It'll probably depend on the weather. By my standards, I've never seen it that bad where you couldn't get a parking spot at any TH. You should be O.K., but for that ranger led hike to the Fiery Furnace, you need to get reservations. Ditto for any lodging and camping, maybe, to be sure.

Ideally, we would like to see both Arches and Canyonlands. I am looking for suggestions on good destinations within a day's hiking distance. Long hikes - 10-15 miles round trip or so - are OK. Also, any advice on a good, strategically-located spot to set up base camp would be really appreciated. I know that Willow Flat Campground in the Island in the Sky area of Canyonlands is one option, but perhaps there are better ones someone can recommend?
The NPS official trails are mostly pretty short, and you can do all of them in the Island district within a half day or so
