Description

There are two campgrounds next to each other, the Kayenta and the Wingate. Wingate is a new campground and has more level sites than Kayenta. A site is 30$ per night plus 20$ for the park entrance. The site has electricity, but no water. Wingate has also a dump station. There is drinking water at the restrooms, but not for refilling water tanks.
You either need a online/telephone reservation or you have to be at the visitor center before 5pm. We arrived at 4:45pm with no reservation and there were 3 available sites left. There is cell coverage with 3G/4G.

The Deadhorse viewpoint is well worth a visit, like Grand Canyon but with better views of the Colorado river (and far less people).

Latest Check-Ins

Stayed in Kayenta campground. Current fee is now $50/night for all sites.

Very scenic, nice to have access to shore power to recharge house battery. Some sites are closer together, others have more space between. Great views, but that's pretty par for the course around Moab.

Definitely felt a little on the expensive side for what you get (no water, no showers, etc.) but it's a great location with good access to hiking and biking, and the $50 includes the $20/day you would pay just to enter the park, so if you were already planning to come to hike or bike it's really more like $30 to stay.

Report Check-In

We stayed at Wingate Campground site #29-there are large sites that are meticulously clean and well maintained. Each site has a large picnic shelter shielded on two sides against the sun. We had a pull thru site that was slightly sloped. There are flush toilets and pit toilets that are extremely clean. It is $50/night fee for campers-all sites have electricity. No showers and no potable water provided for campers but you can fill your water bottle at the Visitor Center or bathrooms. Excellent campground!

Just as the original poster described except the price is now a total of $58.00! At Wingate the sites are level and each site has a 2 sided shelter to protect you from the elements. The views of the Colorado are fantastic and you can see the Schafer Trail down below. This is also a great site for jumping off to go on the White Rim Trail out of Islands in the Sky district of Canyonlands NP ( reservations are required and are hard to get).
