Suggestions for outdoor activities in Moab in November.

Wife and I are thinking about heading out to Moab in November. Looking for suggestions where we could set up a nice basecamp and venture out from there. We will be living out of our backpacks. Any suggestions on hikes, basecamps, camp sites, and outfitters is appreciated. Thank you in advance. Be safe.

I know I'm too late, but I'll give you my opinion anyway--for the next time you go. I don't know what you mean by living out of your backpacks. Are you walking there? Or flying/renting car a with just your backpack as luggage?

I've been there in '19 and '20 on road trips and "base-camped" at Up The Creek CG in downtown Moab. It's a small, private tents-only place a block and a half off the main drag. It's a bit pricey at approx. $35 per night but has showers, bathrooms with real toilets, a dishwashing sink and a picnic table at each site. I think they also have a gas grill on wheels for your use. 

A really nice day-hike that's not in any National or State Park (i.e., it's free) is the the Fisher Towers Trail, about 20 miles east of town just off Utah 128. It's a really neat, interesting trail and you might get to see some rock-climbers doing death-defying things up on the Towers.
