“Great location for hiking, biking and hanging out along the Colorado River”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2015

Overall Rating

We spent two nights here in mid October, enjoying the close access to the Negro Bill (Granstaff) Canyon Trail (just across the road) as well as the bike path into Moab. The Granstaff Campground is named after this gentleman who was one of the first African-American cowboys in the area back in the 1800s.

We got a special bonus watching our neighbors deploy their powered parachutes right from the campground each morning. They puttered around up in the sky for an hour, bopped around and through the canyons, along the Colorado River and way out of view over the canyon rim. Very cool!

Two vault toilets are strategically located here. The campground is long, and narrow, following the contours of the chocolate-colored Colorado River. Lots of road noise during the day, but it quiets down substantially overnight. During the morning, it may take a while to warm up because of the tall canyon walls.

We've stayed in five of the Moab area's BLM campgrounds during this trip, and they are each well-located, nicely maintained and feature fairly clean vault toilets. It's a great value, and we really appreciate the number of affordable options in this area. Each one has its own personality and caters to a particular type of camper. This one was great for tents, small trailers, vans like ours and other smaller rigs. No generators, water or electrical hookups.
