    Its near to the sand dune arch but need to walk bit further to reach here. Just go up on the rocks after the arch to see the stunning views of snow capped mountains with rocks.  more »

    Easy to see most of it from the road. You start on the same path as Sand Dune Arch.

    Only a short hike from the campground, this Arch is one of the touch- and climbable ones. We stayed there for a while, climbing and taking pictures.

Where to stay in Arches National Park

Arches National Park provides camping at the Devils Garden Campground, but most visitors opt to stay in the town of Moab south of the park. You'll find every type of accommodation here, including economy motels, small inns with a rustic Southwest vibe, bed and breakfasts, lodges, and campgrounds. Moab's economy largely revolves around park visitors, so you'll find plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, and various services here. A few publicly operated campgrounds line Route 128 on the park's eastern edge, and a few more accommodations sit on Route 191 off the park's western border.
