Arches National Park: A Journey Through Time

One of my all-time favorite camping experiences was at Arches National Park, near Moab. Imagine waking up to the sight of over 2,000 natural stone arches, each more stunning than the last. The Devils Garden Campground, nestled among these ancient sandstone formations, is a gem. I’ve spent evenings there stargazing under some of the clearest skies ever. Don’t miss hiking to Delicate Arch at sunset—it’s a memory that will last a lifetime. Kristina Batal from Inhabit Park City recently spent a weekend in Moab – bringing her dog too! She opted for the Corona Arch hike to bring her pup along for the ride.

Zion National Park: Nature’s Cathedral

Zion National Park feels like nature’s cathedral with its towering sandstone cliffs and lush valleys. Camping at South Campground or Watchman Campground brings you close to the heart of the park. I remember my first hike up Angels Landing—challenging but incredibly rewarding with panoramic views that left me breathless. The sound of the Virgin River at night is the perfect lullaby, making Zion one of my top picks for a camping retreat.

Bryce Canyon National Park: Hoodoo Magic

Bryce Canyon holds a special place in my heart. The unique hoodoos—those tall, thin spires of rock—create a landscape that feels almost magical. Camping at North Campground or Sunset Campground lets you be right at the doorstep of this wonderland. Early morning walks to Sunrise Point offer views that are nothing short of spectacular. The tranquility and beauty of Bryce Canyon are something everyone should experience at least once.

Capitol Reef National Park: A Slice of History

Capitol Reef is where history and nature meet. Camping at the Fruita Campground, surrounded by historic orchards and red rock cliffs, was like stepping back in time. The fresh fruit picking and the peaceful environment made my stay unforgettable. Exploring the park’s trails and the Gifford Homestead added a unique historical dimension to the natural beauty.
