Hi, we are new to the Forum and RVing. We are trying to meet some friends from England at Arches National Park on April 13. Any suggestions for campgrounds would be appreciated. Also - what's the weather like? (We pull a small (24 ft) travel trailer.)

I would recommend Dead Horse Point SP. We stayed ther last spring and it is a really nice park, our first time to DHP was in the 70s when there was still a dirt road going out there. Love the area, clost to Island In The Sky/Canyonlands NP and Arches. Google will turn up the contact numbers for all. DHP has hookups.

My favorite campground near Arches is on the road up toward Potash just past the petroglyphs. Lots of shade trees and the sun drops behind the cliffs in the late afternoon. Only facilities are outhouses and picnic tables. There are also a bunch of campgrounds along the river on the opposite side of the highway.

My GPS does not find a town of Potash. Any more info?


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Its not a town, just a Potash mining operation. Cross the river on 191 North of Moab and take HWY-279. It follows the river and turns to dirt at the plant site and continues as Shafer Canyon road below Dead House SP and into Canyon Lands NP.

Spent some time in that area last summer. We stayed at Dead Horse Point SP a few nights and enjoyed very much. Sites aren't very level so bring levelers. Be sure to visit Island in the Sky nearby.

Also stayed way inside Arches at Devils Garden CG a couple of nights. Beautiful setting if you can get by without hookups.

Finally, we stayed in Moab just below Arches at the Canyonlands RV park to do some laundry and provisioning. Somewhat of a tight fit but very convenient to the many services available in Moab. Great grocery store for that part of the world, called City Market is nearby. Plenty of restaurants. Had an excellent lunch at the Moab Brewery.

Wonderful place to take your RV. Great hiking at any fitness level in all of these parks. Enjoy!

Blanding is q long way from Arches.

For FHU's the best is Moab Valley in Moab. Have never stayed at Deadhorse State Park but hear it is great - not sure on hookups.
