The silence in this campground, even though full on a Saturday night, is absolutely impressive. A private camper with a telescope the size of a whiskey barrel tells everyone that while he’s not an official park representative, he’d be happy to let any and everyone look at the stars with him tonight. A meteor shower fails to show up unt... more

“Quiet little campground close to ruins”

Reviewed Mar 09, 2018

We stayed in this campground in February and had the place mostly to ourselves. We didn't have reservations, so we stopped at the ranger station on the way in. The rangers were helpful and provided information about the camping and the local hikes. We stayed in an RV only site which was nice and flat. There is no electric or wa... more

This was part of our grand before Christmas 2017 adventure! I am a planner and had our dates and places to see down to the minute. All my planning went out the window when we rolled into the Hovenweep Campground! We immediately made a decision to stay an extra night and what a good decision it was! The campground is small, beautifu... more

“Unpolluted night sky views, canon hiking and indigenous culture all in one spot”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

The campground was very nice, staff and guest were all very respectful. Pets are allowed but must be leashed and cleaned up after. All sites are dry camping, there is water with a 5 gallon limit at the visitor center before you get the campground. Bathrooms were clean with flushing toilets. Trails were well marked and documented both o... more

After reading other reviews, we were very excited to stay at Hovenweep, and it did not disappoint. The sites, bathrooms, and park are very clean and well-maintained. The drive in was a bit rough, but the park was worth it. After our dinner, we sat out in our camp chairs and stargazed for over an hour. We slept with all our camper w... more

Neat little campground tucked into the trees hear the Puebloan ruins. Paved road. As other reviewers stated, very clean bathrooms, sites with pads for tents and shaded picnic tables. First-come-first-served. Small road, so no big RV's. Trailheads directly from campground to explore the ruins. Unfortunately, it was raining and blow... more

What a gem of a park, and what a fantastic campground! Clean, campsites nicely spaced (each with a shaded picnic table, many with FLAT tent pads), a few spaces just for RVs (but as another reviewer said, only small RVs, not big ones, will fit at this campground) modern flush toilets... trails from each campsite to the toilets so no ... more

Love this small campground! Great sites, each unique and with its own "Fred and Wilma Flintstone" ramada. Small rigs will fit nicely, behemoths will not. Four sites are pull in, 30 feet max. Others are parking roadside, more suited for tent campers. Great 2 bar Verizon LTE in this very remote location. Flush toilets in the restr... more

“Hovenweep is a Dark Sky Park!”

Reviewed Aug 13, 2015

Overall Rating

We're currently in Hovenweep dry camping near some amazing ruins, incredible views, and a truly "dark sky" park. Our trip to Hovenweep this year was specifically to come and photograph the Perseid Meteor Shower. We've camped here many times before, and it's worth a visit. There are only 6 RV sites available here. It's first come,... more
