Basic Information for Photographing and Visiting Arches

Arches National Park is located in southeastern Utah just a few miles north of Moab.

Arches has a TIMED ENTRY program April through October: Timed entry tickets will be required to enter the park from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and will allow visitors to enter the park during a one-hour specified window of availability. After entering, visitors may stay in the park as long as they wish for the remainder of the day. Reservation holders may exit and re-enter the park on the same day with a correctly validated ticket. Visitors can book reservations first-come, first-served on Recreation.gov. The park will release reservations three months in advance in monthly blocks.

If you don’t get a timed entry ticket, don’t worry. Plan to arrive before 5:30 am or enter after 5:00 pm, which is perfect for sunrise and sunset photography anyway!!
