Really neat park, tucked in the rocks at Monument Valley. Clean and new. Nice attention to detail. Lights in the evening are amber. All buildings, furniture, and utilities are painted to blend in with the surrounding rock. Wi-Fi really decent, though park wasn't full either. Park store clean and well stocked. Leveling more challenging due to terrain, but we did OK. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is all about the location! Getting in and out is a bit of a challenge, even for a smaller 5th wheel (32ft). The roads are narrow asphalt and the sites are gravel. While our site didn't look level, we were able to get there without using blocks. It was, however, a little short and required parking our truck perpendicular to the trailer. Also, we had to move it twice to allow some huge motorhomes to pass. We did have a great view from our site, and the area is beautiful. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived and were delighted with what we saw. Fabulous campsite up a canyon with huge beautiful cliffs all around. Our site looked down into Monument Valley. Full hookups on red dirt. Only drawback is cockleburrs if you have pets with you but thats only if you walk them off the road/trails. Great facility. Has everything you need. Totally operated by Navajos and the service is great. Folks are very nice. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I drove in here from the south rim of the Grand Canyon and was thrilled to find it in the dark. I had expected a flat dirt lot similar to a truck stop, but was shocked to find the Check-In facility open and the woman at the counter was prepared for us.

We stayed in site 32 which had a nice picnic table and grill. I didn't realize how special this was till the next morning and was in awe of it all. The views were remarkable. More than I ever dreamed of. The night we checked in, my wife and I decided to book a guided full day tour of Monument Valley. We immediately booked an additional nights stay along with our tour.

The next morning our Navajo guide picked us up at the campground office and we had the experience of a lifetime. We are so happy we made the decision to come to Gouldings, and I highly recommend it to all who want to experience the amazing Monument Valley scenery up close and personal! We loved it All! Special thanks to our tour guide! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two nights in a travel trailer. The setting of this campground is absolutely beautiful set in the rocks with a view of Monument Valley. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

When staying in the campground our main goal was to do the self-guided driving tour of Monument Valley. It was very convenient to the park and the visitor's center which also had a nice store. Gouldings has a nice hotel and restaurant nearby.

The Goulding lodging and campground facilities seemed to have grown tremendously in the last 10 yrs when my family was last there. Campground sites were still well spaced with small trees usually between sites and adequate hookups. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Access to Navajo tours was right there and convenient. If you're visiting Monument Valley, Goulding is a good place to stay. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park, but very uneven lots, close by your neighbors, hard to park our truck. Showers nice and clean as are the restrooms however showers are small with no bench. Only two hooks for your clothing. Indoor pool looks nice but we didn't use it. Staff was very nice. Close to Monument Valley is a plus, the only RV Park in the area and I think they take advantage of it. Gouldings owns just about everything in the area, grocery store, gas station, cabins, restaurant, on and on. If you want to see Monument Valley this is the place to stay but good for a one time visit. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The nicest park in the area. Good paved inner roads with graveled sites. Signage is very good. Utilities are convenient and reliable. The Goulding's complex has about everything you might need ... fuel, groceries, simple restaurant, gift shops. Park is well-maintained. Excellent views of one of the prettiest places on earth!

Tips for other Campers:

Monument Valley is one of those places that can be called "eye candy!" The Navajo Nation Tribal Park is worth the time it takes to drive through (maybe about 3-4 hours). No RVs, but if your vehicle has some ground clearance, like a pickup or SUV, then no need to spend the money for one of the "guided tours."

Location, location, location. This place has it. It's about 5 miles from the Visitor Center for Monument Valley. It is easy to get here and easy to maneuver in the park into your site. Our red dirt site was level and had a fire pit and a picnic table. We were surrounded by beautiful red rocks and there are actually several trails here, one right from the park up to see a cool arch. There is an area close to the dump where you can hook up or unhook. There is a pool, a clean laundry and a dog area. Along with the campground is a very nice museum about the history of the place, a grocery store, gas station, gift shop and a motel. There is a shuttle to get you from the campground to these facilities. Make your reservation early because I'm sure in season this park is full. They also run a variety or tours through Monument Valley. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Over priced for the site we had. Didn't see a lot of big rig friendly sites. We barely fit without having to disconnect with a 40' fiver. Staff at desk were teenagers, had a difficult time giving change; but friendly. This was an overnite stop, but the tours they offered looked interesting. We were directed across the entrance road to bring the dogs, scruffy field with hidden snakes, or so my wife thought. Park is gavel and red dirt. Sites were close, but heh, you get to know your neighbor; especially when they dump their tanks as you're sitting at your picnic table eating. Pretty surroundings, nice indoor pool. Some shade as it is hot, imagine that in the desert. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was the perfect location to experience Monument Valley. The campground is situated in a small canyon with a beautiful view of MV. Service was good. While I would not classify the sites as Big Rig Friendly, they are certainly manageable. Trees adjacent to the sites prevented awning and satellite deployment. Staff was helpful juggling sites to try to make it work. Water pressure was good as well as internet. Be sure to use surge protector/low voltage protection. When CG was full experienced low voltage at several sites. It would also new nice if the staff cleaned the BBQ stands. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful views from the park. Well maintained and great staff. Easy to enter and leave. Laundry was well maintained. I would have rated a 10 were it not for the stray dogs that visited every evening around dinner. That kept us from enjoying a meal outside.

Great park, with great views. Efficiently run by staff. big rig friendly. did not use wifi or cable. In short this is a great park. We love the combination of rv'ers and campers. Lots of children and foreign travelers. Only complaint would be that they do not enforce the speed rules. There are so many walkers and children people need to drive very slow. What are we in such a hurry for? We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's Monument Valley which is stunning. Recommend if you do not have a hearty vehicle, you do go on a tour. The road through the park is very bad and would be difficult for a smaller car to navigate. We have a large truck.

It looks like Gouldings is pretty much the whole town. They have a lodge, restaurant, campground, general store and who knows what else. The campground is not bad for this part of the country. It's very clean and well laid out. Most all the sites are pull-through with full hookups. The park filled up with "Cruise America" rental units. This must be one of their popular stops. After touring Monument Valley be sure to see their free full length John Wayne movie (shown every night) and see the same rocks you saw at Monument Valley. It's great fun to see the movie scene go by the same monument multiple times! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.
