RV camping is a perfect way to experience the area in and around Moab, Utah and all it has to offer.   As you plan your trip, there are important things to know about RV camping in Moab.  With so many options for campgrounds and resorts, this article will help you decide where to stay, what to see and tips for preparing and camping in the Moab Area.  

After traveling to the area and camping near Moab in our own travel trailer, I created this essential guide to RV camping in Moab.  I found out that camping in the desert of Moab takes some preparation and things that you need to know before you arrive.  

If you have not chosen where you want to stay, this article covers the options of camping in your RV at Arches or Canyonlands National Parks, the State Parks, BLM and Forest Service Campgrounds, private RV resorts, and free camping spots. 

We have been to Moab with a large family in a large 35-foot travel trailer in November.  After looking at all the options available we chose to stay at Dead Horse Point State Park.  We found the amenities and location to be perfect for a last-minute, late November trip.  

Of course what you choose to do in Moab and where you choose to stay will depend on the size of your rig, time of year (electric is nice in the winter), what you want to do and the comforts that you like to have. 

What you Need to Know About RV Camping in Moab

We have camped all over the west and spent a lot of time in our home state of Colorado.  RVing in Moab takes a little different preparation and planning. 

If you do not have an RV, or would like to camp in an RV for this part of a longer trip, you can rent all different sizes and types of campers. Some private campgrounds will let you rent one of their RVs right on site for a glamping option. Another option is to rent save a lot of money (and get local insider tips) renting from a private person on Outdoorsy.

Tips for Camping in the Desert

The first thing to remember when traveling to Moab and the region is that you will be traveling and camping in a high northern desert. And while the desert is a great place for RV camping, it is important to be aware of certain conditions.

To start with, the desert is not flat terrain. Especially if you are off the paved highway, you will encounter sand, gravel, Slickrock and other obstacles.  Some dirt roads become impassable when wet. 

Since the terrain can vary and be difficult to navigate, make sure you have maps and scouted your route.  The best approach is to ask the BLM or Forest Service Office for maps, directions, and for information about current road and weather conditions.

Be Prepared for Wild Temperature Changes

Also, because the desert is a dry climate, the heat evaporates rapidly after dark. Be prepared for radical changes in the temperature. The spring and fall can have very warm days but cold nights into freezing temperatures. 

One night in November we woke to a surprising 5 inches of snow. Fortunately being from Colorado, we were more prepared for the snow than our neighbors from California.

Remember to bring plenty of fuel for a generator, lots of layers of clothes and blankets. See our article about RV camping for a full RV packing list with printable.

For the summer heat, you will appreciate functioning air conditioning and properly fueled vehicles when traveling in the desert.

You may want to take an extra fan for circulation inside the camper.  Especially if you are boondocking, sometimes your generator (like ours) will run electric fans but no the air conditioning unit.

To help deal with midday heat, a fold-out awning is a great thing to have also.

Where is the Water?

And of course, remember to bring along enough water, as well as food and fuel, when RV camping in the desert.

A quick list of Fill and Dump Stations is below but we have a complete list of places to fill water in Moab in a separate article.  We have only used the free water filling at the Shell gas station.  You can find two free places to fill water on your arrival in Moab and many RV parks that charge a small fee.

    RV Water Fill and Dump Stations

    When we arrived in Moab with empty tanks, we needed to know about water but we did not find a comprehensive resource. So we made one for you here – where to fill water in Moab, Utah.

    The two places to fill your RV water tanks for free are the Shell Gas Station and Maverick Gas Station. Farm & City Feed and RV Supply charge $5 to fill your water tanks and dump. The other option are some private RV parks in the area.

    Shell Gas Station has a free water spigot that you can use. It is located south of town at 2420 Spanish Trail Rd, Moab. This is where we have stopped in even though we had to drive to the south end of Moab.

    Maverick Gas Station had a free water fill and dump station that you can use.  This station is at 985 S. U.S. 191

    Farm & City Feed and RV Supply have potable water and a dump station for $5.  You can pick up supplies, fill water and dump at this location 850 South Main Street, Moab 

    You can also fill water and dump at some of the private RV parks in the area.  Sometimes when we travel we spend our first or last night in an RV park. Then after a long road trip or boondocking for multiple days, we have access to the dump station, fresh water, showers, and other amenities.

