Camping in Arches National Park

Arches National Park: Landscape Arch

There is only one campground in Arches National Park and it is located at Devils Garden. It makes a great base from which to explore the park, and the surrounding area. Backcountry camping is not allowed in the park. There are many other campgrounds in the Moab area.

The Devils Garden Campground is located at the end of the main park access road, which is paved. It is about 18 miles from the park entrance and is open year-round. Facilities include potable water, picnic tables, grills, as well as both pit-style and flush toilets. There are no showers. Bring your own wood or charcoal for the grills. Some sites will accommodate RV's up to 30 feet in length.
