A great setup overall
I’d say I have mixed feelings about the campsite - for a little bit more you could stay at one of Joe’s structures and I think have a more enjoyable time. I think the lounge setup/ community kitchen area is nice, as is the shower!
There is wifi, it took a bit to start up and was slow, but to have wifi in general out there is a nice touch.
The road in is very rough, which Joe mentions. His directions are spot on, and he and the pups were there to greet as well.
If I stayed again, it would be in one of the trailers for sure.
We were the only guests the night of our stay. Joe met us at arrival and showed us to camp.
Kitchen was equipped with all the cookware we needed and the outhouse/shower house were clean and close to camp.
Although a ways off the main road, from IRC it was a short drive to the Needles area of Canyonlands and not far from Moab and Arches.
Would recommend for those looking to explore this part of Utah!
Look no further you found it!
You want to feel in touch with nature, be in a central location to awesome sites but not in a busy area, and want to fulfill your wanderlust vibes? Well look no further you have found it! No pitching your own tent in the dark here and accidentally hammering your toe. Joe T has your spot up and ready for your arrival. Carefully lit path to guide you at night. Don’t even get me started on the view…. You might want to skip the touristy sites and just explore here. Don’t get me started on the amazing canyon and night sky because I could write about that for days!
This campsite was awesome! Joe was super friendly and accommodating and you can tell he has put a lot of work into this place. The shower was nice and he even had a fridge and a place to charge our phones and we had plenty of privacy at our tent as well. Overall a really good place to stay for the money and I can’t recommend it enough!
Perfect camping getaway
My friend and I loved staying at this campsite! Joe was very friendly, generous, and helpful. While we were there, we met some other campers too - you would’ve thought they all had known Joe for years by their laughter and stories. Though the campsite is pretty far from the main roads, Joe’s directions were spot on. In hindsight, we would’ve rented a car that could handle off-roading a bit better but our Honda Civic made it just fine. I highly recommend this campsite!
Joe is an incredible host who offers a unique, communal camping experience - it’s a gem hidden in an already beautiful area. The off-grid setting that he’s established is nothing short of remarkable. Thank you so much for having me, I’ll definitely be back!
