Camping by Arches N.P. boondocking

Looking for a place to boondock by Arches N.P. We have a 32' fifth-wheel and a 36' motorhome with car. Somewhere close enough to do a day trip to Arches N.P. This would be for mid April. Thanks.

Willow springs rd. about 1.5 mi. n. of Canyonlands park entrance turn off is to the east first 2 mi. are fairly good dirt road with a number of pulloff sites. We stayed 2 nights in 2010 this rd. is a backway into Arches. We did not stay but drove the road along the river turn W. just after crossing the the river N. side of Moab 2or3 BLM campgrounds looked quite nice

BLM Campgrounds surrounding Moab, Utah

Lots of campgrounds listed here which may suit your needs. We love Aches - one of our favorite places to hike. We were fortunate to have seen one of the arches just before it fell a few years ago.

If you're up to it, the hike to Delicate Arch is not to be missed. The next highly recommended hike is to see Landscape Arch. An amazing sight - it spans about 300 feet, and is only 6 feet thick in one place. A portion of it also fell a few years go.

Primitive camping has been cut back quite a bit in the last few years. However, there are still quite a few places to boondock. The problem is I'm not sure how to describe them. Some are along the main highway as you enter Moab from the North. The old airport. The intersection of 313 and 192. Willow Springs.

There are other more private boondocking sites that are further off the main road. I'd only say this: you'll be on sand and the roads are uneven. I've never chanced taking my coach into those places. It might be fine but I could never envision how I'd get it unstuck if the worst happens. Most tow services won't go more than 100 feet offroad.

Have fun.
