Canyon De Chelley

Would you do the rim tours in the motorhome/toad or take the toad, only?

Thank you,
Ron

We stayed in the campground at the mouth of the canyon and only took the toad. If you are not staying in the area, find a place to park the rig and go in the toad. Much easier maneuvering at the pull outs and stops. More parking too!

I would also recommend the toad and not your motorhome. If you are staying at the campground in the park, it's an easy drive in your toad to visit all of the stops. Our favorite way to visit the canyon is to hire an Indian guide and ride the horses into the canyon. This can be done at the stables at the canyon's entrance. We have done that twice. By going into the canyon, you can see much more that can't be seen from the top.

Take the Navajo guided tour into the canyon, horseback or jeep. You won't regret it.

also- The reservation is dry, so if you like an adult beverage there are none available. If you have alcohol in your rig enjoy it inside. The USFS campground there is free, I think for one or 2 nights. We were kind of surprised at the poor conditions on the reservation but I guess that is not unusual. Even at that the visit to the canyon was worthwhile

Take the toad and enjoy. Camp at the CG at the entrance. Also do the in the canyon tour, you see twice what you see from the top, plus you get a native American view of the canyon history. If you take the big truck 6x6 take a cushion and the lunch is good with toilet stops frequent enough.

The Indian Nation has taken over the campground and their is a fee now. I think it's $10/night which is still a bargain cuz it is a nice CG. It is very poor around there and the locals come in every evening to fill up their water jugs. Still, it is a fantastic place to visit. BTW, I would also park the RV and take the toad.
