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.

  • Because of all of the road work being done in Arches a section at a time, tickets for Fiery Furnace could not be obtained on-line ahead of time, but rather one had to just show up at the Visitor's Cen...  more »
  • Fiery Furnace is by my knowledge a viewpoint with a documented sign. Nice views over the surroundings.  more »
  • We visited here on a ranger led walk after seeing recommendations and I'm so glad we did. It was a very hot day but the walk is mostly in between the fins so was in the shade for the most part. The ra...  more »

  • Fantastic adventure! My wife and I took four of our children, ages 7,10,13 and 17, and everyone had a great time. We upgraded to the AllTrails Pro app ($30/yr) and used the default map on my iPhone 7 Plus and it worked like a charm, even in Airplane Mode. We followed the standard trails to see Surprise and Skull Arch, plus several exploratory detours of our own that were simply delightful. Total trip time for our little band was 3.75 hours. Take plenty of water and snacks. Do NOT enter without a guide or a really good app.
  • I am a huge fan of adventure. Going somewhere that is not the standard path. The Fiery Furnace is in a way that opportunity. If you're coming to the area, plan ahead and get in there. Things you should know: You have to get a permit to enter the furnace. You have an option of going alone, though this is unadvised for most. Or to go with a Park Ranger. You MUST reserve your place with a Ranger early as they only do so many each day. It can be very dangerous to go alone as you will have no reception and no GPS inside. Come prepared: Make sure you have a good amount of water (especially in the summer months), proper attire, flash light, and proper footwear. There is not a manicured path. You'll be having to get creative in some areas to get around. Go early! If you're starting in late you might find you lose the light before you get out. That said, it is well worth it. Get in and have a good time. Just plan ahead and be safe.
  • This is by far the best part of Arches. A maze with no real established trail. We explored for 5 hours and didn't see another person the entire time!
  • Take the guided tour with a ranger. Very easy to get lost in here if you don't know where you're going.
  • Named for the warm glow seen on the rocks late afternoon. Not the best place but definitely worth to see.
