A Good Place
We stayed 2 nights as our base for Monument Valley. This is on Navajo Land, be aware that neither the convenience store nor the grocery store — or any store fir that matter — sell beer. You’ve been warned.
The park is situated against a mountain where you can hike on easy trails, and where you have a good view of Monument Valley in the distance. I certainly recommend this park.

Yes the interior roads leading to the sites are narrow, maneuvering a large RV is tricky and the sites are somewhat unlevel. But it's all doable. And the beautiful scenery makes it all worth while. Take the morning 3.5 hour tour through Monument Valley! The staff was most accommodating. Laundry was fully functional and clean. Stayed 3 nights in a 32 foot Class A, would definitely stay again if in the area.

One Of The Best RV Parks
Yes. The RV campground is open, but very pricey at around $65- $75/night. Full hook ups, and cable TV. During the COVID crises, while closed, they made some significant improvements. I would have given 5 stars, but most of the sites are not level and a tight fit. Had no problem parking our 40-foot Montana 5er. The campground sits in an area surround by beautiful red stone monuments. The view is spectacular. There is a restaurant, gas station, store, showers, laundry, clean restrooms and they have several different jeep tours of Monument Valley at a very reasonable price. The suggestion I have is have a lot of leveling blocks. We had site #34 and was so uneven that one of our tires was raised off the ground with auto level.

Don’t bother coming here. Monument Valley is closed! I guess the Navajo don’t believe CDC guidelines. Yellowstone and most other outdoor venues opened last June.

This RV Park has the best view (Site 34) of any park I’ve been to, it is also the most expensive park I have ever stayed in, ($75.), but worth it. Great amenities, restaurant, grocery. A small store in RV office. Dog walk areas, hiking trails and beautiful rides even though Tribal Park closed. The gas station undergoing renovation, something that would have been nice to know in advance as nearest gas 20 miles away.
Only complaint... the roads in the park are narrow, trees have been planted that make parking and leaving difficult without scraping the sides of your rig. And please, please level your sites. I was first assigned #26. By parking way towards the front I could level with 4.5” of blocking on the camp side but couldn’t get up the stairs and my 30’ of sewer hose wouldn’t reach the sewer connector. Was moved to #34, still 3” of blocking but a much better site. I have a 36’ 5th wheel, those with larger trailers and Class As were having a much harder time. NO Verizon cell service

40 Ft Class A
Very expensive with spaces that are not very level. Older place with very narrow internal roads and tight turns. Space would not allow me to pull forward to exit without scratching my complete right side of the rv from tree branches.

This is a very nice park. Wi-Fi didn’t work but hopefully it will be fixed for the next person.

Goulding’s (pronounced “Goulding’s”) is very nice w/everything you need & extremely clean. Tips:
1. The lodge is historical so take time to watch the short info film, especially if you’re a John Wayne fan. Also enjoyed the John Wayne movie after the historical film. We watched “Searchers”, which was filmed locally and enjoyed it.
2. We didn’t notice that some sites have insulated water hookups so ask for a spot with an insulated hookup during cold temps.
3. We used their very clean showers but no benches in the shower stall. However, there are a few light-weight portable shower stools stacked near the door that you can use to hold items. Hooks (2) are also on the back of each shower door. Bring your own hair dryer.
4.Found large sand burrs on our dogs feet & coat so check your pets.
5. Last entrance to the Valley drive is 4:30p but you can stay late once inside. Awesome sights!
6. Goulding’s is a little high priced but very nice.
7. Staff won’t win “most friendliest” award but OK.

Very expensive, every single thing is overpriced: ice, laundry, orange juice, milk... Facilities not that new for the price. Good views.

It would be impossible to pick a more spectacular location. We will visit Monument Valley again and stay at Gouldings. The complex is more like a tiny city.

