Moab receives biblical levels of tourists every year! Almost one million people visited Canyonlands and around 1.8 million visited Arches in 2021. Visitors can’t keep away from these epic, arid red landscapes.

Situated in Eastern Utah, Moab sits in the middle of these two national parks. Dead Horse Point State Park is only a few miles southwest, too. Basing yourself at one of the campgrounds near Moab, Utah, when you’re exploring the area by campervan, is a no-brainer.

Lucky for you, there are many RV parks and places to go van camping in Moab. And this is a list of the best ones! No matter which camping sites in Moab you choose, you’ll be within driving distance of all the top spots.

1. ACT Campground

Situated right on Highway 191, ACT Campground is a literal five-minute drive from Moab. This campground prides itself on being as environmentally friendly as possible. They use green energy sources, recycle, and conserve as much water as possible.

This campground is close to the Mill Creek North Fork Trailhead and waterfall. It’s also one of the closest campgrounds to the Slick Rock Bike Trail and the Morning Glory scenic viewpoint.

As well as campervan sites, ACT has cabins, yurts, and sites for tent campers. Their RV sites have full hookups with water, 30/50 amp electricity, and cable. They can accommodate RVs up to 40ft in length, but they have more space for campervans up to 20 or 30ft.

They offer WiFi across their entire campsite, showers, toilets, and laundry facilities. You can also use their communal kitchen for only $42 per night.

2. Portal RV Resort Moab

Portal RV Resort is one of the largest RV campgrounds in Moab. This campsite is situated northwest of the city and closer to Arches National Park than some other RV parks. You’re only a few minutes away from some of the top viewpoints like Entrance Station and Courthouse Towers.

With almost 100 sites, Portal can accommodate RVs up to 40ft in length. But if you have pop-outs or a vehicle older than 10 years, then you can’t go van camping at this RV park. They have a range of standard and premium sites, each with a range of facilities.

All sites have at least 30 amp electric and water hookups, WiFi, and cable TV. Deluxe and premium sites also have 50-amp electric and sewer hookups. Everyone camping in Moab at this resort gets access to showers, a laundry room, a pool, and more.

Prices start from $73 a night, but they offer tons of amenities. Portal sits in the center of a beautiful canyon surrounded by the Colorado River.

3. Moab Rim RV Campark

One of the best things about van camping in Moab, Utah, is waking up with beautiful views outside your windows. If you stay at Moab Rim RV Campark, you’ll see the Spanish Valley and the La Sal Mountains from your site. It’s also close to the Hidden Valley Trailhead and Window Arch scenic point.

This campground has 64 sites for RVs and tents, with some cabins too. Their sites can accommodate all campervans up to 40ft in length, starting at $44 per night. All sites offer standard 30 amp electric and water hookups, but others have sewer, 50 amp electric, cable TV, and WiFi.

There are playgrounds and showers onsite too. Moab Rim has tried to make their site as green as possible to provide a change of scenery (and shade!) to the sandy landscape.

4. Spanish Trail RV Park

Want to go van camping in Moab as close to the Spanish Trail as possible? You can’t get much closer than the Spanish Trail RV Park! It’s also only three miles south of Moab, too.

If you didn’t know, the Old Spanish Trail is a 1,120-mile trade route from Santa Fe to Los Angeles. Fur trappers and other traders used it in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and Moab sits right in the middle of the route.

Spanish Trail RV Park offers van campers full hookup sites, a pool and spa, showers, laundry facilities, and free WiFi. Their rates start from $78 per night and can accommodate campervans and RVs up to 75ft in length.

5. Moab KOA Holiday

Van lifers love KOA Holiday parks as they are always super clean with excellent amenities. The Moab KOA is a sprawling space offering lots of privacy between sites, with one of the largest swimming pools in the area at the center.

Moab KOA Holiday is the perfect distance from all three main parks in this part of Utah and close to the city. They have reservable sites for all types of RVs up to 80ft in length. They offer 30/50 amp electric and water hookups with cable TV and have pet-friendly sites too.

Enjoying all the outdoor activities in the area from the Moab KOA campground is easy. You can hire mountain bikes and ATVs and book four-wheeling excursions from the site. Hot air ballooning over the La Sal mountains and horseback riding along the Colorado River are possible from this campsite, too.

6. Sun Outdoors Arches Gateway

Gateway is accurate! Sun Outdoors Arches Gateway is the closest RV park to Arches National Park and the Colorado River.

It’s within walking distance to the Lions Park and Bike Path Trailhead and the Colorado Railway Bridge. The Gemini Bridges Trailhead and the Moab Giants open-air museum aren’t far away either.

It’s a premium campervan park with affordable $59 per night prices. Sun Outdoors Arches has 68 RV sites that have at least 20/30/50 amp hookups. Some also have cable access and WiFi and can accommodate RVs with slide-outs up to 45ft in length.

Other amenities at the campground include a swimming pool, bike wash and repair station, games, and a dog park. It’s perfect for vanlifers who travel with family (kids or pets!) who like to stay active on their vacations.

7. Sunsets of Moab RV Park

Prefer to stay in campsites that past campers describe as peaceful and quiet? Then you should stay in this RV Park on your trip to Utah. Sunsets of Moab is close to the Faux Falls and Entrajo Canyon trails in the Spanish Valley.

It’s a much smaller campground than some others in the area and doesn’t have onsite bathrooms or laundry facilities. But for their $80 per night rates, you get up to 110 amp electric, water, and sewer hookups. They also have a rinse-off area for off-road vehicles, picnic tables, and WiFi.

Moab can be a busy and popular place to visit during the summer months, in particular. If you crave a quiet night’s sleep away from young families and pets, Sunsets of Moab is worth a few extra dollars a night.

8. OK RV Park

Run by Funstays, OK RV Park is only a few miles southeast of Moab in the Spanish Valley. And it’s not only an RV park; they also have yurts and cabins if you feel like sleeping in a bed without wheels for a change. This is the closest van camping spot to the Old Spanish Valley Trail and the local winery.

There may not be an on-site swimming pool, but you can go for a dip in some of Mother Nature’s pools nearby. Ask the office for directions to Ken’s Lake and Power Dam.

They can accommodate vehicles up to 40ft in length with cable access and WiFi across the campsite. OK RV Park has full hookups on every site (50 amp electric, water, and sewer), showers, and laundry facilities. Their rates start from $49 a night or $59 during peak season.

9. Seven Mile RV Park

Seven Mile RV Park used to be a seasonal campsite, but thanks to Utah’s growing popularity, it’s now open year-round. This campground is closer to Arches and Moab than it is to Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands. But it’s still centrally located enough to be a base for all four destinations.

It’s also close to the Colorado River, where you can go kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding. There’s even a paved bike trail to Moab from the campground, so you can head into the city without moving your RV. This campsite is near the Bar M bike trails and Mill Canyon Dinosaur Bone Trail.

This campground is far more rustic than some of the others in the area. There is no WiFi, cable access, or pool, but many campers love staying in more backwoods van camping spots.

Don’t worry, it’s not too rustic. Half of its 54 RV sites have electric hookups with a water and sewer dump station. You don’t have to live without van essentials when you’re trying to get back to nature!

Hit the Open Road for Your Van Camping in Moab Adventure

No one can go van camping in Moab without hitting up Dead Horse Point, Canyonlands, and Arches. Mountain bikers need to shred down the world-famous Slick Rock Bike Trail. And culture vultures need to check out the Spanish Valley wineries and historic sites.

All these activities and more are within your reach when you stay at one of these campgrounds in Moab, Utah.
