“Great spot on the weekdays! ”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Great spot on the weekdays! Came through looking for sites on the weekend at Willow Springs. It was very crowded. Drove quite a ways down the road coming in on Sunday and there were many more open spots. The roads are really rugged. Lots of rocks, slippery rock and potholes. Didn't know if the 34 foot motorhome would actually make i... more

“The Original Entrance Road to Arches”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed for a number of nights in what turned out to be spring break for high schools and colleges. Do not expect a lot of privacy or room in this area, but do expect excellent views, friendly neighbors, and a lot of youthful energy. Big rigs should take the first site they see that they'll fit in. The road gets worse the further ... more

“Good place to pull over and sleep”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2016

Overall Rating

Absolutely perfect for those who get into Moab after sunset and just want a free (safe) place to sleep in your car or set up a tent next to your car. It has plenty of pull offs and good cell coverage. About 13 minutes from turnoff of 191S to Arches National Park Visitor Center. For the low key camper/crasher this is perfect. The beginn... more

“Dusty, busy & noisy”

Reviewed May 05, 2016

Overall Rating

While I love Moab, Willow Springs is not one of my favorite boondocking spots. It's simply too busy. We had a hard time finding a spot, and ended up right off the dusty, noisy road. The constant flow of OHVs kicking up dust as they zoomed past was tiring after a few days. Yes, there are many side roads with better spots, but they are a... more

“One of our favorite boondocking spot! Right by the bike trails!”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a dream spot! Amazing 360 view including the snow peaks of the La Sal Mountains and Arches National Park (yes, we could see both from the bus bedroom window!). I suggest you find a spot off the main road since it gets pretty busy on the weekend and it is quite dusty too. Just drive about half a mile and turn left on a side road... more

“Best free boondocking in Moab”

Reviewed Mar 16, 2016

Overall Rating

Not that there's many free places left in Moab, but it's still pretty great here. You're within 10 minutes of town, close to both national parks, heck you can even drive into arches from this road! Cell service is great. Only issue is all the dirtbikers making noise for a good part of the day, it's on and off and really didn't bother m... more

“About the only free camping left in the Moab Adventuretopia”

Reviewed Nov 15, 2015

Overall Rating

5 star rating depends on if there has been recent rain. If it has rained, the road turns to a red gooey mess pretty quick and can be a pain in the ass. After a day though it is dried out and overall a pretty easy road if you are not a wimp. This place is amazing late in the year. Mostly have the place to yourself and don't have to deal... more

“The site was level, dirt and quiet with three hundred sixty degrees of priceless views! ”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2014

Overall Rating

The only obstacle was getting there. After recent rains, the dirt road was deeply rutted in a couple of places. We rocked and rolled a bit getting to our site which was the last large site for our 40' towing 16'. Would return only after scouting the road conditions. We camped at the trailhead for bike riders. Was a little noisy... more
