A long anticipated trip to Chaco Canyon was recently realized. The quietness and isolation of Chaco Canyon proved to be a great place for self reflection and focused study of an amazing culture that peaked over 800 years ago.
Primitive camping with no hookups is available at Gallo Campground, located one mile east of the Visitor Center. The campground is situated among the fallen boulders and cliffs of Gallo Wash.
The campground offers camping in a rugged environment, surrounded by petroglyphs, a cliff dwelling, inscriptions, and a high desert landscape. There is no shade. Potable water and a dump station is located near the visitor center
The campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Camping is limited to 14 days. Each campsite costs $10.00 per night. Interagency Senior pass holders pay $5.00 per site, per night.
