Bryce Canyon National Park
Get lost in the rocks. The unique beauty of Bryce Canyon has been shaped by wind, water and time creating slot canyons, window fins and hoodoos. There’s 2 campgrounds within the park, North Campground and Sunset Campground. See details and book through the @nationalparkservice
Arches National Park
Featuring over 2,000 arches it’s a red rock wonderland. Devil’s Garden is the one campground within the park and is dry camping only and isn’t easy for beginner campers. There are free camping options close by such as Willow Springs Trail, but heads up this area and the park itself get very busy. Arches may be best as a day adventure!

One of the lesser known Utah National Parks, but just as unique. Here there’s a Waterpocket Fold, which is a wrinkle on earth, almost 100 miles long! The park has 1 developed campground, 2 primitive campgrounds, and vast backcountry options. Capitol Reef is also known to have some of the most stunning night skies of all western national parks.
Canyonlands ‑ The Needles
