We camped there a couple of years ago. It's a very nice campground...no hookups, of course. I'd highly recommend it.

Been there several times. The cg is really nice, plenty of room between sites and it is covered with cottonwood trees. There are restrooms and water available. BUT, the reason to go there is to see the canyon.

We camped there in 2006 with our 38' motor home and towing a mini-van. There were only a couple of spots big enough for us, but the camp host was very good to steer us to spots we fit in. What I remember most about the campground was that while quite pretty, it had ANTS. I stress ANTS because there were so many ANTS. We saw so many people come and set up their tents and then pack it all up in less than an hour because the ANTS weren't just at the site we were at.

There were ANTS that decided to travel with us when we left and we like to never got rid of them. If you stood with feet on ground in your campsite for more than one minute, they (the ANTS)were on your legs. Not biting, just creepy.

So, we loved Canyon de Chelly, but if we go back we have made a note to take a bag of ANT poison. Since a NP you might need to be stealthy about sprinkling it around, but I wouldn't go without it.

Donna, what time of year were you there? I don't remember any ant problem when we were there in April 2006.

This was the last week or so of July or first week of August 2006 as we were on our way out to California for my MIL's 85th birthday. We stayed there for 2 or 3 days, but could only sit outdoors if we kept our feet propped up in some manner, like on the bench of the site's picnic table. We checked around to see if we could move, but all the sites we checked had the same bazillion ant mounds that were in our site too, so we decided it was not worth it to move.

An interesting place, and we would go again....we just would have a bag of ant granules with us.

We've camped at the free campground on site twice in the past 4 years, both times in late May, early June. There were at least 20 -30 sites big enough for our DP. Canyon DeChelley is one of the most overlooked yet most interesting places in the U.S.

There was a LOT of uncontrolled dogs running all around the camp ground-= No license tag on them. Probable Indian owned and likly had not had any shots, like rabies vaccinations!!
