From Green River, Utah we headed to stay at a commercial RV Park in Moab. The drive was easy but, for us, this place was crazy and super busy. We were “camped” about two feet from the people to our back and about four feet from the people to our front. There was no grass in between and the picnic tables were awkwardly placed atop concrete pads. Our neighbors’ table was directly next to ours. In the park’s favor, there were nice trees and a nice swimming pool. We had full hook-ups so we could leave the dogs in the trailer with air-conditioning on the days we went to the national parks. The dog area was just a dirt patch and more people should clean up after their pets because it was covered with poop and made a terrible place to exercise our border collies. We did find a nice dog park in the town adjacent to a trail along a creek.
Things I’ve Learned
- Commercial sites are going to be an exception in our traveling life.
- Delaying our visits to the National Parks until the evenings because we were working during the day had its advantages. First, a lot a people left the trailer park during the day and it was fairly quiet. We had the swimming pool to ourselves and was a nice midday break. In the evening when people are returning to the trailer park it is noisy and smelly as many folks are driving RZRs. We leave the trailer park for the national parks which are cooler and less crowded in the evening.
- The RV Park may actually refund your money if you decide to leave early, which we did. We headed out of the desert and headed for the Manti-La Sal mountains
