About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Large Covered Porch

Located in a quiet ghost town 30 minutes north of down town Moab. Very nice, newly remodeled home. Ideal for the outdoor persons who like to bicycle for many miles and leave from the front door, perfect also if you have ATVS. There are hundreds of miles of back country ATV trails that can be accessed from the front door. We are only 3 miles from some of the areas best ancient Indian pictographs and 3 miles north of a cluster of some of the areas best dino tracks

About walter m Williams

I have traveled to all 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii, The scenery in this area ranks with some of the best I have seen.

walter m Williams purchased this mobile home in 2011

Why walter m Williams chose Thompson

In 2012 myself and 8 others left from the front door and rode ATS to Arizona, which was a 504 ride each way. Where else in the world can you do that?

What makes this mobile home unique

In this Ghost town you are surrounded by government property and as a result a tremendous amount of freedom

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My teenage son and I loved our three-night stay at this perfectly appointed home away from home! After a delicious dinner in Green River, 25 minutes away, we stocked up on groceries in that town, and never paid for a meal until after we checked out! (highly recommended, as long as you don't mind making your meals, since nothing is close, and no food/services at the National Parks anyways.) Very comfortable beds, great setup. We never even turned on the TV! As others have shared, we also highly recommend seeing the ancient rock art up the road, and checking out the ghost town in Thompson Springs and further up the road in Sego Springs. Loved this place, grateful for others' great reviews to convince us that this was the place for us too!

Great value, loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family. It was so nice to come back to hot showers and comfy beds after long days of hiking. It's about 35 or 40 minutes from Moab, but because we stayed here, we discovered some new trails further north of Moab, that we wouldn't have found otherwise. Our kids loved the Dinosaur Stomping Grounds, and the trail to that is only about 8 or 9 miles south of I-70, so much closer to this house than to Moab. The Sego Canyon Native American rock art is amazing, and it's only a few minutes from this house.

This place had everything we needed, including wi-fi. Plenty of dishes and pots/pans in the kitchen, and lots of towels in the bathrooms. The RV park where this house is located is quiet and clean. We weren't there during the daytime, but we never heard anyone making noise at night. This place is an excellent value in the Moab area, and we would stay here again.

So much more than a mobile home!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the fact that this is listed as a mobile home, it is hard to tell that is what it is. Everything looks brand new, amazing amenities, and super comfortable beds and couches.

David was so easy to work with, and was helpful with some issues I had with the website when making the reservation.

He also let us know about the Indian writing just up the road from the house, and I'm so glad he told us, as there were no signs about it otherwise.

We were scheduled to stay there two nights, but got caught in a blizzard and had to cancel one night. We were sorry that our schedule didn't allow us to stay the second night, as it felt like we were at home!

Such great location too! Short drive down to Moab. I looked at a few places to stay closer to Moab, and they were so much more expensive, while not having as much room or having as many amenities.

If you want to go to Arches, you're much better off staying in Thompson!
