We loved the trailer. Very comfortableand clean. Everything in it look new
This is our third stay at this property. We love its location, we love its Vibe, and we love the owners and the people who work here. Everything is well thought out and works well. It's clean and quite.
A great place to watch the sun rise and set or see the stars.
We'll be back!
Clean, quiet, comfortable, exactly how it had been pictured in the online ads!
I've been wanting to visit Arches my whole life. When I began researching motels and lodging near Moab, I started to realize that making this trip may be more expensive than I had thought. When I saw the Ballard Campground option, and the carriage fifth wheel for such a reasonable price, I booked it immediately! I stayed six nights, and went in and out of Arches and Canyonlands all week long, just absolutely wonderful! The campground is convenient, right off of the interstate, and there is a gas station and 7-Eleven right there. I had hoped to travel to the west side of Canyonlands to Horseshoe Canyon, and hike out to see the Great Gallery, but time and money would not allow. However, Dave at the Ballard Campground gave me a map that led me just a few miles North into Sego Canyon, where there are several fascinating examples of ancient Indian art, I spent at least 2 hours out there! So, thank you for that Dave! I just returned home to Florida, and I am longing to come back to Utah! I would certainly stay at the Ballard RV campground again, and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a less expensive yet equally comfortable way to stay near Moab and the National Parks. My dream vacation was everything I had hoped it would be, and having a clean comfortable quiet camper of my own to come back to at the end of a long day of hiking was perfect!
This was our first time staying in an rv. There are a few adjustments to make to your usual habits but the owner, Dave, is wonderful and showed us how everything works. Definitely bigger than a hotel room. There are also nice showers in the office if you prefer a long rinse, as well as laundry facilities. It does take 30-40 minutes to drive to the parks or Moab but it worked well for us as a base for exploration of the area. Ask Dave about the scenic drive. It ended up being the highlight of our short stay; don’t miss it!
Very easy even for newbies!
As my title suggests, we have never stayed in a travel trailer before and it turned out to be easier than I thought.Dave showed us how to operate everything in just a few minutes and we were set.The appliances were brand new and easy to operate, gas stove was small but efficient, toilet was different but again easy to use, shower was interesting. There is only 5 gallons of hot water at a time so you get good at taking short, fast showers. Plenty of room and the bed was comfortable. They even provide coffee! Yeah!! Beautiful area too.
Love Ballard Rv
Great affordable place to stay. Quiet, clean and simple
First time to stay in RV. Had a couple of questions that were answered promptly. Loved the location, and laundry facility. Will highly recommend this camp ground to friends.
