  • The cliff with these petroglyphs is off the main road and along a sandy, quite rough, track. However, when you do reach them they are utterly amazing works of art, and we spent some considerable time ...  more »
  • We made an unplanned stop at Sand Island to see the petroglyphs. There is a short 0.5 mile trail and the last 3/4 of the trail is almost continuous with petroglyphs. Most of the petroglyphs were easy ...  more »
  • Our Navajo guide from Monument Valley suggested we stop here on our way out and we are so glad we did. I'm not sure that I've seen this many petroglyphs in one spot! There is a nice sign at the turn o...  more »

  • This primitive BLM campsite is hidden below from the highway. You can hear some traffic and at night, you can see headlights from Highway 191. It only sits about 1/10 of the mile away from the road. However, since it is down below, it's surprisingly a decent campground with lots of cottonwood trees. There is a petroglyph wall adjacent to the campground. Each site has a very nice metal picnic table and fire ring. There are several vaulted toilets and running potable water spigots available. This is a great spot for base camping to visit the nearby attractions. I rated this a 4-star because the AT&T data service (No 4G and sometimes E+ or H) was not sufficient or reliable for my needs to work from the RV. If you're looking to work remotely, this may not be the place to work from since you are below the main road, and line of sight to AT&T tower may be hindered.
  • I think the mosquitos here have grown a massive resistance against any human efforts to fend them off. My theory is that they come from up north where the 60's nuclear test sites are.
  • Didn't sleep there but campground was neat and close to the river making it look like a nice place to stop for the night
  • Maybe it's better in winter but during monsoon time (June-August), mosquitos will eat you. I've never seen so many of them in one place (except in Brazil once) and they seem to be fire-resistant. Even repellants showed little effect.
  • Nice place to stay a day or so. Water! And big sites.
