We are a tiny, cozy Urban Campground located right in the bustling town of Moab next to the newly constructed middle school. We are nestled within a grove of large shade trees, beautiful landscaping and next to a cool perennial stream. (Please keep in mind that if you are coming in the early spring, there will not be foliage or flowers yet and camp will look more bare than the website photos! Also, note that the creek's flow is variable throughout the year.)

We are just 2 blocks off of the Main street, close to shopping, restaurants and the bike/walking path. We are a self check-in, (no onsite office), tent-only, walk-in only (park and walk in), campground. (No cars in camp, no camping in parking lot allowed.)

Sites are primarily rocky and/or bare ground, with a perimeter of watered lawn.  There is no on-site office. We are in camp 3+ times a day to check, clean, mow, etc. If you don't see us, but you need and leave a message, email, or put a note in the post that we check 3x a day.

We have clean bathhouses with hot showers (closed daily from 11-1) and an outdoor sink for dishes. There is a picnic table at each site, and 3 communal propane BBQ grills.

Sorry, but no campfires, propane fire rings or open flame allowed. Camp stoves are fine! Sorry, no dogs.

We have two site types, Tent Sites and Family-Size Tent Sites.  Tent sites can accommodate one larger tent or two to three smaller tents with a maximum capacity of four people .  Family-Size Tent Sites can accommodate 2 larger tents or three to five smaller tents with a maximum capacity of 6 people.

Due to our small size, this camp is not recommend for children under 3.

Check-in/Quiet hrs.

Check-in is at 12:00 noon and Check-out is 11:00 am. The bath house is closed for cleaning from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Plan accordingly! Quiet hours in camp are from 10:00pm to 6:00am. Consider the many nearby places you can go if you want to stay up late, as a courtesy to your neighbors.

About Us

We are an Urban Camp! Local noise includes but is not limited to; trucks, cars, motorcycles, 4X4’s, school bells, marching bands and perhaps even a parade! We are self-check in (no onsite office or staff), walk in and tent only. We are in camp 3+ times a day to check, clean, mow, etc. If you don't see us, but you need something or have a problem, call and leave a message, email, or put a note in the post that we check 3x a day.

Campsite & Grass

Your tent and equipment must fit and be set up between the camp dividers and NOT ON THE GRASS. Set up left of, or behind your table. To preventing getting wet from the automatic sprinklers, your tent and equipment must be set up at least 2 feet from the edge of the grass. You can lounge on the grass, but when you leave camp, remove chairs, etc. or it will get wet!

Camp Tables and Site Use

Do not move the picnic tables, as they are chained down. Each camp table is numbered for that site. No cleaning, repairing or working on bicycles and/or motors on the picnic tables. No Motorcycles are allowed in the camp area for any reason. All motor vehicles and trailers must be in parking lot. No exceptions!

Nature and The Environment

This is the desert! We have rocks, sand, dirt, sun, heat, cold, rain, wind, etc. Most campgrounds in the city area of Moab have the same desert aspects as we do; the difference is our close proximity to downtown. You are camping! Be prepared for bugs, insects, ants, spiders, Cottonwood beetles, caterpillars, lizards, deer, cotton from the trees, etc. Leaving food out or unsecured, attracts bugs and Ravens. Ravens are smart, they will wait until you leave and will get into everything except zippered tents, closed coolers and locked cars, (at least thus far)! Plan accordingly. No dogs allowed in camp or parking lot.

Policies for Reservations
Due to severe flooding, Up The Creek Campground will be closed until further notice.
