Rate reflects 50% Senior Pass discount. We have stayed at Squaw Flat many times and love the campground and the Needles section of the park. Some of the 26 sites are small and best suited for tents. Others, including 2 handicap sites, are long enough for practically any rig. As has been mentioned, a few sites have significant dips that require caution when backing in to avoid scraping. Sites are well separated from one another. The campground fills quickly during the spring and fall. No reservations. Overflow camping is allowed outside the park on BLM land. Water is available at the toilet facilities. Don't count on cell service, Wi-Fi, or over-the-air TV. This is a remote and beautiful area. - Desert Beacon

Beautiful, remote sites. No services, not even an electric outlet in the bathroom, so be prepared. No reservations, so only way to snag a site is to lay-up outside the park the day before and cruise around the loops at 8:30am. Loop B has smaller, closer together sites, but seem level. Loop A has the larger sites, but some, like ours slope up and had a big dip. Was a challenge not to rip off the back of the trailer, but once in, what a spot! Beautiful views and absolute peace. Ahhhhhhh. - catsinacan23FB

Under new & greatly improved management. We had a FANTASTIC experience staying at Needles Outpost over Labor Day weekend 2015. Well maintained roads, easy turn arounds, RV dump across from the bathrooms, clean level parking sites, clean grounds, clean restrooms with flush toilets and hot showers, clean office/store/gas station, and very friendly staff. Cost exactly the same for two nights camping as it would inside the park after factoring in the $10 park entrance fee. Needles Outpost had two restrooms - one for men and one for women. Two toilets, two showers, and two sinks in each. Even though they truck in the water, with our fee for a 2 night stay we got tokens for 1 shower per person in our group. Since it's the middle of the desert, the showers operate on 5 minute timers to conserve water - which has to be brought in by truck. HUGE red rock in the campground bordering all the campsites on the east side of the grounds. We took two hikes, each lasting more than an hour, up on the rock and still didn't get to explore it all. High on the rock we saw petroglyphs and were treated to fantastic 360 degree views. It was only about 3 miles from our camp site to Canyonlands N.P. Visitor Center. Thank you, new management, for a great desert camping experience. We'll be back again next year. - Sam P

Regarding earlier comments, RT 211 is a typical canyon area entry road. it has some steeper sections, but is fully paved. We had no problem getting here in our 39' motorhome. We had a nice spot in front of a bluff with lots of separation. This is dry camping, no hook ups. There is a water station where we filled our tank. The campground loop has some ruts, but go slow and they are fine. It has great access to the needles section of Canyonlands NP. Bring a jeep or be prepared to hike to enjoy the Canyonlands. The lady is a bit flaky, but we got along just fine. Good Internet access at the camp store but not from your site. We would stay here again. Cash only, no credit cards. - CharlieS

There are a few bumps in the campground, but they are no worse than the dozen or so cattle grates on the way to the Needles District. My Swarovski crystal collection survived just fine: and you know I can't leave home without that! There is some sugar sand around the dump station (gravel needed here), but the remainder of the place was fine. I thought $20/night was a little steep for a spot w/o hook-ups, even for a captured market, but it was nice to have a reservation instead of hoping for a walk-in site inside the park: a difficult proposition during peak season. - RoyGBiv

This park is in the National Park system which is about 34 miles northwest of Moab. We were actually going to stay at Deadhorse State Park and couldn't get in and were redirected to this Park, what luck. While there is no power, water or dump come prepared its a great place to have access to the south rim trail, Shafer trail and many more 4WD roads. As far as the park there is ten spots and 1 and 10 are the only ones that are big rig friendly but what a neat place to stay, we were here three days. - monaco cruiser

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

Very scenic campground, close to town of Moab. Some shade trees but mostly full sun. Patches of grass next to level campsites. - Pete M.

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

Nice park and very convenient to Moab and the National/State Parks. Only concern is that many of the sites were not very level. The shorter pull-throughs have a hump, making it difficult to level the RV and have room to park a tow vehicle behind or in front. The irrigation system had a wild spray pattern and coated both our tow vehicle and coach. After looking at several of the other campgrounds in the area, I would stay here again. - Good Vibes

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
