Moab, Utah has long been an adventure destination that is close enough to our Colorado home that we visit frequently. There are many camping options in Moab. You can make a reservation at one of the many RV parks in town, dry camp at a few established first come fist serve campgrounds or boondock out in the desert. The fist come fist serve campgrounds fill up quickly in the Spring and Fall so arrive on a weekday if possible. There are two National Parks in Moab: Arches and Canyonlands. Arches is almost always booked many months in advance and the campground in Canyonlands is first come fist serve.
We stayed at Sand Flats Campground which is not far from town. Sand Flats consist of many camping loops and is home to the infamous Slick Rock and Poison Spider trailheads. The camping here is dry so be sure to bring plenty of water and provision rebore heading to the campground. There is a kiosk at the entrance to the campground were you pay your fees. I There are pit toilets but no other facilities. The rock formations were great fun to climb on and we were able to get cell service at the top of some rocks.
There seems to be endless options for the adventure enthusiast in Moab: mounting biking, rafting, hiking, sky diving and jeeping. The central part of town burst with activity with restaurants, bars, food trucks, adventure tour guides, bike shops, and jeep rental agencies. The heat is extreme in the summer months but quite pleasant in the Spring and Fall and cool in the Winter.
