I rated this a "7" because I expect a perfect campground for a "10". This has no pads, patios, it's dusty. That said, it is in the perfect location, and, well-priced. We come here every time we are near. Don't be put off if online they say there are no sites available. We called the www.recreation.gov site and got a site for a day later due to their requirement for a one-day advance notice. We came anyway and found a note on the entrance gate that there was a site open in Watchman, and we got it.

I agree with most of the comments of recent reviewers (except we didn't find the highway noise bothersome), but I told the nice manager I would submit a review.....Oh well......

There are many campgrounds in Moab; all expensive. This is a Passport America, making it an easy choice. Besides, it is nice and well kept. The only downside is highway 191 that runs past *everything* in Moab. Lotsa trucks, too. It is a ways out of downtown...quieter than many, but a little remote. BTW, I forgot my PPA card when we checked in, but they honored it the next day....nice. We have been here twice before and always return.

Even though there are no pads,patios, or shade, we couldn't find anything else wrong. This is a nice, comfortable, quiet even for a Friday nite campground. Big sites and many small amenities. I must say, though, we were there at the start of school and it was unseasonably cool. There is a tornado shelter, too.

Comfortable, laid-back campground. No pads or patios. River access limited due to high bluff. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Not sure it qualifies for Big Rig. Our 38' rig towing just barely fit. Good for overnight stay...maybe more. We would stay there again.

We just stayed overnight and the campground was really nice. For one-nighters, it was a little far from I-40. Great for families. Sites were large and attractive. The roads and site pads were paved. The only drawback was that the roads were rather tight for a 38' RV towing a car.

The June 2008 review is what I would say; we also have been coming here for many years and seen it progress. It now has 50-amp power, a picnic shelter, new picnic tables, and added a small bath house (two rooms, each with a toilet, lavatory, and a shower.)

Date of Stay:

We have nothing bad to say about this campground. It would be a 10 if it had water and sewer. It is a very attractive campground with level cement pads on the 50 amp sites. I thought of a small problem: Verizon has "Extended Network" service here. We loved it and would definitely come again.

Trees are low-hanging, but negotiable. Nice campground, but overpriced for an overnite... but...it is the only campground around. The office doesn't often answer their phone; left two messages but never got a return call. The office also was reluctant to offer any assistance to problems I was having after we got there. Also, closed the office before closing time. We probably would try to avoid coming here again.

Nice campground with lots to do. Quiet and peaceful during the week. Lots of activity on the weekend. Fairly good access. The problem we ran into is that the non-grassy sites are really messy with pine straw. It was wet when we were there and tracking into the RV was a mess. We had some confusion about our reservations, but they rectified the problem easily. We would come here again. Our dog knows campgrounds...she liked this one.

A really lovely place, but not very accessible for a big rig. Once you get in the campground, the sites are large and randomly placed it seemed. Lots of city park-like things to do, but it never seems crowded. WiFi is iffy. We would stay here again.

Not fancy, but comfortable. You can even overlook the fact you are next to a State Road highway. No pads or patios. OK for one or two nights. We would stay there again.

This is a small, very peaceful park; one of those parks you are comfortable in from the start. The tenants, owners, and park employees were nice and helpful. Many of the tenants are workers at the local nuclear plant, and generally stay a month-or-more. The $12 rate reflects the monthly rate. We were charged $25 extra for water usage because we had/used our own board washer and dryer. There are no pads or patios; something for which I lower my rating. Many of the lots are not completely level; I had my front wheels almost off the ground, but a park employee had a wooden step there almost before I shut my engine off. US-1 highway is close, but not a factor. I would recommend this park.

(These are comments for a one-night stay) The campground was an 8 or 9 for us, but the getting-there was a little more difficult. Although the roads into the campground were newly paved, it took us 18 minutes to get the 6.5 curvy miles from the Interstate to the campground. That was a little more than the map-shown 4 miles, and for a one-night stay, a little far. The host was very pleasant and helpful. We wouldn't probably do an over nighter again, but would for an extended stay.
