Camping at Arches National Park, Utah

We are excited to be in Arches National Park for two reasons:
  1. The absolute beauty of the arches and other rock formations.

  2. Our friends Linda & Howard of RV-Dreams are camphosting here, and we were looking forward to seeing them again.

Arches National Park is located in southeastern Utah, just 5 miles north of Moab (in and of itself a tourist destination). There are numerous arches here, some accessible by car, others by a hike ~ we look forward to seeing as many as possible in the few days we’ll be here.

Devil’s Garden is the campground, and be prepared for the 18 mile drive form the park entrance to the campground. There are 52 sites ~ 24 available on a first-come/first-served basis (plan on being here by 7am if you want a site – yes, we’re serious), and the remaining sites are reservable via ReserveAmerica. There are no hook-ups at any site, yet drinking water and restrooms are located throughout the campground. There are a number of sites to accommodate big rigs and all the sites are beautiful, yet in our opinion, site 22 is the best!

As we said, we were also looking forward to seeing Howard & Linda of RV-Dreams again and were pleasantly surprised to also meet up with Rod & Deb of Keeping up with the Kendalls. They are here for a couple days as well to see Howard & Linda, so suddenly we had a party with lots of food, lots of fun, and lots of fun conversation.

Oh, photos of Capitol Reef National Park have been posted! Enjoy!!

I guess I can comment now since you really have left Arches. LOL Or did you hijack somebody else's coordinates?? We had so much fun with you guys. Hopefully we'll meet up again soon.
