1 RV Park near Shonto, Arizona
Jun 2017 - $1.00
It is actually free to camp here, with a seven day limit. There are two campgrounds, Canyon View and Sunset. Sunset, with 31 small sites, can be reached by all paved roads and is the closest to the Visitor Center. It has flush toilets and drinking water, but not for filling RV tanks. Also, there is no dump station, so plan on arriving with full tanks and leaving with waste. Canyon View requires driving on some good gravel road and is a little further away from the Visitor Center. There are some close branches, so if this is your campground of choice, it would probably be a good idea to scout it first via car/truck. It has pit toilets and no water but the sites are much better separated than Sunset and the views are fantastic at some of the sites. We chose Canyon View and had no difficulty with our 28 foot motorhome except for using care with the tree branches. The Park website indicates that 28 foot length is the maximum, but we saw several longer rigs. We loved our space and ended up staying longer than we had originally planned. We had reasonable Verizon service, voice and data. We were able to get DirecTV without a problem. We would definitely camp there again. - TheJim

Camping is free but RV park reviews won't accept a zero.
This is one of our favorite places. RV limit is listed at 27'. Be aware that you will have a couple of hundred yards of narrow, rough road, but the beautiful views as well as the peacefulness make it worth it. A real gem! - MaryinPrescott

Wonderful campground for tent campers! Well kept sites and it was only half-full. Very quiet. And no big rvs with noisy generators. There was an 18 wheeler making a delivery to the visitor center who evidently got lost and became stuck on the loop road at 6:30 in the morning. It took him an hour to painfully find his way out. Other than that it was great, and the guided hike into Betatakin Ruins was spectacular. We took the short and steep route down an endless staircase to the canyon bottom. It was a fairy land! Our guide was very knowledgeable regarding native plants and the history of the area. Would love to visit in Winter! Not to be missed if you are a lover of canyon country. - Canyon Wren
