We were traveling US60 to Canyon De Chelly. We stop at Datil Well for overnight. Wow--what a gem this was. Only $2.50 per night(senior) BLM. This was a clean campground with vault toilets , there were very clean. We hiked 2 miles to overlook with scenic views passing pine woodland with good vistas and wildlife. We have AT&T phone ... more

“Hidden gem!!!”

Reviewed Jul 18, 2016

Overall Rating

This is an absolute hidden gem. 1st off I was lucky enough to score a reservation on a Wednesday afternoon for a sat and sun night stay. 2nd off the campsite was all that AND MORE. The vault toilet was impeccable and we had 3 charcoal grills to choose from, 1 that had a side table for serving. The hosts came by each afternoon to colle... more

“Magical little campground”

Reviewed Feb 10, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here on our visit to the Very Large Array (awesome!). Not much else around so very pleased to have a cheap, cozy BLM campground all to ourselves. Bathrooms were very clean. No hook ups. Not much in the way of supplies etc around though there is a gas station / diner about five miles away (gotta catch them when they are open).... more

“Great One Night Stop”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2015

Overall Rating

Datil Well is a nice little campground. The campsites varied in shape, size and level. With ours, we only needed to go up on one block and were able to stay hitched up and were completely level.

With a booster we were able to get cell service up to 2 bars of 3G, but it wasn't anything I'd want to use for a week.

“Quiet, Remote Campground”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2015

Overall Rating

This campground is quiet and peaceful. Only 2 other campers here and there was about 4 miles of hiking trails that were great for hiking with a dog. Only 3G Verizon service but it suited my needs. NOTE: due to limited financing, the drinking water is turned off. Not sure if they are going to put it on this spring/summer or not, bu... more

“Isolated New Mexican beauty”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2015

Overall Rating

Datil Well was the the very first campsite I stayed in as I began my full timing journey. Not a bad way to start off. I stayed here one night on the way from Phoenix to Albuquerque. Small (22 sites) but great setting. Site 21 was very isolated from the other sites. Access is down a short dirt road and the entire campground was di... more
