BLM campgrounds

Does anyone know if the BLM campgrounds around Moab are still open?

I had the same question as we were due to camp there late next week (and hopefully still will if it gets sorted). According to the BLM website factsheet, NO they aren't open. doi.gov/shutdown/…BLM-Fact-Sheet.pdf

Just read in the Salt Lake Tribune that BLM campsite around Moab have been closed. I suppose you could always find a dirt road and travel until you find a good spot to camp. Follow basic back country etiquette with regards to human waste, fires, garbage, proximity to water sources, etc.

Unfortunately I can't link to BLM while the site is down, but there should still be "dispersed" camping all around Moab. The Moab visitors center (NOT the Arches one) should be open and able to help. We are leaving in the morning. The main thing according to BLM when site was still up is to stick to existing spots and YOU MUST HAVE A PORTABLE TOILET SET UP. Bought one just for this. Have fun!!

Campgrounds up and down the river corridor were open and had campers. Some were close with tape and barricades. I did not investigate what the difference was.
