Be sure to visit Canyonlands NP too. It's in the same area.

Probably want to drop your TT at an RV park in or around Moab before you go into the park itself. What direction are you coming in from, North or South?
A real nice drive is Hwy 128 which follows the Colorado River upstream for quite a ways. Lots of beautiful vistas. Again best done without towing a TT.

Just my .02

Helpfull hints

Take a good camera and lots of time if you have it. We made several trips cause we liked it so much....... if you get a chance, see Zion too.
Ours was off the back of a motorcycle, it made it extra good

Dead Horse Point State Park is between Arches & Canyonlands and is well worth a visit to see the sunset from the point. There is a campground there with electricity but no water hookups.

Moab has a great brewery which also has good food!

128 is a GORGEOUS drive and if you're coming from CO, would be a shorter route.

Are you planning on seeing some of Utah's other NPs?

Take some time and actually get off-road or off pavement at least. Hike or Bring a bike or Bring/Rent a Jeep/ATV/SxS/raft/kayak/etc. Take a guided tour if your not comfortable going it alone.

X3 on RT128!!

be sure to have a FULL TANK as you drive in.. there aren't many gas stations until you get to the little tiny town there.
