We camped right in Arches and were able to hike around a lot, exploring many arches, fins and other interesting sandstone features. Arches was also pretty crowded compared to Canyonlands and we had to get a little creative to avoid the buses full of Japanese tourists. But we found amazing things and did hikes where we saw fewer than five people in several hours. You can see much of Arches in a day, since many of the most famous features are short hikes from the park road, but to really get into this place, we felt like a week wasn't enough, so we have already booked ourselves back there for a week in October!
