We pulled in and out in our campervan. The place is just a strip of gravel and sand right next to the road the size of a parking spot. The most depressing camp spot I have seen. We didn’t stay for mor then a couple of minutes so can’t say anything else about the place

I pulled up to find a bunch of broken down abandoned buildings (think weathered wooden buildings with collapsed porches, no windows, and sunken -in doors with "keep out" and "no trespassing" signs. In the middle was a building with a sign showing the number to call to check in. There was a mix of RVs that looked occupied and others that looks discarded. The "tent" area was shoved behind that building and was just a space between discarded buildings and junk. I have traveled the world solo and rarely have I walked away from a booking (hotel, hostel, campsite) but there was no way I was staying there. It did not feel welcoming or safe, especially not for tent camping. I ended up eating the cost and driving another 90 minutes to a BLM site that thankfully had an opening on a Friday afternoon. HipCamp offered me 20% off my next stay when I contacted them. I've managed to find campgrounds myself in several countries without their "help" and after this experience and losing $38 on this one I won't be using their services ever again.

Some of the RVs looked like people were just living there. Not a campsite more a trailer park Tent area was between these two buildings Pictures I took on way out. Broken windows and doors on this one and this wasn't the worst

I loved the Desert Moon! It's a cute little space. I love the murals in the bath-houses. They have stringlights in all the little trees and its such a nice aesthetic. Everyone who worked there was really friendly. They also had lots of pet friends on the property. I made friends with a cute black cat. Someone else even had pet ravens!
There was a food truck on site so we were able to get dinner when I was too tired to fire up my camp stove. There's some cool stuff nearby in Sego canyon too, just up the road. There's ancient petroglyphs and the old abandoned ruins of an early 1900's mining town.

Tips: There's no a lot of shade so bring a canopy! The ground is hard so bring a mallet to stake your tent down!

Camp sites were cute and had everything you needed and the Dessert Spoon food truck makes delicious burgers. Not too far from some really cool petroglyphs so it makes for a perfect spot to go into Canyonlands and Arches national parks.

Very cool, laid back place with good amenities. I think the weather was a little unusual when we went but be advised it can get windy. Our neighbors were nice and we loved meeting the desert cats!

Given the many positive reviews of this camp site, we were disappointed with our experience. While the site did have restrooms and showers, they looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in months. The campsite was slanted, uneven, entirely dirt and provided no natural cover. When we returned to the site on our second night, the winds were up to 55mph and had been throughout the day. The inside of our tent was entirely filled with dirt, despite having a cover secured over it. Additionally, one of our tent poles snapped and another person’s tent next to us completely collapsed. While the owner cannot control the wind, he could have avoided flying past us on his 4 wheeler kicking up an insane amount of dirt, which was the only contact we had with him. Because the conditions were so bad with the wind and the dirt, we ended up having to leave that night to find another place to stay.
