Practical information for camping at Arches National Park

First and foremost, check out our page (coming soon) about things to do and places to stay at Arches National Park. Aside from that, here are a few more important things to know when staying overnight at Arches:

  • There's only one campground inside of Arches National Park boundaries, but lots of choices outside of the park toward Canyonlands National Park and near the town of Moab.

  • There is no water in the campground, but you can fill up a water jug nearby at the Landscape Arch trailhead and at the visitor center. Make sure you have at least 4 liters of water per person per day.

  • The entrance to Arches National Park is only a few miles from the town of Moab, which has all the amenities you can think of, such as gas, groceries, hotels, and restaurants.

  • The weather always surprises. During most of the year, excluding summer, prepare for a much colder night than you think. Being a true desert environment, day and nighttime temperatures vary dramatically. Of course, June, July, and August could get unbearably hot - you might want to consider setting up camp by the Colorado River outside of the park.

  • Arches National Park is far from international airports! It's 4 hours from Salt Lake City and nearly 6 hours from Denver. But the most convenient international airport to Arches National Park is Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. Though it takes about 7 hours to drive directly to the park entrance, most people make a multi-day road trip out of it and stop at Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef National Parks before reaching Arches.
