BLM Camping


There are quite a few developed campsites on the public land (Bureau of Land Management land) surrounding Arches National Park. While they are a little further away, you will be rewarded with fewer crowds and unmatched views. Keep in mind, camping in a developed BLM campsite is not free, and you should know Camping Guidelines in order to protect Moab’s natural lands. Explore BLM Campgrounds to find a basecamp for your Arches trip!

Camp Like a Moab Local!

Do your part in preserving and protecting Moab’s natural spaces with these four easy tips:

  • Leave No Trace – Collect all trash, recyclables, human and pet waste. Avoid disturbing vegetation at your campsite by setting up tents and other gear in established areas. Finally, respect the rocks, wildlife, and water sources that keep Moab’s ecosystem alive.
  • Stay on the Trail – Moab’s desert soil is teeming with life. Biological soil crust (also known as cryptobiotic soil) is a major part of the desert ecosystem in Moab, so keep all foot and pet traffic on established trails.
  • Respect the Rocks – Ancient ruins, artifacts, and rock art sites are common attractions in the areas surrounding this town. Take a moment to appreciate the history and culture they represent, but without touching or defacing these pieces of ancient history.

  • Eat & Shop Local – There’s nothing better after a day of hiking, rafting, climbing, or canyoneering than heading downtown to explore the shops and a bite to eat. Take an art stroll to see exhibits by local artists, gear up for tomorrow’s adventure, and unwind over dinner.
