Moab, Ut Tips & Suggestions

Planning a trip to Moab, Ut in May. Was my old stomping grounds when I was kid back in the 70s & early 80s, not been back since I joined the military in 84. Youngest son (20) is a competition rock climber and plans to climb a few rocks with a few of his climbing buddies (that will be tagging along). The DW, myself and #1 son (23) will kick around Moab. Plan to stay about 3 or 4 days. Then slip over to Salina, Ut to see family Iíve not seen in years.

Looking for suggestions on campgrounds and if possible inexpensive things to do. We are traveling from Missouri and have a free place to park in Denver one night going and returning. I'm sure we'll travel I-70, any concerns there?

No real concerns with I-70 but be aware you will encounter a couple long steep mountain grades on the Interstate once you're west of Denver. Once you get passed Vail, CO the grades aren't that bad. When you see a sign along the highway at the top of a grade that says, "Truckers check you brakes," please do so. You don't want to have to use one of those escape ramps along the highway.

You're gonna find out what diesel engines do best...pull a load.

If you can get a site at Devils Garden Campground inside of Arches I would do it. There are no hookups, so you are boondocking. Nice, clean restrooms with running water (no showers however). The surroundings are amazing as you know. Flashlight hikes to tapestry or broken arch once the sun goes down are unforgettable. Younger kids are in "kid heaven" with all the rocks to climb on and places to explore. That's just my $.02.

Due to sequestration, trip canceled. 20 percent pay cut put a clamp on the camping budget.
