There is one campground in the park at the end of the paved road in the Devils Garden section. It's open year round and has 52 individual sites with flush toilets and water. There are 2 group sites available for 11 people or more. Reservations must be made 4 days in advance.
The closest complete lodging facilities are in Moab located 5 miles south on Route 191. There's a wide variety of motels to chose from, most are 1 to 3 stars and prices vary according to season. Luxury type hotels don't exist here. There are a couple lodges along the river on the scenic drives some 10-20 miles from Moab.
We stayed at the Best Western Canyonlands Motel in the center of town. The visitors center is across the street. Another Best Western was just a block away. Location in town doesn't matter too much since the town is pretty small.
When we go somewhere, I typically don't like to stay in hotel chains because I prefer to stay in places that are unique to each individual place we visit. However, after some research I chose the Holiday Inn Express in Moab because of its location, price, and amenities. It was a very pleasant stay.
Very close to Arches National Park
The room here was very nice. There was a separate coach and small living area along with the 2 double beds. One of the most comfortable rooms on our entire trip.
Hotel has a nice size outdoor pool with an outdoor spa.
Stayed for a night at this motel.
Located along Highway 70 at Green River, Utah before starting off at Arches National Park the next day.
Basic motel room. A warm bed is more than enough this arid area in the middle of nowhere.
We stayed in the Big Horn Lodge for 2 nights while visiting Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. It's right in the heart of the adventure town of Moab, which is just 5 minutes away from Arches entrance. It was nice enough, and the staff was quite friendly, but it didn't blow me away. The decor was done in a rustic style, but basically it's still just a motel room.
There is a restaurant next door where you can pick up coffee to go.
See my Moab pages for the 2 accommodations we've rented in the Moab/Arches/Canyonlands area
Camping in Arch's National Park is a unique experience that you will not forget. Located right next to Devils Garden and right in the middle of dozens of beautiful red rock formation, the campgrounds of Arch's are about as picturesque as it gets. The campgrounds are fully maintained with various fully equipped bathrooms. There are also dumpsters by the bathroom facilities. The campsites have fire pits with a grill and picnic tables. Getting a campground can be rather difficult, there are 24 sites available on a first come, first serve basis, but those go quickly. There are 28 sites that can be reserved in advance online. The best way to reserve these sites is to do it at least 3 weeks in advance. Google, "Arches National Park Campsite Reservations" and it will pull a direct link to reserve the sites. The cost for walk up or for reservations is $15. You can bring your own wood or purchase wood from the campground host on site.
There is no lodging available inside the park, but there are a variety of accommodations available in nearby towns, especially Moab. I stayed one night at an average motel called the Bowen Motel in Moab.
We stayed at the Days Inn, Moab for 3 nights. The room was clean and comfortable, the hotel had good parking facilities and it is centrally located in Moab. That's what the hotel has going for it. The breakfast was a help yourself toast and doughnuts affair. I drank coffee because the hot water was never hot enough to extract the flavour out of a tea bag. The breakfast room was always crowded, but I think we were supposed to take the breakfast back to the bedroom. We were there for the rest of Moab and Arches National Park.
I love "Sleep Inn" in general and Moab's one is one of the best: great room, great shower (this is the thing I love in this chain of motel: there isn't the unigienical vasca da bagno), great breakfast and here even a great regenerating pool.
the pool after walking in the desert is the best thing in the world.
Almost all stayingpossibilities for Arches N.P. are in and around Moab. There are many hotels and motels, but Arches N.P. is a popular destination, so make reservations way in advance of your visit. In the park itself there is a camperground with limited places Here to, be quick in advance to be sure.
This must be a fairly new hotel, as everything was in great shape. The location is ideal, just on the north end of Moab, literally minutes away from the park. The room was clean and spacious with refrigerator and microwave in the room. Very clean, very convienent, pretty reasonably priced for the busy weekend we were in town. Check-in was quick, and the continental breakfast had a fairly good selection.
Moab is located 32 miles south of I-70 on Hwy 191 near Arches and Canyonlands national parks. It is the closest town that you will find numerous dining and lodging options, plenty of outfitters eager to supply equipment, guides and information, and all other services a traveler might normally need. (Note: there is no accomodation facility inside Arches National Park)
I realy enjoyed staying at the days in. We arrived early after a long day of driving and the made special arrangements for us to check in so we could grab a quick nap before we left for arches. The staff were very friendly and seemed to like to chat. the rooms. my favorite part was the 10 person hot tub which was very very handy after an entire day of hiking and being on our feet
