Nice and quite, yet perfectly located in the heart of Moab, Up The Creek was ideal for our 3 day hiking trip to the desert. I really liked how keeping the parking lot away from the tent sites prevents late at night headlights (experienced at other campgrounds) from illuminating your tent and waking you up. Plus there are excellent wheelbarrows...

Campground is great for anyone visiting Arches or Canyonlands parks. Close, right in the city - supermarket is nearby, gas station is near by - everything is nearby. Clean facilities, lots of shade. Charge station to charge your devices, sink to wash dishes.

We spent three nights at Up the Creek Campground this July. We had been tent-camping in a series of national parks prior. Compared to those experiences, Up the Creek was luxurious. The restrooms are well maintained and the campground is beautiful. (The owners have numerous flowers and plants and have the greenest grass that I have ever seen.) It is...

I'm not sure what I was expecting. I guess we were just used to the spacious national park campgrounds so this, which is a bit of a back yard with tents in it was a bit disappointing. There are showers although they aren't the most private. Toilets were clean and there was hand gel for washing hands. It's not as...

We stayed here 3 nights and loved it. Initially not having the car next to us was a bind but in the end we loved the fact that there were no cars driving round this small site. Anyway there are trollies to cart your stuff. Also loved being to walk into town. Had no problems pegging tent out at our...

Chose this campground since it is in the middle of the town of Moab. The sites were very rocky and it was difficult to get the tent staked up. Everything was done via phone and internet, never saw anybody from the facility. Bathrooms were clean but with the low "doors" (both toilet and showers) a bit strange. Will pick a...

Pros - location to town, tucked away from too much noise, quiet time was observed. Bathrooms/showers were clean. Nice place to wash dishes on outside of bathrooms. Cons - Can't park near your tent. ROCKY. Be careful walking to and from your tent. The rocks are large enough to twist an ankle (especially at night). Hard to stake down tent...

This is a great little campground if you want to be right in town with close access to everything. It's a little pricey IMO. Sites are small with a picnic table. Room for a tent and a few chairs. Pitching surface is sandy with a few rocks, but not bad at all. Main walking areas are mostly rocks. Nice manicured...

We stayed here based off of the trip advisor reviews. It was difficult to stake down the tent because of all the rocks in the ground . Every time we went to pound it into the ground it wouldn't go in because of the rocks . The ants were pretty bad and they were all over us sitting at the...

Be sure to bring good earplugs and a thick air mattress, or try a BLM campsite outside of town for one fifth the cost. If you have a annual pass for the National Parks, which is great for all the many beautiful parks in the area, you can camp at the many peaceful Bureau of Land Management campgrounds in the...
