    You can rent a nice fully furnished big 5 bdrm 3 bath home in Moab with a group, for about the same price as camping collectively. I've been wanting to do that for years.

    Oh, and count me in for the entire week as well. :D

    That is true but you wouldn't have the parking for 6 people with trucks trailers and etc.....plus I bring 6 people when I come so I can't stuff 6 of us in a regular room........plus if we get a group site we would have everyone there and everything we need to work on any possible breakdowns.....PLUS.......bonfire party.

    ok I will start researching all the possible sites and see when we can and need to reserve a spot. Even if its only 5-6 of us it would be much cheaper than each getting their own spot plus a HELL of a lot more fun.

    Historically the week before Memorial day has been a good weekend for us as far as weather and crowds. Of course that can change with just a couple big groups. It's always a gamble. It is much more likely to be hot in June though, that's my concern.

    Memorial Day is May 30 next year.

    There used to be two large campsites on the eastern side of Canyonlands Campgrounds.

    I have to change my runs around, can't make Truckhaven, son is getting married in February. Moab, Gilmer, and SMORR is where I am shooting for with the 2016 runs.

    My oldest daughter wants to attend with us, I already told her we would get a cottage.

    I just checked the Canyonlands RV Resort and Campground website and they do accommodate Groups, Rallies, & Clubs. They have a form to fill out on the website, and with my history calling has also been great.

    Super excited to see what you find, however, if one doesn't stick out above the rest we could always try monopolizing the back part of Canyonlands Campground sites T1-T11

    I plan to attend Moab and Gilmer for 2016. We need to avoid May 28th and 29th for Moab as we found Memorial Day weekend tends to make it crowded and harder to wheel.

    Just got off the phone with Canyonlands Campground and they said they will begin accepting reservations for the 2016 season on August 1, 2015. They also said they do accommodate group reservations (and added that reserving that early would give us first picks of the whole facility). :D

    I'm bidding for being there from the 14th - 22nd
