Very courteous and informative registration personnel. Power and water good (we use a surge protector with readouts as well as water pressure restricter anyway); cable kinda fuzzy but watchable. Used a couple small wood blocks under the rear tires to get absolutely level and could've been comfortable without them. Nice, short trail from the campground to a hidden arch. Be ready for red dust everywhere but deal with it. Lots of international travelers around. Only comment worth mentioning is that the 10 lb bag of ice we bought at the registration office was more like crushed ice than cubes - not a big deal! We would definitely return! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Took one of the offered tours of Monument Valley and weren't disappointed. Enjoyed local fry bread dishes at the restaurant and went into hock procuring a Navajo rug at the trading post/gift shop - definitely worth it though!

A shuttle runs from the campground to the restaurant/trading post/gift shop in the evenings. Don't miss the opportunity!

Not many options in this area, and this was the only place I saw with hookups, so it gets busy and requires reservations. We got a nice clean site with a view out our front window of the nearby canyon wall. WiFi is pretty much unusable, as was our cable tv. There is good satellite tv reception if you have it, but I wanted to watch an ABC sports program (go Warriors!) and Utah is out of my viewing area for local channels, so I really wanted to get the cable working. Lots of credit to the security/maintenance man Albert! He is Navajo, the nicest guy you'll ever meet, and worked for over an hour trying to resolve the cable problems. Not much success, but I really appreciated the effort. This seems like the place to stay in Monument Valley. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

I thought the sites were quite tight but adequate. Best park in area if you want hookups. Great historical information in lodge and there were grocery, gas and auto wash available nearby. Would stay again to tour the area. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The price was a bit steep for what you got. Dirt pads and sites were pretty close. Quiet and the surroundings were absolutely beautiful. Nice gift shop. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As mentioned earlier, the sites are a bit narrow but the location is right in the sandstone hills near the monument. 50amps, good water, good sewer, dusty with wind but this is the nature of this desert. We needed our heater in late April and our golden retriever gained a reddish hue as did the underside of the clouds passing over monument valley. It's a very good deal considering it is in the middle of nowhere, run by the friendly/artistic Navajo Indians, with monument nearby. There are tours available and a self drive as well. Many campers walk up to a hidden stone arch adjacent to the campground. There are many views you won't regret staying here guaranteed. Pets are welcome but please pick up if you own a dog. There are a couple local cats that don't. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Self driven tour of Monument Valley $20 one car, or various tours $56 - $70 per person from a couple hours to all day (with meal) in open pickup truck/bus tour type vehicles. Take sunglasses, water bottle and jacket as conditions change fast.

Good in and out with big rig. Utilities worked well. Our site was level but some others looked iffy. Wi-Fi was poor in our site but if I walked to the office it was better there. Verizon signal was extended service and came and went. What I expected from this remote location in a canyon. Nice people in office. Goulding's Deluxe valley tour picked up at the office. Our guide and was excellent! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is with Good Sam discount. The rate is high, but there are limited choices for this area. Site 20 is a full hookup site with cable and 50 amps and a partial view of Monument Valley. Low hanging tree branches had to be trimmed so they would not rub the coach. Good Verizon cell/MiFi coverage. There are two short hiking trails near the campground. Near the campground are groceries, laundry, gas, convenience store, restaurant and museum. Goulding's also has Monument Valley tours (additional fee). We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week. The sites are a little closer to each other than we like. The roadways within the park are asphalt but everything else is gravel and dirt. The bathrooms were so-so. The men's was inadequate for the amount of people who stay here. There was only one stall and two urinals. We had a good Wi-Fi signal and Verizon signal. They have an interesting museum with lots of movie memorabilia and trivia from the movies that were made here. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The spot was large enough, no tree limbs, level and easy in and out. The campground had good access to Direct TV satellite and the site afforded good access to a Verizon MI FI Card (Poor reception at best). The RV park has access to fuel . The road is paved). I would stay here again as the park has easy access to local attractions. The roads getting to and from were a bit rough so you will need to watch your speed. If you go on a jeep type tour, take the early morning as it is cooler and make sure and cover your nose with a scarf as there is a lot of blowing red dirt. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Great location. This is a very busy campground due to its location . Some trails right by campground for an evening stroll. My only complaint is people who bring their dogs and not pick up behind them and this is evident on the trails. We did a tour and they come right to the campground to pick you up. Would stay here again if I ever go back to monument valley. Be sure to tip your guide; ours did an excellent job. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful location, expensive, not big rig friendly, Wi-Fi slower than dial up and Verizon 1x not much better. As others have said, it is the only option in Monument Valley short of parking by the side of the road. Clean and friendly. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely setting in a red rock canyon near Monument Valley. Views all around are spectacular. Nice store and facilities. Was very windy and dusty during our stay. Many facilities (gas, grocery, restaurant) nearby. Would stay there again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Given the negative reviews we’d read before arriving we were expecting the worst, and actually changed our reservation from two nights to one night before we got there. But when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The staff at check-in was courteous and prompt. The site was level and all sites were reasonably far apart from their neighbors – probably 20-30’ between rigs. Most sites were pull-through, and the whole campground was nestled within beautiful red cliffs that were several hundred feet tall. As reported elsewhere, the Wi-Fi was worthless – and the only data signal my AT&T phone could pick up was a couple of bars of an Edge network (much slower than 3G or 4G) – so Internet access was basically not possible. But we weren’t there for that. The indoor pool was typical RV park size – enough for kids to play around, but not long enough for laps. It had an outdoor patio that we enjoyed sitting in after taking a dip (the weather while we were there was in the high 80’s). We also enjoyed the nightly showing of a John Wayne film that was shot in Monument Valley. The film wasn’t that great, at least by today’s standards, but it was fun viewing the scenes shot in the valley we were going to tour tomorrow. A John Wayne movie is shown every night at Goulding's lodge, which is too far to walk - but the RV park offers a shuttle to/from building at which the movie is shown (not a movie theater, but a room with 20-or-so folding chairs). We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful park for a visit to valley and Tribal Park. Check-in is efficient and cordial. Sites are level and water, sewer, and 30/50 amp electric is good. Our site had bad cable connection and was not fixed during our stay; although I managed to do it myself with a barrel connector to replace theirs. Nice walk above the campground to hidden arch in morning; a couple hundred metres at most and easy. Bathrooms and shower always seemed to be spotless; although listed cleaning times are only once a day. Security at gate for late night egress and ingress. Did not use the restaurant, but did enjoy the Stagecoach movie and history of Goulding's and its relationship with Hollywood. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

About the only convenient choice if you need to stay overnight to visit Monument Valley. The sites were close, but had more room than some places we've stayed. They were level and pull-through with enough room to park our tow vehicle. The view from the campground is about the most stunning of anyplace you could imagine. We had a late dinner at Goulding's Inn and it was pretty good. We would definitely pick here to stay again if in the area. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.
