If you want to wake up surrounded by canyon rims that overlook onto southern Utah’s shockingly red rocks, look no further than Dead Horse Point Campground. Towering 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, this site gives you access to Canyonlands and Arches, and has tons of small group sites in addition to three yurts. Dogs are welcome, though with all these drop-offs around, leashes are encouraged. Though it’s a desert, it rains heavily at random here sometimes (which explains the diverse plant life), so bring your tarps. There are loads of biking and four-wheeling trails, and you can head into Moab for rentals if you didn’t bring wheels (Moab is, by the way, a very charming town—try to get at least a coffee there while you’re in town).

I stumbled across this place while planning a camper road trip. At first. I was bummed I didn't book a site in Arches in time but in hindsight, I'm pretty glad we camped here.
They have electrical hook up and warm water in their bathrooms. No showers but their bathrooms had running water and are clean.
Each site has its own picnic tables and gazebo structure with a light and some storage.
No wild animals to fear for. Views were incredible. Directly overlooking the canyons. Best sites were 3 and 4. Best overlook of the canyons. 9, 8, and 7 were near the bathrooms. 6 was near the restroom but has a good view. Site 2 would prob be best to fit a large RV.

Absolutely beautiful campground. The trails are unreal and the views are incredible. BUT I MUST WARN YOU... It gets REALLY windy up there so make sure you have the proper tent and make sure it is properly staked down!

Edge of the world. No one was here yet when we camped it years ago when there was only a dirt road.

Amazing views are a short hike away from your tent. If you don't have a reservation, stop by the visitor center, we arrived around 11am and there were still some great spots available. Watch for rabbits and hummingbirds!

If you want to really get away from the hubbub of Moab, including the traffic, this is the place! It's a drive to get to, but the results are incredible. Star-gazing is fabulous from DHPSP, no light pollution. CG amenities are surprising, considering. BYO everything, as you're not going back to town if you forgot the marshmallows. Great Place! SHHHH...
