About Desert Moon Hotel and Trailer Park LLC

The Desert Moon Hotel and RV Park has been serving the greater Moab area since the Coal Mining days of the early 1930's, with 20 RV hook up sites, 10 tent camping sites, and 4 private rooms available for rent. You could say our little park is pretty "Retro" but you could also call it mighty "Quaint" as it is situated in the little town of Thompson Springs (population 40-50) just off of I-70, next to the Union Pacific Railroad. We are located right next to the Old Desert Moon Hotel, which was built in 1936 and served many travelers, miners, railroad workers, truck drivers, and tourists over the years.

Shade trees, electricity, water, and sewer utilities are available at each RV parking spot.  We also have modern restrooms and shower facilities to accommodate tent campers and smaller pop-ups. Ask us about private rooms available for rent in our old boardinghouse, the historical Desert Moon Hotel.
