Moab Trip

We are looking at taking the toy hauler to ride our UTV in Moab late April early May. Anyone have insight on places to setup camp (with hookups) and direct access to Moab trails?

I believe that Archview did and Portal might.

There are a number of RV parks in the area and some might suit your needs. I suggest going online and doing some research. There are many trails and I'm sure that there are some close to trails. We've stayed in a couple of places and a lot of folks had ATVs and UTVs.

Do you remember where you stayed? Won’t have the ability to trailer to and from the trails so we need to be close!

I strongly recommend that you visit the following site: https://www.discovermoab.com/atv-riding/.



They have some general information about using ATVs/UTVs in the area.

We've stayed at Spanish Trail and Moab Valley RV Parks. Moab Valley is close to the Colorado River. I would sort out the list by your TT length. Some campgrounds can't handle really long rigs. And be sure to get your reservations in soon; March thru May is their busy season.

Thanks, I’ve already looked that over. Looking for a good place to stay now.

Yeah, I’m seeing that reservations may already be a problem. My TT is 30’ and it seems most places can accommodate that, however our traveling partners are 35’ I think.

I've been going to Moab on and off since 2003, for both 4 wheeling and mountain biking. The problem you're facing is that trail access almost always requires some driving on public roads as the trail systems are scattered around Moab in all directions. Even more so if you want full hookups which means you're going to be in Moab proper or off 191 somewhere.

The good news is that Utah is one of the few states where side-by-sides etc. are street legal. The Razrs from rental companies have lights and plates and all. The link provided above has some info about out of state ATVs, if yours comply with the regulations that would be your best bet.

Edit: If you have a tow vehicle another idea is to rent a u-haul trailer or similar while you're there.

By the time we get there my UTV will have all the street legal requirements met, so hopefully we can drive on some of the paved roads to get where we want to be!

You and your companions should be good to go. Most places can accommodate up to 40'+ trailers. I was thinking that if you have a hitch-pull toy hauler, take some ramps and take the ATV/UTV to where you want to go in the back of the truck and have fun! If your bed is long enough and wide enough and you have the payload capacity, that is!

An alternative is to rent a small utility trailer that will accommodate your ATV/UTV when you arrive and use that to transport it to the trailhead. Just a thought!

If it is street-legal in your State, it will be legal in Utah.

It probably doesn't meet your criterion of being right on ATV trails, but I'm planning on booking a trip there and staying at Dead Horse Point State Park. It has hookups, cheaper state park pricing, and is reportedly one of the prettiest places around.

Good luck.

Dead Horse Point is one of the most breath-taking places to camp in Utah!!! But they only have electricity and you have to haul water for your holding tank from Moab as none is available at the park for that purpose. They do have a dump station for RVs. One other thing, too, is that it is a LONG, STEEP 8% climb up to the top from Moab with two hairpin turns. Just thought you should know.
