trail camping spots?

I've been running my Jeep on trails in Colorado and then Moab last April and found camping restricted on the trails in the local Moab area. Are the trails outside the Moab area camping restricted as much?

I typically sleep in my Jeep and find a pay campsite with facilities every few days. I use the funtreks books which sometimes show trail camping but it's a bit confusing on what is regulated. I plan to be back to Moab in October.

It's about an 18 mile radius around Moab of restricted camping. Once you are outside of that boundary on BLM land you can camp for free in most reasonable places. You should be fine in October to get a BLM primitive spot close to town or get a spot in Arches. They fill up quickly so if you know the exact days you will be there go ahead and reserve your spots.

Thanks for the info. I'd started looking at BLM and national forest. It was a big change from Colorado where trail camping is allowed.
