6 Parks near Mexican Hat, Utah
May 2014 - $29.00
The manager was friendly and helpful at first but turned sullen later over a safety issue. He told us about Muley point which turned out to be a panoramic vista of Monument Valley and the San Juan river. He also told us about other sites (Valley of the Gods). restaurants (mostly cafe types) and groceries some 24 miles away. The park is definitely bare bones; it is all gravel with bush-type trees. It is bounded by a single wide trailer on one side, a run down trailer court in the back, and a dirt parking lot for river rafters on the other side. If you walk toward the river you may find some small oil wells and some roaming neighborhood dogs. I think it is overpriced for what you get. The manager has a dingo type dog that he lets loose in the morning and it charged at me both mornings we were there growling and snarling! The manager made excuses, minimized the incident, never apologized, and never leashed it! - mountainmanmike

Not much more than a stopping off point for Monument Valley and Goosenecks. Good antenna TV reception. Stayed one night and that was enough to do the Valley visit and State Park, then moved on. First place on the north side of town next to a small church - park is out back of an old convenience store. - SailorGolf

We thought this was a really weird place. Mexican Hat is a community of approximately 85 people. The fellow running the park seemed a bit off and strange. He told us right off jump that he made no money off the park, only off the beer he sold tons of to the locals. Later, we noticed several quite young teen-aged girls getting off the school bus and trekking upstairs to the living quarters above the store/office and leaving after about an hour (??) We only stayed one night here--we were too creeper out. Just a place to stop and catch some sleep if you really have to. - Rizzles LaRue

This is a very remote park. It is all about the views here. No power, water, or amenities (there is a bathroom).
There are not very many campsites, so they are roomy, and there are times when you may have most of the park to yourself.
You can choose to park/camp right on the edge of the canyon.
This is a true treasure - and if you are a sucker for canyon views, this is a great place to spend a few days just taking them in. Also - there are some other interesting geological features nearby. - AngelaS

Sadly, Goosenecks is no longer free. It is now $2 entry fee and $10 to camp. The "park" is basically a scenic overlook. There are vault toilets. Closer in sites have fire rings and picnic tables. You can follow the road out further on the point and access other sites with no amenities but the road has big rocks and is rough. I gave 7 stars for the amazing view. I camped 10' from the edge on a full moon night and it was magical. However, I think $10 is a bit much as I've stayed at BLM CGs with similar amenities, and more things to do like hiking etc., and they were free. Like I said, this is a scenic overlook, there's nothing to do but look over the edge and go Wow! I guess the fee sure has thinned the herd, though, as there were only 2 other RVs. Oh, surprisingly good AT&T 3G data here. That was unexpected. - Gail K

Rated for the views and the ambiance of a great boondocking location. Very quiet, remote. Parking 20 yards from the rim of the canyon afforded a great "from porch" view of sunsets. Bathroom cleanliness was OK; a typical park outhouse kind of toilet. Did have a Navajo teenager trying to sell handmade jewelry in the park several hours a day. Try to pick a visit period when not too windy. That could un-nerve some. A drive in your toad on the Moki-Dugway drive up to the mesa top to the North is well worth the trip but a little scary. Not for motorized campers or coaches. - OSUCowboy

This dry campground is located within the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. We choice this campground over others near the area because of this location. We arrived later in the day, were able to unhook, and then drive the loop through the Valley at our leisure. The sunset view from our RV was stunning. What a beautiful setting. The hotel is adjacent but far enough away so you don't get traffic through the campground. We had the breakfast buffet up at the hotel and shopped at the gift shop. I thought the jewelry selection offered here was one of the best I'd seen. - AspenTrailmama

We chose this campground based on previous reviews. Did not work out like prior reviewers. Our view was great until the group tent campers moved in and parked directly in front of us. And the one end of the campground is like a freeway, with a gravel road, and lots of dust from all the traffic driving by to check out the views. The end with minimal dust is located behind all the little cabins. On another note, we went to check out the guided trips thru the park and was told that the cost for a 2 1/2 hour trip was $130 per person. We said," OK, thanks" and walked away. The guide said, "wait............if that is too much money (which it was in our minds) we can drop the price for you". We kept walking, as it felt like we were being taken advantage of. This is a beautiful part of the world, and we are hoping that the sunsets and sun rises will be worth it, and drive thru the park on our own. - Scotter

For your $41.95 you do not get any hook up, no water, no electricity - which is outrageous. The campground is on top of a hill, so if it's blowing, it is very unpleasant. On the plus side you have a great view of the Mittens. The fee to come into Monument Valley is $20 per car, so it's better to stay in the park if you want to do multiple trips to see the sights. The free wifi is really only available in the office. The restrooms are excellent. There is a family toilet with change table, a single women, a single mens. Then mens and women combined multiple showers and toilets. Then a disabled bathroom with toilet, shower and basin in a large room. The water is hot and strong. There are bins for your rubbish. A dump station is at the end of the campground. - Pilbara

Simi-level, back-in dirt site with electric and water. No sewer. Friendly staff. Access to restrooms and showers. Staff provides Monument Valley Tours. Quiet. Added bonus: wild mule roams free. - starrview

This campground is centrally located in the heart of Monument Valley.
Our site was large and level. Easy to maneuver for big rigs. We had a back in site but actually preferred it for the privacy with our dogs. Unfortunately there is no dog run.
Tours of the area are available from the campground. We took one and thoroughly enjoyed it! - Marley B Jones

A location just a few miles from the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is the best feature of this park. The section we were in is just a gravel parking lot-none too level-with four back-in sites spaced very close together. Fortunately they were plenty long for our 37' MH and toad. Electric, water, and sewer hookups were conveniently placed, and the WiFi signal was pretty strong and generally gave decent throughput. We didn't use the bathrooms. The laundry was convenient and clean. The price was just a bit higher than we like, but we sure did appreciate having the power to run our A/C! - DaveInOhio

We loved the fantastic views provided by majestic red sandstone bluffs around the campground. Close by is Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, Mystery Valley, to name a few. Don't forget, you are in the middle of a dry hot dusty red desert, so plan accordingly. The campground has a clean cool indoor swimming pool that was popular with everyone. The pull through sites are tight but manageable. Our sited supported full hookups, picnic table, grill, and an amazing view. The park wifi worked most of the time. Verizon 3G cell worked most of the time. Mary Ann & I signed up for the all day tour offered by the Campground. Our Navajo Guide "Carol" shared many things about her people, like Indian history, culture, tradition and some folklore. Carol also shared the story of her family on the reservation. A story filled with love, children, joy, hardship and often times tragedy. If there is a reason we travel around in a RV, this is it. - MIL-SAT

Excellent for what it is: no sewer, no electric, carry your water from a spigot. No highway noise, some large Cottonwoods, plenty of ground cover (sagebrush). Lots of coyote poop, so keep your pets safe. A popular campground; it typically fills up on Thursday in the spring. Site 9 is the nicest if you can get it. No grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. nearby; you have to go to Cortez, Colorado (1.5 hours away) for supplies. - Old Mountain Man

Beautiful spot. Cottonwoods were just leafing out so we had shade and privacy. Sites are large and mostly level. Loop road could use some work but it is not really a problem. A bit of noise from the road but the traffic diminished to almost nothing during the night. Lots of geological features to explore nearby, including Comb Ridge which is quite impressive. - oldmac

Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but with water spigots scattered throughout campground. Sites are nicely spaced and with good foliage in between. Pit toilets were clean. Interesting petroglyphs can be seen on a nearby rock wall. - HercMaster
