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, 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.
Big Bend Campground is a great base camp for mountain biking, hiking, rafting, 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.
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.
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.
Big Bend is near Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park. The "daily" section of the Colorado River offers half and full day river activities suitable for the whole family. The Manti-La Sal National Forest and the La Sal Mountain Loop Road provide cooler explorations during the hot summer months.
