Great location for a Moab trip. Less than 30 minutes to Arches, Dead Horse, and Canyonlands. Terrific high desert views and even a little nice hiking trail on the grounds.

Camping here is INCREDIBLE. The views are unreal if you get a good spot. It's first come first serve so show up earlier in the day and pay for your spot and leave some things out to mark that it's taken. There isn't much tree cover but it gets breezy at night. This is a great spot if you are visiting Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point. I would also recommend mountain biking or hiking in Dead Horse Point. The whole trail has amazing views.

Good location for access to Moab, Arches, Dead Horse Point State Park and Canyonlands. The campground is quite large so expect of have company while camping here. Lots of BLM land to explore around this area as well!
