I have looked at it on Google and there may be a few tight turns.
Never camped there, but looks fascinating. The NP website says you need a high clearance vehicle to get in there, so I'm thinking no go on the big rig.

Moab in October can been very busy. Here in UT there are many schools which have from a few days to a full week off for fall break/hunting opening week.

Another choice is Zion park area in the south of the state. We stayed in the town of virgin, UT with a nice private campground. The one site near the park in Springdale is not a good option.

I discovered the same thing. Too bad, the road observed from the park looks good. We walked up the road about 1/2 mi to see a crack in a solid rock cliff, where cool air is rushing out of it. Pretty amazing.

I failed to mention, one of the reasons we chose Moab is because we want to do some trail riding in our ATV. We have learned that this is not allowed in NP's, since they only allow street legal vehicles on their back country roads.

Aha, that makes sense. The trail riding in Moab is excellent. I think you'll be fine if you try for either Kens Lake or Horsethief, especially if you can arrive before the weekend.

There is plenty of trails to use your ATV outside on the edge of Zion NP.
