A lot of places claim to be "natural arches", but this place is the genuine article! Deceptively large and impressive; but don't give in to the temptation to go off trail and try to climb this thing (which is forbidden, anyway!)

This Arch is a wonder to behold. You can see it from the road but to get the full effect you need to stop and park and walk in about 300 yards. It is really gorgeous.

Great arch. Largest natural arch in New Mexico I understand. Easy walk to base of arch. Wheelchair accessible.

The path is a very easy, perhaps 150 yard walk from the parking lot, about 1/3 of which is actually paved. The rest is a good packed trail with a slight rise in elevation. A hat and sunscreen are both good ideas for this site,...More

Not sure how large your large rv is. The parking was open and accessible and could accommodate an 7 person rental type rv. It was also not very busy so you may just be able to park on the side.
