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 construction process. Construction has just started and will be completed as soon as possible, given supply chain issues and contractor time lines.

Future park visitors to the area can expect one modern campground, flush restrooms, showers, 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 is once again utilizing their Timed Entry Pilot Program. Tickets will be required during certain times of day and year. See the following link for more information
