Moab UT Campgrounds

Any Berkshire owners with recommendations for campgrounds in Moab, UT?

We stayed at the KOA in Moab. Sites were a little unlevel but manageable. Only CG that we were ever in that charged us when we arrived 1hour early than there 2 PM check in time. The charge was only $10 but it still annoyed us. The KOA is on the far end of town and about 15 minutes drive to the entrance of Arches.

Thanks! I was looking at Canyonlands but had read some reviews about it being too tight for big rigs.

Hi,

For folk who don't need a lot of amenities, there are BLM campsites along the Colorado River upstream from Moab. And plenty of sunlight for solar panels if you have them.

FWIW

7 days till we leave for Moab!
I have reservations at the KOA.
I'll have to remember that...
The BLM campsites along the river are first come first served... I hear they fill up quick.

Hi,

For ten years, I was a long term volunteer river ranger on the Colorado Riiver near Moab. It's true that the developed river sites are hot properties. But in addition, BLM has other campgrounds at places that are a bit more remote, like the Westwater Ranger Station and Wind Whistle.

Also, there are vast at-large camping areas elsewhere on other BLM lands and near the entrance to the Needles district of Canyonlands -- to the south of Moab. Great boondocking potential, if you are into that.

FWIW.

I just booked into the KOA. Canyonland and several other parks were already full for September. Let me know how it is and have a wonderful trip next week!

Last year we stayed in Green River, UT off of RT 70, at the KOA there. This was more centrally located for us as we drove to several different areas in UT. What I liked about this KOA, was that the sites were large for a KOA, campground was clean, the owners where on site and not as crowed as the campgrounds in Moab where. We stayed there in Sept,2016 for $47.00 a night which included tax.. This was about an hour drive away from Moab, UT and the Goblin State park along with Dead horse state park.

I have seen those and if we ever go back, that is where we will stay.
