From U.S. Highway 550 (north of Nageezi), follow the signs that say Chaco Canyon National Monument Park (County Road 7900). From County Road 7900 and County Road 7950 (turn right on 7950). After 3 miles, at the end of pavement, you will see a sign that says "Dry Camp", with a long dirt driveway. Our campground is 13 miles before the hazardous road to Chaco Canyon. We like to say the we are "The Gateway to Chaco Canyon". Save the wear and tear on your trailers, camp with us! Horse-Thief Campground is an upcoming camp; located on 5 acres of land and more, for campers to enjoy. In a quiet; serene, beautiful landscape area of the Dine Nation. With beautiful sunrise; sunsets and night sky is out of this world. There are trails in which visitors may walk or bike, as well as a Look Out Point. Horse-Thief is currently a Dry Camp with no Electricity or running water however generators are welcome. There is one portable restroom. We look forward to Meeting and Greeting you! We think you will enjoy your stay with us, and hope you give us a great review!Visitors/campers can expect to be in a: quiet; serene area of the Navajo/Dine' Nation, with views of beautiful landscapes. They will also encounter; breathtaking sunrises, gorgeous sunsets, and amazing glittering stars. If they get lucky, views of wild horses will be encountered. Nearby are trails that can be utilized for walking or biking, as well as a look out point. We are a dry camp; so whatever campers haul in they need to haul out.

So grateful
It was very safe while being in Nature. It was so wonderful having a safe space for our pups to run around, explore, and have fun! The stars were magnificent. We were driving through and it was already so late. We really appreciate Wayne for allowing us to stay within an hour's notice. Beyond thankful and definitely pinning so we can come back in the future!

The owners were very nice, but the campsite is extremely primitive. Seemed a little expensive for $40 a night

Be part of a growing camp.
The land is in a special spot with views looking down into a little valley, the wild horses cross the area; there is a paint that is really beautiful. It was refreshing to be in a camp where the dogs could run off leash and be so happy. There was a pretty big group when I was there for the solar eclipse October 14th and everyone was chill. If you are lucky you might get a chance to Talk with Wayne (he's a busy man) about Dine' traditions, he is very well versed in the traditional teachings.

Wayne is super nice and an interesting person. Campground is basic Dry camp with single Porta-potty . Beautiful scenery, wild horses and breath taking night sky views make this a unique experience. 20 miles from chaco canyon, it is closest campground outside the park. Both roads to chaco are very rough and get worse after rain.

Best stargazing ever!
This was the perfect place for us to stay near to Chaco. We arrived after dark and Wayne was there to greet us and answer all of our questions. We felt like we were on top of the world with the best stargazing ever! We will definitely stay here again!

Horrible campground for Tent camper
BEWARE if you are a tent camper. I booked Horse-Thief Campground for 1 night with 6 Adults, 2 Vehicles, starting October 14, 2023 on August 16th. Upon arrival, informed that HipCamp did not charge accurately, owner Wayne insisted on additional $10 payment. Our tents were not allowed to be set up on dirt, only available for camper trailers parking. Ground for tents was uncleared scrub with cactus & thorns which tore tents. We left campground and found a motel.
