First Come-First Served Camping —- Dead Horse Point State Park’s busy season runs from February to November.  During this time the reserveable sites in the campground are often booked solid (reservations for sites open four months in advance.)  For those who didn’t get a reservation, the park has four nonreserveable sites available on a first come-first served basis, potentially more if cancellations happen, however; because these sites can be booked anywhere from one to fourteen days, we can not guarantee what number of sites will be available each day.  When first come-first served sites are available, a wait list is started when the visitor center opens, 8 am, and the sites are sold at 10 am if the leaving occupants do not extend their stay.  The wait list and selling of sites can only be done in person.  If you do not have a reservation but are interested in a site at the park, arrive early and get on the wait list.  If you can’t arrive early, call the park visitor center (435-259-2614) to check the current availability.


Did you know? There is no significant natural source of water up here on the mesa. Dead Horse Point State Park must truck in all of its water from Moab. Due to these limited resources, showers and RV water hookups are unavailable and we can not have RV’s filling up.  If you want water in your RV, campgrounds and gas stations in Moab are the closest places to fill up.
