    Monument Valley KOA is a solid spot for those looking to camp near the iconic Monument Valley in Utah. This campground is open all year and offers a mix of tent, RV, and glamping accommodations. It's a smaller campground with 56 sites, including 50-amp and 30-amp pull-thru and back-in options, all equipped with water and electricity.

    The sites are gravel and level, making setup straightforward, though don't expect much privacy between them. The bathrooms and showers are consistently praised for their cleanliness, and there's hot water with good pressure. If you're traveling with pets, there's a fenced dog run, though be cautious if you have a smaller dog as they might slip under the gate.

    For families, there's a playground, although it might be better suited for older kids. Laundry facilities are available, and while they claim to be open 24/7, you'll need to get your last load in by 7 pm. The campground also has a store open from 8 am to 8 pm, and you can book horse tours directly from the site.

    One of the standout features of this KOA is its proximity to Monument Valley. Many visitors appreciate the convenience of being picked up for tours right from the campground. The views are spectacular, especially at sunrise and sunset, and the night sky is something to behold.

    While some campers find the rates a bit steep, the location and amenities often make it worth the price. If you're looking for a clean, friendly place to stay with easy access to Monument Valley, this KOA is a great choice. Just be prepared for the wind if you're tent camping and bring something to secure your tent.
