The only real option with hook-ups for the area. The campground is well maintained, but very crowded. Stray dogs roaming the grounds, so your a little afraid to walk your dog, not knowing if the strays are friendly. Wifi is non-exsistent. I would not recommend going there in a travel trailer. The spaces are extremely tight and very hard to maneuver your camper. We would not camp there again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is tucked back in the red rocks and it is the only full service RV Park near Monument Valley. No grass (this is southern Utah) but it has good 50 amps and level spaces. The main park is tight; however, as a big rig we were put in a back-in site up front (Site A-1) and it was large & private. There is a store, restaurant, gas station close by. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Gravel sites with tables, some with shade. The best things about this campground are the views, the tours and the friendly staff. Our site was level with water, electric, sewer and cable. We looked out on the beautiful sandstone cliffs, and it was an easy walk to meet our tour "bus" through the valley. Would most definitely stay here again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to take one of the tours through the valley.

The tours were nice but check the time on the stub they give you. They had the wrong time on our stub which made us late for our tour. The view was good from our site, the sites were in a beautiful canyon. Internet was good. Cable was good. Washers were $3. But the dryers were .75 and everything was dry with 1 try. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The resorts restaurant is OK, but the Navajo taco is great. Order the small one.

Being tucked away in the red rocks makes for a very unique & wonderful setting and our October visit was pleasant. But as this appears to be the only place with hook-ups for miles around, it's evident that this would be very crowded in busy summer months and difficult to maneuver in. WiFi & cable service were a pleasant surprise given this place is far away from nothing. Sites very tight and took a lot of pads to level. Restrooms very nice & clean. We would stay here again but would think twice about busy season. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You won't want to stay here too long. Of course, tour Monument Valley. Do your grocery shopping before you get here as there are no markets; just one convenience store.

This is about the only true option in the area if you want hook-ups. The lots are gravel and the driveways are paved. The complex has it's own grocery store, gas station, car wash, and prepared food a little ways down from the campground. The utilities worked great with no problems. Laundry was good except a little high in cost per load. Very dog friendly even with a lab-rottweiler mix however no dog park. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Just a heads up this area has no alcoholic beverages at all so bring your own with you.

We didn't get the kind of site we reserved. Instead we got a site near the road that had speed bumps and barking dogs from the house in the back. Overall it was okay. They offered a lot of activities, so that made up for the site. The site was not level at all. The bottom step of our coach was about 1 1/2 feet from the ground. They should really do something about those 4 sites on that row. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Person behind the counter took her good time to even recognize I was waiting to register. Attitude was why are you bothering me? Was given a back-in site which was OK with me. Site was all dirt and terribly un-level. To avoid low-hanging tree limbs had to stick out in street. Thankfully a maintenance employee came by, saw my dilemma and cut the limbs, allowing me to back up. WIFI was worthless, was unable to even connect for the two days of our stay and I was only feet from the office. The only thing going for this park is its location. Valley tours pick you up at the park and you do not have to drive anywhere. However, tours end after check-out time so you will have to spend two nights in the park to take even a 1/2 day tour. Definitely over-priced for what you get and poorly run, but location! location! location! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Truck Camper.

Campground is well maintained and has an indoor swimming pool by the campground side of the complex. Wi-Fi connection is basically non-existent because of an on-going repair that has been going on for a long time as we learned upon checking in. Wi-Fi is available by the lodge part of the complex but is slow. The cost of $3.00 per wash load is the highest of all the campgrounds we've been to. We won't camp here again as we feel the price is high especially not having Wi-Fi available. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure to try the Navajo Taco at the restaurant.

Our site was a pull through, with a great view. The campground had a nice store, and amenities. There were at least 3 stray dogs running around which was very scary for us when walking our dogs. The loose dogs seemed friendly enough, but still a dangerous situation for dogs and their owners. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 3 nights for our first-ever visit to Monument Valley. There is another campground in the tribal park, but there is no shade at all (or hookups); Goulding's has at least minimal shade and of course has hookups. Sites numbered in the 30s have more space than those with the low numbers, and some of the sites in the 20s and 30s have pretty nice shade. There are a few sites that park in a line (i.e. one RV in front of another) - good for folks traveling together. There have been a few comments about sites not being level; ours wasn't completely so, but a couple blocks under the wheels sufficed just fine. The staff running the place were invariably pleasant and helpful. Yes, the price is a bit high, but the scenery can't be beat! We really enjoyed the tour of the valley and the convenience of being picked up right at the campground. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Meals in Goulding's Lodge are good & plentiful, and many feature Navajo fry bread and other local specialties. The John Wayne movies at the lodge are fun; you can take a shuttle there from the campground, or drive yourself. Nice little museum there too, based on the Gouldings who started the place, and on the movies filmed in the valley. No Verizon cell service here; roaming only. We kind of enjoyed being "off the grid" for a few days, in that respect.

If you want a place within a few miles of Monument Valley, this is the place. We did two nights and visited Monument Valley. There were full hookups but the Internet and cable did not work. The sites are dirt and took a lot of work to level the trailer. One person in our group had to dig holes for the uphill tires and raise the downhill tires 6 inches to get level. That being said, this is the only game in town near Monument Valley and there is no reason not to go there for a couple nights. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Monument Valley is about 4 miles away. Motor homes are not allowed in the valley due to the rugged road. If you are in a motor home you can leave it there and take the shuttle tour of Monument Valley right from Gouldings.

This is the 2nd time come to Gouldings - booked 5 days - the site I was given had some big tree branches so I asked for options on a site and selected another one near the office. There was an overhanging tree at the exit which I trimmed myself in order to pull my 45' rig out without scraping the sides. Site was level, power/water/Sewer all fine - no picnic table so moved an extra one over from another site. WiFi was pathetic - I could draw webpages faster than they load on my computer. Told office and they said 'they're working on it'. That seems to be CG's excuse. Verizon didn't work at all but have a duplicate ATT phone for those times when Verizon doesn't work. Convenient pickup for tour at CG. There's not much choice in the area with hookups as others have pointed out . Many one night visitors in rental RV's but that makes these stays more interesting Would stay again but not for more than 2 nights. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Good park. Great location for touring Monument Valley. Site was level and I like the fact the maintenance folks were out and working on the grounds. Everything was fine. We picked up the tour right at the campground office. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi on the grounds was limited. My MiFi worked fine.

I downgraded this a bit because the choices are limited and the prices are high. But we'd still come back again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We were able to change our tour time from Friday morning to Thursday afternoon. Glad we did because we avoided the rain.

Our second day there we went through the museum which was excellent.

We arrived few minutes after 10pm when they were closing the office. But they were very nice and checked us in. We got a small lovely tent site in a beautiful area. Have no complaints. Showers were clean and the same toilets. Lots of people, yet you got some privacy. Highly recommend this welcoming place! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Tent.
