There are two campgrounds: Atlatl Rock Campground is RV-friendly and has full hookups, modern restrooms and hot showers. Arch Rock Campground is more primitive and better for tent camping, although there also is room for RVs and smaller campers. If possible, settle in at one of the campsites numbered 20 or above. These are the most scenic and secluded. Both campsites are on a first-come, first-served basis. There also are group campgrounds that do require reservations.

The park entry fee is $10 per vehicle or $2 per person, whichever is greater. The campsite fee is $20; for RVs with hookups, the fee is $30 per night, which includes the $10 entry fee.