    The campgrounds listed below are also reviewed later in this article in case you are considering staying for a night or two.

    Best Places to Camp in or near Moab

    Below is a list of some recommendations for the best places to camp in or near Moab. This list includes public parks and recreation areas, as well as private campgrounds, and links for more information about each.

    Keep in mind the following tips when choosing where to camp in your RV: 

    Private campgrounds have more amenities and may be more accommodating of large RVs than public parks with large RVs. However, they are correspondingly more expensive.

    Consider your and your family’s needs and prioritize what is important to you. For instance, if being in a Canyonlands or Arches National Park is a priority, prepare to do without hookups or easily available water or dumping stations.

    Canyonlands National Park can only accommodate RVs put to 28 feet in length.  Although Arches National Park has a few spots that can accommodate a larger RV (up to 40 feet) there are only a couple and the entire park fills months in advance.  

    Make sure to check that that location will accommodate the size of your rig (and the number of toys you may have along with you). Also, check which amenities the park has and reserve as soon as you know which location you would like to stay at.

    If you are boondocking, be prepared for hot days and cold nights. 

    RV Camping at Arches National Park 

    Devils Garden Campground in Arches National Park is a very popular campground situated 18 miles from the park entrance at the end of the road.  All sites are usually reserved months in advance, especially during the peak season.

    Make sure to reserve a campsite if you are visiting between March 1 and October 31.

    Facilities include drinking water, picnic tables, grills, and both pit-style and flush toilets.   Flush toilets and water are available except in winter. The campground is best for tent camping and small self-contained RVs. Hookups are not available.

    If you are planning on camping in Arches National Park or visiting the park while staying somewhere else, we have some resources for you:

    RV Camping at Canyonlands National Park

    Canyonlands National Park is separated into districts with the most popular for families being the Island in the Sky and The Needles. If you plan to camp here make sure you read our Guide to Exploring Canyonlands National Park.

    Willow Flat Campground is located in the Island in the Sky and Needles campground and Squaw Flat group site is located in The Needles District.  Only a few sites in each campground are large enough for a medium-sized RV or trailer.

    Willow Flat Island in the Sky Campground

    Willow Flat Campground only has 12 sites and is known for the spectacular Green River Overlook. The nightly rate is $15. No water is available at the campground and RV hookups are not available. 

    The Needles Campground has 26 individual sites, plus 3 group sites.  The nightly rate is $20.  There are toilets, picnic tables, and fire rings in the campground.

    Both campgrounds are only suitable for small RVs (maximum length 28ft). No hookups are available.

    Dead Horse Point State Park

     This small, but impressive state park features a high bluff overlooking the canyons and Colorado River.  The famous Dead Horse Point is connected by a narrow strip of land from the rest of the mesa in the park. 

    Side Note: This State Park got its name from a story of how cowboys used it to corral wild mustangs. One time, they neglected to release the horses they didn’t want, and the horses died.  Read more about Dead Horse Point State Park here.

    The park has two campgrounds, the Kayenta and the Wingate campground.  Both have tent sites, RV accommodations, and yurts.   We have a detailed article about camping at Dead Horse Point State Park based on our stay there in November.

    What you need to know when camping in Dead Horse Point State Park. View from the famous Dead Horse Point Overlook during our last camping trip
    View from Dead Horse Point Overlook

    This state park is unusual because  RV spaces can accommodate RVs up to 56 feet long.  In addition, the RV sites have electrical hookups and a dump station is available.  

    The newer Wingate campground has 20 RV campsites with electric hookups.   The Kayenta campground also has 21 sites with electric hookups.  There is a dump station that can be used by RVs from either campground but is located in Kayenta.   

    However, water hookups for RVs are not available due to the low water tables. The nearest filling station is in Moab (see the tips above for filling water in Moab or our full guide for filling water).

    Warner Lake Campgrounds

    Warner Lake Campground on National Forest is at a higher elevation than the other desert campgrounds.  It is set among dense aspen trees and would be a beautiful location and welcome relief from the summer heat. 

