Arches National Park announces new reservation system
Arches National Park announced they will be switching to a "timed entry" online reservation system for park visitors commencing on April 3 and running through Oct. 3. Park visitors must place a first-come-first-serve reservation and will receive a timed entry ticket. Tickets will allow guests to enter the park during a one-hour window after which they may remain in the park until the nightly closure.
Reservation blocks will open up three months in advance. Arches National Park officials say this temporary system is an effort to spread out park visitation throughout the day to hopefully reduce congestion and create a better experience for park visitors.
