Devils Garden Campground

Devils Garden Campground is the only campground at Arches National Park. You can reserve campsites for nights between March 1 and October 31. During this busy season, the campground is usually full every night. If you're arriving at Arches without a reservation, you'll probably have to look for a campsite outside the park. Between November and February, campsites are first-come, first-served.

 
 

Ranger Programs

Rangers may present evening programs in the campground amphitheater spring through fall. Check at the visitor center for topics and schedules.

 

Where else can I camp?

If Devils Garden Campground is full, you can try the many other campgrounds in the Moab area. It helps to plan ahead. First-come, first-served campgrounds near Moab can fill by mid-morning during the busy season and all holiday weekends. If you're arriving in the evening, you may have to make other arrangements.

There are some campgrounds in the area that take reservations. For a complete list of area campgrounds, visit www.discovermoab.com.
