Primitive campers, hikers, and climbers should put Upper Big Bend camping area on the top of their lists for their next Moab excursion. A 15-20 minute drive from hiking trails and exploration opportunities in Moab and Arches N.P. makes this camping spot a major plus for those looking to put some miles on their boots. Rock climbers will be running from their tents to the nearby routes on the Big Bed Bouldering circuit, knowing that they have a cozy sleeping bag and a night sky full of stars to come back to at the end of a day spent at the crag.
