This is not US Forrest or a national park, it is owned by the Navajo nation. $20.00 fee.

Not Bad
Good for a quick stay. No hookups, but at $14/night, you can’t expect too much. Nice layout with paved level sites, lots of shade trees, tables, bathrooms, and a dump station. There are a lot of burrs in the “grass”. Pretty quiet park, with scattered tenters and RVs (November). No on-site manager, so expect self-serve. The town of Chinle is pretty sketchy.

Pretty grove of trees. Roving packs of begging dogs in the evenings. Barb wire security fencing. We locked our door at night. Near main road. Worth a night or two to see the Canyon.

Will Be Back
This lovely campsite backs up against the Canyon De Chelly. Both back in and pull through. Saw at least a 40 ft rig. What I liked is trash cans throughout, so you don’t have to wrangle with a dumpster. Bathrooms. I didn’t see a dump site but don’t quote me on that. They do have potable water. $14 per night, however in cash only. Park ranger was a lovely lady very pleasant. This is on my permanent list

Stayed two nights. Never more than four other campers in the camp grounds. Bathrooms clean, plenty of garbage cans, no complaints for me. No hookups, but there is a dump station and water for your holding tanks!

Even though it is in a national monument, no nps sr discount. Still ok. Lots of bthrms, close to everything, a Jeep tour wonderful. Watch out for generators

Good Stopover
Very open space, always close to a bathroom. We were there in late April, and their water was “in repair”. I think not turned on is more like it. Have a dump station, but nothing else - no electric, no water.

Needs Help
The campground is right next to a busy roadway. There was a ton of trash laying around the park and the grounds are not kept up. Restroons need some TLC. No host or rangers were ever seen.

Great Stay
Enjoyed our 2 nights here and exploring the cannyon. Greatly enjoyed the one hike down to the canyon floor. Water, 3 loops, and dump station still open. Bathrooms a little well-used.

It Works
Stayed here in October 2014 and March 2017 in a 31' class C. $14 a night. Nice big sites, easy access. Saw numerous rigs bigger than ours there. Be prepared if you go in the off season (October-March). They shut down the water spigots and bathrooms in loops 2 and 3, the dump station and the RV water filling station. None of this is noted on the campground's website. There is one water spigot in loop 1 and you're limited to using a 5 gallon can or smaller to get water for your RV. No biggie...I needed the exercise. Close to numerous convienence stores and easy access to the visitor center and both rims of Canyon De Chelly. They have warning signs asking not to feed the stray animals. We counted 5 dogs roaming the campground, including 2 larger ones. None appeared aggressive but we still made sure we were always outside when we had our smaller dog leashed to a post. Not the nicest campground we've stayed in but it worked for what we were there for (to see Canyon De Chelly).

Ok camping for a night or two. No hookup. Paved driveways and site driveways. $14 per day. The camp could use some general maintenance. Weed growth around bbq and picknick tables is out of control. Some minor litter removal is need.
