a campground loaded with amenities, you are guaranteed to find just what you are looking for. You can choose a site close to the area you plan to explore such as Arches National Park or the Slickrock trail, or a more centralized campground that will provide you with easy access to several different adventures. In this directory you will find a listing of several of the campgrounds in and around Moab. So pick your site and pack your tent or load up your RV and head to Utah’s summer playground for a weekend away that you won’t soon forget.

National Park & State Park Campgrounds

The advantage to a National or State Park campground is the location. You are guaranteed to be surrounded by incredible scenery and in close proximity to several hikes, lookout points, or even visitors centers. On the downside, National and State Park campgrounds usually offer fewer amenities than some privately owned campgrounds and while they do offer RV sites it is rare to find hookups. National and State Park campgrounds generally do not accept reservations so plan to be there early if you want to get a good spot. Moab is the gateway city for the following National and State Park campgrounds:

Bureau of Land Management Campgrounds

The area surrounding Moab is managed by the Bureau of Land Management, and contains several campgrounds that are well maintained and perfect for your next family outing. Similar to the National & State Park Campgrounds, the campgrounds on BLM land offer few amenities. They do however offer very scenic locations and some group sites, which can be reserved in advance. You will want to arrive early to get a good site as the group sites are the only ones that can be reserved.
