There is no water available for RV fillups anywhere at Dead Horse Point. 

Nestled within a grove of junipers, the Kayenta Campground at Dead Horse Point State Park offers a peaceful, shaded respite from the surrounding desert.  All 21 campsites offer lighted shade structures, picnic tables, fire rings, and tent pads. All sites are also equipped with RV electrical hookups (20/30/50 AMP). Modern restroom facilities are available, and hiking trails lead directly from the campground to various points of interest within the park including the West Rim Trail, East Rim Trail, Wingate Campground, or the Visitor Center.

A maximum number of 8 people and one “camping unit” are allowed at each site. Dead Horse Point State Park has defined “camping units” as RVs, camping trailers, pop-up trailers, sprinter vans, and any other vehicle that has been built, or augmented, for the sole purpose of long-term camping. A combination of one camping unit and tents may be used as long as the tents are only on the tent pad or asphalt section of the camping site. No exceptions to these standards.

Things to Know

  • Water is not available to fill up RVs.  The water table is too low for a well so the park must truck it up every day.  The closest town to fill up at is Moab, UT.
  • Pets must be leashed and attended to at all times while outdoors.  Pets may not be left outside unattended. Dog waste bags are available throughout the park.
  • Fires are permitted in the established fire pits of the park; however, wood can not be gathered from the environment.  Bundles of wood are sold at the Visitor Center and Entrance Station or in Moab.
  • Please keep your campsite clean.  While we are not in “bear country,” any animal that gets human food can become a nuisance animal.  Food and trash must be kept in hard-sided containers or vehicles.
  • All campsites in the park require a reservation.
  • We do not have a gate that closes at 10:00 pm like some parks, but quiet hours are maintained from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am.
