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

Would stay again, the only complaint would be that the dog leash rule wasn't enforced. While talking to the HOST, his dog ran up to our dogs. Our dogs do not do really well with other dogs. I told the HOST at least three times to get his dog and he did nothing. Mean while our dogs were freaking out and excited with this off leach do... more

We've been in Moab for two weeks now and have stayed at five different BLM campgrounds on all four sides of town. This is the best— no road noise, plenty of room, lots of sunshine (compared to the narrow canyons northeast of town).

When we visit Moab next time, we'll be putting down roots in this amazing location.

We came into Moab late, looking for a place to stay. All the BLM campsites we checked were full, including this one, but we really liked the look and feel of this place. Early the next morning we were here, waiting for someone to pull out so we could grab their spot. The strategy worked and we got a nice site in the lower campground.... more
