As I have stated in the report, we stayed the week in Moab at Moab Valley RV Resort. It is at the Junction of 128 and 191 at the north end of Moab.

I have nothing but good things to say about Moab Valley RV Resort. The front desk staff were exceptional, the facilities; Washrooms, showers, laundry, pool & hot tub, were all top notch. I took the time to walk the entire facility and base the following recommendations for tent sites and cabins on tree shelter (shade) and location in the resort. I would not recommend the uncovered tent sites due to their lack of shelter from wind and sun.
Covered Tent sites to book by site number in order of preference; 35, 33, 32, 18, 16, and 12 (in that order).
Cabins: 8, 9, 1, 7, 2, 4, 5, 6, 11, 26 (in that order).
Each site has a Bar-B-Q that you can use charcoal in. No wood fires are allowed due to the so called "nature preserve" behind the campground that has burnt down before. This would be the only drawback, but not a deal breaker for me.
I was in Canyonlands Campground and had a good look around. The only advantage that I could see was it's proximity to restaurants and pubs, as in walking. By comparison it was more crowded, the cabins not as nice, and the biggest turn off was the FOUL smelling outhouses in the tenting area. It would be like setting up your tent next to a livestock trailer, NO THANKS. They did have much better tree coverage than Moab Valley and you can burn wood in the fire pits.