Pretty Spot, But...
We were in a 43 ft motor home. No problem getting in, but to get out, you have to make a sharper than 90 degree turn at the end of the rows. OK, except when trucks and vehicle are parked everywhere. Some of the sites are horribly unlevel. My rear wheels would have had to be off the ground in the first site they gave me, but I was able to move. Quiet except for exceptionally loud air or refrigeration equipment between us and the office. Like having your neighbor running his generator all night. Fine red dust everywhere. OK for smaller RVs, but I’d take a big rig elsewhere. You might get a reasonably level spot, you might not

Not Even Close To Level
Goulding’s is a nice Park, but some of the sites were extremely unlevel

This is a well cared for RV park. No fire pit, but it was about 100 degrees anyway. They have an indoor pool to help break the heat. Nice laundry and showers. Make sure to go outside early in the AM to catch the sunrise. Take the morning tours of Monument Valley!

Absolutely Breathtaking Beauty
Wonderful park! Great views for either sunrise or sunset. Well maintained and clean with polite staff. The restaurant was great. I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed in the John Wayne cabin from ‘She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.’ The modern has encroached just a bit to close to it, but it’s still a great photo op.

Good location. Nice views of the surrounding red rock and cliffs. Sites close together. Hook ups easy to access. Convenient gas station and grocery in the area. Bathrooms need work. One stall, broken lock. Handle on the door to hold on too to keep it closed. Privacy - hold on tight!

Wonderful staff and of course the location is amazing. I have a 42’ toy hauler and the first space we were in was very tight and with the angled approach to that space we were unable to offload our side by side and had to go to a different space.
Found out there were no trails to ride the side by anyhow.
Still a great place. Food at the lodge was amazing.

Wonder In The Rocks.
Goulding’s were great! Dirt pads, many pull through sites. Awesome setting amid towering rocks. Hiking trails around the campground.
The store was well stocked, the staff was friendly. The indoor pool was welcome as the afternoon heat mounted. Bathrooms were clean. There are shower and washing facilities at the store, there is a night shower facility after nine pm.
There is easy access to Goulding’s Lodge and Restaurant.
Monument Valley is a few miles away, and not too far to Valley of The Gods.
We will visit again, but not in the summer.

Everything You Need
Great resort - hookups, fire pits, showers, bathrooms, shops, gas, restaurants, and a shuttle service. Tours into the monuments as well. Pricey, for sure, but beautiful.

Very nice rv park but spaces very cramped. Great views and nice hiking trails out of the park. Didn't use any amenities so can't speak on that. Site I used was fairly level. Bit expensive but so is everything in the Navajo Nation. Comes with the territory. Would probably stay here again.

Great Views but Pricey & Unlevel Lots
Views are beautiful but sites are poorly laid out. Lots are not level so we just had to get it as vlose as we could. Gravel appears to have been used in site but has since been covered with lots of red dirt so everything gets dirty. For expensive cost of sites you'd think pads would he level concrete pads. Sewer location is way in the back so you need a long hose. most RVs were like us and were unable to get RV

Stayed in mid-March 2017. Great location. Great views. Nice, clean place. Paid $62 for full hookups with cable. Kinda expensive but hey....when you're the only game in town... There is an RV park inside Monument Valley itself next to the visitor center WITH ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VIEWS but it is dry camping. They have nice bathrooms, showers and a place to fill your RV with water but that's it. Still, camping with that view would be worth it. They charge $40 a night.

Nice Location But Too Expensive
The only positives are that this is a beautiful location and the gift shop and indoor pool are very nice, but it is by far the most expensive park we have stayed at. Wifi did not work at all. Laundry is $3 per load. It is not practical to have open/closed times for amenities or have access for showers through the gift store (the pool is on the opposite side of the store) and then be reminded by staff to dress appropriately to pass through the store. Showers are too small and drainage is all wrong, so you have to wade through pools of water to step into and out of most of the showers. Feeling a bit ripped off to say the least.

Has A View But You Pay For It
Nice place but lots are small, some are too small. We were in a space that the slides almost hit the water riser and a tree. Walk out the door and make a left or you ran into the tree. Indoor pool was nice. Prices for everything was high even the spaces.
Stayed here one night and felt that the price really should have been for two.
Restrooms and laundry were clean. No designated pet area.
All in all not bad but you pay the price.
