“Good location for Moab activities”

Reviewed Oct 30, 2018

Camped 10/17/18 & 10/18/18 (Wed & Thur). We planned a mid-week arrival to Moab to avoid higher weekend crowds. Didn't matter - the town was really busy anyway. There were many sites open at Ken's Lake though, and since it was rainy and BLM roads were muddy, we opted to not go off-road to boondock. $20 seemed high for VTs only (we g... more

“Nice campsite, but for $20, I may look elsewhere”

Reviewed Oct 23, 2018

Ken’s lake is a pretty nice campground if you are in need of a place to camp near Moab but don’t want to hit the back country or get off of a semi-prepared road surface. It’s about 1.5 miles back from the highway and the gravel road is in really nice conditon. The sites were very roomy and you weren’t right on top of other campers. The... more

We stayed in the loop without shade, but we were close to the pit toilet and had great views of the lake and mountains in the background. It was in the high 80s in mid-may so be sure to pack in plenty of water.

That seems to be the rule for all campgrounds in the area. This was our first trip to Moab and we spent our first night at the rest area by Hole in the Rock (probably not bad if a refrigeration semi doesn't park next to you). Many of these sites are large enough for big rigs. No water, no dump station and pit toilets so kinda the ba... more

We stayed here in March/18 so expect pretty cold temperatures/snow during that time. We picked one of the 3-4 semi-circle drive through sites, they were well spaced apart, but our rig was about as big as I think you could fit, possibly a 38 Class A, but with our dually it was a tight squeeze as they place huge boulders that restrict tu... more

Despite being a sanctioned campground, Ken's Lake was pretty quiet. There are people cruising around with ATVs and dirt bikes, but less so than other spots in the area. The lake is nice, and people were friendly.

Stopped here on my way to CO. I was surprised by how nice it was. Good views! In the middle of the night there were some dune buggy racing happening which was pretty obnoxious but hopefully that isn't a regular occurance.

We camped at Ken's Lake Campground from March 31st until April 2nd. We arrived in Moab to heavy traffic on Friday morning. Driving through town all the commercial campgrounds appeared very full so we were concerned we wouldn't get a spot at Ken's Lake. The campground is about 10 minutes outside of downtown. Google maps took us ri... more

Ken's Lake campground is a nice BLM campground 20 minutes south of Moab in Spanish Valley. There are 31 well spaced sites. There are tables and nice fire pits. The bathrooms are vault type and were well maintained each day. There weren't enough bathrooms so lines did form in the mornings. TP did run out at one point so bring some.... more

We arrived late morning on a Saturday in June so we were happy to not only find an open spot but we had plenty to choose from. We picked a spot in the first loop with a nice view of the lake, La Sal mountains and surrounding area. Also was a short walk from the site to the lake. Close enough to Moab to run for water and supplies and... more
