The vibe at Upper Onion Creek Campground
Drop some Upper Onion Creek Campground knowledge on us.
This is a beautiful place to camp, off the beaten path so you will avoid most of the tourists visiting Moab. There are 10 more established campsites across the dirt road from groups sites A & B. Road is well maintained and most cars should be able to make it to these campsites. They do fill up on holiday weekends so get there early!
This can be THE location that you base your Utah adventures out of. Upper Onion Creek is within spitting distance of super formations like the Titan, Delicate Arch, and the entirety of Castle Valley. I've been here three times, and every time it's been quiet and fairly distant from the tourist noise of Moab. The 2WD road to get there is very accessible, so no worries about that regardless of what you're driving!
Stake your tent down very well, as it can get very windy during the day. I thought I had mine in the ground pretty well, but it still wound up blowing away! A kind neighbor went and retrieved it and re-staked it for us,
