Campground Review: Valley of The Gods, Nr Mexican Hat, Utah
Why we chose here: We wanted a scenic place to rest our heads for a few days. We had planned to visit Monument Valley from here but the weather meant we changed plans, left early and actually relocated to Monument Valley instead.
Location: This is some of the most scenic boondocking you will ever encounter. It was quite simply fantastic. It is remote and there was hardly anyone around when we were there. We would have stayed longer but the access road is sandy and bumpy and we heard was quite difficult in wet weather. As a major storm was looming we decided to relocate after just a few nights.
Sites: There are a lot of choices for extremely scenic spots along the length of the entire road. Unless you are in a van or something smaller you should approach from the east access where the road is wider and not so rutted and uneven. The western side gets a bit wild and twisty and is definitely not suitable for bigger rigs.
Groceries: Bring food with you. You are miles from anywhere.
Cell coverage / WiFi: We struggled with 3 bars of Verizon 3G and for some reason couldn't get AT&T, but I believe others had better luck than us.
Price paid: $0
Date of visit: Sept 2016
Would we visit again? Yes. The lack of internet would limit the length of our stay but it is hard to beat the scenery.
