Overview

Families and large groups will enjoy the three reservable group sites at Big Bend. Group sites A and B are located within the main campground along the Colorado River. Group Site C is located across SR 128 and up a small canyon offering a more secluded location. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, and four-wheel drive tours in the surrounding parks and public lands. The town of Moab is approximately 30 minutes away and has dining, shopping, sports rentals, tour companies and museums.

Recreation

Big Bend Campground is a great base camp for mountain biking, hiking, rafting, rock climbing, taking scenic tours, and exploring the area's backcountry roads. Those looking to relax enjoy sitting under the cottonwoods at the group site or on the small beach nearby.

Facilities

The Big Bend group areas have fire rings with grates, picnic tables, vault toilets, shade shelters, and trash removal. Sites A and B are near the river. Site C is in a side canyon, allowing for privacy. Water, dump stations and electricity are not available. Trailer and RV parking is limited. (Multiple trailers and RVs can be accommodated at the Lone Mesa Group Sites along SR 313.) Please call the Moab Field Office for more information on vehicle limitations 435-259-2100.

Natural Features

Big Bend group sites A and B offer shade and access to the Colorado River. Site C is across SR 128 and in a side canyon with no river access. All three sites have spectacular canyon views.
