Comments This is the most beautiful campground we have ever stayed in!

During the busy months, if you want to camp, be at the ranger's station at 7:30 am to register. The campground can fill up by 9 am. On the off season, we were able to get a camp site at 3 pm.

Please do not feed coyotes, deer or any wildlife. Our food is not good for them, and if they beg for food, they could bite someone, and then they may all have to be shot. If they show up in your camp site clap your hands and yell to shoo them away.

Bring your own firewood - taking any resource from the park (even a rock) is illegal.

Generators only permitted during particular hours (around breakfast and dinner time), so RV's can use their power AND there are quite times for all other campers. This works out nicely.

Useful Links Arches National Park
Kaibab bike rentals and tours (minimal biking in Arches but a lot outside of the park)
