Called as instructions stated, was told I would be charged $42 for the site (the $25 HipCamp was “only a deposit”) or could pay $35 to his buddy “Dan” that would show me the sites.
There is no hot water in the showers, so don’t be fooled by that. It was 100 degrees during the day and the water still wasn’t even warm. Think ice cold (refreshing? Yes. But not what was promised).
The train is 50yds from the campsite; I’m a heavy sleeper but there is no sleeping through a freight train barreling through and tooting its horn every 4 hours.

This was a nice camp spot with a very beautiful view. We got in around 11:30 PM and it was very easy to find our spot and set up without having to wake anyone up to check in.

This was a nice place to camp! The camp sites are just behind the hotel and not very secluded but were clean and soft for us to stay. It is about 30-40 minute drive into Moab and a quiet part of town. The Amtrak train goes right behind the camp site a couple of times in the night and morning, but didn't disrupt us very much. Overall, I would recommend as a good place to stay near Moab for a guaranteed place in a busy part of the state!

Visited during high winds; had to adjust our site location and were given an unfit alternative; we ultimately decided to find a different area.

Has everything you need for a good night of camping. Dudes are friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Campsite could be a little better marked from the side of the road.

John is doing a great job is trying to make Desert Moon into a welcoming campground with good facilities. We found him and his helpers very kind and appreciated their efforts to improve a campground that had become quite run-down. We wish him the very best.
