Hi Folks, were going to be in Moab around October 1st and need recommendations on a good campground as this is our first trip to Moab. The rigs are a 36 ft TT and 34 ft fiver. Full hookups only. TIA.

Any good site/attractions would be nice too although we hear most is closed right now.

Look into Deadhorse State Park. This is about 30 mins west of Moab but a really spectacular State Park. Great campsites and the view from the overlook is unbelievable. Even if youo don't stay there, it's worth a day visit.

Not sure they have full hookups but definately electric with dump station.

If Deadhorse SP is full, we have used Horse Thief, a BLM campground on the road into Deadhorse.

https://www.moabrimcampark.com/rv-sites.htm Is where we stayed last year. I kind of put all of them on the wall and threw darts and hit this one.

It is nothing spectacular. Average sites, very clean, most have plenty of room for toad parking. We ended up with the one of the few that didn't have sewer but I knew that when I made reservations. Sits up on a little hill above the road, traffic noise during the day but no big deal for us. Besides, we were out during the day and the night traffic is light.

The managers are great, he is a kick to BS with with a interesting background.

Hit the Moab Dinner in downtown. Usual hamburgers and stuff with a surprisingly large menu. Decent prices. Also the Moab Brewery on the south end of town. Came recommended but for some reason didn't make it. Moab Grill is another decent place that won't break the bank. Decent steak. Ate their 18 years ago and we had to try it again. Wasn't disappointed.

The Maverick station at the south end of town handy place for fuel. Separate large vehicle pumps and you can go around the station to enter/exit.

Canyonlands NP is nice, Entrance to it is north of Arches 15 (?) miles. Better views than most of Grand Canyon IMO.

Hope that you are going to hit Bryce Canyon. I would go back there in a heartbeat.

That looks like the Grand Canyon.

It is Deadhorse S.P. Look again and you see a road near the river. Grand Canyon does NOT have a road.

We stayed at Archview Campground last year. It is full hook up. About 10 mi. north of Moab. It allowed us to ride dirtbikes and ATV out of campground without plates. That may not be important to you.

Dead Horse Point is electric only in both campgrounds. No water available at the park - they have to truck in all water, so request that you use as little as possible at the restrooms. While there are a few first come sites, most are reservable, and all are usually full.
