We stayed here when we visited Arches and Canyonlands. The campground is back off of 191 and quiet, no road noise. It has 2 sections that flow into each other. A regular section and a Premium section where they say the sites are privately owned and rented out. We stayed in the Premium section which we felt the prices were too high. Yes, we did have a concrete pad. All the sites were spacious for both areas. The Premium section had it's own pool which we didn't use, looked clean. The restrooms and showers were very clean for both sections. The regular section has a pool in the process of being built. Their web site said it would be finished this spring, it's not finished. There are 2 swimming holes, one for pets and one for people. Both have a very unattractive farm wire fence. Not appealing at all. In the Premium section, the initial part started out great looking , this is what you see on their web site, but as you went further out into it the Premium sites the vegetation was less and the drip system was barely working. Also behind the Premium sites is a gravel area for a trailer storage lot, very unattractive. There's also a marshy area behind the property - very buggy and too dangerous if your kids wander. There are 2 dog parks and the solar lighting in the smaller one is very dim and the no lighting for the larger one. People also don't clean up after their dogs. The park has lots of rules, they don't enforce. Would we stay here again, maybe. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a difficult campground to rate. It's really two campgrounds adjacent to each other. We stayed in the resort side and it was top notch. Very well laid out, maintained, landscaped, long concrete pads. Just beautiful. But pricey. Thus the 7 rating. Then there was the normal campground. Sites were close to each other. Noticeable lack of grounds maintenance. Some minor construction. Two unappealing ponds ... one for kids, one for dogs. It was not an attractive campground. Thus the 7 rating. Close proximity to downtown Moab though. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

My wife and I stayed on the "resort" side of this RV park. That means our sites were cement, very very long and wide, and wonderful plants and trees. We also had access to the resort side pool and hot tub. The folks running the place were very helpful and kind. The cable TV worked great as did the WIFI (you are advised that the WIFI is not for downloading or streaming and they do monitor and disconnect you for any violation). We used the laundry room which had new machines which worked good. They could use to put up a hanging bar in the laundry room to help make things easier. Overall it was a wonderful stay. But if we stay here again, we will save about 20 bucks a night and not stay on the resort side. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful park (we stayed in the resort area vs the park area). The normal park sites were very close together. The resort area sites are very spacious. Beautifully manicured place with very nice people. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the campground side in the partial hook-up sites. Campground is clean ,restroom and showers look like they are new, very clean. Park is in a great location to see Arches and all the other areas around Moab. My only complaint is all the ATV's that drive around the campground, Moab is full of ATV's so I guess its something you have to live with. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed on the resort side in 40 ft MH for 6 days. This is a lovely park (resort) but even the regular RV park is nice. It is close to the parks and to town. Definitely will return. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed several days on the Resort side since that was the only space available, and we had to move slots after 3 days. While our site is listed as a pull through, the exit is blocked by boulders (R48). The park is nice, clean and located on the North side of Moab which makes for easy commute to Arches and Canyonlands. The two sides aren't well delineated and it seems odd (silly) that they have separate privelages. While the park is nice, it's rather pricey. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

There are actually two parks within this park. The first is an owner type Park but they do have spaces to rent but you must meet strict requirements for your motorhome or 5th wheel. We stayed in the campground. Seemed a little weird to have special services for the resort people and kind of treated other people like second-class individuals. Other than that our site was nice and level it was a back in sight had 50 amp service sewer and great water pressure. The wi-fi at this park is one of the few that works relatively well. A few of the other campers we're fairly rude as far as noise and late night activities. One thing about Park is on event weekends it can get very noisy. I imagine all the parks in the area can get loud with all the ATVs and so on. Another negative thing about this park and various other Parks throughout getting in and out of the park on the weekend can be very intense. Traffic is very very heavy in Moab and the infrastructure does not meet the demand for the people in the area. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

There are a lot of restaurants in Moab which gives you quite a different variety of foods. However on weekends getting into a restaurant may involve quite a wait.

We had two different stays in two weeks in the plebeian part of the park (There is an extra fancy section but mere travel trailers don't qualify). This is a very nice but fairly expensive RV Park. While the spaces are tight I can't say they are too tight. Our first site had reversed polarity for the electric but the CG had an alternative for us that was fine. Second sit had no such problem. The staff is friendly and really stays on top of cleanliness. You would expect that at these prices and you get it. Unusual for a CG, they have a small gym and even had pilates classes that we took advantage of. We did snoop around Moab and didn't see another CG that we'd rather be in. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Big changes at Portal! We've stayed here several times and it keeps getting better. There is a new office that has a very nice gym with all the equipment one could want and a new pool and spa being completed. The pool is for the campground section and I'm sure will see plenty of use during the hot season. Our favorite thing here is the pond that the dogs use, crystal clear and spring fed, our dog swims every day and absolutely loves it. Also, after staying in other RV parks in the area, we really appreciate how quiet it is as it's set well off the highway....no truck noise! We requested the same spot as last year (R57) on the resort side and were very happy that the pergola now has a solid roof on it, and screening around it, so it's cool and shady. Also, tons of room for our Jeep and pickup. We come here for the mountain biking, but hanging out in our hammocks under the pergola checking out the view is pretty nice too! We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

This place seems overpriced, although it does have cable. Great red rock views all around. We didn't even bother with the crowded national parks, and just enjoyed the red rocks from the campground. Looks like a pool and spa is being constructed right now.

There is a strange division between the rich "resort" side of the park and the poor "campground" side of the park. You are not allowed to use pool at the resort side if you're on the campground side. Paved sites available on the resort side. The only complaint I have about this place is the price.

Nice dog park in the back of park with great views. Also a swimming pond for humans, and one for dogs. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park has 2 sections-a campground side and a resort side. The resort side has huge concert pads some with patios and pergolas. Some pull in and some pull through. Manicured grounds. New reception and club in progress of completion. New laundry. Great place to base yourself on Moab. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at Portal and first time in the campground section. While not as nice and with smaller sites then the resort section, it wasn't bad. The sites are pretty narrow with very close neighbors, but no worse than most private campgrounds. It is a very convenient location to visit the many state and national parks in the area (and to do some jeeping !). There are two rows of full hookup 50amp pull throughs, one row of full hookup 30 amp pull throughs, and one row of full hookup 50 amp back ins. We preferred the back in sites as there was a bit more space between them and there was a grassy strip behind (the only non gravel area in the campground section). As before, the hilight for the dogs was the very dog friendly swimming hole with pretty clear/clean water. All sites are mostly level and long enough for big rigs. A couple of dings....the roads are gravel and drivers do not obey the speed limit so there is a lot of dust which gets kicked up. The owners are pretty fond of their plants, so don't let them see your dog peeing on any. This will remain our location when visiting the area, but mainly because of the swimming hole for the dogs. Reservations are suggested as they do host rally's and it is a popular spot. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