    Although La Sal National Forest has 3 developed campgrounds in the Moab Area, Warner Lake is the only campground available for small size RVs.  The maximum length is 20 feet. 

    The views of the surrounding La Sal mountain peaks are spectacular and Haystack mountain is visible from the campground. 

    You should know that Warner Lake is an hour’s drive from Moab (about 30 miles) and a 1.5-hour drive to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. 

    There is also a cabin for rent for $50 a night if you are traveling with a group that would like a mixture of accommodations.

    Ken’s Lake Recreation Area

     Ken’s Lake is a public recreation area managed by BLM near Moab.  The campground is located just 10 miles south of Moab and about 12 miles south of Arches National Park.  

    It is distinctive for its large lake (something not that common in the desert). Depending on the season, you can enjoy swimming and boating, as well as hiking.

    The campsites at Ken’s Lake can accommodate large vehicles and RVs up to 40 feet in length.  Amenities at this campground included picnic tables, grills, and vault toilets. There is no drinking water in the park or RV hookups, so you will be completely off-grid. 

    The recreation area has 49 individual units available at $15 a night for a maximum stay. Sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, see [].

    Sand Flats Recreation Area Campground

    This 9000-acre recreation area is located near the La Sal Mountains and is known for its natural wonders that include the many Slickrock formations. It is a popular camping spot that is also famous for its bike and 4×4 trails.

    The camping is available within specially marked areas. There are 120 individual campsites available, spread over nine campgrounds. The sites have basic general camping amenities, and several have RV spaces. These RV spaces, however, have no hookups, so be prepared. 

    Only 30 of the campsites can accommodate RVs over 30 feet in length, and none can accommodate those over 40 feet. So this campground is best suited to smaller RVs.

    All RV sites are available on a first-come-first-serve basis only and may not be reserved in advance. So you may have a difficult time finding a place with a larger rig in the high season.

    Goose Island Campground

    This BLM campground is located along the banks of the Colorado River and has been described as one of the prettiest campgrounds around. 

    Goose Island campground is within sight of the Wingate Cliffs of Arches National Park. It is also adjacent to a bike path that leads to Moab.

    Goose Island has 17 individual and two group campsites available. The most attractive sites are located right by the Colorado River. (The sites located near the toilets are likely least attractive due to the smell)

    The sites are available first-come, first-serve but you will find campers circling for a spot. Asking whoever is about to leave if they can use their spot next.

    Amenities are very limited at Goose Island. There are no hookups, and you need to bring your own water and do your own dumping in town.  Generator use is permitted between the hours are of 8 am to 8 pm.

    Plus it is only 18 minutes to Dead Horse Point State Park.  

    There are 56 sites arranged into three loops (Appaloosa, Buckskin, and Cayuse). 

    This campground is operated by the BLM and the few facilities include vault toilets, picnic tables, fire pits and tent pads.  The large flat areas are easily accessible to RVs and trailers.

      RV Parks and Resorts in Moab

      In addition to the public campgrounds, you can try the privately-run RV campgrounds in and near the Moab area.  Each offers more amenities than the State and National Parks, the BLM, or Forest Service campgrounds. 

      Many times the private campgrounds will accommodate larger RVs. However, they also can be more expensive than public camping areas.   

      These are the Best RV Parks in Moab to Camp

      Act Campground and Environmental Center

      This newer, small campground (just 21 sites) is located just a couple of miles from Moab. It is unique among private campgrounds because it emphasizes sustainability and offers educational programs, such as the Bio-Geology Workshops and Field Adventures. 

      In addition, Act Campground offers larger RV sites that can accommodate vehicles up to 45 feet long. Each site has 20, 30, and 50 amp electric, sewer, water hookups, and the campground has its own dump station.

      Amenities include Free Wi-Fi, as well as laundry, communal kitchen, and dining area.

      One drawback, according to reviews, is that it can be a bit hard to find. So have a map and phone number on hand.

      Tent sites, cabins, and yurts are also available if you need a variety of accommodations for a larger group. 

      If you’re looking for a less crowded (and pet-friendly) private RV camp experience, Act may be for you.
