On August 5th, I booked 3 nights at this campground arriving October 19 2020. On August 8th, a mere 3 days later, I discovered that I needed to change my plans and wanted to cancel my reservation. Their cancellation policy states: "If notice is received by 12pm MST 5 days prior to arrival: Full refund less $20 service fee per site. If notice is received less than 5 days prior to arrival: Full refund less the first nights stay per site." After emailing them to say I wanted to cancel my reservation, I discovered that Policy is OLD and no longer applies. The campground want to keep your entire deposit, which is the total cost. Their website also states that they only require 1 night deposit to hold your spot but doesn't allow you to change the amount being charged to your credit card, which is the total cost of your stay. Somewhat deceiving in my opinion and very disappointing. Not sure why they feel compelled to keep my money with more than 2 months notice - they must be afraid they can't release the space - that to me would signal problems. NO customer service - leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

We enjoyed our stay at Up the Creek for the most part, it was really nice to be so close to everything (I normally stay on the south end of Moab). Luckily we were only at the campground in the mornings and evenings otherwise the construction noise would have been unbearable. Positives - great vegetation, trees, grassy patches - right next to mill creek, and mill creek path - showers + bathrooms - washing station for dishes - carts to bring gear from car to site - bike rack that you can lock bikes to - plenty of tent space for a couple small tents or a larger tent Negatives - VERY loud construction/destruction noise from the middle school revamp that is directly across from the CG. The only day they didn't work was on Sunday, and all the other evenings (even Saturday) they worked until long after dark. - it's a little weird being so close to your neighbors (particularly if they stay up late and talk all night) - the sand in the campsite gets into everything

A nice affordable place to camp within Moab. Bathrooms were clean and the campsite level. It was surprisingly quiet considering we were two blocks from Main St. That made access to restaurants easy. Overall, a good place to stay.

We stayed at this campground for 5 nights. It is the best! We had a private site at the back. It's walk-in only, so it's very quiet. They have wonderful, clean, hot showers, a utility sink to do dishes with hot water--stocked with dish soap and dish drainers. They also have an ice chest on site to buy ice. It is clean and well cared for. The ground is very rocky, so be sure to have a good pad to sleep on. It's in walking distance to downtown. This is THE place to stay if you want to camp in Moab. Convenient to Arches and Canyonlands.

we stayed here 3 nights. The facilities are decent and clean. You park your car a short distance from the campsite and they provide a wheelbarrow to carry your stuff. It is a pretty easy walk to town. We had great weather, that always helps when your camping!
