Gold Bar Campground is located off Utah Scenic Byway 279, a 14 mile drive from downtown Moab. The campground is situated right along the banks of the beautiful Colorado River. Fishing, boating and rafting are popular activities here and a boat launch is available for use. Recreational opportunities on dry land are also plentiful with hikes leading to Corona Arch, Bowtie Arch, Pinto Arch and Jeep Arch all nearby.

There are 9 individual campsites available at Gold Bar. The majority are bordered from behind by a long sandy beach that separates the campsites from the river. Each site includes a picnic table and fire ring. Aside from vault toilets and dumpsters there are amenities, hookups or water available at Gold Bar. Sites are suitable for tents, vans and smaller trailers. No reservations are possible.

In addition to the 9 individual campsites, 4 group sites are also available. These sites are perfect for large parties and feature a shaded area with several picnic tables. Unlike the regular sites, reservations are possible (and recommended) for the group sites. Click here for more information.
