Debate simmers on over possible reservation system at Arches NP

As the National Park Service (NPS) moves forward with a plan to mitigate traffic congestion at Arches National Park, Grand County officials and stakeholders remain in disagreement over the park service’s recommendation to implement an advance reservation system for entrance into the park.

With a steady increase in visitation in the past 11 years — 1.6 million visitors in 2016 alone — the NPS wants to make changes at Arches National Park to reduce wait times for people entering the park by spreading vehicle entries out over more hours of the day or months of the year; reduce overflow parking and roadside walking; and reduce congestion at the park’s entrance at U.S. Highway 191.
