I also stayed at red cliffs lodge and agree that it's not cheap but we'll worth it! The scenery and accommodations are top notch and of course you can just walk up the hill to bronco HQ! You will love the offroadeo!
I stayed in town, there were no rooms available at Red Cliffs when I went, and the price for Red Cliffs was a bit steep for me even if a room had been available. It was about a 30 minute drive from town to get out there in the morning so no big deal to get there on time. The drive is quite gorgeous so to me that was a bonus.
I tent camped just down the road at Lower Onion Creek Campground for $20. It was about a 7 minute drive to Off-Roadeo. Definitely recommend - the stars were awesome.
This is awesome. I was wondering the same thing. Jill and I will be booking the trip to Off-Roadeo for our honeymoon/anniversary (we will be married 2 years but do to cancer recovery and pandemic we haven't been able to have an proper celebration. I wanted to make this trip a time to remember for her.
I stayed in town. It's a lot less expensive than red cliffs and closer to restaurants and arches. You may even enjoy the 20-30 min drive to the off-rodeo event as it's pretty scenic the entire way.
Thank you for all your inputs. I stayed on main street in Moab. I'm glad I did because I was able to explore the little town by foot, discover the shops, etc. The 25 minute drive to the HQ from Moab is gorgeous. I did it twice.
