2018 Labor Day Safari

Saturday, September 1 - Monday, September 3, 2018

If you like to 4-wheel in Moab, a little cooler weather and smaller crowds, then this event offers the things you enjoy. The "Stay Together, Play Together" Labor Day Safari has a little bit of everything and some things the Easter Jeep Safari doesn’t offer because of its size. Trails are limited to 25 vehicles, making them smaller and the entire event is limited to 150 vehicles.

The event is based at the Moab Rim Camppark located at 1900 South Highway 191. This full service campground is at the top of the hill as you leave Moab to the South, and is just a short trip to downtown Moab. It has all of the amenities, including water, showers, picnic tables, trees, grass and no mosquitoes. The entire campground has been reserved for the event, but limited RV and tent spaces are available. But, if you aren't a camping type person you can enjoy the great selection of motels that Moab offers.

Your $150 per vehicle fee includes:

  • Exclusively paid for participants – IF you get your reservation in early enough, a reserved tent or RV space. 12 cabins are available at varying prices (camping, deluxe and cottage), however, these are not included in the $150 entry fee. Reservations for all accommodations are on a "Blue Light Special", first come, first serve basis. To reserve your space select it in the Checkout page after you have registered for the event. Sorry, once the camp ground is full you will need to make your camping reservations in one of the other fine camp parks in the area at your own expense.  Check with the campground about cabin availability, you must be registered for the event to rent a cabin.

    Accommodations will be available to you starting Friday afternoon, August 31st to Monday, September 3rd at 11:00AM. Note: you will need to contact the campground at 1-888-599-MOAB (6622) for any days you plan to stay prior to Friday checkin and after Sunday night.

  • A hot breakfast served on Saturday & Sunday mornings by the Moab Masons, starting at 7:00AM. A delicious dinner served Saturday evening at 7:00PM, sponsored by Ed & Janice Helmick of AYJ Books for the 6th year. (Bring your chairs and own beverages.)

  • A drawing after dinner on Saturday night at the camp park.

  • An Ice Cream Social Sunday night at 6:00pm sponsored by iDeal Off-Road and Hard Rock 4X4.

  • You'll enjoy sharing stories with other jeepers, the family friendly atmosphere, and more than likely make some great new friends.

  • Daily trail runs led by fun and knowledgeable Red Rock 4-Wheelers.

Registration for the event will open on-line on June 5, 2018 at 10:00am MDT (Daylight savings time is used in Utah). Be sure to let us know, a) how many kids and adults in your party and b) what type of camp space you will need - both are on the Checkout page on the website when registering (if camp spaces are FULL, they will not appear on the checkout page). 

Once in Moab:

  • Check in at the campground or your motel.
  • Pick up your registration packet, meal tickets, drawing tickets, etc. at Registration at the Moab Rim CampPark during these times:
    • Friday 3:00 – 7:30PM
    • Saturday 6:30AM – trail departure at 9:00AM & 3:00 – 5:30PM
    • Sunday 6:30AM – trail departure at 9:00AM.

The following trails are scheduled to be run based on registrations and are subject to change. The schedule has been developed with family fun, scenery and short trail days in mind. Each day has a moderate, medium and challenging trail, but not necessarily vehicle damaging trail schedules.

The "First Timers", two day package offers the same Officials on both Saturday & Sunday and you'll be running with the same participants both days. This is a very popular package for 4-wheelers new to Moab. (Please note, you can still register for another trail on Monday, if you register for the "First Timers" package)
