Great camping inside Sand Flats Recreation Area.

An interesting, scenic half day drive into the mountains. This is the main road that passes through the Sand Flats Recreation Area. This is a fee area, but you may not be charged if you tell them you’re just passing through. We recommend you make the optional side trip to Porcupine Rim Campground at Wpt. 03 for a spectacular view of Castle Valley. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed on Sand Flats Road, but it is mostly used to access Hell’s Revenge, trail #43, and Fins & Things, trail #44


Trail Ratings Defined

A wide, maintained road within the recreation area. Any car can do this part. Higher ground clearance is needed in the national forest.

Being a local living in Moab all year around, this is still one of our favorite areas to go for a Sunday drive. Taking the Sand Flats road all the way to the Loop road is always new, changes with the seasons and time of day too, and coming up the road or driving down it also gives a new view. Highly recommend. Today (November 13, 2022) we did hit snow on the road and muddy conditions at 10 miles and didn’t want to drive another 7 miles in those conditions so simply turned around and enjoyed the different views coming back to town.
