We stayed at the campground two nights. Despite freezing temperatures, the stay was enjoyable. Helpful friendly staff, nice campsites. I found it odd that they sell firewood at the campground store but there's no fire rings. Beautiful scenery. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Take one of the tours of Monument Valley that Goulding's has to offer. A lot of interesting things to see including petroglyphs, Navajo hogans and all kinds of rock formations. They have movie programs that include John Wayne movies filmed in Monument Valley.

For visiting Monument Valley, it's the best option. We were there for two nights. Although we got off to a poor start, we ended up being pleased over all. When we first arrived, we were put in space B2. This is one of four back-in sites just outside and separate from the main area. We were not happy campers and did not feel comfortable there at all. Particularly since we made reservations a few months in advance. It was particularly galling because the guy who arrived right in front of me was a drive-in who was assigned to the "last" pull through site. The next day we asked to be moved inside and were accommodated right away. During all this, the staff was very nice. Once inside, the sites were spacious enough and level. It was enjoyable for our last day and night. We would certainly return again but I would be a bit more specific about placement. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The reason to stay here is the visit to Monument Valley. Your pass will be good for two days. Be sure to take the guided tour. You will be taken to back country sites were unguided people can not go. Our eight person tour was great. We used "Safari tours" and I highly recommend them. Our guide was Toney, who gave great insight into both the Anasazi and the current Dene people.

Can't beat the view, setting and location. With that said, it's not a great RV park. Red dirt, dusty, muddy, narrow roads, lots of tent campers to clog up the restrooms, no pet area. Staff was not very helpful. Failed to give us card key for restrooms at check in. Not professional. Wicked speed bumps on the road leading to RV park. Utilities worked fine. Cable was good. WiFi was barely adequate. Sites are narrow, most not long enough for tow without parking sideways. Shade trees. Grocery, gas and car wash just down the road, part of the Goulding's other businesses. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Fun drive up the Moki Dugway to Natural Bridges National Monument. Worth the trip. Valley of the Gods very nice as well. Not much to Goosenecks State Park. $5.00 for a nice view of the San Juan River.

Despite being a tad overpriced, Gouldings RV park is on my list to stay if I return to that area. The staff is friendly, the park is very clean, and the RV spaces are easy in and out. Very clean, trash containers close to the sites. Utilities functioning, though water pressure was a bit low. The facilities (bath, laundry, pool) are not centrally located, though, so if you're parked on the far edge, it's a trek. On the whole, it is very clean. The resort shows John Wayne movies for free in it's tiny theatre - each night rotating through a few movies that were filmed there - Stagecoach (BW) being the most popular as it was John Wayne's breakout role and showcased Monument Valley, initiating the public to its wonders.

The grocery store is not really walking distance because the RV park section of the resort is up a steep hill from it. The on-site laundry facilities are clean but overpriced. The laundry facilities near the store were even more expensive. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

I would not take a Gouldings' tour again. We opted for the 2.5 hr afternoon tour and were disappointed. The guide was not friendly when we started, though he did loosen up a bit later on. The first part of the tour consisted of visiting "Lucy", a Navajo woman in a hogan carding, spinning, and weaving a blanket. Though it was interesting, the overall impression was that he was trolling for donations for her. During the tour, he took us on one "guide-only" road and missed quite a large part of the 17-mile loop. We had done the loop ourselves in the morning and wanted to revisit it in the afternoon for the different light, and missing that part meant that we missed good light on some of the features we were looking forward to seeing. If you can, check out the guides inside the park before committing yourself to a commercial tour.

Stayed 4 nights, full hookups, nice laundry, pretty good view of monument valley at a few of the sites, there is a local 10-20 minute hiking trail from the campground. Sites 34 and 45 are ideal. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

In site #60, NOT very level and FULL of black ants. Hookups conveniently located and easy to reach. Also had free dish satellite service so didn't have to pull out the dish! Very dusty (red dirt) every where, no place for the dog! Exterior drives pretty tight but manageable if your careful and go slow. Very dusty and it rained a bit which made it also muddy, our spot was just plain red dirt! I don't think we will stay there again, however while visiting Monument Valley there isn't much else around except for a campground inside Monument Valley, expensive but nice views of the valley. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

They did provide unit parking at no charge when we visited monument valley the next day. Very busy place lots of overnighters. Rest rooms clean, but again very busy. Call to get reservations or you might not get a spot for the night! Lots to see, but there is a fee for everything!

