Modern restroom facilities are located within easy walking distance.

Things to Know

  • Dead Horse Point does not have a natural water source.  Please conserve water while staying at the yurts.  The spigots should be used for drinking, cooking and cleaning, please do not play with the water or use it for bathing.
  • Pets are not allowed within the yurts.  Pets must also be attended to at all times while in the park so they can not be left in cars or leashed outside the yurts.  If you would like to spend the night in the park with your furry friend, consider the Wingate or Kayenta Campgrounds.
  • 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 down in Moab.  Bring your own camp chairs to enjoy your fire.
  • Help us out by keeping your yurt clean.  Please sweep the floor before you leave and cleaning spray and rags are available to wipe up any spills.  Cooking must be done outside and no open flames are allowed in the yurts.  Gas grills are provided for cooking use.  Keep indoor furniture indoors.
  • Heating and cooling units exist in each yurt.  Please turn them off upon departure.
  • Trash collection is costly at the park.  Please consolidate and compact trash before putting it in our dumpsters or take it with you to a town.
