We were in the Moab area on a weekday a few days after Labor Day to go mountain biking at Dead Horse Point State Park. We assumed "high season" was over and had not made a reservation at the park; the state park was full and the ranger at the entrance station encouraged us to check out Horsethief Campground. I'm...

Well spaced sites with basic facilities (fire pit and bench/table). Great views over the plain, choose your site heading to sunset. Quite centrally located if you want to explore Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point. Good value and fair price. Very friendly staff.

If you haven't made reservations somewhere , this is probably your best bet. This is a basic BLM campground but was pleasant place to stay for four days while we explored Canyonlands and visited Moab. We had stayed in a commercial camp-site just south of Moab and should have gone straight to Horsethief in hindsight! It is very difficult to... More

Each site does have a picnic table and a fire pit. The sites are relatively level. If you are going to hike in the area, you will be driving. The hiking trail and... More

A group of friends camped here for our weekend trip to Moab. We knew that a lot of camping sites would be full, even when we were arriving mid-day on a Thursday. We were right. Horsethief Campground was a pleasant surprise. It is bare bones, very clean vault toilets, some running water and a little bit of a drive to... More

We had wanted to camp at Dead Horse State Park but it was by reservation only and all sold out! Bummer...So we checked out the close by BLM campgrounds.."Cowboy Camp" was just a little (husbands opinion) too rustic....My opinion. Way too rustic! So we ended up at "Horsethief Campground"...We thought $15.00 nightly for no water, pit toilets only, and trash... More
