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.

This maybe one of the most scenic parks we've ever stayed in. It's right in the heart of one of the mesas that are part of Monumental Valley. It also has the BEST WIFI network of any park we've ever stayed in. There is a large grocery store close as well as a gas station that has diesel and can accommodate any size motor coach. There is a pool, laundry, convenience store as part of the office. You are about 4 miles from the loop that is the major tourist attraction of the Valley. There is also a good restaurant about a mile from the RV park and the gas station has pizza and fast food. The bad news: the pad sites are not level so bring some leveling blocks or ramps and most of the rigs I saw needed an extension for black water. It is also a very tight park. I was in slot 48 in a 40' motor coach and I needed to wait until the sites directly across left in morning to be able to pull out. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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

Tight sites, narrow roads. If it rains you will be mopping red mud out of your coach. Can not blame campground for rain but can for lack of prepared sites. Will not be back. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

On the plus side, this campground is located in a scenic area with beautiful red rock hills all around, plus it's conveniently located to Monument Valley. However, be aware of your site assignment if choosing to stay here. Sites A1, B2, C3, and D4 seem fairly new, marginally level, and constructed in an overflow/parking lot area. A campground building located adjacent to this area that becomes occupied at night by locals who park their autos next to the building crowding the area. The main campground seems tight and hard to maneuver in if in a motorhome. Fortunately, is didn't rain during our stay or the red mud would be everywhere. Unfortunately, this is the only full-hookup campground in the area; not likely to return. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

After a long drive to Monument Valley we finally arrived at the campground. The good thing was check-in is open until late. I soon found out why; every guest gets a very detailed welcome. I prefer to check in and if I have any questions I'll ask them. They even told us which John Wayne movie was playing in the theatre.

Site was level, no concrete or asphalt but red dirt. The location of the fire pit was not logical so we didn't use it. Kids loved the indoor pool, nice warm water and big enough. Scenery was nice.

All and all a bit overpriced for what you get, it is clear the price is based on the fact it's the only hook-up campground around Monument Valley. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Perfect location close Monument Valley. A little tight for big rigs but manageable. Paved roads with sandy sites. Most are fairly level. Very quiet surroundings. Convenient grocery and fuel close by. Very open for satellite dish. Wifi was good. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Explore the Monument Valley. We took a tour. Well worth the money. You're on the Navajo Reservation so take the time to learn about the local culture. If you're a John Wayne fan, you've come to the right place.

This is a good place for a day or two to see Monument Valley. They have good cable and a great setting between canyon walls. We had to raise one wheel 2 inches to level camper. The internet connection was fast and open. Someone placed a virus on my computer, but was able to clean with virus software. Beware of the internet. Many of the sites shared the same pullin site or rvs were back to back with duel connections. ATT was good but it was 3G. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If you go to see The View across the street from Gouldings, the cost is $20 for up to five people and is good for two days. Several Indians were selling jewelry along the highway, jewelry is alot cheaper in price here than in Arizona.

This is the second time we have stayed here. This was not nearly as nice as the first time; the reason being is that they have employees who don't follow the rules concerning dogs. Stay away from sites near #60. About 30-40 yards away is a home where (I was told) the restaurant manager lives. They have a minimum of two dogs who run loose. One decided to start barking @ 1:00 AM. It would bark for a few minutes and shut up. Just as you are about to fall asleep he starts up again. This went on for about an hour and he finally quit until 7:00 AM. Overall the park is very nice and the office was extremely friendly. WiFi was great and satellite no problem. It is a great location for exploring Monument Valley. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Good sized sites. Even with neighbors it was quiet & comfortable.

Cleanest restrooms I've seen in a park.

Sites weren't paved or concrete, but packed earth. We had a little trouble getting level (as in, we never were really level the whole time). Wifi was fine the whole time. This is important for us road warriors, and we didn't really have any issues. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Gouldings is tucked in a gorgeous red slip rock canyon a few miles west of the Navajo Monument Valley Park. You pay for the location. Check in was OK; staff perfunctory but professional. Interior roads are paved but narrow; had a [problem getting out when the park allowed rigs too long for some sites in. Utilities were first rate. Cable snowy first two nights, OK on the third night. Wi-fi was excellent. Campground store doesn't have much except tourist junk, but there is a good grocery store a half mile away, with a large gas station/convenience store nearby. Ate dinner at Gouldings Lodge. The food was forgettable and the service as perfunctory as the check in. But the campground is by far the best (only?). We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

It can cost over $100 per person for the guided tours of Monument Valley. But for $20 entrance fee you can make the seventeen mile loop drive in your own car and see almost everything the tours see.

Do NOT MISS Valley of the Gods, a beautiful scenic drive very similar to Monument Valley, without the crowds. It is BLM land and FREE!. Drive 40 minutes of so north on Hwy 163, about ten miles north of Mexican Hat to Forest Road 242. Valley of the Gods info is easy to find in a Google search.

This is really just one of two campgrounds within 30 or more miles, and the only one with hookups. The other is a dry-camping gravel parking lot near the entrance to the canyon. I was satisfied with the sites and getting in and out. Laundry was also OK, although a bit expensive at $3 a load, but this is desert and water is scarce here. The check-in lady did not seem to know the answers to many of the questions I asked about exactly where the tour I scheduled went and what the tour bus was like. One problem for those who do not have a car is that the hotel and market are quite a ways down a hill on the roadway. I got a small amount of Verizon voice and data, which I was happy with. I tried the campgrounds free Wifi, and it did not work well, even with my booster. In any case, I would stay here again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

I took the 3 hour tour on the valley that was offered by Gouldings and picks up at the campground. Basically it was seats and a rough frame welded on a flatbed truck. It was extremely bumpy and being flung around hurt my back. It is still really painful. I should have sat closer to front or see what vehicles other tours used. Overall, I highly recommend some sort of tour because much of the area inside the valley is off-limits to non-Navajo vehicles.

Location, location, location! This park was amazing, nestled in a gorgeous canyon. Dirt and gravel road to park but not too bad. Site was immaculate, level-ish and all services worked fine. Grocery store, diesel and propane on site. The view from rv site was majestic. Friendly staff. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful view thru the pass and all around. Over priced but really the only game in town if you want full hook-ups. Site was red sand mixed with dirt and some gravel. Cable was fuzzy. WiFi worked well when it connected but sometimes connecting was problematic. Verizon jetpack was useless. A wind storm blew in and it really was a big one. I believe that the pass at the bottom of the campground helped to intensify it. I had to put my Jeep at the rear of my trailer to lessen the impacts of the gusts. My neighbors rig was blown off its blocks and bent one of the stabilizers. I now know where all my leaks are since I have red sand in every crack and crevice.

The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
