We’ve been here in-person, but it might have been a while. To our knowledge, this spot is currently open and accessible, but that can easily change, so always have a back-up plan!


This secluded campsite in Moab's backcountry is a hidden gem that is often overlooked by travelers heading to Spring Canyon. Although the stone fire ring appeared to be recently used, it is safe to say that the location is lesser known than most of the area campsites. The location boasts a spectacular view of a sandstone mound to the north, which can be enjoyed without the distractions of cell service, although some text messages may manage to go through. The site is perfect for stargazing, and the clear view of the sky might even be useful for Starlink.

The campsite is a bit exposed to weather coming in from the west, so it is best to stay here in good weather conditions, as the junipers and low vegetation do not offer much protection from the wind. Four-wheel drive is required to access the site, but any stock vehicle should be able to reach it with very few obstacles on the short length of primitive BLM track. The campsite is spacious enough for three to five vehicles, making it an ideal group camping spot. Exploring the area on foot would be a fun activity for campers, with the nearby rock formations. It is likely accessible in a four-wheel drive van, like our Winnebago Revel, if the last section of two-track is navigated with care, although larger vehicles might be susceptible to scratches.

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.
