On our way to Arizona we stopped over in Moab, Utah at a picturesque campsite alongside the Colorado River.  Big Bend Campground is 8 miles from downtown Moab, costs $15 per night and offers some nice, scenic, easily accessible camp sites.  Falling asleep to the sound of the river alone made this a great place to stay.  We’ll definitely be back.

Number of sites: 23, some can accommodate large RVs
Reservable: No
Hookups: No.
Amenities: Vault toilets.  On-site trash.  Each site has a picnic table and metal fire grill.
Managed by: BLM

Our site (#6) offered full sun which was ideal for November but these sites tucked in the trees would be awesome during the heat of the summer.
