Arches National Park
Arches National Park’s red rock wonderland is in southeastern Utah’s spectacular canyon country.
The park preserves more than 76,000 acres of high desert landscape with deep canyons, improbable balanced rocks, soaring pinnacles and more than 2,000 natural stone arches.
It is truly one of America’s scenic wonders.
Arches National Park is open 24 hours a day, year-round.
It’s located just 5 miles north of the city of Moab on U.S. Highway 191.
You’ll want to plan on spending at least a few hours in Arches, exploring the paved, 18-mile scenic drive and several of the viewpoints and short trails. If time permits, longer hikes lead to many spectacular rock formations.
You can also camp at The Devils Garden Campground, just 18 miles from the park entrance. This is a beautiful campground where sites are nestled among slickrock outcroppings.
From April 1 through October 31, 2024, visitors entering the park in a vehicle will need two things:
- Timed Entry Ticket
- Park Entrance Fee OR valid Park Pass (includes Annual, Senior, Access, Military, 4th Grade, or Volunteer passes).
Ticketed entry will run from 7 am to 4 pm daily. Those without a ticket may enter the park before 7 am or after 4 pm. The park is open 24/7.
