Beautiful park along with island in the sky at Canyonlands
Very nice campground Desert Garden. Sites are paved not a bad spot with great views. Only drawbacks no hookups or dump station.
LOVED our visit to Arches
We spent 2 nights at Devils Garden Campground. The campground is relatively small, which was nice after some of the busier parks we had been to in Utah. I enjoyed that the grounds were located deep into the park. There is also a hiking trail located in the campground which makes for a wonderful evening/sunset hike. We went to the ranger talk one night which was a really cool dark skies discussion. Cons for me would be that very few spaces have shade, which is hard in the hot summer months. Also, there weren't tent-specific areas, so we were camped next to several RV's running their generators, at one point after quiet hours we had to go ask our neighbors to shut it down. The camp host was friendly and often roaming the grounds during the day and the restrooms had flush toilets and running water.
Arches overall is a great park, but you do need to drive between sights, so we stuck with some of the longer hikes which we prefer. I think the timed entry has helped with the traffic in the park because it wasn't nearly as bad as I had read before.
Had to have a certain date-- It works great!
I was planning a series of camp sites in a sequence. I needed a certain date in the middle of the journey to fit it together. I signed up for Campnab and I got notified within a couple of days. I had to be quick so I had all of my info ready to grab the site. It made for a wonderful trip.... Couldn't have done it without Campnab!
Primitive and beautiful
I used Campnab to score a coveted spot at Devils Garden Campground in Arches National Park in October 2022. The campground is small with primitive campsites, but what it lacks in hookups and amenities, it makes up for in views. I stayed in site 12, which is a pull-through site. I was within walking distance of the restrooms, dishwashing/water station, and, most importantly, the Devils Garden trailhead. My visit to this campground was the most relaxing camping experience I've had in years, and I can't wait to go back again one day soon.
Fun campground to explore, but don't go in July! That was an amateur move!
