3 reasons why you should visit Moab during the winter season – listing all the details below on this famous travel destination.
Moab is a small city located in southeastern Utah, just four miles from the entrance to the famous Arches National Park.
We visited Moab in January, with temperatures typically ranging from mid 40s during the day, to as cold as 15 degrees at night. If you do visit during the colder months, be sure to plan accordingly, packing warm clothes, extra blankets, and spiked shoes if you have them.
Whether you are visiting in the winter or summer season, be sure to stay hydrated. It is easy to become dehydrated when hiking in the desert.
We camped at Devils Garden Campground during our stay at Arches National Park. We highly recommend this campground as the views were absolutely stunning! The campground is first-come, first-served January through March. We stayed in spot #20 and were able to enjoy a gorgeous 360 degree view of both the red rocks and snow covered mountain ranges. From the months of April through December, be sure to reserve a spot well in advance to ensure a stay at this campground.
