Stayed here while visiting Arches and Canyonlands. Very cool area with great views. Noise wasn’t an issue. Lots of sites.

“Amazing Location”

Reviewed Oct 07, 2018

This was our first true boondocking experience. We are absolutely hooked. Friendly people, great scenery, and FREE. 6 miles from Arches and 25 miles from Canyonlands made it ideal for park exploration. It rained the last two days, which made the rock-hard red clay turn into red toothpaste. Exiting was sloppy, but the main road was... more

We stayed here 10 nights totally free! Will stay here again. this might be the best BLM property we have come across. Very easy access to Moab, Arches and Canyonlands. We drove to Mesa Verde for a day trip.

“Many flat spots, may be full during peak seasons”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2018

Overall Rating

This site worked well for us tent camping out of an old low clearance sedan. The roads were a little bumpy going in and out, but totally doable. We camped midweek in September and there were still many people out there with us. I suspect during peak season and weekends all the sites might be full, since you must camp in a designated sp... more

“Dusty, Hot, Great Access!”

There are many campsites to use in this area. I camped at the exact spot the pin is dropped on the map. There is enough room for three or four trailers without blocking the road. About a quarter mile to the west of the pin there is a "Campground" marker in Google maps. This is also a good spot but it is nowhere near as level. The ... more

“2018 Willow Springs Road is Perfect!”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2018

This is my favorite campsite in Moab. I’ve stayed here two years in a row. This week I stayed for 4 nights and it’s just amazing. At the end of the road is an incredibly clean and nice bathroom, and there are PLENTY of flat campsites to accommodate everyone. If you don’t have a high clearance vehicle, you won’t be able to reach the bat... more

Holy cow. This place is gorgeous and convenient. We tent camped on nice soft sand. There are ready-made fire pits and port-a-pottys. I would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect for free camping”

Reviewed Jun 11, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground was perfect for our 32ft class c. There is a sign which comes before the gps tells you to turn. Some sites aren’t available to lower clearance vehicles. One thing to keep in mind is that it is HOT in June. We were at the parks the first day and came back to over 100 in the rv. Running the generator and ac cooled us down... more

“Pretty ideal free camping- although crowded ”

Reviewed Jun 03, 2018

Overall Rating

Easy access, tons of spaces, close to town, close to national parks- what more do you need? One negative is there’s a lot of spots and the road leads to some trailheads so it is well traveled so not always the most quiet. Also like most of Moab there is no shade. Cell service is best near the entrance from 191, then dips away a b... more

Apple maps wanted up to go down some crazy road to get to this site. Just literally drive to Willow Flats Road. The mountain views are idyllic and larger rigs can get in here. You can park wherever and there are lots of fire pits around. This is the best site we have been to yet, and it’s all free. Our RV is 24’ and we had zero issues ... more
