The 13-site campground is open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis. More...

Interpretive Programs

The Natural Bridges interpretive staff offers a variety of ranger-led activities spring through fall. Evening programs are presented in the campground amphitheater May through October (topics vary). Guided walks, overlook talks (along the loop drive) and patio talks (at the visitor center) are given throughout the week spring through fall. Times and topics vary. Please contact the park or check bulletin boards for current schedules.

Astronomy programs are presented in the front commons area at Natural Bridges Visitor Center on Wednesday and Thursday nights through October. All programs start at dusk. Contact the park for more information.
