“Views and isolation”

Overall Rating

It is out in the middle of nowhere but that is also what’s appealing. We stayed right under the hat so we had awesome views all around. Great stars. Little traffic but no big deal. Road was well maintained. Lots of room for large rigs.

“The only decent AT&T service we could find in the Mexican Hat/Monument Valley/Bluff area...”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2018

Overall Rating

Shards of glass pepper a few chunks of the landscape and my kids find four bullet casings, but otherwise this patch of red rock and sand is pristine for a free for all camping area. We’ve come to meet up with new friends met via the Instagram, and aside from our two rigs and a few jeeps climbing the dirt mounds, no one else bothers camping. We both have small vehicles—a van and a truck camper—and we climb a high clearance hill to get our spot. Otherwise, there’s a small clearing perfect for a Class A or two if they like to snuggle.

The stars go brilliant and highway traffic disappears as nightfall covers us all. A drive ‘round the Valley of the Gods proves that this Mexican Hat is just one of an impressive collections of sentries made of red sandstone that still tower surreal over this beautiful corner of welcome to Utah.

Look south to see a large slab of what appears to be grey asphalt. There’s a bunch of spent uranium in there, hence the name here on Campendium.
