Southern Utah is an amazing place to experience wilderness and some of the best camping in the world. Late summer and early fall are the best times for perfect camping weather. Although spring can be nice there are a lot of windstorms that can be hazardous to RVs. Wherever you choose to go, make sure you visit some slot canyons! These narrow cracks and gullies in the canyon are incredible to explore.

There are so many fun and exciting things to do and see in the southern part of the state that you might have to make a few weekend trips or an extended road trip to really take it all in. To give you a starting place, here are the top 5 RV campsites to explore Southern Utah.

rv camping spots in utah

1. Moab Valley RV Resort


Whether you need an RV site, tent site, or rental, this resort has it all, including a vintage Airstream trailer available for rent. Beautiful grassy areas, picnic tables and BBQ pits are featured on each site. There are many helpful amenities in the resort including a propane filling station and a bicycle repair station. For entertainment you'll find putt putt golf, life-size chess, a playground, and a BBQ pavilion.

The resort location is conveniently located near two great national parks, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park where you can expect to find hiking and biking trails. It's just a quick drive to downtown for delicious food and drinks. After a long day of fun, relax and enjoy the scenery in the swimming pool or hot tub.

2. Leeds RV Park


At this site you have easy access to Zion National Park, Quail Creek State Park, Red Cliffs State Park, and Sand Hollow State Park. With friendly staff, large sites, and beautiful shade trees, you can easily slip into vacation mode. The park also features a shower house, laundry facility, a clubhouse with a library and a large pavilion and picnic area.

There are fantastic ATV trails just minutes away, and where the park is situated there is less wind and cooler temperatures, so relaxation is at its finest.

3. Spanish Trail RV Park


This is a great base camp for exploring Moab, Utah which is rated as one of the top tourist destinations for outdoor adventuring. There is plenty of shade to protect you from the harsh Moab sun, and the bathhouse facilities have received a 10/10 from the Good Sam RV Club, so you can be sure that relaxing and recovering from a full day of sun can easily be accomplished here.

The park also includes a dog park, pavilions, a convenience store, and large lush grass areas for picnics. You'll have easy access to the popular National Parks Arches National Park, Canyonland National Parks and Dead Horse State Park. Hiking, biking, and whitewater rafting should be on your adventure list. At sunset, be sure to catch the incredible views of the La Sal Mountains.

4. Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground


Only a half mile from the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park all you have to do is park your rig and let the outdoor adventures begin! Besides having convenient perks such as a laundromat this park features a mini campers store and even a post office! Looking for some exciting activities? There are numerous trails where you can fill your day with ATV rides or a more calming horseback ride.

Take a hike through Bryce Canyon and enjoy a series of natural amphitheaters. They are a stunning array of white and orange limestone columns and walls that have been sculpted over time by erosion. Evenings can be enjoyed by the park’s pool and hot tub or in the park bar and grill.

5. Zion Canyon Campground and RV Resort


Staying at this campsite provides one of the most beautiful settings you will see in your travels. The campground is situated along the Virgin River and provides access to explore the canyons and surrounding areas. The campground is right next to a shuttle stop which makes going into the park hassle free. Request a site right along the river bank and go for a quick dip.

You'll have easy access to trails that feature hikes of different levels, easy, intermediate and advanced, so there is something for everyone.

The campground has an excellent location as it is just a bus ride into the town of Springdale and is within walking distance of the park (1/2 mile). Across the street from the campground you’ll find a general store, an ice cream shop, and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. After dinner relax outside and watch the sunset under The Watchman, a truly stunning sight.

As an added bonus, we will suggest Capitol Reef as a personal favorite park. There is a small general store down the road in Torrey with the best local Rib Eyes! Regardless of where you end up staying, if you can, you have to check out the backcountry. It is a beautiful drive though be aware of the size of your rig as you might not make it with the switchbacks on some of the more adventurous roads.

Any of these sites would make a great weekend trip or as an extended stay and jumping off point to explore Southern Utah.
