Arrowhead Campground

7 sites · RVs, Tents5 acres · San Juan
Greetings! Welcome to Arrowhead Campground! Arrowhead Campground is roughly 5 acres of land, sitting right in Monument Valley, Utah. Come stay with us to experience one of the most amazing views in the world! You'll get to experience a full 360 degree view of all the towering red sandstone buttes and mesas. This is great for capturing the best views in the area. You'll experience breathtaking sunsets and sunrises right from your campsite. Great for pictures and photoshoots. The campground offers one of the largest shade structures in the area, with durable white picnic tables. We do allow campfires, so there is a fire-pit for that. The campground is only 2 1/2 miles away from the tribal park and 1 1/4 miles from the nearest highway. It's tucked away and secluded from noise and light pollution. The stars at night are bright and shinny, so you can pitch your tent right underneath them. With that said, Arrowhead Campground will be one of the best campgrounds you'll ever stay at. If you have any other questions feel free to message me with any of your questions. Note: This is a dry campsite. Although, we do offer potable water to fill any water containers up to 10 gallons.

No need to reserve ahead of time! (This does NOT include High Demand nights such as the upcoming Eclipse) Camp spots are not marked but are obvious, choose site when you arrive, refer to map. Please respect No Trespassing signs! Two (2) miles north of Mexican Hat, UT on Hwy 163, turn East, find your spot! Bigger Rigs: Keep to the right at the 'Y' as the road to the San Juan River is steep and a little bumpy! Next to the Bears Ears National Monument, between Valley of the Gods and Monument Valley along the San Juan River is Mexican Hat where you can camp on private this is NOT on the Navajo Reservation, alcohol is allowed. So many things to see! Goosenecks State Park, Natural Bridges, Moki Dugway, Cedar Mesa! Camp on this private estate that was founded in the 1890's by gold and oil prospectors and where John Wayne later crossed the river in several western movies! The night skies are unbeatable as is the quiet solitude that is sadly disappearing in other areas. Mexican Hat Rock and this portion of the San Juan River are accessible only through this estate that is open for your enjoyment, however, if you wish to camp we now ask for a small fee so we can keep it clean, maintain roads and continue our conservation efforts so all can enjoy it forever!

Respect your fellow campers and stay on obvious trails and roads, do know that part of this property is marked as 'No Trespassing', please respect signage.

Dog-friendly camping in Monument Valley guide

Situated on the Navajo Nation on the Arizona-Utah border, Monument Valley is a vast scenic area known for its ochre-hued rock formations that jut out majestically from the Colorado Plateau. It has been a popular area for filming Western films since the time of John Wayne. Today,  the biggest draw is the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, which features a 17-mile-long loop road that will bring you close to some of the valley's most spectacular buttes. The valley is also an exceptional spot for stargazing, and its openness and its lack of artificial light make it ideal for viewing the night sky on a camping trip.

Where to Go

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Spread out over 1.87 million acres in southern Utah, this gargantuan national monument is an amazing place for scenic drives and hikes, provided you're prepared for dry temperatures and, in places, rugged road conditions. Here you'll find beautiful rock formations and slot canyons galore, plus plenty of camping options, most of which are located along Scenic Byway 12.

Elsewhere in the Navajo Nation

You'll find plenty to see and experience in the surrounding Navajo Nation, from the Petrified National Forest to the Painted Desert. Less than a two-hour drive will take you to the Four Corners Monument, which marks the point where Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah converge.

The Grand Canyon

Undoubtedly the best-known national park in the Southwest, this massive canyon is on plenty of traveler's bucket lists, and for good reason: it's one of the world's largest canyons on earth and features tons of things to do, from hiking and backpacking to gazing down at millions of years of geological history from some of the many viewpoints around the park. It’s also a great place to camp, but you’ll likely need to reserve your campsite well in advance.

When to Go

Monument Valley is at its most pleasant in spring and fall, when the weather is pleasantly warm. Summer temperatures can get excruciatingly hot, and the summer vacation crowds mean that camping and accommodation options in the area are more limited. Moreover, the likelihood of rain is at its highest in the summer, particularly in July and August. Many people prefer to avoid coming in the winter, as the temperatures can drop quite a bit.
