Monument Valley

Hi,

We took a trip to Az, Ut, Co, in 04 but missed Monument Valley. We are planing a trip this year to the same area and would like to visit Monument Valley before heading on north.

We travel in motor home only, no toad, and have to use the MO to do our touring. We would like to stay as close as possible to Monument Valley.

Any suggestions and ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ron

Hi Ron,
We will also be in the Monument Valley area this summer. The pickings are kind of slim with regard to CG's. The prices reflect that. We will be staying at Goulding's Monument Vally & RV park 435-727-3235. Goulding's CG is on the Utah side of the border with AZ.

A little farther north (about 10 miles) on RT 163 is Valle's RV Park 435-683-2226.

A little farther up the road (about another 10 miles) is Cadillac Ranch RV Park 800-538-6195. Nearby is Cottonwood RV Park 435-672-2287.

Consider calling the CGs and getting their details. There is a wide range of rates and amenities.

We stayed at Cadillac Ranch in Bluff, UT and drove back to Monument Valley in the toad.

Monument Valley is a Navajo Tribal Park. If you go without a toad, you will not be able to drive through Monument Valley in your motorhome because the roads are fairly rough. There are private Jeep tours that you could take. Click HERE for the Monument Valley web site. They list the approved tours, and you would have to call for reservations and to see if they had RV parking at the departure point of the tour.

Why not stay right in Monument Valley at Gouldings. Some great view sights, full hookups, and close to everything.

Thanks for the replies.

It looks like Goulding's Monument Vally & RV park is our best bet.

I'm not afraid of rough roads, well maybe if they were only for 4W drive vehicles

I hate the thought of visiting there in July but that's the only time we have off and I don't want to miss it this time around.

Ron

Ron & Dee:

Yup, Goulding's would be our suggestion also. It's a beautiful campsite surrounded by huge red rock cliffs & boulders and was easy enough to access even with our 45 ft. MH even if a little tight. Since you're without a toad, Goulding's is good since ya can catch the shuttle over to the motel/restaurant and museum area at the trading post, and/or you can take one of the monument valley tours right from the campground. We elected the full day tour including trail lunch and it takes you to the real valley sites since there are many places ya cannot go to without a Navajo guide....we think it was about $95. each and WELL WORTH IT!!

Do you know if the shuttle and tours are wheel chair accessable?

Thanks,

Ron

Most passenger cars would be OK, but I wouldn't tank anything bigger than a Class B into the Tribal Park. I recommend looking into one of the tours if you're not taking a toad.

Ron & Dee: Ya know,....we don't know for sure whether tours and shuttles are wheelchair accessible. I know the tour we took had a fella along who used crutches, and there certainly was no chair lift.

I'd for sure give Goulding's a call and ask them about wheelchair accessible tours and/or shuttles. I'll bet they DO have such assists.
