Plan Your Visit

Welcome to Arches

Arches National Park is a wonderland of red rocks and blue sky. The red rock landscape at Arches might feel timeless, dream-like, or even other-worldly. People have documented over 2,000 natural stone arches within park boundaries. You can see arches, towers, pinnacles, and balanced rocks from the paved park roads. Take a hike, and you can see even more.

To learn more about the park, join us on a ranger program. Check out the visitor center, or download a variety of publications. Take a look at the links below to plan your visit.

Arches is a very popular national park. Traffic congestion between March and October can quickly bring you back to reality. Bring your patience, or plan a visit during slower seasons. Planning ahead can help make your visit as enjoyable as possible.

NOTE: Devils Garden Campground will be closed March 1 through November 30, 2017, due to a major construction project.
