Picnic Areas

There are several spots for picnicking in the park. All these areas have picnic tables and toilets nearby. Some also have fire grates:

  • Arches Visitor Center
  • Across the road from Balanced Rock
  • Panorama Point
  • Delicate Arch Viewpoint
  • Devils Garden


Arches National Park has one campground at Devils Garden. The campground is full most nights between March and October, when sites are reserved in advance. Between November and February, sites are first-come, first-served.



You may backpack in the park, but only in a few designated sites. You should be prepared for difficult route finding and hiking through dense brush and possible quicksand. You must get a permit at the visitor center.
