The good about the location - it is away from the highway and has a partial view of the valley. The bad - it is next to a water station for the area residents to come bring their large tanks to fill (often with a diesel truck). We were in Row 1, Site 15 and it was very tight for our unit. We had to disconnect the truck and angle it carefully into the spot. We were very close to neighbors, to the point we asked one of them to heat with propane instead of their heat pump the next night. Also, some of the neighborhood dogs and cats roam the CG. The staff obviously works hard to clean the restrooms, but the management needs to spend a little to update the hardware - things were old and clean. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here so we could take their early morning tour which will pick you up right at the campground. This is really the only game in town. There are other campgrounds where you rent a patch of dirt with a great view. We had full hookups, a level site and good wifi surrounded by big red rocks and with a view of the mittens. Roads are paved and it's clean considering it's surrounded by red dirt. This is our 2nd time here. We've taken tours through Goulding's twice since we can leave our dogs in the RV with the AC running and just walk to the store to pick up the tour. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground was very dusty with red dirt everywhere. It could definitely use more gravel. Lots of the sites were not level. We were lucky and got one where we could level the coach. We stayed a week, probably about 4 days to many. Restaurant belonging to the campground was the worst experience we have had at a restaurant in recent years. Scenery is beautiful. We were in site 22. Verizon phone service with 2 bars but no internet. T-Mobile phone service but no internet. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Best place to eat is at "The View" Restaurant in Monument Valley. Admission is $20 per car for up to four people and the pass is good for four days.

There aren't a lot of choices for RV parks in Monument Valley. Goulding's has a long history in Monument Valley with an extensive collection of facilities: lodge, restaurant, gift shop, grocery, gas station, casitas and the RV park. The park is in a lovely location, however, it is on a fairly steep hill. It seems that when an RV park is located on a steep grade they almost never get the site pads level. That's the case here. Getting level is a bit challenging. The driveways are asphalt and the site pads are gravel and dirt. We had a pull-thru with full hookups, 50 amp electric, a picnic table, fire pit and a nice view. There is a cable TV connection but we didn't use it and there's free WiFi but we found it to be suboptimal. We were not able to get Verizon 4G data service here. If you are interested in a tour of Monument Valley, Goulding's has tours that pick up at the campground. We heard from others that their pricing is quite good compared to other options. We took the early morning Deluxe tour and enjoyed it. We paid $56.83 per night with Good Sam discount. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Big rigs be aware that not all sites are level. Our site was not level, very narrow with tree limbs that had to be cut before we could pull in. Car will likely be out in the road a little at a 15 degree angle. They made no effort to match the rig to the site. Some big sites had small popups or even tents. Trees need to be trimmed in every site. We had to use boards under the tires and jacks. Ask for a big site if you are 40 feet long. I would not stay here again.

We booked a small back-in site but didn't know how small it really was. We backed in to the site fine but discovered no room to put our Jeep. They suggested their parking lot. We moved the picnic table to the very back of the site and parked in front of it. It was a tight fit. If we visit again, we will get a pull through site. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The location alone is uniquely Monument Valley. Cannot get a lot closer and park your RV with full hook-ups and the very extensive amenities associated with the lodge. This is our 4th time and there surely will be a 5th time and more. There is a pool (never used), showers, etc. close to the sites. All previous sites gave excellent views of Monument Valley but this site only offered views of the next RV. Urge you to ask for end of row away from office (close to campground), alternatively the top row in order to get fabulous views. There are free John Wayne movies at the lodge, their restaurant has delicious Navajo Tacos (order the small - the regular will feed a family of 4). Views are simply fantastic. One of my favorite places on earth! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure you take the very expensive all day tour ($140 incl lunch) through Mystery and Monument Valleys - an unforgettable experience especially if your Navajo guide/driver is as good as all of ours have been (done this tour 3 times and learn/see many new things each time). Spend the few dollars and visit the new hotel at the drive entrance to Monument Valley.

