The backpacking page lists backpacking opportunities in nearby Canyonlands National Park and in Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands.
The page does not say when the plan will be updated. Messages left with rangers at Arches on Thursday and Friday were not returned.
The moratorium comes as Arches grapples with record setting attendance. Last year, 1.4 million people visited the park, whose gates are just outside Moab.
Next year, park staff plan to stop allowing commercial guides to lead tours into the Fiery Furnace — another area of Arches that requires permits but in which the National Park Service does not allow camping.
Arches is a far less popular backcountry hiking destination than other national parks such as Yellowstone or Zion. Arches' published guides warn the backcountry there has no water and the wildlife includes scorpions and rattlesnakes.
