Overall Rating

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 sites you must cross a 100-foot sandy wash that require 4WD. Seriously, don't try to drive out here with your Class A. You will get stuck! However, if you tow a trailer or fifth wheel with a 4WD truck you should be fine. We made it with our 25-foot trailer with no problems and saw multiple other RVs much bigger and heavier than us who also made it. When you first turn on the road there's a large parking area where you can unhitch and drive across the wash without your RV first to make sure you can make it.

This road is the access point for a series of OHV and mountain bike trails, but if you don't park right on the main road any traffic going past should not be an issue.

The cell service reported is with a booster. Despite the solid signal it was slow at times depending on how many other people were hitting the tower. Without the booster it was really, really slow.
