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.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Had a couple of great tours with Gouldings. What an amazing place!

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the half day monument tour! Well worth it!

Chili and fry bread are delicious. Good breakfast in restaurant.

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.

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.
