Moab Field Office

General Field Office Information

Located in the heart of the Colorado Plateau, the Moab Field Office encompasses 1.8 million acres of stunningly scenic canyon country. Carved by the Colorado and Green Rivers, Moab’s public lands include a vast variety of arches, natural bridges, mesas, and spires. The Moab Field Office is a mecca for recreation, including off-highway vehicles, mountain biking, climbing, base jumping, hiking, horse-back riding, and river rafting.  In addition to supporting millions of visitors and hundreds of recreation related jobs in the local communities, Moab also supports a wide array of land uses such as oil and gas production, mining, and livestock grazing. The Field Office is known for evidence of dinosaurs and features the Mill Canyon Interpretive Track Site and Bone Trail. These canyonlands are home to many types of desert wildlife and the area supports a healthy population of big horn sheep, and can provide great opportunities for wildlife viewing during the fall.  

Spring and fall are especially busy and popular times to be in Moab. To help keep this area beautiful and be respectful of other visitors, please recreate responsibly. See our Moab Camping Guide for more information. For information related to camping along the Moab Daily section of the Colorado River please see our River Recreation-Moab Daily Map
