Stayed here for 2 nights during the week. There were a lot of big RVs and ATVs back there, all of whom had to navigate the wash to get back there. The was was no problem for our Xterra and while the road is in rough shape we were able to get back to the camping area by taking it slow. The camping area is about .5 mile off of the main r... more

“Drove in, turned around and left”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2019

After reading other reviews, we drove in, crossed the sandy wash, which was dry. It was so soft with a 10,000 lb trailer that I was a nervous wreck. My husband who doesn't rattle easily, got us through. The road was so rough we crept along until we could turn around. There were plenty of people and rigs in there, lots of ATVs and motor... more

Hot, full sun, windy, dusty, noisy but free! Loads of motors - dirt bikes, jeeps, dune buggies & 4 wheelers - day & night. Close to everything. Great sunsets & moonrises.

Let me say, I had never truly boondocked on BLM before. I came to Moab specifically to do so. We tried to find another BLM site but nearly flipped our trailer doing so. The experience shook us up a bit and we almost drove to Thompson Springs with our heads hung low to find a campground spot (as all the local parks were booked out the w... more

Now, we haven’t gone to every single boondocking spot in and around Moab, but I can guarantee this one is the best combination of convenience/access to town, solitude, beauty and cell service. But you don’t have to take my word for it, ask Levar Burton the next time you see him. But if you don’t tend to run into the actor most ... more

Perfect spot! Quiet and so much space!! Beautiful scenery. Perfect location to explore surrounding areas: City of Moab, Arches National Park, Dead Horse State Park, and Canyonlands. There is also a nice paved 9 mile bike path from near Arches to Moab. Didn't want to leave this place.

“Perfect spot to avoid the Willow Creek Rd busyness”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2017

This was a much quieter option than now super popular Willow Spring Rd. We found a beautiful spot off the main Rd when it branches to the left. It got a bit busier on the weekend (Jeep/4-wheelers), but still very peaceful. These flats gets very windy (just like Willow Spring Rd), so keep your awnings in during the night or if you leav... more

This is a great alternative to the always busy Willow Springs Rd. boondocking area. Tons of room out where with large, open spots and awesome mountain views. We spent an enjoyable 12 days here away from the crowds that you'll find in virtually every other part of Moab. The only issue with this area is that to reach the boondocking s... more
