Colorado River, Fisher Towers, Castle Rock, oh my! Located in the heart of the Richardson Amphitheatre, the group sites at Upper Onion Creek will have your eyes watering as you take in all the impressive vistas. Trotting along beneath the sandstone cliffs, you’ll imagine you and your fellow horsemen (and women!) are pioneers exploring the Wild West. Stay out on the trails till the sun sets over the canyon, set up the horses at the corral, and spend the evening soaking in the landscape while cooking up a well-deserved cowboy feast.

Stake your tent down very well, as it can get very windy during the day. I thought I had mine in the ground pretty well, but it still wound up blowing away! A kind neighbor went and retrieved it and re-staked it for us,

This can be THE location that you base your Utah adventures out of. Upper Onion Creek is within spitting distance of super formations like the Titan, Delicate Arch, and the entirety of Castle Valley. I've been here three times, and every time it's been quiet and fairly distant from the tourist noise of Moab. The 2WD road to get there is very accessible, so no worries about that regardless of what you're driving!

This is a beautiful place to camp, off the beaten path so you will avoid most of the tourists visiting Moab. There are 10 more established campsites across the dirt road from groups sites A & B. Road is well maintained and most cars should be able to make it to these campsites. They do fill up on holiday weekends so get there early!
