Spring in Moab 2016

Postby DirtyDR » Mon Aug 03, 2015 11:24 am

Well boys and girls it is time to start the Spring in Moab thread for 2016. Next year I will be there from Sunday, April 24th through and leaving on Sunday May 1st. It is a little later than usual next year. Since reservations for the following year begin on August 1st I have my reservation in for the usual A cabin so all is still good in the universe. I have also booked the B cabin for Spat so that leaves only the C and D cabins in the basic cabin line still open and these will probably book quick.

For those new to the Spring in Moab fiasco the campground url is http://www.highwaywestvacations.com/pla ... ampground/ and reservations can be made anytime now for next year. The basic cabins will book fast and remember you can always cancel but once they are booked they are gone.

There will of course be much more said about this but since every year the campground fills up earlier I figured we may as well get things started.

Call them Walt, it is the only way to get things straight.

All of the basic cabins appear to be booked now also.

Will there be a group area for tent-types or just a buch of Ural folks? If so, what is it and how do you join that area? I'd have to trailer in with a 4Runner.

What is the gas availability like to refill, etc? Store for grub, etc, and so on?

You are very near town for supplies. The campground resort has a store and gas station.

The tent camping is in a row not far from the cabins and restrooms/showers.

I am sure others will chime in.

siberman1 come on out. Tried to get you to come last year on your way back from Denver. You'll have the rig a year by then time is now.
Gas and convenience store on site, town is a short distance, tent camping is spit'n distance form the cabins and plenty of riding on or off road.

Sorry folks not keeping up here, too busy out playing I guess.

Yes tent sites are in the campground right across from the cabins. There is also free camping just up the road if that is more to your taste. That is free for tents and RVs. You can make reservations online or personally I would call them to book. http://www.highwaywestvacations.com/pla ... ampground/

As far as White Rim Permits go you just have to swing by the visitor center and pick one up or you can order them online 24 hours in advance. http://www.nationalparkstraveler.com/20 ... anyonlands

Problem is with the new megacorporate owners they changed the whole reservation process. Used to be you called and the phones rang and who ever was around the counter answered it and wrote your reservation down in the reservation book. The new and improved modern version has one person back in the reservations room that has one phone and one computer terminal for reservations and if they are busy checking someone in or going to the bathroom the phone goes to the machine and when they get a chance they will call you back.
