Sand Flats Road travels through the famous Sand Flats Recreation Area, connecting Moab to the La Sal Mountain Loop Road. This easy road provides trailhead access to many of Moab's most popular and famed trails: Baby Lions BackHell's Revenge, and Fins and Things. Porcupine Rim, Mill Creek Rim West, and Mill Canyon Rim East also connect to/from Sand Flats Road. The road has a mixed surface, including pavement, gravel, and dirt, with many washboard sections. The road drives along several exposed shelf sections and is 2-plus vehicles wide the entire way. This road is suitable for any vehicle.

Entering Sand Flats Recreation Area does require a daily fee, and camping is an additional fee.

Nine campgrounds lettered A through J, with over 120 campsites, are open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis. Only group campsites can be reserved. Camping is limited to these designated sites. The campsites have nearby vault toilets. Expect the campgrounds to fill quickly from Thursday through Monday.
