    Navajo Monument Campground

    I was there June 12 and looked around. Another park ranger told me about this place and said check it out. It is 10 miles into the Monument with only one way in and out. It is designed for small RV's but tents are okay. There is plenty of nice red dust to set you tent up on. No showers or utilities but there are rest rooms. It was in the middle of the day and I was not ready to stop or I would have camped there. Oh yea it is free. There was only one RV camping there at the time.

    I believe there are 2 campgrounds in there, but I think only 1 open at this time. (?)

    Anyways, this gets you in there and they'll direct you to what's available

    Can you ride a motorcycle to the campground? I was at Monument valley once but wasn't sure if the road was too sandy for my Goldwing and camper.

    If you zoom right in on Satellite View, you'll see that the road is paved into Sunset View campground. The other campground (Canyon View) is down an unpaved road - https://www.nps.gov/nava/planyourvisit/maps.htm

    I was there in 2013 with my Goldwing towing a Leesurelite. I stayed in the paved part, but wouldn't have had a concern about the unpaved section which I walked through.

    It's a wonderful place. There's a short hike to some old dwellings, but I also did the long hike out to Keet Seel and back (bring water). Highly recommended if you're fit.

    Thanks. Nice photos!
    I'm planning on overnighting there this summer.
    Are those wild horses in your first photo?

    Yes, those are wild horses - at least in the sense that they are out there wandering loose. I imagine they belong to some of the Navajo folks. Saw them on the long hike to Keet Seel.
