South Carolina to Moab

We are planning a trip to Moab this summer. As of now the plan is to stay for a week . Because we will be traveling in a motor home, and our RZR will be the only mode of transportation . I would like to find a full hookup campground close to the trails and town .

If anyone has some suggestions. Please share them .

Thanks

Re: South Carolina to Moab

If your rzr isn't street legal you will want to stay at Archview campground north of town on Hwy. 191. About 10 miles north of Moab. It's the only CG with access to trails right from camp. You can access several days worth of trails from there. If you have license plates on it, you will find many campgrounds in Moab to choose from. You didn't say when you were going, but if it's between June and September, you won't see much traffic on the trails. It is HOT during the summer months. My first time out there 10 years ago was in early July. 103+ degrees every day we were there.

Re: South Carolina to Moab

We went in 2015 and are going back in June.

I would highly recommend finding a way to get your RZR to other trails. You will have lots of great riding fairly close to archview campground, however, if your driving 40+hrs to come ride, it would be a shame to not venture further out.

I'm not a guy that is down with riding long distances on the road in my RZR (legal or not) so I would look into renting a truck/suv to pull your RZR (maybe a tick gray on rental car policies doing this ), or perhaps renting a Uhaul truck to haul it around for a few days

Re: South Carolina to Moab

There are a couple people offering transportation to and from trails for a fee. Otherwise I would look into a south dakota plate. (or was it north dakota?)

There are a number of amazing trails that you will miss without being able to transport your rzr there. At least take a day to drive your motorhome to the parking lot at the exit of hells revenge and run that trail. I believe you can drive your rzr on the road to pay the fee and enter the trail. Do not run it backwards.

Yes, South Dakota plate is correct. Just got one for my General for my Moab trip next month. I agree, if you are driving that far, you have to find a way to get to other trails. Fins and Things and Hells Revenge are bucket list trails for the true slick rock riding experience. And yes, you can ride from one to the other on the paved section of Sand Flats Rd. Poison Spider is another.
You "could" get to PS from Archview, by riding Gold Bar Rim, Golden Spike to Poison Spider, but then you would have to turn around and come back. That would be a loooong day of riding, and would need to take extra gas along with you. Best to start at the PS trail head, and ride back to camp from there.

Re: South Carolina to Moab

We made our 1st trip to Moab last year. You need to be able to get around out there, I would suggest a South Dakota plate. We were going to rent a Uhaul since it was the cheapest rental but the plate was cheaper and more convenient. Archview was great but a bit pricey we had their best sites which have the better views. Next year we will stay on the south end of Moab. Metal Masher is great but start and finish are miles apart like Poison Spider not being street legal you have to back track.

We've stayed in a condo on the south end of town our last couple of trips to Moab. It's definitely the way to do it if you have others along to split the cost. I think it was about $280 per night, split between three couples. Fully furnished except for food in the refrigerator for less than $100/night/couple.

Re: South Carolina to Moab

I suggested renting a house or condo and the wife wanted to take the motorhome. We are going back next year and may boondock a night or 2 in the White Wash area. Archview has their deluxe sites facing Arches National Park at about the price of sharing a house but the view every morning was worth it. The campground I'm planning to stay next trip is about 1/2 the cost.

Re: South Carolina to Moab

I do like Archview as well. On a couple of our guy's only trips we have stayed in one of their small cabins. It's cozy with the bunk bed and two cots, but with the four of us that figures to be about $15 per night per guy. Would never work with the women folk along...

Re: South Carolina to Moab

Really if you could camp close to town I’d just cruise in the RZR to the trails. Blinkers, horn, moab sticker, and a plate. I liked being at moab rim campground as it was not mush driving to anything. From there your under 5 miles to hells revenge, fins and things, or moab rim. behind the rocks and poison sprider(would highly recommend completing the trifecta) are a more like 10 miles. The drive to poison spider wouldn’t be bad as most of it is through town then couple miles on 191 and you turn onto a little twisty black top by the river. Fins and things is okay. Its not a priority for me there are way to many other fun trails.

Re: South Carolina to Moab

We camped the first year at Archview and it was great. You can get to a lot of trails, but none of the noteworthy trails south and you can't get to Sand Flats road area either. Now we rent a condo and each pull a trailer with RZR so we can go to any trail.

Re: South Carolina to Moab

Thanks for all the info !
We have considered making our RZR street legal for this trip. Still not a 100 % sure though . How many road miles is it from Arch view to Hell Revenge ?

Re: South Carolina to Moab

We're in Moab now, 36 degrees and snowing! Street legal in Moab also requires insurance. Signs throughout Moab promote being street legal and slow speeds in town. Rally on the Rocks almost lost its permit because of speeds and noise. Slow and quiet please, we've been riding here since 2006 and are already planning next year's ride. We have 10 SXS and 1 quad in the group.

It's 22 miles, I just Google Mapped it! If you don't have DOT tires that will hold up to the pavement it's not worth it, IMHO. Off road tires will be chewed up in no time.
