About Natural Bridges Campground

Three majestic natural bridges invite you to ponder the power of water in a landscape usually defined by its absence. View them from an overlook, or hit the trails and experience their grandeur from below. Declared a National Monument in 1908, the bridges are named "Kachina," "Owachomo" and "Sipapu" in honor of the Native Americans that once made this area their home.

Great but small and compact

This campground does not take reservations, and is first come first serve. We arrived to the campground being full. It looked clean and well maintained. The pit toilet bathrooms were clean as well. We ended up camping down the road on an amazing primitive site, so don’t discount that as an option as well. The visitor center also has outdoor access heated bathrooms which helped relieve the stress of cold camping nights. Such a lovely park and would definitely recommend it! We saw stars for miles!

small, great and the overflow is even better

this is a small campground, and it is first come first serve … so plan accordingly. This is a hidden gem buried and missed among the big five … and it sits right in between the absurd contest over the designated National Monuments. The three bridges are worth the time an energy to hike into. The NPS provides a really interesting star gazing session at night. If you have a decent high clearance vehicle, the overflow area in Big Ears NM are wonderful.

13 sites and all are first-come, first-served. Better get there early!

We were shut out at 1 pm. No problem! There is plenty of dispersed camping on Deer Flat and Bears Ears roads just outside the park. So silent at night!

If you want a site at the campground, be there around 8:30 am (in May). We got there at 9:30 am and snagged one of two remaining sites. A sign said there were 6 at 8:30 am. Get your water at the Visitors' Center. If you don't like pit toilets, you can walk a half mile to the Visitors' Center.

Woke up in the middle of the night to a perfectly framed Big Dipper in the window of our teardrop on site 7. (I think that was the number.)
