Monument valley navajo tribal park ?

As anyone driven this in a Rv? We are doing the details on the roads we want to take on our trip, and I would like to include that drive but all the videos I see on YouTube don't show a Rv driving.

I saw 1 or 2 Class C motorhomes when we drove through the tribal park, but I would never consider taking a Class A on those roads. I think the road to the visitor center is paved; but the roads on the scenic drive through the tribal park are all dirt, and they are rather uneven in places. Stay in Bluff, UT and take the toad to the tribal park. If you don't have a toad, there are Jeep tours through the tribal park you can take.

That being said, U.S. Highway 191 goes right through Monument Valley, and that is a good road. You can catch views of some of the formations, but the scenic drive through the tribal park is much better.

Check out Goulding's (sp?) RV park across the highway from the tribal park entrance road. Site 32 has a great view of the valley. They also run tours with Navajo guides from there.

There are many roads and sights that you cannot take a personal vehicle on. The best way to see everything is to take the guided tour. When we were there in '07 their vehicles were nothing more than a pickup with make-shift seating in the back, not to attractive a prospect for someone like me and a bad back.

The other roads that they would allow us to use with our vehicle were dusty but safe and the sights were well worth it. I would not try to drive my RV in there, but there is a great campground that was mentioned and no need to drive your coach if you have a tow.

We are going to be just driving threw but we figured we would leave early enough to get there and take the tour. Do you know if there is a place we can drive the rig to and unhook the toad and drive in?
