Devils Garden Campground - Arches National Park Camping
Camping is by far the easiest and best way to explore Arches National Park!
You simply start/end your day in the park without having to drive well over a half-hour drive from Moab plus waiting in the ridiculously long line just to get through the entrance station.
Another great benefit is that campers are not required to have a Timed Entry Reservation however you must show your campground reservation for entry into the park. Entrance fees still apply.
Perhaps the biggest benefit to camping in Arches National Park is that you are also close to several hiking trails including Devils Garden Trail and Broken Arch loop. This means that you can leave your vehicle at your campsite and not have to fight for one of the few precious parking spots.
There is an amphitheater where you can take in an evening Ranger Program or just hang out at your site with a campfire or stare out into the sky and enjoy all the stars.
