#15 of 36 Specialty lodging in Moab
17 miles west of Moab on Colorado River. Don't need four wheel drive but should have some ground clearance to get here. Seven bedrooms in lodge, $135 a night, two night minimum. Two 2 bedroom houses $370 per night, two night minimum. Two sweet Navajo hogans, $135 per night, two night minimum. Also have camping. $5 per night, per person. Have three side by sides you may use, six kayaks, lot of hiking, climbing, fossils, dinosaur tracks, wicked disc golf course, lots and lots, I probably can't say lots enough times to describe how many wild critters live here. Most of the time a beach, except during snow melt, incredible views and stunning night skies. A few miles from Dead Horse Point, in between Arches and Canyonlands, not far from Bears Ears, without the crowds. I've lived here ten years plus and not a day goes by I don't wake up and be incredibly thankful for where I live. Worry about other parts of your trip, but not this one, I'll take good care of you.

My motivation in visiting Base Camp was for its disc golf course. It's reputation had put it on my bucket list for years, and I finally got to go play it. It did not disappoint. Incredible views, challenging holes; really great layout on both courses. But, it was the other components that I didn't really know much about that made the place so memorable. The incredible hospitality of Tom and Linda. The kindred mindset of the other folks who take the time and effort to make the drive to get there. The amazing stars at night. The evening wildlife feeding by Tom. (One night attracted a half dozen fox, a dozen raccoons, a pair of ringtails, and a half dozen skunks!). The serene walk through the desert in the cool morning air to visit the Wind Caves. We camped this time, because all the rooms and hogans were sold out. Next time, we'll try to book earlier and get a room. But even while camping, Tom was the most gracious of hosts. He let us use the bathrooms, charge our batteries in his outlets, provided extra water, etc. Thank you Tom!

We stayed here for two nights. Exactly what we expected. Great host Tom and just a perfect get away to unplug in the Southwest canyons. Good hiking and the Colorado river at your doorstep. No complaints on the stay. I will let everyone know the trip across Hurrah Pass is not for the faint hearted. I consider myself pretty adventurous but this part was an hour of white knuckle driving. We made it out and back without having to call Tom so it was a success.

If you are looking for adventure in the beautiful landscapes of Utah, this is the place you should stay. The accomodations at the lodge are basic, so if you're looking for extravagance, consider elsewhere. However, if you're seeking outdoor adventure, spectacular scenery, and friendly hospitality, look no further. (We have not stayed in the upper and lower houses that are also available on the property, so I can't speak to those accommodations). Tom, the owner, is a great host, as well as a genuinely interesting guy with lots of stories, advice, anecdotes, and vast knowledge of the area. Activites on this property include discgolf (two amazing 18 hole courses unlike any course you have ever played), 4×4 trails to explore, fossil hunting, climbing on and venturing into the wind caves, canoeing/kayaking the Colorado river, star gazing, animal watching, and hiking or just wandering around. I highly recommend experiencing all that is the Adventure Base Camp!

We're Brits. I first gazed over Canyonlands well over 40 years ago on a vacation with my parents, and I got the bug there and then. I've longed to get down amongst this astounding, unique scenery ever since. My wife and I have visited several times, staying in Moab and driving to trailheads, 4x4 roads etc, which has been wonderful; but when we discovered Tom's Base Camp we knew we had to visit. So: we stayed in Last Hurrah, second house, on Tom's advice (we were after maximum seclusion) for four nights in November 2019 and all expectations and hopes were exceeded. To watch dawn over Dead Horse Point, Pyramid Butte etc every morning; to gaze over the seemingly placid Colorado that's created all this scenery; to hike from your doorstep; to meet Tom and his famous giant tortoise Kobae (who over-winters in San Diego); to light the fire pit as the sun sets; to just be there, amongst it all. Truly wonderful. Thank you Tom for making this corner of this extraordinary environment accessible, comfortable and welcoming, and for enabling a dream to come true. We certainly hope to be back, and I want to bring hiking friends too.

Get away from the hussle and bussle of Moab and into the spaces in between! Feel solitarily spoiled at Base Camp Adventure Lodge and escape the often times packed crowds at Arches (though still a must to see). Here you can hike to spots where it is just you and the silence. If you can manage the drive, you will be rewarded in full once you make it through the pass. Do not give up. Take your time, do not let the speeding side by sides and jeeps deter you. One rock at a time. One ditch at a time. Keep your eye ont the prize—time to contemplate the magic that is in the landscape (once you are off the road, of course!).
