A great campground. Plenty of room and level sites. We were here during one of Moab's busiest weekends of the spring and the campground was completely full. But it was still quiet overnight and we never felt crowded as there's lot's of room between spaces. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground in my opinion, one of the best that BLM offers in this area. Spacious sites for different lengths, lots of restrooms, and great views. It is a dry camping area with no water, dumping, or electric. With a rate of $6 for seniors with Golden Age Pass, it's hard to beat the price. It's a short distance to Dead Horse Point State Park where the rates are 3-5x higher. This makes a good day trip by bicycle or car from here (seven miles away). Bravo to the BLM for providing such campgrounds in an area where commercial campgrounds in Moab are expensive ($35 on average). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location, beautiful setting, quiet spot. No hookups and no water to be found. This is definitely the definition of a primitive site. Our water tank is small, so even without showering, we were out on our third day. Bear that in mind if traveling with a smaller trailer, especially as the closest town Moab, is about an half an hour's drive. There are vault toilets, though, and a dumpster for trash. Location wise, Horse thief has great access to Canyonlands and Dead Horse. We didn't see a ranger the entire time we were here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground host was very helpful and runs a very tight ship here; he even suggested Jeep trails we could try with our stock Liberty. He patrols the park numerous times a day to make sure things are fine for all of the guests. He will give anyone the boot if they are clearly breaking the rules. This is dry camping at its finest: come to the park with your water tank full and your other tanks empty if you plan to stay for a while. We stayed in our 38 ft motorhome with our Jeep towed and had plenty of room in one of the larger sites. We definitely would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend because everything else was full. This campground filled up also. It had about 60 to 70 sites. It is located on Rt 313 before you get to Dead Horse Point State Park. The park had lots of ATVs but they were respectful and drove very slowly through the park. The park was very dusty and the wind blew all the time we were here. The camp host is very helpful and actually does his job. He is a very nice fellow. He also maintains a hiking trail adjacent to the campground. It is a beautiful walk. I would stay here again in a pinch but it wouldn't be my first choice because it is completely dry. There is no water, dump or showers. It has pit toilets. Well maintained, however. We camped here in a Motorhome.
