Description

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.

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).

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...

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!
