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.

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.

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.

We had stayed at Portal 2 years ago and were looking forward to staying there again. Many things stayed the same. Nice sites, clean bathrooms, good location, but something had changed. We felt alienated as a renter in an ownership resort. This started during checkin when we were told any damage to the lot would be a minimum of a $150 charge. Then we all had to wear orange bands while in the park. We saw no other orange bands, so I assume all others at the pool were owners. And the "others" didn't talk to us. We own 2 lots a one of the premier ownership parks in the country. We do not make renters wear bands. We go out of our way to be nice to renters. Why? Because they are your next owners. We did not experience this level of segregation 2 years ago. We will find another nice place to stay next time we're in Moab. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the resort half of the campground in a very nice site. It was wide enough that we could park our car next to the RV, as though we had 2 spots. There were plantings and a swing. The park is very dog friendly -- 2 nice sized runs and a dog pond. It has views of the red cliffs -- very pretty, especially at sunset. The laundry room was clean and had quite a few machines, although the dryer took forever. The one problem was the smell of horse manure in the evening. I don't know if that's actually what it was because the only 2 horses we saw were a large field away and contained, but there was an odor. Nevertheless, we would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice RV Park with nice owners about a mile north of downtown Moab and just a couple miles south of Arches NP. We stayed on the RV park side, there is also a owner's resort side that can be used when available for a higher nightly rate. RV park side has a small swimming pond, resort side has a pool. There is a small, older playground for kids. The bathrooms we used were very clean and nice. Good experience and good park overall to do the things around Moab. Seems a little pricey for what it is, but pricing seemed on par for Moab. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As noted this is 2 parks. The resort is very plush with wide spaces. the campground is a little less so. You are on crushed stone and the sites fit a 45 ft MH but your car has to park sideways in the front or back of your rig. This is OK but the alleyways are not overly wide so the issue is how easy is it to get in or out of the site with your coach. We disconnected prior to going to the site and connected up after leaving the park on the entrance road just to avoid any problems. Other than the size issues the park was nice and handy to use as a base camp. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

There are two sections at this park. The campground was decent, but no grass and gravel sites with limited greenery. The resort section where we stayed was very nice with some lovely landscaping, some grass and trees, wide concrete sites, and a pool and hot tub. Very dog friendly with two dog off leash areas, the larger one in the resort section is for use by resort renters/owners with nice grass, but the campground location was decent as well. The best thing about Portal is a very large clean fresh water pond that the dogs can use. And our guys used it every day! A couple of complaints though. The Koi pond was very dirty and smelt bad. The sites are pretty close together and our neighbor had a party every night we were there, but that's the luck of the draw. The rest of the residents were pretty quiet. The price is more than we're used to paying, but it's a nice park in a great location, so we'll be back. I'd recommend the resort section over the campground for the extra money if you can get in. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the resort section, not the campground. This is for the resort only. The resort has all-paved lots, some with pergolas, which are very large. Our site (M17) was very private and backed up to a field where horses would visit us often (we loved it). We also had a lot of shade thanks to the house next door. The site was huge and we had tons of room for the tow vehicle. The downside of our site was no pergola and no view. The upside of staying at the resort was the pool (small but nice), the koi pond and the dog run. This is probably the nicest dog run we've seen at any resort, with shaded benches and lots of green lush grass (the other dog run in the campground side was about a quarter of the size and not as nice). This was the highlight of our dogs' day, twice per day. The park isn't large so isn't crowded. The biggest downside of the entire place was absolutely no campfires.We love that part of camping and couldn't enjoy the outdoors as much as we would've liked. The signage in front of the park is practically non-existent and within the resort non-existent. If staying at the resort, ask for the M section versus the R section. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
