NOTICE: Utahraptor State Park is currently in the planning phases for major construction and amenities improvements. All areas of this park remain in an extremely primitive state. Please check back with us at a later date for updates on our improvements
Welcome to Utahraptor State Park!
In the 2021 legislative session the Utah State Legislature passed HB 257, which created Utahraptor State Park, located roughly 15 miles northwest of Moab in Grand County.
This new state park includes popular recreation spots such as the Dalton Wells and Willow Springs areas. Utah State Parks believes that — with proper planning and coordination with partners — we can better protect the area while maintaining its recreational value.
The area is currently undeveloped with only primitive recreation options. We ask visitors to remain patient during the planning process. Construction is expected
to begin later this year.
While it is still in the planning process, future park visitors to the area can expect one
modern campground, restrooms, office and entrance station, and trailheads for access
to the nearby OHV and mountain bike trail systems.
If you are planning to visit the area be advised Arches National Park has created a new Timed Entry program. Tickets will be required during certain times of day and year. See the following link for more information https://www.nps.gov/arch/planyourvisit/timed-entry-reservation.htm
