So quiet, clean and beautiful! Spaces are spread out and quiet. There was a table and a fire ring. Vault toilet was clean.

Very quiet with great views. Pit toilets well kept. Great access to Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands Island in the Sky. About 25 minutes to Arches.

“Great Camping Near Moab”

Reviewed Jul 27, 2017

Overall Rating

Like others, we originally tried to get into Dead Horse State Park, but it was full. We really enjoyed our stay here. The sites are very large and there are trails right off the campground for hiking etc. The campsites along the edge have unobstructed views of the desert landscape. The campground is just a few minutes from Canyonland... more

“Excellent campground! Lovely views, spacious sites, mountain bike/hiking trails right from the campground and Verizon service!”

Reviewed May 12, 2017

Overall Rating

With no openings at the nearby state park, we opted for Plan B – Horsethief BLM Campground. We were thrilled! The campground is large and all sites are first come/first served. And the sites are fantastic. Spacious and spaced far enough apart with vegetation between to provide some privacy. Excellent views too! Each site has a nice l... more

“Great for Mountain Bikers”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Horsethief Campground is a large, nicely laid out campground near a ton of great biking. It's between Moab and Canyonlands (Island in the Sky District).

Sites are level(ish) and most are back in sites. I did see some bigger rigs, but many more small rigs, popups, and tents.

Scenery is great, bird watching is decent too.

“A quiet campground close to Canyonlands”

Reviewed May 05, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a great spot if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Moab. It's also a good alternative to the always full Dead Horse State Park (and after seeing both a nicer campground in my opinion). There are no hook-ups, showers, fresh water, or dump station, but the sites are generous in size with a good amount of space bet... more

This was a nice surprise when visiting Canyonlands National Park. It's about 10 miles outside the park entrance and quiet, clean and restful.

“Couldn't get into Dead Horse Point so was sent here.”

Overall Rating

I really liked the camphost (he's been fulltiming over 20 years) and paid $7.50 with my Senior Access Pass. # 52 is close to the road so lots of traffic in and out but the camphost suggested since I didn't want to unhook my car from the RV that I could "pull alongside" the site and it worked out fine. Bit of a washboard access into the... more

“This is a wonderful campsite if visiting Canyonlands NP, Dead Horse SP and possibly Arches.”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a lovely campsite located just off the road to Canonlands National Park and Dead Horse State Park. Canyonlands is about 16 kilometres past Horsethief and Dead Horse about the same. The price is on the high side for a BLM site - there are no services of any kind but the site quality more than makes up for it. Note that Canyonla... more
