We found another hike to do today and it was a winner. The Corona Arch trail right outside of town. Nice hike and beautiful rock formations.

Gorgeous pictures but then, you can hardly go wrong in such beautiful surroundings. Glad you're enjoying the trip!

All depends on your idea of a good place to camp. Plenty stellar places to dry camp and also full hook up locations in town. You need to provide more info.

Its beyond a neat place to visit, it is other worldly. Plenty of outdoor activities at a world class level... hiking, climbing, mountain biking, 4 wheeling and more.

If you want full hook ups or an RV park facility to pitch a tent, we stayed at Canyonlands RV and I would recommend it. Only one thing you need to know. Their spots are a bit short IMO. We have a 33ft TT and it took up every inch of the length. Otherwise Canyonlands is nice, clean, and centrally located.

My favorite is the Dead Horse Point campground. Electric only, and you need to bring your own water - little available in the park. A good location for exploring both Dead Horse Point & Canyonlands.

As to my favorite hike, it would have to be to False Kiva in Canyonlands. It is a bit strenuous at the end (I did it at 70), but well worth it. You have to ask a ranger for directions - it is not an "official" hike...

Another interesting short & easy hike in Canyonlands is to Mesa Arch. While you can go anytime, sunrise on the arch is something special.

Our favorites are staying in Arches National Park (dry camping) or Dead Horse Point State Park - electric only. The views from either are awesome!

We recently stayed at Goose Island (BLM). Quiet, nice views, but just dry camping. Right on the Colorado. Enjoy the area, it's beautiful!

What do you mean... "just dry camping" 😀 That's some of the finest camping, especially in Moab. Why stay in another in-town RV park when you can camp on the CO River (lots of BLM CG's to choose from), or in the middle of Devil's Garden in Arches NP, or any number of other unique stellar places?

Mand-G-Fun - Touchy, touchy, touchy.

We LOVE dry camping. It's usually more remote, quieter, with larger sites, more expansive views and freedom to choose where we park. We just came back from Burning Man and loved it. Also enjoyed Chaco canyon out in nowhere.

What I meant was that it's only dry camping. Some people prefer their hookups and dump stations, so that's not available and it's "just dry camping".

You have a good eye for pictures.

Let me ask do you have a relative in eastern KY?

just a few hours ago at my work in Lowe's in Russel KY, I told a customer I liked his shirt and asked where he bought it.
his answer was Moab,....last week. he said his in-laws tow a Jeep behind their RV.

Thanks - photography is a bit of an obsession of mine.

And, no, I don't have any relatives in KY. All Texans just like me. ;-)

Got jeep? If not rent one. Many wonderful trails. Rental places will direct you where to meet up with others in the morning to trail ride.
