In checking The Portal RV Resort's website it appears like the gravel/smaller RV sites (North side) are the ones that they rent out and the larger, concrete RV sites (South side) are privately owned and are priced starting at $125,000.

The south side is an ownership park, much like outdoor resorts. But we rent a spot there anytime we go to Moab. The rates are reasonable for the large level concrete spots and related amenities like the the dog park. I just checked the website, and that hasn't changed. You can still rent a spot on the south side.

Yep, you're right. I found the part on their website that tells about renting in the south side ownership part of the The Portal. I hadn't run across that particular page of the website before. The lot owners in the south side can put their lot into a rental pool for the management to rent out. That's a very nice setup and that's what I would go for when staying in Moab again. We've rented from lot owners in other places and it worked out very well.

Actually in looking at my bookmarks I did have that one bookmarked as a possible place to stay. Now I've got to see when I can get back out there.

We stayed in the north end of Portal RV, in the cheaper section. We had our toy hauler at that time. We have friends that go for the month with lots of toys and always rent in the south end on the resort spaces. They have a group of bikers and jeepers that meet every year and take spaces in each section. The south owner's section is very nice, and worth the upgrade. We enjoyed visiting their spaces for the evening get togethers.

It was there that I met the bike riders that were telling me about the goat head stickers and flats. They were riding from the resort north on 191, and then east on 128 in the bike lanes. There must be solutions, as we met mountain bike riders on all the trails while we were in the Jeep or on the dual sport bikes.

Moab is hotter than hell starting in about May and gets even hotter as the summer progresses. Its about like Havasu Az 115-120-deg. No Moab for us in the summer.Also we didnt find that much in Moab unless you like to shop for Indian Jewelry..Now the Arches etc. are a whole other story They are magnificent...

Moab is hot in the summer, no question. But things to do there are totally dependent upon what you like to do. If you like off-roading or rock crawling, lots to do and lots of places to rent the equipment or take an excursion. If you like cruising down the river or hanging out at the river, lots to do. The two parks are wonderful with lots of hiking and more off road opportunity. It's certainly not a shopping town, (like Sedona). It's more of an adventure.....
