Plan Your Visit to Moab

The City of Moab lies in the heart of the magnificent red rock canyons and mesas of southeast Utah. It is the gateway community for Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Dead Horse Point State Park, the Colorado River, the La Sal Mountains, along with three scenic byways and thousands of square miles of incredible public lands.
Moab is a full-service, tourist-friendly community, with lots of hotels, shops and restaurants to serve your needs during your visit.

Planning Tips

• Make accommodation reservations prior to your arrival because hotels and campgrounds often fill on weekends and holidays during the busy season (May-October). Note that most campgrounds on public lands are first/come first served. Visit our camping page for more information.

• Stop by the Moab Information Center (MIC) when you arrive in Moab, to get information about recreation throughout southeast Utah, pick up maps of areas you plan to explore, and get suggestions on what to see and do. The MIC is located in the center of Moab on the corner of Main and Center Streets.

Hydration is essential in the desert, especially in summer, but even in winter. Carry and drink water during all activities, such as hiking. It is recommended that you drink 1 gallon (4 L) of water per day.

• The sun at Moab's 4,000 ft. elevation (1219 m) can be intense. We recommend using sunscreen, having sunglasses, a hat and a light long sleeve shirt for sun protection.

• Dress in layers. Temperatures in the Moab area can flucuate as much as 40 degrees in a single day, or change quickly during storm events. Summer temperatures often exceed 100 degrees F (37° C). Winters are cold, with highs averaging 30° to 50° F (-1° to 10° C), and lows averaging 0° to 20° F (-17° to -6° C).

• Don't leave pets in a vehicle when temperatures are above 65 degrees, even with the windows cracked. Temperatures inside a vehicle can rise quickly in the sun and threaten your pet with heatstroke. Provide water to pets at all times. Visit discovermoab.com for a listing of nearby kennels, veterinarians, and other pet services.
