  • This is a beautiful spot mixed in with the park's Campground system and the arch rock formation is worth the short walk, however, you can really only see it from one angle without climbing some rocks so it's not something all will see. The rest of that sort walk is very interesting though. Unique camp sites that each offer a different experience for the tent - inclined hiker/camper. Wish we were younger to be able to have that experience. Not many spots to stop for the walk but if you find one, go for the walk. BTW, the pic is not of the arch, rather, some of the sites you'll find while at that campgrounds.
  • Easy to find trail to arch rock from white tank campground. There is a 4 car parking space inside that is only good during the daytime. Not too far is the heart shaped rock. Took us a bit of searching but we did it the next day. Beautiful place to explore.
