Come camp Where The Wild Things Camp! Let the awe-inspiring views of the majestic slick rock, sage and juniper surround you in the peace and quiet of this beautifully secluded desert space. Centrally located to the best Canyonlands has to offer, our camp is located on 25 acres less than half a mile from Looking Glass Arch, a popular rock climbing destination which got its name from the conquistadors who would climb to the top and look through a “looking glass” for landmarks that would lead them back to Santa Fe. Moab is 25 miles to our North, about a 30 minute drive. The nearest convenience store/gas station is in the tiny town of La Sal, 12 miles NE of us. The nearby La Sal mountains rise to over 12,000 in elevation and is a great place to get out of the heat and enjoy lakes surrounded by beautiful pine and aspen forests. As the name suggests, Where The Wild Things Camp truly is wild and not for everyone. We are off grid, meaning there is NO electricity, no drinking water, its often windy (thank goodness for ALL the trees) but there is “spotty” cell phone service. Treat yourself to dinner next door at ULUM, a 5-star resort with a restaurant and bar! Make sure to check the weather forecast before coming out and be prepared for anything as the weather here in the desert can be unpredictable. Porta-Potty's available. PLEASE PRACTICE PACK-IT-IN AND PACK-IT-OUT. NON-AGGRESSIVE dogs are always welcome, however please keep in mind that a lot of our wild friends also live here, such as coyotes, rattlesnakes, deer and antelope. We wouldn’t want your pets or our friends harmed in any way! From Moab: Drive south on Hwy 191 for approximately 23 miles and turn right (east) onto Looking Glass Rd/Co. Rd. 131 (It will be the first right after La Sal Junction) Continue on this road for 1.4 miles until you see a wide gravel road branching off to the left. Turn left, this road will branch again in .03 miles, turn to the right (before entering ULUM) and continue straight (another .5 mile to WHERE THE WILD THINGS CAMP!! From Monticello: Drive north on Hwy 191 for approximately 31 miles and turn left onto Looking Glass Rd/Co. Rd 131 (It will be the first left after Wilson Arch). https://earth.google.com/earth/d/1LNE4WnnOSypbZmVX_Z1uOCCNpkMgFDdl?usp=sharing Moab: 25 miles Canyon Rims Recreation Area: 12 miles La Sal: 12 miles Monticello: 33 miles Blanding: 54 miles Bluff: 79 miles Mexican Hat: 104 miles Monument Valley: 126 miles

A friend and I tent camped here and it was perfect! Beautiful views, wide open skies, and a friendly host. It was close to Moab but far enough away that you were away from the noise. Absolutely would stay here again!

This site was everything and more we could have ever imagined. Sean came to check up on me and my partner, Kyle our first night and made sure we had what we needed. The views were incredible and the site was quiet and private. We will absolutely come back in the future.

Great spot to camp for the night!
Great quiet spot other than the rooster but I personally enjoyed that. The caretakers are very nice and provide plenty of firewood. Toilet also was not atrocious. I had no complaints, I would definitely recommend.

We loved to view of Looking Glass Arch and all the options for walking around and enjoying the desert. It’s nice to have a place to camp close to Moab without being in all the action. The road was in great condition and easy to get to in my AWD matrix. Only enough space for one or two tents at the site. But that fit us perfectly! It was mentioned to us that they are flattening out more tent spots however, for the spring.
