    If you've been to Arches or Canyonlands and found the crowds unbearable, then go to Needles. It's a smaller version granted, but it's much quieter and far more peaceful  more »

    Located at 1 h 30 drive south of Moab, this part of Canyonlands Park WINS. On the spot so there is no crowd (so nothing to do with Arches). Succession of tangled, Rocky structures colored canyons and so (kinds of Rockies needles) needles. With the children, do the very fun ride "cave spring" offering in just 45 minutes (no rush) a former camp cowboy, rock paintings, scales and other grimperies easy to punctuate the course.

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.
