Arches has some big news! From April 3 to October 3, 2022 Arches will implement a temporary, pilot timed entry system to help manage traffic and improve visitor experiences. In this video, Rangers help you plan your next trip and outline what you’ll need to enter the park.

 

When can I reserve my Timed Entry Ticket?

The park will release tickets first-come, first-served on Recreation.gov three (3) months in advance in monthly blocks according to the following schedule:

  • January 3 at 8 am MST: April reservations (April 3–30)

  • February 1 at 8 am MST: May reservations (May 1–31)
  • March 1 at 8 am MST: June reservations (June 1–30)

  • June 1 at 8 am MDT: September reservations (September 1–30)

  • July 1 at 8 am MDT: October reservations (October 1–3)

A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase one day prior to entry at 6 pm MDT through Recreation.gov. These are expected to sell out quickly and we encourage visitors to plan ahead. Tickets will be required from 6am to 5 pm daily April 3 through October 3, 2022.

How do I reserve my Timed Entry Ticket?
