Arches Mohab, Utah

We will be in the Mohab, Utah area for Labor Day weekend. The reviews that I have read for Archview, Canyonland and Spanish Trail RV parks are not very positive. Does anyone have experience with any of the camp grounds in the Mohab area? We have a 39' class A with a tow. I prefer pull throughs and possibly some shade. Thank you.

Try Portal. It depends on how much money you want to spend with them as far as how good the sites are, though.

We have stayed at Spanish Trail three different times. We are heading there in August and will stay there again. One thing that we like is it is located on a hill south of Moab with a little breeze. Another thing is there is a Butte located just west and is close, this offers afternoon shade. Conveinant store across the hwy that you can walk to. It is not perfect but we like it. There is a couple on the north side but the truck traffic climbing the hills at night was a little loud so we moved.

I've stayed at Slick Rock Campground. It's on the north side of town. I stayed in August. It had some nice trees and big pull throughs.

We stayed at Slick Rock a few years ago. Plenty of shade - sometime too much if you have a sat. dish for TV.

FYI - No 'h' in Moab.

Slick Rock campground is pretty good. So is The Moab RV campground. Actually all the campgrounds in and around Moab are pretty good. My wife and I have been there several times. The next time we go, we plan to dry camp along the Colorado just outside Moab.

We just left Portal RV Park. There is an older gravel section, and a newer paved section. The older section is about $10 a night less, and also has more shade. I think you would like either section.

We stayed at the KOA just south of Moab last month for a week and had a great site facing the hills. The pull-through was long enough for our MH and our toad.

I'm a fairly regular visitor to Moab. I think the park that may fit your needs best is Riverside Oasis. It sits right on the Colorado river. There are quite a few trees. It is on the North end of Moab with easy access to Arches NP.

Many RV parks are South of Moab and are well oriented for the off-roading crowd.

Slickrock is also on the North side and it has plenty of shade. The owners just have not kept it up. 30A only. Bathrooms are not pleasant. Hot tubs and pool--I don't trust them. I would especially avoid Slickrock during the big holiday weekends. I've stayed there for 3 Memorial Days and it's way overcrowded. Owners oversell (tent crowd) to maximize revenue.
