Here are some ideas for visitors to better navigate Moab for parking to access downtown.
For smaller vehicles, there is a city parking lot behind the store fronts of down town. You access it from Center Street on the west side of Main Street. It is an unassuming lane before you reach 100 West, just past Sew Moab. It is a tricky little lane to find and very worth while to stroll the shops and dine in the heart of Moab.
Seek the Middle School behind City Market on 100 East. Trees line the road, so you are likely to get shade for the setting sun using this site for evening parking; then utilize the charming walking path across 300 S to wind your way into downtown Main Street.
RVs can turn east onto 100 South. At the end of the Best Western Greenwell property on 100 East, there is a dead-end with ample room to turn around and park an RV for an evening in town. It is not available for overnight parking. The sheriff’s office is in the opposite block and officers will move you along. Another spot is located on 200 South, turn west off of Main Street. Go toward the end of this dead-end road between Ramada Inn and Fiesta Mexicana. The Utah State University campus is situated on the south and much of that parking lot can be used for temporary evening parking. The businesses there are largely day use. There are some lovely walking trails in this area for a nice after dinner stroll as well. On 200 North behind the fuel station on the east side are some additional parking slots, long ones for RVs and shorter ones for other vehicles.
There are plenty of bike racks at Moab establishments. Keep your car parked, bring a lock and ride into town. Be unafraid of the sweat and helmet hair, you are on vacation, relax!
The tour companies have limited parking. Ask about complementary hotel pickups.
For those who may just be passing through — Big Semi Trucks should seek the southern Spanish Trail Shell Station for overnight emergency sleep. The former Cattlemen property no longer authorizes overnight semi Truck parking. For a snack, the Shell Station is convenient. Your next stop in town is the south Maverik Country Store which has a curb for north bound drivers to easily stop for purchasing refreshments. Slightly farther is a Dollar General with food aisles and beside the Dollar General is a Chevron convenience store. It is recommended you park just before these shops on the curb. If you are a semi truck going south on Hwy 191/Main Street, park just past the 400 East traffic light and use the traffic light to cross the road to Maverik.
