  • If you're on the north side, it is best to arrive in the morning to shoot with the Sun on the left, rather than right in the Chamber this afternoon.

Where to stay in Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park offers camping in two first-come, first-served campgrounds and various primitive sites throughout the park. Most park visitors opt to stay in the nearby town of Moab, which offers plenty of places to rest in the form of national chain motels, rustic inns with a Southwestern vibe, and lodges. A few bed and breakfasts sit north and south of town on the way to the park, and a couple of ranches and lodges lie a bit farther from town, offering more luxurious digs in the majestic setting of southern Utah's high desert.
