Overall Rating

After hiking Dead Horse Point State Park, we were ready to find a spot to camp this mid-October night. Cowboy Camp fit the bill as it wasn't far off Hwy 313. There are only 7 spots, and most remained unclaimed for the night. Each has a metal picnic table and fire ring and tons of elbow-room.

The nightly fee was $10 in 2015 but has risen to $15 to match the other BLM sites in the Moab arein when we stayed again in October 2016. The open-air, roofless but still private pit toilet is a negative, but mostly because of the strong ell.

A strong thunder, lightning and rain storm plowed through that night and we were frankly relieved NOT to have been struck by lightning. We loved this wild open spot and will definitely return.

If you need larger spots, try Horsethief which is a few miles further and lower and is set up for large RVs.
