Camp at Willow Springs Trail


Added by Chris Engelsman

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!

Stars & Space

This campground goes on forever!! You will always be able to find a campsite here, even when the rest of the campgrounds are full. Not to mention, the view of the stars here is spectacular! There may be fire rings here but we didn’t see any. Next time we’re bringing a propane fire or our own ring (fire restrictions out here are common).

If you like free things and star gazing, check this place out!

Everything in the description is totally accurate (except there are indeed fire rings). Ive never seen the stars so bright in my life. And this place being ABSOLUTELY FREE makes it even better.
