We camped at Sun Outdoors Moab Downtown RV Park and Campground (previously known as Canyonlands RV Resort and Campground) in Moab, Utah in October 2020 in our Airstream.

We would usually boondock in Moab, but snow was in the forecast, so we opted for an RV park with full hookups. This is a review of our stay at Canyonlands RV Resort and Campground (aka Sun Outdoors Moab Downtown RV Park).

We had previously stayed at other locations in Moab in our Airstream.

We also did an amazing hike on the Grandstaff Trail to the Morning Glory Arch, which we highly recommend!! This is an area outside of Arches National Park.
