“As the Owner always replies, You Get What you Pay for!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We stayed 2 nights in a cabin. We normally stay in the KOA, however this was a last minute trip and these were the only available cabins in town. The cabins served their purpose, however it is cooled by a clogged up dirty swamp cooler. The entire campground smells of cat litter including the office. Bathrooms are unstocked and VERY unclean. As owners of 2 Jeeps and an RZR 4 we frequent Moab often. My advise to tourist is pay a little more and use KOA or if it is winter time, Archway Inn has great rates and wonderful rooms. This campground would be nice due to location however it lacks TLC.

We deeply regret that this Gentleman had a unpleasant experience at our campground. We are family owned and operated and love to camp ourselves. We are Moab's oldest and largest campground. 50,000 people a year can't be wrong.
Please read the next review. Hope to see you soon.

We love happy campers!

We stayed 2 nights at Slickrock and since we didn't have camping gear we got one of the little 'cabins'. It was $50/night and was basically a room with 2 beds, a window unit AC, a light bulb and an outlet, but for that price it is what I expected and was just fine. There is a picnic table and fire ring but we didn't use those. We had brought our own linens and towels. Next time we will remember pillows. The room was very hot so we turned on the AC and went to get dinner while it cooled off. The AC was very noisy but fine for us since we are not picky. The folks at the campground are very friendly and the showers were fine (and hot). There is free wi-fi by the office which pleased my teens. This is one of the closest campgrounds to Arches NP. Will definitely stay there again as it is a bargain for a room in Moab.

Were do i start. First of all we had confirmed cabin #C3 reservations, to arrive last thursday evening (over 100 degree temps by the way). Upon arriving we received the key to our cabin. Our cabin had other guests property still in it. Kind of unfortunate the staff would give a key out to a cabin that is currently occupied with other peoples personal property. (Good thing we are honest) We then informed the staff that our cabin was allready taken and it did not appear that the staff was aware of it. We were given the keys to cabin 12 (Air conditioning did not work) and told to come back tomorrow morning to talk to a manager. Well unfortunately we had plans to go river rafting the following morning and were not able to return. So we called the phone number that we were given and once again got an answering machine. Between myself and other people in our group we had left messages several times upon arrrival and prior to arrival regarding other questions and not one call was ever returned. As a result we did not stay in Cabin 12, we went and got an amazing room at the Adventure inn just down the street for relatively not much more. The next evening we tried to come and take care of the issue again. You guessed it no manager on site again only this time were were told that we were suposed to be in a different Cabin, not our original confirmed cabin of C3, not C12 but C9. What a joke. Fortunately for us the gal (Amber?) who was on duty was willing enough to listen to us and did credit us our money back for the night we did not stay. Apparently the peoples property who was allready in C3 were originally supposed to be staying in Cabin C12 and surprise, surprise it had not been cleaned upon their arrival, nor was it cleaned several hours later after going on a short hike. As a result they were moved to our cabin C3. (very nice people by the way). And were never informed that they needed to move back to C12 before our arrival.

Horrible customer service except for Amber, horrible bathrooms and showers, horrible reservation tracking, horrible attention to safety and security, horrible customer service (never returning of any phone calls), Horrible upkeep- Air conditioning works poorly, if at all and very very loud, (look at the filters on the back of the AC units).

The only reason I am giving this rating a 2/5 is: 1-for Amber's great customer service and willingness to help us out. 2- because of the potential the property has.

I am sure the owner will post something to explain like in other negative comments but, it is what it is.

Room Tip: Cabin's towards the C12,13,14 side smell like sewer. If you stay here get one toward the lower n...

Stayed in cabin. Choose here because website says AIR CONDITIONED CABINS. But it's a swamp cooler! Keeps the room cool yes, and damp! Very Damp!
Bathrooms are HORRIBLE AND GROSS AND DIRTY AND OLD AND DIRTY AND GROSS AND OLD AND DIRTY... you get the point.
Cabins are tiny! Could use a bookshelf or shelving to put our stuff and be organized but it is a room. Nothing more. The facilities at KOA and FAR superior as I was there last year.

We encourage all of our guest to take a look at our facilities before we sign them in. We are Moab's oldest and largest rv park for a reason. WE LOVE HAPPY CAMPERS! For a more realistic overview of our park please keep reading. Hotel rooms start at $139 and go to over $550. Hence the word "Economy" in "Economy Cabins". Hope to see you soon.

The location of this place is great. It's minutes from Zion Natl Park and not far from Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point, where sunset is awesome.

The owner is usually working and is a nice guy that will help you any way he can. He works hard to keep the place clean and neat.

The "rooms" are campsites but they are great. The place is very popular so make reservations or get there early.

I stayed here first in 2008 and have been back at least once every year since. In the last 4 years I estimate I have spent 30 nights here.
The atmosphere is pretty good. Being a younger male traveling with like minded people I look for different things. You can always find some people to hang out with by the pool or have a beer with later. The shade trees are nice and definitely an advantage.

My most recent trip was marred by the extremely uncouth and rude older woman working the front desk. This was early August 2011 ( I hope she has been fired). She treated us like criminals and was combative from the beginning. Moab is a 27 hour drive for me and dealing with her was not a welcome experience. If she is still there the next time I come down I will be finding a new campground. Missy ( I think that was her name) used to be there and was always a pleasure, She even remembered our names from year to year. Oh well.

Showers and toilets are dirty but manageable. There is usually no paper towels in the bathrooms. The pool and hot tubs have always been clean when I am there. Prices are pretty good for campsites.

My suggestions are as follows: Cleaner bathrooms. renovate some of the decrepit tent sites. Do something about the dust. Lay down rocks or something. More furniture in the pool area.
You guys have the potential for something amazing. Just put some more effort in so it is less rough around the edges. You will attract more family's and groups that way.

Slickrock Campground has SHADE whereas many of the newer campgrounds don't.

The showers were hot every time for me.

The cabins are cozy and very reasonably priced. The staff really works hard to help with special requests from the guests.

Tip: If you have a cottonwood tree allergy, you may want to call ahead if you are staying in the spring time to see if you are camping before, during or after the cottonwoods bloom. The amount of cotton in the air and on the ground can be really quite incredible (and flammable).

Manage your expectations. This is a pretty large campground, not your very own private tent site in the desert. Try to be both respectful and tolerant of your neighbors.

Room Tip: A cabin is worth the upgrade price over a tent site. You get a dry place to throw all your stuff if...
