Beginning on May 15, 2022, the Division implemented a $15 per night fee for each vehicle. This includes all overnight lodging including but not limited to tents, RVs, trailers, and vehicles. Overnight visitors who do not pay the fee may be issued a citation. Visitors are permitted to camp in the same manner that has historically been permitted at existing dispersed sites.
The park will not be charging day-use fees at this time. This $15 fee only applies to those staying after park day-use hours. Individuals can pay these fees via the iron ranger locations found upon entering the park or online by scanning the QR code featured on park signage.
Utahraptor State Park is located roughly 15 miles northwest of Moab in the Dalton Wells and Willow Springs area of Grand County — where Utah’s most famous dinosaur was discovered. The site is also home to the historic Moab CCC Camp and the Moab Isolation Center.
While it is still in the planning stages, visitors can look forward to a modern campground, restrooms, historical and paleontological displays, and trailheads for accessing nearby OHV and mountain bike trail systems. This will truly be a park that caters to a wide variety of outdoor enthusiasts.
