The only thing that might make your eyes water at Lower Onion Creek are the spectacular views of Moab’s ancient desert landscape. In the heart of the Richardson Amphitheater, the vistas from this camping area prove to be an orchestra of desert beauty. Your eyes will gaze up the red rock formations of Fisher Towers and wander down the curving tranquil waters of the Colorado River corridor, all from the comfort of your shady campsite.

This was a great secluded campground. Tucked in away from HWY 128 with great access to the Colorado River. The sunset was beautiful. 360 degrees of breathtaking formations that were beautifully silhouetted.

Pros: Sites were very large and there was hardly anyone around.
Cons: Bathrooms were very primitive and there was absolutely not protection from the weather.

During the day, there’s no better view of the Colorado River and surrounding formations, and at night, be sure to take a look at the sky. This campground has that secluded feel, but is an easy 20 minutes drive down the River Road from Moab.
