Lone 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 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.
Seasonal Closure November 29, 2022 to February 16, 2023. Seasonal closures facilitate completion of maintenance and improvement projects completed during the relatively low visitation times of the year.
