Free camping outside of Moab, Utah.

Willow Springs Trail is state-owned land located 13 miles north of downtown Moab Utah. The state provides some vault toilets and port-o-lets throughout the area, but there are no designated campsites or fire rings. Along the main road, there are plenty of large flat spots that people with RV's or big trailers grab, but there are spurs with plenty of other places to choose a campsite. Since this is dispersed camping, there is no fee. Just be sure to leave the area as you found it.

Willow Springs Trail is located near many trail systems such as Klondike Bluff Dinosaur Tracks, the Magnificent 7, Bar M, and more. 

Enjoy a night out under the stars and the Milky Way with your friends!
