The camp is conveniently located a couple blocks from downtown with all you need to feel comfortable. Showers are basic but serviceable. Being that it is a walk-in camp, the noise is minimal in a town that is rife with RVs and off-road noisy vehicles.

Up the creek is a wonderful, 2 minute walk in campground (no generator noise!) just a few blocks from the restaurants and shopping of downtown Moab. We spent 3 great nights there, it makes a terrific base camp for all the amazing recreation options. Well maintained shower and bath facilities, with many camp sites along the creek and cottonwood shade...

reasonable rates. VERY reasonable when you consider what the motels are asking. I LOVE the fact the sites are away from cars. The noise and fumes one has to endure from arriving/leaving/rubber-necking motorists in most public/private campgrounds are reasons that I generally camp in the bush. The location is fantastic. In the town, close to everything, and by a creek...

It was nice to have a warm shower after a few days on the road. The bath house was clean. Easy to figure out what sites are available. I like the concept of walking in, however the urban noise requires ear plugs for my sensitive rural ears.

Despite being in town, the campground was quiet and felt like it was along a stream in a rural area. I liked the complimentary carts by the parking area for toting stuff to campsite. The management was well organized and made it easy to do self-check-in, etc. Ever other camper with whom I spoke was kind and helpful. A group...

This is the second time I have stayed at Up the Creek. If you want to find a clean, safe, affordable and shaded place to tent while visiting Moab and the national parks (Arches, Canyonlands) close by, then this is the place. Yes, this campground is within the city- you can walk to the main street (or bike or drive)-...

This land is magical! I loved the location, how easy check in, our stay, and check out was, the owners, the Luxury Tent, hot and cold showers, our neighbors, free parking, ice, electrical plug ins, how peaceful it is, the trees for shade, and our entire experience. We got the Luxury Tents. I highly recommend getting one! We had a...

The website advertises the campsites as it is: no false advertising. Everything was in proper working order, and the owners gave clear instructions. Having showers and bathrooms with flush toilets was great, and the shade from the tree at our campsite offered some welcome respite from the heat. But the site was sandy and rocky (probably endemic to the area)....

Wow, what a pleasure it's been to stay in this space. I love that they have hot & cold showers, a chill atmosphere, very affordable rates, a place to plug in your electronics, that it's walking distance to the main road, there's plenty of parking, they have carts for your belongings, ice is only $3, and everyone we've met has...

I wrestled with giving this property an average or a good ranking. For what it is, it is perfectly fine. It is a campground a couple blocks away from the main drag of Moab. You can walk to the restaurants which is very nice. The sites themselves are smallish and offer absolutely no privacy from your neighbors. Do not expect...
