Monument Valley Campground

It appears that the Navajo campground at Monument Valley is finally open. I've stopped by a number of times starting in 2011 & was told that it will open "next year" each time; according to the article there are 30 RV sites & 30 wilderness sites.

If anyone visits the area, I'd love a report.

On Edit -

Sorry there are two "Monument Valley" post headings. If a moderator can change mine to Monument Valley Campground, it would probably make more sense...

We'll be out there in Oct, will try and remember to look over Navajo. Thinking of staying at Sand Island State Park instead of Gouldings or Navajo, it's 45 minutes to the east.

We just booked a site for early April at the tribal "View" campground in Monument Valley. Apparently the campground will not open until March 15, but we were able to make an online reservation at Campground | Monument Valley View.

Re: Navajo campground in Monument Valley, "...connecting and touching Mother Earth, dry camping at $42 bucks a night. That's a for sure form of healing and medicine, a real down-to-earth experience. But will they accept my Geezer Pass?

We recommend Gouldings, it is a very nice RV Park with a great view to the east. We also recommend the 3 1/2 hour Native American Guided Tour. It is expensive but the roads inside Monument Valley are awful and the guided tour goes to places they don't let others drive to.

Yeah, I'll pass. I remember the last time we went to 4 Corners they charged us just to see the USGS Marker -- that they didn't fund but the taxpayers did. I understand its on Navajo land but it smacked of money grubbing to me. YMMV.

I noticed that your last blog entry was in July, 2013. Are you not blogging anymore?
