Moab camping - near Dead Horse Point
Highway 313 (14 miles from Highway 191)
Just outside Canyonlands National Park (Island In The Sky District) and Dead Horse Point State Park
Moab camping - BLM campground near Dead Horse Point and Island In The Sky
This is a wild place to camp...with only 7 campsites set along a rough dirt road...all with absolutely stunning views over the valleys of Canyonlands National Park.
There are no real facilities here, apart from picnic tables/benches and fire pits. Make sure you have plenty of water - there is no shade and it can get really hot!
Because there is no toilet you are required to carry and use a portable toilet. The burying or leaving exposed of solid waste is not allowed. We didn't have a portable toilet, but managed to hang on until we got to the Dead Horse Point visitor center (what a lovely topic of conversation).
