Forest Service / BLM
Moab Area BLMUtah
Number of Sites: 17
About: It is just upstream of Negro Bill Canyon and is very close to where the Porcupine Rim Trail, a popular route for mountain biking, joins Highway 128. The campsites are designed for tent camping only.
In the fall of 2008 the BLM and partners worked together to remove non-native Tamarisk and Russian Olive trees. Once the non-native vegetation was removed the BLM redesigned, re-contoured and reconstructed the campsites. You will now find native cottonwood and willow trees throughout the campground and improved views of the Colorado River. These hearty and native trees are temporarily being irrigated to encourage growth and development. Please do not disturb the new vegetation or any black irrigation tubing. If you have any questions please contact the office.
Fees: $12 (2012)
Restrictions: Campsites are available on a first-come, first served basis.
Directions: Granstaff Campground is located 3 miles from the junction of Highway 128 and Highway 191.
Currently there are no reviews of this campground.
More spectacular canyon country camping
Another popular campground near Moab. This campground was recently rebuilt and the spots are nice and clean. Note that this and the rest of the campgrounds around Moab fill up very fast so grab a spot early. Campground is at the terminus of the Porcupine Rim trail. If you are planning to do the trail note that a shuttle is required to the trailhead unless you want to do an epic loop, half of which is on paved roads.
