21 Parks near Arches National Park, Utah

This campground is a typical national park facility. It is set in a beautiful setting, but is a LONG way from the park entrance and the town of Moab (though the drive is incredibly beautiful). The Devils Garden trailhead is nearby and some shorter trails leave right from the campground. The sites vary quite a bit, from tiny tent-only sites to pretty large sites for an RV. The "pull-through" sites are mostly just wide turnouts on the road, so before booking any site, it is a good idea to look at a satellite picture to make sure you can fit. This campground is very popular, so reservations well in advance are a must. - MrSunshine

Most scenic of any national parks in the state of Utah. Extremely clean, rest rooms and campground maintained very well. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Reservation usually necessary. Firewood sold in campground by hosts. - grizd

Monday, May 6 – Devils Garden Campground, Arches National Park, Utah This is the only developed campground in Arches with 54 sites and no hookups or showers. Make reservations because they have been full every night. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the ranger programs and the hikes from the campground. The campground is at the way end of the park road through the park. The Devils Garden trailhead starts there and it is about 8 miles in with other trails shooting off. The campground has three trails that lead off one near site 38 and also views that can be hiked to from some of the camp sites. Beautiful park with lots to do and with a senior pass it costs $10 a night. Bathhouses were clean but no showers and RV’s cannot fill up their water tanks. So much to see and do in the park. The morning we left after a thunderstorm and rainstorm some of the drives were temporary closed for fear of flashfloods but I am sure by the afternoon they must have been open again. The drive up to the viewpoints from the Visitor Center is quite steep with curves but the rest of the park is easy to drive. They do have some sites that can fit large RV’s but not many, so if making a reservation one needs to notice the site size. - gsnakehill

I also do not understand the good reviews for this park. It is so uneven, you slip trying to move around outside the rig. The sites are very built up, slope severely on three sides, and are sand. One of my jacks sunk into the ground so much it would not retract. There is no place to put chairs out to sit. There is not enough gravel or wood chips and everything is very dusty. The dog area is a hole in the fence to an unimproved area full of stickers. I removed at least 30 the only time I used it. There is nowhere else to walk your dogs and I drove them to find a place. The sites are so small everyone ends up parking in the road and you have to move when people are coming and going. Road noise is very bad. The owners are very nice and want you to be happy. That just isn't possible with the current state of the park. Cable is good. WiFi not great. - Mom and me

Unless you are desperate and have to stay here, don't. Frankly, we have NO idea how it has gotten the good ratings that it has. This is a tiny park by the side of the highway; it is nothing but gravel (and very uneven at that) for the sites and the park. There is NOWHERE to walk your dog, so unless your animal is comfortable doing its business in the rocks or the dirt, good luck!
Our site was so unlevel, we were off the ground with our jacks. Our site was so sloped that you couldn't even sit on the picnic bench provided without sliding off. With the wind that we experienced, not only was our rig coated with dust inside and out, but you could barely walk around without getting dust and dirt in your eyes, your lungs, and all over your clothes.
The only bright spot here was the staff. They were wonderful. Everyone we met could not have been more helpful or friendly. Unfortunately, they have not been given much to work with as regards this park. Our advice - find somewhere else if you can! - Tee Gysin

This was our second week-long stay here at ACT; we really like this place! As others have noted, it's not the best for big rigs due to the rise and gentle slope of the property, but for our 30-footer we have no problems--we found level on our own, but they have lots of wood planks around if you need them. The CG is just a year old and the owner/managers who created it smartly worked with the contours of the land. The place is natural and they leave it that way--gravel for the sites/loop road and wood chips (not grass; this is a desert!) in between to tamp down the natural sandiness of the area. They've left much of the natural habitat which is very nice to see, then planted more colorful drought-resistant desert plants. The trees they've planted need a few years before they'll provide adequate shade, but most CG's in this area don't have much shade either. Road noise: depending on your site, there's a bit until ~11p when it settles down, but honestly this is not a problem. [Keep in mind this is a highly-used recreational area; jeeps, 4WDs, bikes, etc.--lots of people come here because of the beauty of the place--there are going to be vehicles on the roads.] There's a nice shared kitchen space--very Euro/Aussie. The bathrooms are new and cool and well-appointed. Everything about this CG speaks to environmental consciousness and resource/land stewardship--energy-efficient buildings, recycling, Moab-cool-vibe-attitude--we're all for it and will keep coming back here!! Rate reflects pay for 6 nights; 7th night is free plus 10% G.S.; a very good deal! - Jolly Out There

This campground is quite crowded but there's a beautiful path along the creek that offers an opportunity to get away from it all. Dogs are welcome and there apparently aren't any leash rules and there is no specific dog area, so campers have to be very aware if they let their dogs off-leash to clean up. That said, I saw no problems. I kept my dogs on leash the entire time, and there is a nice off-leash park in downtown Moab. Lot spacing was very close with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was sand, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - OmakMary

