Arch is viewable from the road, but do go and take the time to get a little closer. Easily accessible from a short walk from the parking area. Beautiful cactus and Pinion trees along the path.

This is an impressive natural Arch. It's easy access from the highway, and only a short hike from the parking spot. Aside from the arch itself there isn't much else along the short trail from the parking lot to the arch.

This was on our list of places to see and so glad it was. If using your GPS it will direct you right there but as others said, watch for the sign or you might pass it up. The arch can be seen from the...More

To visit La Ventana Arch you have to drive a number of miles down HWY 114. Although marked, it is quite easy to bypass as the marker for the site is fairly close to the arch. When I visited, it was obvious that park personnel...More

This is a very nice natural arch. Right along main road through the park - you can see it as you drive by. There is a large parking area (with large spots for RV's too). They list a picnic area on the map, but we...More

Not sure how large your large rv is. The parking was open and accessible and could accommodate an 7 person rental type rv. It was also not very busy so you may just be able to park on the side.
