Let us tell you more

Your quest to find a tent only Moab Campground can stop. Base all of your adventures and exploring in Arches & Canyonlands National Parks from Moab's best, Up the Creek Campground.

Just two blocks from Main Street, Up The Creek is a cozy, urban campground - an oasis of peace and relaxation in the heart of Moab. Our 15 site, tent-only, park & walk to your site campground is nestled within a grove of large shade trees next to a cooling perennial stream.

We are located off the beaten path, yet a just a short walk to Moab's many restaurants and shops. Our close proximity to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks as well as the World Famous Slick Rock Bike Trail gives you easy access to any adventure you choose!

Up the Creek Campground was established in 1989 and has served multitudes of happy campers since then. In 2022 we sustained a 500 year flood which damaged and altered the property significantly, forcing the campground to close for the remainder of the season. As we rebuild, we are taking the opportunity of a clean slate to make the campground more sustainable and environmentally friendly to our desert surroundings. Up the Creek will have a different look and feel yet will still serve as an oasis in the high desert as well as the perfect base camp for your adventures.

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

Your tent and equipment must fit and be set up between the camp dividers. Set up next to, or behind your table. Please do not overflow into the neighboring campsites.

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.

Groups

We typically do not accept group reservations of more than 12 people. You may book up to two family-sized tent sites with 6 people in each site or three regular sized tent sites with 4 people. If you have a larger group and would like to make a reservation, contact us for details and to check availability.
