I liked all the different rock formations especially Balancing Rock and the Windows section of the park. It is a great place for a day out, plenty to see and good walks..

The park and the entire area is a geological marvel... it would be the topping on the cake after visiting Monument Valley Tribal Park. The only downside can be the crowds... but, would highly recommend as a park to visit.

The Arches is a very beautiful park. I could have spent a week hiking & exploring it. I will be back again. There were arches that were easily accessible and some that involved more strenuous hikes. I would highly recommend visiting this park.

Rangers recommend that you hike early or late to avoid the heat of the afternoon... well be sure to take the "late" when there is a beautiful, full, super moon shining. Arches is just amazing anyway but hiking out from Delicate Arch as the full moon rises is breathtaking. Balance Rock, Landscape Arch, Double Arch are all worth the effort... More

A really great park, good value at just $10 per car. And small enough that a day to explore it is perfect. We saw lots of children having fun exploring the arches too so it is good for families. A good variety of walks to choose from so you can pick the distance you want. If planning in visiting monument... More

As all National Parks, once you pay the admission price (I always wondered why they need this, on top of all the taxes we all dully pay), you get a map and the current issue of the Park Newsletter. All roads and distances are clearly marked and you have any number of photographic opportunities. Especially if you remember, as always,... More

Wish we had more time, but you can drive thru and see most of the park in half a day. Really beautiful scenery and short hikes to see some of the arches.

This is a smaller and more accessible park than the neighbouring Canyonlands NP. Easy to get round all the sections although the weather was changeable on the day we went, the road to Wolff Ranch and the Delicate Arch viewpoint was initially closed due to flooding. Visited all the other sections (Balanced Rock, Petrified Dunes, Turret Arch, North and South... More

Loved everything about Arches National Park. $10.00 entry absolutely worth the money. Very well organised and easy to access and drive if you have problems with walking. Numerous viewing points to enjoy the stunning scenery. These are well placed, easy to access and park. This is a must on our list. Would definitely do this again.

When you see pictures of the arches in this national park, you have to admit, you're impressed; but seeing them up close and through your own eyes, is just ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING. The complexity and grandeur of these massive arches renders you speechless. We spent 2 days here, and it wasn't nearly enough time. We seriously recommend doing a sunrise at... More
