Favorite Campsites in Moab

Do you have a favorite place to camp in Moab? I'd love to hear your opinions and see a picture or two. I got a lot of responses to the favorite trails post, so let's see where you stay. I will be out in Moab the first week in May. We will be tenting.

Also, just wondering what you typically do when you go. Do you stay at the same one for several days or do you go to different campsites?

I've stayed at the Archview Campground which was nice, but a few miles out of town. I've heard that Canyonlands Campground is a good place. Don't stay at Slickrock Campground...it's kinda dingy.

If I were camping, I'd stay at the Riverside Oasis.

Here's a complete listing.

I always "camp" at the Redstone Inn, which is almost next door to Canyonlands Campground (there's a gas station/mini mart in between them). Some of our Grand Slam West group have stayed there, and I think they liked it. Seems like a good campground when I've been there. Best thing is it's central location to town - Moab brewery is right across the street, so you can just walk over, eat, drink and be merry, and stumble back to the campground. Also, City Market is just up the street.

The only bad thing about staying in campgrounds is you can't have a campfire. The camp grounds in and around town are convenient as you can walk to dinner or the grocery store. But if this isn't a priority there are quite a few primitive sits along the river. Plus you can have campfires at these sites.

Last May I stayed at the KOA five miles south of Moab. I was there with my F-250 4x4 pulling a 30' travel trailer - so that's my idea of camping. I prefer KOA's because they're like McDonald's - no matter where you are, you know what you're getting.

Rusty are you wanting advice on campgrounds or primitive campsites...

Deadhorse Point State Park has awesome views, really nice spots and is pretty close to town. Also a good bit of history as to how it got its name.
