BLM-Moab moves campsite reservation process to recreation.gov

MOAB — The Bureau of Land Management’s Utah Moab Field Office is moving group campsite reservations to the website recreation.gov, including group campsites at Goose Island, Big Bend, Onion Creek, Dewey Bridge, Lone Mesa, Horsethief, Ledge, Ken’s Lake and Windwhistle campgrounds.

Visitors who wish to make group site reservations will be able to do so online at recreation.gov starting at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

To assist visitors with planning, reservations may be made up to one year in advance of the desired reservation date (for example, group campsites for March 27, 2017, will be available for reservation starting March 27, 2016). A minimum number of people are necessary to reserve a group campsite; the minimum number varies by site.

The more than 400 individual campsites in the Moab Field Office will remain available on a first-come, first-served basis. For additional information, contact the BLM Moab Field Office at 435-259-2100.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of subsurface mineral estate throughout the nation.

The BLM’s mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under their mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In fiscal year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
