Designated Campsite Behind the Rocks in Moab

You must be a member or a Patreon subscriber to see location.


This official dispersed campsite on BLM Land south of Moab, near the Behind the Rocks 4x4 Safari Route is a great place to spend some time in nature. Located on the southern side of a towering island of slick-rock, between two scenic arches, this campsite is accessible by any stock, four-wheel drive Jeep, truck, SUV, or camper van if you drive with care. However, it is important to note that it is located several miles from pavement down a well-traveled BLM road that could be impassable when wet.

At the campsite, you will find a primitive stone fire ring next to a towering wall of red-rock, and there is enough room for two or three vehicles surrounded by junipers. As this is a popular campsite, especially during peak season, expect to encounter other campers. Also, it is important to note that there is very poor cell service here, and Starlink is not viable as the rock formation looms to the north.

If you are looking for a great basecamp for hiking, enjoying scenery, or motorized 4x4 adventure, this is the place for you. There are countless difficult four-wheel drive routes in the area, making it a perfect spot for those who love adventure and the great outdoors. So, if you are planning a trip to Moab and want to experience nature at its best, be sure to check out this dispersed campsite on BLM Land.

Also, it is required by the BLM that you have a self-contained toilet system if you plan to spend the night here, so make sure you, erm... go prepared!

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
