  • Can't beat this place. "First come, first serve", but the only price is what you can donate! Great view of the sunset from the "sunset view" campground. The walking trails were good and allowed good views of the Canyon for picture taking. Running water is a plus, and I don't know about the rv parking, but tent sites are normally good for 2-4 man tents, but you can find bigger sites if you look. No campfires, strictly charcoal.
  • Stunning. Sandal trail behind the visitor center is an easy, paved walk leading to an overlook of the betatakin cliff dwelling. About 1 mile. Beautiful views, amazing history. Watch for the dinosaur footprint near the start of the trail.
  • A fun place to spend the day. There aren't vey many hikes as none of them are very long. But the hikes they do have are worth it
  • I enjoyed this monument over all, and it's very educational but I wish you could get a little closer to the actual site. I understand intellectually that the area must be protected, but the only way to see anything is to take an easy walk down to the edge of the cliff and look at it through a couple of telescopes. So, yeah, it was so so. It would be so much better if they would extend the hike down into the canyon so you can get a better view. These photos are taken from the vista on the edge of the canyon about a half a mile from the site. That's as close as they let you get.
  • Beautiful views and nice sites. Good stopover place. Visit the kayenta Navajo petroleum store! Near monument valley and free! Flush toilets and camper sink.
