Visiting Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

Straddling the Utah-Arizona border is the remarkable Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. You may have seen the unique mitten-shaped butte formations on a Western movie but there is nothing quite as amazing as seeing the formations up close looming in front of you! This region is comprised of a rich, red sandy landscape dotted with rock formations protruding up from the ground, carved by years of erosion into unique shapes and groupings. The area is a great place to visit and experience fantastic photo opportunities and stunning scenery. With so much to see and do in the area, many visitors look for camping opportunities nearby and the Monument Valley KOA campground is just a few short miles from the entrance to the park. Tent and RV campers will find a great base to set up for an overnight visit or a longer stay while venturing into the surrounding areas of Utah and Arizona.

Experiencing Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Utah-Arizona border

To experience Monument Valley, you will take the scenic 17-mile Valley Drive, a primitive and bumpy dirt road that weaves around the formations and viewpoints. It takes about two hours to travel the route with stops along the way. Many people take their own vehicle and enjoy admiring the landscape and taking photos at their leisure. Others prefer to leave the driving to someone else, and there are Navajo-guided tour companies that will take you around the park and into backcountry areas such as Ear of the Wind and Tear Drop Arch that are off-limits to those traveling on their own. Several companies also offer horseback tours for a unique way to experience these impressive formations. There are also amazing viewpoints right at the visitor’s center!

Camping near Monument Valley At The Monument Valley KOA Journey

Towering red pillars of sandstone give this valley its name and create the striking setting for this new KOA. It's a bold, broad landscape, where you'll be awestruck by sunrises and sunsets right from your full-hookup RV Site or Tent Site. When the skies darken, your hosts know to keep the lights low and focused downward to protect what is one of America's most brilliant stargazing areas. Step outside to experience a night sky like few have seen, awash in sparkling stars. A scenic drive will lead you to inspiring views, made famous by Hollywood movies filmed in the area over the years. For deeper insights into the local Navajo culture and Anasazi heritage, take a half- or full-day jeep tour with a Navajo guide. Local guided photography tours are available too. More grand landscapes await in every direction, including the Grand Canyon, Arches and Zion national parks and archeological treasures like Hovenweep National Monument.
