Cell Phone Service
Red rock country is easy on the eyes but hard on mobile phones. Cellular service is available in most towns and along major highways, but visitors will find many areas without coverage throughout the region.
Coverage at Arches is spotty. Service varies between carriers; currently, Verizon seems to offer the widest coverage in the area. As a rule of thumb, signals are strongest wherever the La Sal Mountains are visible.

For your own safety, please remember that:
Satellite phones are a fairly reliable means of communication at Arches. Visitors should expect dropped calls and periodic lack of service when satellites are not in a position to transmit.
