Camping In Moab
Best Spots To Camp
About Camping In Moab
Utah is best experienced outside and is the welcomed culprit to the plethora of outdoor lodging in and around Moab. Who wouldn’t want a suite of Slickrock for their living room and the cosmos as their chandelier? Check out this list of awesome spots along the mesas and Colorado River.
Most of these campgrounds (except the dispersed) come with vault toilets, fire pits, and picnic tables. They do not provide potable water or RV hookups unless otherwise stated. Also, it’s good to know that collecting firewood in this completely parched wilderness is understandably prohibited.
