2 Reviews of Square Tower Ruins - Hovenweep National Monument
Great little campground!

Many roads into area, all narrow, winding and potholed. Arrive well before dark as roads are also full of livestock. Clean bathroom but no showers. Lovely views all around. Dark sky activities in summer. Shelters and fire rings at all spots as well as nice tent pads. Some rv only spots. Water inside visitor center, pump out front didn't work. Free admission to Monument, $15 bucks to camp. Improvements to water and infrastructure in progress. Fees for admission coming in May 2019.

Middle of nowhere but worth it!

31 sites - arrived at 1 pm at the end of May and had many empty sites to choose from. The campground is only about 1/3 full at almost 6 pm. If you want a shower, this campground is not for you but I don't base my rating on shower availability. There is potable water, a clean bathroom with flush toilets, level campsites and beautiful views. That's all I need! After all, it's camping.

Several sites are reserved for RVs. We took one for our teardrop but could have used one of the sites with a tent pad. A campervan or small trailer could pull in the parking area for some of the tent sites. Tent pads are mostly dirt with a little bit of crushed rock.

This is a Dark Sky Park but there are lots of those in Utah.