We had a confirmed reservation for a site for two nights. When we arrived, we were told there was no site for us and we were offered dry camping. No apology and no explanation. We were asked to go down the hill to Wayne's World. Couldn't find it and when we called for additional information, they told us to come back. We pushed it a little as we were ticked that they weren't living up to their commitment. We get that mistakes happen. If they had apologized and offered one free night of dry camping, we would have felt better about the whole thing. Anyway, they eventually found us a site with full hook ups but I worried that the "no room at the inn" would just happen to the next person arriving with a "confirmed reservation". They charged us more than the confirmed rate we had received rather than honouring the original rate. Nice park though - clean and quiet. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Not sure if you need to call the day you are arriving to ensure that your reservation still stands. The campground uses an on-line reservation system. If it is broken, I hope they fix it.

As others have noted, this is almost the only game in the area. Wifi was usable for the basics. Cell service was surprisingly excellent. No broadcast TV or radio available. Main CG has tighter spacing. It is augmented by additional spaces in parking areas and vacant lots, which we were in - making WalMart seem better! Water pressure a bit low. Nothing terrible, just pretty high priced. But, considering how remote you are from anywhere else, it is to be expected! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There are many, many tour companies offering tours of Monument Valley. Goulding's tours are convenient, but usually very crowded. We opted to go with a local Navajo owned company instead that meets inside the park. Note that admittance to the Monument is for two days per vehicle ($20 at this writing), and is run by the Navajo's, not the State for Federal government, so there are no discounts.

For where it is located, this was a good choice. The staff were nice, they worked hard to keep the campground tidy. The utilities and wifi were better than average in this area. That being said, this isn't a place where I'd stay for more than a few days. There is no play area for kids, and there is no area to exercise pets. They ask you to walk your pets in "undeveloped" areas, but they are choked with puncture vine. Most others must have the same opinion. We've been here for two days, and the CG pretty much empties out every morning, and is full by nighttime. They do have very nice tent camping areas. Nice sunrise view of Monument Valley too. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Monument Valley bus/jeep tours are very dusty. Bring old clothing to wear if you intend to do that. Lots of people had dust masks. You can also do a self-guided tour in your own car, which we did. Anything with a decent clearance (we have a Subaru) will be fine. The Navajo Nation Visitor Center has all the tour info.

Shop for groceries in Page or some other city, there are no places to buy food in the area other than Gouldings, which is limited.

Found this location to be better than expected. Staff helpful and friendly. Great views of mountains on three sides. Our site was near the east end so we had wonderful view of the buttes in the valley. Some sites smaller but most seemed to have a view at least on one side. Very convenient access to the Tribal Park.

Stopped here not realizing how busy campgrounds are in the southwest in September. VERY helpful staff offered us to try a spot a previous camper had not liked and left. Said if my husband could fit the 5th wheel in we could stay - he did! Big park full of Grand Circle caravan big rigs but plenty of room. Good restrooms, too. Great place to base to see Monument Valley and Arches Nat'l Park. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It is old and it is tight. We were here for a rally and getting 20, 45ft MH's in was tight. Most of us had to put our cars in strange angles to be able to leave the roads clear. No complaints with the view from the front of the park, or its closeness to Monument Valley. Just a case of coaches getting larger and no room to expand. My site was level. We were on a rally so no idea of cost. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Good view of the valley from our site. Fairly level, dirt/gravel pull through. Fifty Amp service with good water pressure and cable TV. Sewer connection is a bit far back in the site. Nice laundromat and store on site. Site is a bit short, I barely fit with my tow. Many sites have rises at the front that effectively shorten them.
