I will guarantee that when you leave you will be thinking that you wish there had been more time to drive trails in your Jeep.

^^^^^^^^^^ x a TON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've only been out to Moab to wheel once; we ended up having a long weekend & a really long 2 days of wheeling. I want to go back insanely bad!

We ended up staying at one of the campsites right at the beginning of town (as you're driving in, on the right hand side). It was good - not overly crowded when we were there, & we were tucked way in the back, so we had our own little area.

Yeah I noticed this on the park websites and decided to leave the pup at home.

First time I went, 3 days, not enough.

Next time, 5 days, not enough.

Last time, 6 days, still not enough.

So...where do you usually stay? Any good deals besides camping and the KOA?

- Ryan

I know you were asking about camping (we stayed with our rv at portal rv park and it was nice - but only on the south end the north end is nowhere near as nice), but I thought I would share this:

My wife and I just spent the last couple days in Moab with our rubicon. We came by ourselves, and wanted to do some wheeling.n not being one to go alone, especially where i am unfamiliar - we were looking at our options. We bought a book that we were referred to, and decided to stay to the "easy" trails and just make the best of it. While she was getting ready and I was waiting (which I spend an amazing amount of time doing) I was looking through the book - wishing we could go somewhere better. I ran across a couple pictures in it and there was a guides name on a jeep, I thought "what the hell" and I called him. Best call I could have made. Dan Mick, was the guys name, I called him a little before nine am and we met at ten. He led in his jeep, and we followed in ours, we did the Hell's Revenge trail. I never would have considered it alone, and it was the highlight of our trip. Dan is a great guy, with tons of local knowledge and just a genuine person. We couldn't say enough good things about him.

I had been looking at a way to break into Moab, and had seen many ideas here on the forum of what to do and where to go - this just worked out so great for us I wanted to share the experience.

It was great. We didn't do the canyon down and up and the end (Hell's gate I believe), we rode through it with Dan- it was unreal. The rest of the trail was a great time.

The Lazy Lizard Hostel is not to bad. My wife was okay, she did use the showers at Poison Spider bike shop though. The hostel is cheap!
