Worst campsite in our month long trip. Our site was not even on their map, had dog waste in it, BBQ was filthy. We walked the entire camp area, sites are mostly dirt sprinkled with gravel and on a slope. It was very crowded with most sites having RV's that barely fit. Gift shop, laundry room and pool area were clean and attractive. Beautiful area to explore but would not stay here again. Good Sam needs to reevaluate their rating.
Beautiful setting. Beautiful views. Overall rating of 4 because site was not completely level and we were told not to leave our stuff out. The office had bars on the windows so that was our first clue. No incidents during our stay though. Park is medium size. Wifi was ok. Restrooms clean but not enough for the size of the park which includes large tenting area. The men's stall had no lock. Check-in staff was friendly enough. Would stay here again.
Stayed September in 35' class A with toad. Short, not too level pull through. Had to disconnect to fit in space. Tight park. It is located in a beautiful valley a short drive to monument valley. Park is tidy and fairly quiet. Did not use any of the facilities, but it appears you could stay for a few days and have enough to keep you busy.
No pet area. Some of us travel by motorhome specifically to be able to take our pets with us. The was NO area where you could take your dog to use the bathroom.
Look up at night. It's amazing.
We stayed 3 nights and the view was awesome. We didn't use the restroom facilities. Staff very helpful. We had a tree branch interfering with our awning and they came and removed it. The park is located in a canyon with walking trails that were easy to walk. We would stay here again.
There aren’t a lot of choices for RV parks in Monument Valley. There’s a pitiful looking KOA, an RV park inside Monument Valley and Goulding’s. Goulding’s has a long history in Monument Valley with an extensive collection of facilities: lodge, restaurant, gift shop, grocery, gas station, casitas and the RV park. The park is in a lovely location, however, it is on a fairly steep hill. It seems that when an RV park is located on a steep grade they almost never get the site pads level. That’s the case here. Getting level is a bit challenging. The driveways are asphalt and the site pads are gravel and dirt. We had a pull-thru with full hookups, 50 amp electric, a picnic table, fire pit and a nice view. There is a cable TV connection but we didn’t use it and there’s free WiFi but we found it to be suboptimal. We were not able to get Verizon 4G data service here. If you are interested in a tour of Monument Valley, Goulding’s has tours that pick up at the campground. We heard from others that their pricing is quite good compared to other options. We took the early morning Deluxe tour and enjoyed it. We paid $56.83 per night with Good Sam discount.
Sites were gravel and level. Big rigs had to work a bit to get into their spaces which were a little tight for them. Restrooms and showers were clean but worn. Sites do have fire rings and cable worked fine. Site staff were friendly and helpful and there are several things to see in the area. Grocery store nearby is the only place for supplies and food for 30 miles.
This was our destination for our trip out West, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay 3 nights at. This area is a natural wonder, so many beautiful things to see both far and near. We hiked around the campground and were surprised to see a natural arch on the trails. Recommending taking a guided tour into the monuments to see the different mesas up close. We did the sunrise tour & our guide gave us a great experience. Nothing like seeing the sun peeking up from behind the mittens. Anyway,great rv park to stay at in this area. All positive reviews on here are true. The bad one I don't understand.
Great location close to grocery shopping, local attractions. Large park with lots of sites. Store/Office is open from 7-6, but usually closed by 5 or 530. Showers are located in store/office, so there is no access between 6 PM and 7 AM.
The area is beautiful. The camp ground is crowded very busy. Very open, wish there were more trees. To many tents mixed in with RV's. They are allowed in after hours so they are loud, have lots of lights shinning. Maybe bad time of year for us.
Very nice RV park, all paved, no grass with red sand between parking areas. No many choices for quality camping in this area and the price reflects the lack of competition but does indicate quality. If you get bad wind coming through this narrow pass you will get dusted! Very quite location. Would stay here again.
Great views of Monument Valley and the short hike up to the "Hidden Arch" is worth while! The pool was a bit over chlorinated.
The trip to Monument Valley was disappointing! The roads in Monument Valley are in serious need of repair and maintenance!!!!!!!!!!!!
Outstanding RV park. Best we've stayed at since leaving Pa. Great pull through site size. Had room for our 32' class A & tow car. Tree & picnic table at every site. Great view. We were there for 3 nights. Wish we could have stayed longer! Easy to find, lots of signs. Very friendly staff. Tours available with native Navajo guides to explore the splendor of Monument Valley. No grass for the dog but she found soft dirt all around the camp. We highly recommend Goulding's Monument Valley & RV Park! Would stay here again in a heart beat!
Bathroom key cards don't work. Toilets don't flush. Toilet lid slid off toilet when I sat on it and I am not over weight. Dogs barked each night. Bugs in all ceiling lights. We could find nothing but fried food.
I gave this 5 stars for appeal because the location is incredible. Gorgeous! Breathtaking! The campground is clean; sites are adequate sized for a class A towing. We received a call in the afternoon saying if we got there late there'd be someone to show us around so not to worry. We thought that was very nice. We arrived at around 3 PM. Check in was simple. Didn't use any facilities, but the store at check in was lovely - well supplied plus assorted souvenirs. Internet didn't work well and there's no specific place to walk dogs; cable was fine. We'd go back here in the blink of an eye. The view from the campground - day and night (that night sky around the monuments!) - was wonderful and Monument Valley is just a short drive away.
Let me start by saying the pictures they have on the website aren't doing the place justice! WOW. When I called and made reservations the ladies I spoke with were somewhat, abrupt. I am very pleased to say we met no one like that!!
- IT'S MONUMENT VALLEY!!!!!! Wow!!
- The RV park is nestled back up in a canyon so pulling in I was somewhat concerned. I had ideas of watching the morning sun coming up over Monument Valley, etc. Don't be concerned. It was spectacular.
- The restroom / showers were very clean, and numerous. Might have been the best on this 5,000 mile trip.
- Indoor swimming pool was nice. Kids were loving it.
- There were many employees taking care of business and they were all friendly.
- We ate at the Motel restaurant and it was very good. Also have picture windows with a nice view into Monument Valley.
The Not so Good...
- Kinda pricey, $80 a night.
Final Thoughts...$80 a night?! PHAW!!! That's a pittance! This place is awesome!
Superb location, wonderful people, and the sites are kept up extremely well. The bathrooms/showers are some of the cleanest I have come across in our travels. If the Wifi was a little better, it would be the perfect place to stay a while. We hope to visit again!
