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. We have 9 RV full hook up sites, 8 tent camping sites, and 6 private rooms available for rent. We are situated in the little town of Thompson Springs (population 40-50) just off of I-70, next to the Union Pacific Railroad. The RV Park is located right next to the Desert Moon Hotel, which was built in 1936 and has 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. We rent out our rooms in the hotel at www.Desertmoonrvpark.com.
The Union Pacific Railroad is right across the street, with trains passing by multiple times a day and night.
The Desert Moon has a true wild western past. The old dancehall on the property, The Cactus Caberet, once served as the town bar and brothel. We are currently in the process renovating the dancehall into a venue for live music and retreats.
There are 8-12 staff members living on site in their personal RV's at all times. We are a small community of artists, builders, and adventurers. We are constantly working to improve this property that came under our ownership in July of 2020. Feel free to come say hello and ask us about what we are building here!
Thompson Springs is a true "ghost town" with no retail or restaurants except a 7-11 off the I-70 exit. The towns of Moab and Green River are only a half hour drive away and are full of regional and eclectic restaurants and shops.
The Desert Moon is located just four miles from the Sego Canyon Rock Art in the Bookcliffs featuring pictographs and petroglyph panels from three different Native American cultures: Barrier, Fremont, and Ute.
There are miles of off-road trails accessible from our property. Some require a 4x4 vehicle or dirtbike, but many are well maintained enough for almost any vehicle.