We got here at ten after noon, so had to wait until one o'clock to check in. We just waited at the entrance with no problem. Some of the staff were very friendly, some not. One fellow gave us lots of ideas on trails to hike, where to drive and so on. Sites were adequate to park our 32' motorhome and the Subaru behind it. Sandy, yes, but this is Moab. Clean enough for us. We'd come back. Laundromat is only two washer with four dryers, so we went into town and did our laundry. - Red Wolf Deux

Out of downtown south on a creek with lots of shade. Had a water & electric back in it was tight @ 24ft. Some full timers but no problems , no parties or Atv action like some of the others.
If you want it all go pay $50 plus a night somewhere else .
Good Verizon cell serivce no antenna channels at all.
I'd stay here again liked the manager too. - packardrob

The park was easy to locate on Hwy 191; sites were close together, but easy in and out. Our site was gravel and dirt with a paved patio and picnic table. There is road noise since it is right on Hwy 191 and they are in the process of reconstructing their RV sites, sodding grass and planting trees that eventually will be nice. During our stay, it was very dusty and noisy. Management will not honor discounts during their "busy" season, nor will they honor them unless you ask for them--so if you visit this park, ask when you make the reservations and ask again when you arrive. We were in the area to visit national parks so we did not spent much time in the campground during the day. If we visit the area again, we will stay in one of the many other parks in Moab. - Happy Journeys

Stayed a total of 5 nights and Passport America applied for 3 nights. Park is hub for off road enthusiasts and had a great deal of atv rig trailers scattered about. Good people doing what they wanted. Large tent camping area contributed to the restroom and shower cleanliness issues. Management did their best to keep up but a lot of folks used them, including young people. A bit south of town but worth having larger sights and not being so tight as the others in town. Management was great. New owners were working very hard to make this a top tier park. - Vault

Spent 2 nights here, the staff was very friendly and helpful, bath facilities were clean, gravel site was fairly level and utilities were good. Moab is a off road vehicle destination and quite a few people in C.G. had variouse types and sizes of off road vehicles. A number of them were working on them during the day and revving up the engines with the resulting noise. A couple of them returned to camp at about midnight. The campground is also located close enough to the road to hear road noise most of the night. Due to noise I would probably try another C.G my next visit. - trav

One of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in, period. The staff are amazing, the sites are shaded and you are basically in the middle of downtown but it is quiet. If you are looking to camp in Moab, look no further than here. We will absolutely come back to this park the next time we visit. Pool, wifi, cable and the location are all great. For the reviewers that mention the "tightness" of the park, we have a 36' class A and did just fine. The navigation has more to do with inconsiderate people parking further out than they should. - scruggsfamilyRV

AS others have stated, crowded and very busy campground; obviously, because it is right in the middle of town and enjoys a ton of shade for the huge cottonwood trees they meticulously care for. Somewhat tricky entrance right next to the Texaco gas station & store but once you've done it once, you know what to look out for. Gravel driveways but spot on level concrete pads. Power, water, sewer, cable all functioned as they should. Office staff promptly processed a refund of our last day as we chose to depart a day early; no doubt there were folks waiting for a cancellation to pop up! Have to pick your times for pool, shower, and laundry usage carefully as there are sometimes large families represented in the park. - pyrthkr

Busy and crowded park, especially on weekends. Lots of ATVs, Jeeps, and mountain bikes. Centrally located in Moab, easy to walk to grocery, restaurants, shops. Easy access to Arches and Canyonlands. Nice showers. Can be difficult to navigate the park with all the additional vehicles present. Sites were mostly shady and level. WIFI was slow and unreliable. We stayed here for 4 nights in a motorhome. We would stay here again. - 76Gator

This is one of the nicer parks in the Moab area. It does not have many amenities and is geared towards adults who just need a clean, quiet park to stay in. Located south of Moab, about 50% of the sites have a shade tree which definitely helps when it's 105 deg. Utilities work fine, water pressure is high so bring a regulator. While they accept Passport America which provides a 50% savings, their reservation policies restrict the usage so check the PP America website for details. We made our reservations more than 3 days in advance so we ended up using the Good Sams discount. The sites do need some leveling but overall this park is managed and maintained well. Again, amenities are limited to washrooms, pavilion, laundry and a tiny store. This is a good basecamp for Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and is conveniently located 2 miles south of Moab. - jl2000

Very scenic campground, close to town of Moab. Some shade trees but mostly full sun. Patches of grass next to level campsites. - Pete M.
Jul 2016 - $47.00
Staff not very friendly. WiFi very terrible. Had to stand just outside office to even get 2 bars. Not funny to see so many standing outside office after closing time trying to use their cellphones.
Sprinkler system had sprayed water all over our windshield and side of motorhome even though our motorhome was nose first into the fence on northside. Site was not level.
People with dogs let their dogs poop on the lot next to us and didn't clean up after them. My husband asked the woman to clean it up and she just walked away so he went to office and gave site number of the pet owner and the office staff just shrugged it off.
Office Store had very few items.
Our front view was not pleasant as we were right upon the fence that separates the park from the storage business on north side of park. - jlfinaz

