Overall Rating

There are 8 campsites in this CG all dry camping and all have a table and fire ring/grill. Seven of the sites are back in up to about 35’ and site #4 is a pull up site that could handle just about any size rig. Sites 6&7 are good for 20-22’, #9 will accept any length and has a 50 step path to the table and fire ring. The area was was very clean. Pretty much all gravel. Our site was as level as they come. The highway is adjacent to the campground but there is little traffic and not much noise. No reservations, first come first serve. We stayed in #3 for 4 nights. Can’t beat the views. Just about 15 min to Moab, 45 min to the visitors center at Canyonlands NP and 12 min to the visitors center at Arches NP. There is a hiking trail across the road to Corona Arch (1.5 mi out and back) that is good. There are train tracks across the road but when they come by (very infrequent) its just a low hum and no whistle. Two other campers on Saturday night and one on Sunday night, none on Monday and two on Tuesday. There is a group campground (same name) just past this one and there were 2 groups there on the weekend. There are 4 group sites there and quite a bit of parking. The group sites are $20 a night minimum (or $5 per person). They do take reservations for the group sites and they post a calendar with the reservations to see what is available. There is a big dumpster for trash at the group CG. There are several pit toilets (very clean) between the two campgrounds. The Colorado river is right next to the campgrounds. Best 15 bucks ever for a campsite.
