I was in Moab in September and boondocked just 1 mile north of Archview off of Willow Springs Rd. Nice and quiet, but it can be a gamble finding a decent spot, as it is known to draw quite a crowd at times...

Howdy sasha_j.

Cool, we can have our own camp, call it the "west side ghetto" :lol: Seriously if a few of us boondock together we could have a good time. :deal:

I am not a fan of the Willow Springs road for boondocking....our rig is too big for that area, the road gets rough and prime spots are not easy to get. Although it's a great Ural trip to see dinosaur tracks and take the back way into Arches NP.

Howdy sasha_j,

I am in the same boat, big rig, bad roads, very limited decent spots, not a good combination. Looking at your photo a bit closer I don't know if that is the spot, I am going to take a look in google earth and see if I can get a better look of the area I am talking about. Stay tuned.

Howdy sasha_j,

In this photo you can see Archway camp ground on the EAST side of the hwy, the area I am talking about boondocking in is directly across form the camp ground on the WEST side of the hwy. There's NOTHING there, just a huge area of fairly flat ground.

I am not seeing anything directly across from the campground entrance on the west side of the highway....looks unavailable best I can tell...

I think it's a bit north as shown in my other pic

Howdy sasha_j,

Looking at your photo again, that's just north of the area I am talking about, its all good, when we get there just pick a spot.

What about our friend "Mud"? How does that area look if it (more likely than not) rains?

Howdy Marv,

In the years I have ridden through and parked in this area I have seen some DEEP ruts in the low areas. If a person picks a place with the thought of rain in mind I don't think it would be a problem. That said depending on how hard and for how long it rained it could be a real mofker. I am going to pick a high dry spot and take my chances as I don't think it's going to be a problem.

Mud can be an issue during wet periods for sure......we have had good weather karma in Moab area during spring and fall.....hopefully that will continue.
