OverviewLone Mesa Group Sites are ideal for large gatherings such as school groups or family reunions. Within close proximity to national parks and open space, outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and four-wheel drive tours in the surrounding area. Lone Mesa is 1,000 feet higher in elevation than Moab, which can mean slightly cooler temperatures. The town of Moab is approximately 30 minutes away and has dining, shopping, sports rentals, tour companies and museums.

The area has many four-wheel drive roads leading to canyons and vistas. Nearby Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point State Park have many trails for hiking, biking and OHV driving.
FacilitiesThe group areas have fire grates, picnic tables, vault toilets, shade shelters and large parking areas. The group sites do not have water, dump stations or electric hook-ups. Larger vehicles fit well at this site.
