Cell Phone Service

Red rock country is easy on the eyes but hard on mobile phones. Cellular service is available in most towns and along major highways, but visitors will find many areas without coverage throughout the region.

Coverage at Arches is spotty. Service varies between carriers. As a rule of thumb, signals are strongest wherever the La Sal Mountains are visible. Areas with reliable cell phone coverage for most carriers include:

  • Arches Visitor Center
  • Balanced Rock
  • Panorama Point
  • Delicate Arch (at end of trail only)
  • Salt Valley Overlook
  • Fiery Furnace Viewpoint
Sandstone walls effectively disrupt cellular service in these areas:
  • Park Avenue / Courthouse Wash
  • The Windows
  • Delicate Arch Viewpoint
  • Fiery Furnace
  • Devils Garden
This summary is not a guarantee of service. Do not rely on cellular service in Arches. Texting is often a more effective means of communication in areas with limited service.

Satellite Phones

Satellite phones are a fairly reliable means of communication at Arches. Visitors should expect dropped calls and periodic lack of service when satellites are not in a position to transmit. No radio frequencies are monitored at Arches.
