Arch Canyon overlook has to be one of the best primitive campsites around. The lofty overlook is perched high above Arch Canyon and provides big views into Arch Canyon and the surrounding area. A few ruins tucked under the viewpoint are the icing on the cake.
Take highway 95 to milepost 101.8, which is 101.8 miles south east from Hanksville, or about 23 miles west of Blanding.
From the parking spot, a metal staircase allows easy access out to the point and its lofty views.
Walking either up or down canyon along the rim for a couple of minutes, then looking back at the point, shows several ruins well hidden right under the point. There appears to be no easy, non-technical way to reach them from above.
