Cottonwood Campground
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2021

It's a pit!

Its the only campground anywhere near Canyon de Chelly. Sites are not reservable. We arrived at about 3:30pm on Fri and it was about half-full. Problem was that half of the sites were blocked off (Covid?). We finally found a site in full sun (lots of shady ones were there but blocked off). 90+ degrees today... OK, we have a generator. We back into the site and get out to get settled and the first thing we see is a huge, active ant hill by the back trailer tire (had to go buy spray so they didn't get in the trailer). All of the "greenery" around the site was cockleburr plants. Of course the burrs ended up in our shoes and socks and therefore in the trailer. It's quite a sketchy area around the campground so we didn't leave anything out. They only take cash payment you put in an envelope in a drop-box. On a good note, it is very close access to Canyon de Chelly.