Gouldings is gigantic. Not just the CG, but it is an entire resort complex with a lodge, motel, restaurant, store, gas station and tours into the Valley. There is a free shuttle bus to move you from the CG to the other areas. The Cg is built on a hill, area is basically red sand and sites have a bit of gravel to steady them. Blocking will be required. My spot had some shade, but most trees are immature. Well wwatered. WiFi worked fine. No delay. Check-in was efficient, the crew helpful. Beautiful surroundings.

Nice park with small swimming pool. Is a Monument Valley destination location so make reservations if you can, and yes expect to pay top dollar. We used their web site to make reservations but it was awkward and our second night reservation was lost, and they made it right by shuffling others around. Roads are paved, sites gravel, lots of smaller trees that need to be cut back to avoid scratching sides/top of RV. Sites are gravel, mostly NOT all that level but we were able to level. Sites not long enough to keep toad or pickup truck connected but can nestle in beside/front/rear however works best. Good electric, roof satellite was able to get past trees and over rock formations, good Verizon cellular. It was fun to park among the beautiful rocks. Very convenient to Monument Valley. Good place to pick up tours to park. Lodge has places to eat, shop, fuel, etc. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

The view is very nice with the park located in a red rock canyon. The site required leveling blocks and is gravel+dirt. We paid for the big rig premium site and it was just long enough that the truck+30ft 5th wheel would fit when hooked up. Disconnecting required that the truck to be parked to the side. Wifi had spotty reception and the power voltage ran in the low end. The sewer connection is at the rear of the site and I could only reach it by backing the trailer so the end stuck out into the roadway. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to the Golding's lodge to buy your souvenirs. Visit "John Wayne's" house - it was the filming location for his character in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. There is also a free (donation) museum at the lodge that has film memorabilia.

The park is in a canyon with red cliffs all around you which give a nice setting. Store with a souvenir shop and some supplies. Laundry and showers in the same building. You can also book a tour out of the store. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Only stayed one night enroute east, but we really enjoyed the campground. Our pull-through was long enough to stay hooked up and was quite level. It's out of the way, but has lots of amenities. The pull-through are very close together, but we had no problem getting in and out. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Goulding's RV Park in Monument Valley, Utah, and could not have been more pleased. The park is kept up very well. There is a small convenience store located in the park. The showers and restrooms are very clean and well maintained. We had an issue with a leak in the main water hose in our RV and maintenance was very helpful in trying to get it fixed for us. He was very patient and helpful. This is a great place to use as a base camp to see Monument Valley Tribal Park and also Natural Bridges National Monument among many others. We will definitely stay here again!! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is reasonably well laid out and the premium "big rig" sites are generally long and wide enough, although not very level (3 inches of lift on one side and still not completely level). The only issue we had with parking and exiting was the trees, which aren't much taller than the RVs but are allowed to grow out into the sites and roads. We parked initially and found a tree rubbing right up to one slide while it was still in. It would have been easy to trim it, but the maintenance lead refused, saying, "Our trees are too precious to trim". The office moved us one site over and looked confused when I suggested that they mark the site as tree-obstructed for the future. The new site had the tree at the front-right corner, which turned our pull-thru into a back-out, as we couldn't have made the turn. One neighbor with a brand new rig scratched the whole side on his way out. Otherwise, our stay was uneventful, although the wind definitely drove the fine red sand around quite a bit. Park WiFi was passable except in the evenings as things filled up and everyone tried to get online. DirecTV was fine but there was no OTA signal. Verizon was 3G in the campground but 4G once outside the canyon where the park is located. Watch out for the speed bumps on the road up to the campground. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Our motorhome is 36 feet and we paid extra for a big rig site so we could hook our tow car the night before leaving. The site was very unlevel and not long enough for the tow car. We needed to unhook before pulling into the site. Unfortunately, the campground does not have a convenient area to hook and unhook tow cars. When checking in, the person at the desk rattled off all the info but was not particularly receptive to questions. The best thing about the campground was the solitude and that it was surrounded by beautiful red rocks. However, because of the inconveniences, I would not stay here again.
