    10 miles north of Moab, right across the street from 313 entrance to Canyonlands (White Rim Trail).
    Shell station on site, fuel up on your way out...

    I've been there, it was a great place though I would have preferred to be closer to town for bars and nightlife.

    I've stayed at Slick Rock Campground several times. Last summer we stayed at Riverside Campground but that place was supposed to be bulldozed cause of a new mega-hotel being built.

    Sigh...I'm hoping to make a trip to Moab in March or April. The severe cold in the Mtn is getting to me! Have a great time!

    I like to use a place called Base Camp. It's over on the other side of Hurrah Pass. They rent ATVs there, and apparently if you're nice to them they'll let you drive one over a cliff

    That is what I've always done. Just making sure I wasn't missing something while being the dirty motorcyclist and gawking at the girls.
