Devil's Garden Campground, Arches National Park: 62 reviews and 16 photos

 
 

Devil's Garden is the main campground at Arches National Park. It's near the end of the main road. The main thing it has going for it is its location; it's far enough away that you don't get a lot of traffic, and it saves you a great deal of time by allowing you to get up in the morning and see the sights in the northern end of the park without having to make the 20-mile drive from the entrance.

The campground is nestled between some of Arches famous sandstone fins (see photo #2). Skyline Arch is right behind the campground, and you can quickly scramble up to it in 5 minutes or less. The Amphitheater - featuring Ranger Programmes - is right there as well.

The campground has 56 sites. IT IS NOW POSSIBLE TO RESERVE CAMPSITES AT D.G.! This is a recent development, so some older guide books may not mention it. Half of the spaces are reservable, half are first-come, first-served. There are no hookups and I don't remember there being showers either. There is water and bathrooms, though. I believe it was $14/night when I was there in 2005.
