“BLM campgrounds near Arches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We chose Big Bend just because of it's location near a big bend in the Colorado. It's a first come first served and I'd suggest starting your search before 10AM if you expect to get a spot in any of the campgrounds on BLM land that border the Colorado River. The sites are all we kept but the tent placement is a little tricky. You need to find a good spot off the gravel and that isn't available at all spots. You have to walk a little bit down to the river to get a really good view (you can't just sit at your campfire and see it). The restrooms are well maintained but wait until night to go if you can just to avoid all the flies during the day.

These are a set of BLM campgrounds along the colorado river in a deep valley. They're all quite similar but we chose Hal Canyon as it had some protection from the strong winds blowing through that week. A 10-15 min drive to Moab and Arches NP. First come first Served at $12 per night. Some of the tent pitches are quite small so check all the sites out. There is no running water here at all, just a vault toilet that was kept clean and tidy. The camp host was friendly and informative. The camp is right on the highway but it's not a busy road (fantastic scenic route in from I70 through to 191) I recommend doing the nearby Negro Bill hike along a stream, beautiful.

We took a detour to Moab when the weather turned VERY cold in southern Colorado.
What an amazing place Moab was. We spent 2 days just sightseeing and hiking in Arches NP. We found a beautiful camp site on BLM land on the Colorado River along Rt. 128. It was Columbus Day weekend, the temps were still in the 50's at night, great for sleeping and the low 70's during the day. We stayed at the Big Bend campground, about 6-7 miles down Rt. 128. Spectacular cliffs on either side of the road and campsites are right on the river. What a bargain at $14 a night.
Looking forward to going back in the spring.
