This is an impressive natural Arch. It's easy access from the highway, and only a short hike from the parking spot. Aside from the arch itself there isn't much else along the short trail from the parking lot to the arch.

This was on our list of places to see and so glad it was. If using your GPS it will direct you right there but as others said, watch for the sign or you might pass it up. The arch can be seen from the...More

To visit La Ventana Arch you have to drive a number of miles down HWY 114. Although marked, it is quite easy to bypass as the marker for the site is fairly close to the arch. When I visited, it was obvious that park personnel...More

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!)

Having been to the parks in Utah that have many stone arches, this is a good one. For you Photogers out there, the best time appears to be after lunch. You're shooting facing east so let the sun come around behind you to light up...More

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.

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.
