Gorgeous site under the hat and along the river

We were chased out of Valley of the Gods by a massive dust storm and came here, finding a nice spot along the San Juan River and right below the hat. Simple, no amenities dispersed camping but the road was in reasonably good shape, even after a light rain. Thanks to the dust storm we were treated to a tremendous sunset!

Depends when you go, but amazing!

I did a 5-day river rafting trip with a youth group through the San Juan. We camped on the plateau above the river and then spent each following night on the river bank. Summer time is beat since the cool water helps balance out the burning heat. However, it can also get really busy with other rafting groups. We never struggled to find camp sites but sometimes we had to wait to go through rapids or clear space so other groups could overtake us. All in all it was amazing and an awesome experience.

Not too shabby

We camped here overnight. A hummingbird bird came and said hello during breakfast. That’s pretty much the only other living thing I saw in this area. It’s beautiful at night too. Check it!

Amazing views w/ tons of camping

A beautiful 17 mile loop through some gorgeous Utah-esque land. There were tons of open spots the weekend before Memorial Day. Not much shade so come prepared. Good for large campers, although the road is a bit rocky. Definitely passable with a large camper or a small sedan, though. A bit of phone service, enough to send a text or make a call.

Great location, not much of a camping experience

Monument Valley is definitely off the beaten path.  There are very few places to camp here.  What makes Goulding a good choice is the location.  It’s within a few minutes drive of Monument Valley. The camping spots are really just a parking space, but the campground does provide showers, laundry, general store, restaurant, museum and interesting history.  Take the time to visit the local museum.  Fun to learn about the films made here.  We’ve camped here several times, but never hang out at the campground.  We mainly use it as a jumping point to explore all the other things this area has to offer.  Definitely take a Jeep tour.  We did a tour that included an dinner and Indian ceremony. It was an incredible experience!

The closest to Mars I'll get.

This was night four of our Grand Canyon Trip, and our only cloudy, starless night. I have heard such good things about the view at night, even so, it was one of our favorites. We put a speaker in a nearby bush we dubbed the "bluetooth bush" and piped in some native flute music. I'm here to tell you, there's nothing I recommend more. If the sweet serenity of the pure quiet doesn't do it for you, then get those old disembodied melodies going. There are no bathrooms or trash, so pack-in, pack-out. 

Our approach.

Must visit

The views are spectacular. No amenities

Appropriately named

Just like the name says, there are some amazing views from this campground. They have lots of options, tent camping, RV spots, and cabins. My family stayed in one of the cabins on the cliff on our way up into Utah. The views were beautiful and unreal. They were a little pricy, but I’d say it was worth it for the scenery. 

There are some really cool hikes in the area too. Definitely check out Goulding arch and wildcat trail. The slot canyons in the area are pretty cool to see. Also, there’s a lot of cool Native American history to learn about in the area. This was an awesome place to hang around in for a couple of days.

River View

We stayed in site 8 and literally could have gone for a swim from our site. The sites are too close together for my liking, but we were the only ones at the campground. The pit toilets were clean (and not smelly)..The sites all had fire pit/grate, picnic table and flat spot for a tent or RV parking. The highway noise was a bit annoying, but not unbearable.

The sunrise over the river was incredible!
