Primitive Camping On Public Lands

Although we encourage all visitors to take advantage of the numerous private and public campgrounds in the Moab area, limited primitive camping is available. Primitive camping is restricted to designated sites along Highway 313, the Gemini Bridges Road, the Black Ridge Road and Pack Creek Roads, the area accessed by the Mill Canyon Road and the Blue Hills Road, in the Castle Rock area, and south of Moab in the Blue Hill/Picture Frame Arch area. In addition, camping is restricted to designated sites where Kane Creek Road crosses Kane Creek itself, and at Dripping Springs near Ten Mile Wash. These sites are marked with a brown post and a tent symbol. The sites are free, but campers are required to carry out all garbage, including solid human waste. Campers are required to possess, set up and use portable toilets. Campers may not bury, or leave exposed, solid human body waste and soiled toilet paper. The disposal of solid human waste off public land is required. There is no wood cutting allowed.  The sites are summarized below.   

  • Gemini Bridges Road - There are six campsites located in Bride Canyon.
  • Picture Frame Arch Area - There are four sites located six miles from Highway 191.
  • Mill Canyon/Cotter Road/Dubinky Road Area - There are approximately 40 sites located in this area.
  • Kane Creek Crossing - There are approximately 28 sites located along Kane Creek where the Kane Creek Road crosses the water.
  • Dripping Spring near Ten Mile Wash - There are several large campsites on the west side of the road and within the riparian fences.

There are several areas in which no sites are designated and camping is not allowed. The Shafer Basin, which forms the viewshed of Dead Horse Point State Park and is important bighorn sheep habitat, has no sites. Long Canyon, which is subject to extreme flooding and is also bighorn habitat, has no sites. The small area between the entrance to Arches National Park and Highway 191 also has no sites. No camping is allowed in the Mill Creek area immediately east of the city of Moab, or on the west side of Spanish Valley. No camping is allowed within one mile of developed recreation sites in the Canyon Rims Recreation Area. 

Remember, when using free designated sites, you are required to remove all solid human waste from the area.  Campers are required to possess, set up and use portable toilets. Campers may not bury, or leave exposed, solid human body waste and soiled toilet paper. The disposal of solid human waste off public land is required. You must camp only in marked sites, and no wood cutting is allowed. Following these simple rules will ensure that the sites are attractive to future campers. Enjoy your stay!