This is a gravel lot with hookups. Spaces are not level. With jacks fully down and wheels off the ground still several inches from level. Wifi useless. Many access points so signal strength good, just no bandwidth. Our space about 100 yards from highway with nothing between us and it. Roads in park is ok for a 40 foot RV, but without tow. Table was so warped that it could not be used. Staff was fine. No issues there.
Checked out places on other side of town (closer to Arches NP) and they were much nicer. - Gary man

Good location for visiting Arches and Canyonland National Parks. Staff was friendly and got me in several hours before check in giving me an extra day in the area. Interior roads are a little tight but passable. Sites have LOTS of slope front to back, bring plenty of level blocks and wheel chocks. Never could get logged onto their WiFi. - RCM11
Apr 2016 - $44.00
Not Class A friendly. Sites are very close together with narrow roads and tight turns. Large ATV crowd that have extra jeeps and trailers making passage difficult. Getting in and out of park is extremely difficult due to narrow entrance and heavy traffic. - Edward972

A older park outside of town so its very quite. We got a large level site with shade trees. Cable tv was good and the wifi worked great for us. Pretty views surround the park. We stayed here 2 nights while we explored the area. - Tredguy

Level gravel sites with shade trees. Gorgeous view of red rock mountains from campsites. Nice picnic table and grassy area with most sites. - Breeze On
May 2016 - $40.00
This park is a solid 7. A bit south of town which keeps it quiet. Slow wifi but ok cable. Some sites are short which requires parking your rig at an angle to make it fit. Helpful and friendly office staff. Rest rooms were clean but somewhat dated and only 2 stalls and 2 showers in each for the entire campground. Good reasonably priced laundry facilities. Would stay there again. A bit pricey but so are all the campgrounds in Moab. - AZJC

This review is about the "campground" portion of the park not the resort.
The sites are crushed gravel with a small concrete patio for the picnic table. Most of the sites are pull through. If better level our site would have accommodated the RV and Toad at 50 feet. The "resort/owners" section appears to be very nice. Overall, I would try a different park when in the area again.
Great location just north of Moab makes it quiet but convenient.
Some shade. Utilities worked as expected.
Better than normal WiFi and for ATT and Verizon
Dog area is great. Grass with a bench and shade trees.
The restrooms in the permanent structure do not include showers and are not air conditioned. Today it is 105 in Moab.
They have brought in a trailer with portal shower/toilets. It has three stalls. Each with a toilet and shower. It is air conditioned but the smell in the three stalls is wretched.
The Swimming Pond is in no way a substitute for a swimming pool. Again 105 in Moab today.
The Laundry facilities are lacking with the ceiling partly falling down.
The first three rows of pull through sites slope back to front so much that my levelers could not get the front end high enough even with both wheels off the ground. We had ramps and pads so it worked out for us but others will have issues.
Site spacing can be tight. One night we had a travel trailer with a deep slide on our patio side. His slide extended over onto our patio concrete. - BamaGradx2

We stayed only one night in the resort section of this park. The spaces are directly west, so afternoon sun is hot until it is low enough to be blocked by the mountain or the trees. That is my only complaint. Otherwise it is just beautiful. Spacious streets, a pergola over a dining table was on our space. A water feature that was loaded with croaking frogs at night, very pretty accent lighting. Loved it, can't wait to return. Nice pool. Nice dog enclosure with thick grass and a gravel walk next to the fence. - Hoxiesgirl

We have been coming here for four years now and they continue to make improvements every year. The park is two sections...older and newer. The older section has more shade with gravel sites. The newer section is paved with cement pads and some with a trellis that covers the picnic table. The park is clean with water features throughout. Moab is a hikers dream and is known for it's Jeep. Bike and ATV trails. The views of the surrounding mountains from the park is special. Portal is by far the best park in the area and is located about two miles from Arches N.P. - LarryLS

People in the office were very helpful and gave us suggestions for the area.. The location is excellent to visit Arches National Park and Canyonsland National Park. There needs to be some improvement in bathroom/shower cleanliness. - Ginny and Bruce
May 2016 - $46.00
This is an older park. It has lots of trees and full hookups. The sites are a little tight, considering the trees but our 33' and our friends 40' fit in fine. We say some larger rigs that had a hard time getting in and out of their spaces. The wifi does not work unless you sit by the office. There is a pool and hot tubs. The park does not enforce the rules regarding no children under 16 in the hot tubs or those regarding adult supervision of children in the pool area. We would stay in the park again as it was a good value for the Moab area. - HS R.

Pull through sites are dirt/ground with little space. The bathrooms were dirty with mold on the wooden doors and walls. No soap of any type was available for washing hands after bathroom use. The office staff was helpful in
collecting 2nd night's fee immediately but that was the extent of the help. There is no management available to maintain Quiet/Sleeping or the open flame near propane tanks after 8PM. This campground is a disaster waiting to happen. Management wants campers to call Moab Police to maintain the park's policies on quiet times.Asked for a refund of 2nd night due to noise till3am. I was told since "I" called the office instead of calling the police I could not have a refund. Stay here if you like to party....if you like to sleep at night go elsewhere. - Anne K
