Stayed at Big Bend campground, arrived early on a Monday for a spot it was wide open by 10:00. So you know the name comes from the Big Bend in the Colorado River, Great for swimming in BUT NOT WITHOUT A PFD EVER!!! Has the most yearly river deaths in Moab (or so I was told) due to the huge back eddy and under current created. Use your head. There are quite a few BLM campgrounds along this stretch of river, by Tuesday morning there were open spots in all but Goose Island. If you arrive in the early AM mid week you should have time to shop around and find some shady spots. I miss judged the path of the sun at Big Bend and we cooked in the afternoon.

Ian Juul's report 5/30/19 was not an isolated problem. Our group of 50+ aged adults have camped at this group site for he last 30+ years with our children when they were young now as empty nesters. We had exactly 37 adults as our group picture affirms. The "official" threatened us too claiming to his superiors we had 70+ persons in our group. A complete fabricated lie. Our group is friendly, responsible, clean professionals with a love and respect for the outdoors. Ladies of our group were yelled at, threatened and treated with no respect. The "official" clearly has a problem with women (I wish I was there). Officials came by the camp, hands on their holsters too. This type of behavior warrants a letter to our Congressman and Senators. We should carefully screen "officials" to gain friends fo the environment to bolster the U.S. Forest, BLM and National Park budgets not scare them away! Bad official(s) aside, this is a gem along the Colorado River to be loved, shared and enjoyed with respect by everyone! The site is second to none for large groups and there are small individual sites near there too!

We too experienced this guy on Saturday night around 9:30. A man pulled up to the site and said he was a "Ranger" and wanted to see the person with the reservation. He did not introduce himself, he did not provide identification, he was aggressive, rude and threatening to us as well. He apparently had an issue with the combination of vehicles, campers and the following morning the actual rangers came to investigate the complaint that the "Camp Host" had made. I have no idea what the "Camp Host" said, but you would have though we were bank robbers or something far more serious the way they came into camp. Not going to go into detail, but not impressed by the response from the Rangers. I was really glad to see the prior review, cause it was such a surreal experience, I thought maybe it was just me? It was so bad that I was compelled to write a review. We too are professionals in our 50's and 60's and could not believe how poorly Moab and the BLM was represented by this experience.

Three parties of us (7 people in total) stayed here on Thursday (May 30, 2019), Friday (May 31) and Saturday (June 1) occupying Campsites 12, 21 & 22. On Saturday Night around 10pm an Official driving a Toyota FJ Cruiser claiming to ‘manage’ the site arrived at Campsite 21 & 22 and was the most aggressive, rudest and intimidating person we have ever met. We were busy with a fire and doing the normal campsite stuff with a few beers and talking etc and he arrived with a bright flashlight in our eyes and immediately started shouting at us as we had placed a small 2 man pop-up trailer tent under some trees next to the fire pit. Apparently this is not allowed?? He demanded that we immediately move this, failing which we would be required to immediately vacate the whole campsite. If we had messed-up we apologized but nothing was done intentionally and there were no advisory / notices around saying that this wasn’t permitted. What is the difference between a tent setting-up under the trees like others were doing and a 2 man pop-up trailer. Anyway, we remained respectful and complaint and moved the pop-up as requested but we wish to complain about the really poor attitude this man had. It isn’t professional nor is it required to act this way. We were all quite upset by it and the ladies in our group felt threatened by this persons behavior. It was really something to see. Unbelievable really. We are all professional and law abiding persons in our 50’s and this experience left a really bad taste.

I have mixed feelings about this place. Keep in mind we were here over Memorial Day weekend. The site, #18, we were in should have been a double site with #19. It was uncomfortably close. Fortunately, 4 of the five nights we were there, our friends were in #19. We bought the last night to avoid having strangers that close. We have a 28ft travel trailer with one push out. No hook ups available. We are non smokers, non drinkers, no loud music, love our guitars and quiet starry nights kind of people. This park barely passed our criteria. It's a first come, first serve campground. It's situated on a slim slice of land between the highway and the Colorado River. On either side is beautiful red rock. It's just 10 minutes outside of Moab but you couldn't tell. Besides the traffic, it feels remote. In order to get a spot, it helps to go in early and simply ask people when they are leaving. If you find a site, you can fill out and reservation slip and clip it under the current reservation. Then pay for the site you actually want once you've done a search. Be polite and only leave reservation slips on the sites you pay for. Good luck.
