Very nice commercial RV park if a bit pricey. It's back from the highway, so little road noise. Sites are roomy. It's divided into two parts, the resort side and the campground side, where we stayed. Most of the people camped here were in big motor homes and fifth wheels. It's very convenient to get to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Oddly they are separate, which is kind of inconvenient. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Truck Camper.

The sites in the resort side are very nice, level concrete, wide, with a covered patio, but you pay for what you get. If they are worth the price depends on what you plan to do while there, i. e. if planning to see the sights, parks, and hike during the day, why pay the premium when you're not there. If you plan to use the pool and hot tub and sit out on the patio, maybe they are worth the price. The sites in the other part of the park are very close. Cable TV is very good with open look to the sky for satellite. Utilities worked well and are appropriately sited. We would probably stay elsewhere next time to save a little. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here only one night and didn't use amenities like the pool, so our review may not be complete. But sites were clean, well maintained, with patio and picnic table. Most of the rigs here were larger Class As. It seemed to offer larger, nicer spaces than other campgrounds in Moab. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Slow down when entering the driveway. With several driveways nearby, its hard to tell which is for the campground, and the entry roadway is a little rough.

This is a resort primarily full of high end huge motorhomes. Half of the park has concrete driveways, huge sites, and a private pool; it's similar to the price of a cheap hotel. The other half costs less (still more than we have paid for any other RV site in well over 40 states) and has gravel sites, close together. Well maintained with wide asphalt roads, especially nice for large rvs. Nice outer areas for walking dogs on leash, plus 2 dog parks). We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I stayed in the Resort section which is kept immaculate. The sites are very large concrete pads including the patio and generous parking area for Toad or Tow vehicles. The non-pull-through sites are pull-in head first. There is a separate pool and hot tub for the resort area, which was good because the main pool was closed for repair/construction. It is only a few miles south of Arches NP and a couple miles north of downtown Moab, so it is perfectly located. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the premium side of the park which consists of sites that are privately owned and rented out when not in use. Our site was very spacious with a parking spot and a covered patio, though not all of the spots have shaded patios. The landscaping was very nice and the park was quiet. The pool was only available for the premium sites which is why we stayed on that side. It was very nice and not very busy. We had it to ourselves every time we went. It's a great way to cool off in the Moab heat. The pool for the other side is almost done and will be opening soon. There was an off-leash dog park on each side. We had 4 bars of 4G with ATT, but didn't use it as the park WiFi was very good. The only ding I would give is that the cable is pretty fuzzy. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come again. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There's a great paved bike trail that you can access right across the highway from the park. One branch runs along the Colorado River for a couple of miles and the other branch goes along the highway past the entrance to Arches National Park. The park doesn't want you to use the WiFi for downloading, which is to be expected, so if you need to download, head into town to the library. They have the fastest public WiFi we've encountered in our many stops.

Nice place to stay. The park was in two sections and we stayed on the resort side. Paved streets and pads were nice! Pool was refreshing as well as the hot tub. Bath houses were very nice! WiFi was great as we both work from home and on the road using our laptops! And close to town. Would stay here again. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Streets are wide and very accessible, we stayed on the resort side of the park. The other side had gravel sites where we had full concrete pads as well as the parking area. Covered patio which was a nice feature given the heat in Moab. If I ding this resort it was the pool, it was in real need of cleaning, not much shade at all and just not appealing to use.

This park was truly a resort. It campground roads were asphalt and the common areas were well manicured. The swimming pool was beautiful and used a salt filter system with adequate space for a family to have enough room. Our site was a pull forward, with space in the rear for our tow vehicle. The site was beautifully landscaped and well manicured including a Koi pond. We enjoyed sitting under the covered patio with comfortable table and chairs. I used the laundry facility that was clean with new washers and dryers. The resort was conveniently located to Arches National Park and the town of Moab, Utah. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
