About Red Cliffs Lodge

A True Western Lodge with Modern Amenities

Nestled on the banks of the Colorado River, surrounded by magnificent 2,000-foot cliffs, the Red Cliffs Lodge—Moab’s National Park Experience—is truly a hidden treasure of the west. Inside, the lodge features dramatic 20-foot ceilings, natural wood-paneled walls, rustic log furniture, and hand-finished Mexican saltillo tile floors. Visiting Red Cliffs Lodge feels like a step back in time, but guests soon find comfort and amenities throughout.

All guest rooms are alongside water. Choose a king guestroom and you’ll enjoy an eastern view of the Colorado River with your own private deck and a cozy kitchenette. Our queen guestrooms face west, situated along the soothing Castle Creek, and also feature private patios and kitchenettes.

Special occasions deserve a special suite. Our executive suite overlooks the famous White’s Rapid of the Colorado River. Top off your experience with an award-winning wine from our very own Castle Creek Winery.

More Red Cliffs Lodge features

Red Cliffs Lodge also features a 4,000 square foot, fully equipped conference room, the Wild Horse Bar, and the Cowboy Grill—a terraced dining room featuring traditional favorites such as BBQ chicken breast and wild Alaskan keta salmon. Be sure to leave room for dessert! Our selection of homemade treats is the perfect way to end a delightful meal.

Don’t miss the Moab Film and Western Heritage Museum, which displays the story behind Hollywood’s romance with the Moab region, and features memorabilia and fascinating, little-known facts about films and television shows shot here.

Outside, cool off in the pool, relax in the hot tub, or enjoy a game of tennis, volleyball, and even horseshoes—all while savoring the spectacular views.

What can you expect when you visit Red Cliffs Lodge? Amazing views—inside and out—fabulous service, and a treasure trove of memories to take home!

Red Cliffs Lodge views

Red Cliffs Lodge occupies a premiere plot of real estate—high on the banks of the Colorado River surrounded by 2,000-foot, sheer, red rock cliffs.

Enjoy the view from one of the many decks and porches wrapping the main lodge and conference center. Our restaurant deck and patio face upriver to the east and provide an undisturbed view of Fisher Towers (ten miles away) and the river itself, 100 feet below.

Red Cliffs Lodge

With 20-foot ceilings and exposed wood beams, the lodge is an impressive landmark indeed! We’ve taken care to preserve the authentic western architecture with natural wood paneling, Mexican saltillo tile floors, handcrafted log furniture, and plenty of local movie and western-ranching memorabilia.

If you forgot to pack something, don’t worry. Our small general store is stocked with plenty of travel-related supplies and gifts.
