You can be excused if the pace of your heart picks up as you read the glowing reviews below, and with good reason. We decided to follow the lead of the Meandering Life folks in the review below and had Onstar direct us to the coordinates they were gracious enough to leave in their review. There was no rain so reaching the site on a dir... more

We stayed at GPS: 37.2641190,-109.8119080 This is a good boondocking site. We stayed in late April 2018. Make sure you go down Hwy 138 through Mexican Hat and turn on Valley of the Gods road. There is a small wash right after you turn, but when we were there it was almost dry and no problem at all for our 30 ft travel trailer. T... more

Unbelievable views. For those who love the outdoors, this is a bucket list place. We planned to stay a bit longer, but it started to rain & this is one of those places where the 27ft RV doesn't mix well with that [road can become impassible when wet]. We drove the whole loop...the further in, the better views...you can camp right ... more

So much open space and incredible views!! There are numerous spaces and most are relatively level. You are in the middle of nowhere but there is plenty of hiking, biking, and general exploring to do! The winds can get intense so keep an eye on the weather while you are visiting. We watched a few tents take off in the gusts while ... more

Reviewed Apr 14, 2018

One of the favorite camp sites during a 2 wk, 1900 mile trip across southern UT. This is BLM land and therefore, no fees or facilities. The gravel road winds among some absolutely amazing rock formations with several level areas spaced far apart near the road designated for camping. Remote and quiet and stunningly beautiful.

“Wow!”

Reviewed Apr 05, 2018

Overall Rating

This was an amazing place to camp and just drive through. We camped about halfway along the road next to a small ravine. We chose this spot because we still had reception but we weren’t close to the entrance. We took several trips just driving the 17 mile-long road to see it at different times of the day. Breathtaking!

“Great spot, definitely recommend it for smaller cars/vans. ”

I came in from the 261 side, not the 163 side others suggested. Looks like the east (163) side is closer to the actual rock buttes/towers. Had a great view overlooking the valley from the west side though, and 2 bars of VZW LTE and 3 bars of US Cellular/TMobile 3G. When I come back I’ll try the west side. The road in from 261 goe... more

Easy access (although entry road might be tough with a bigger rig if wet), lots of spots & beautiful views! Pretty much as good as it gets. Our dogs loved the space to roam as well. There is a bit of traffic on road running through Valley of the Gods, but it didn’t bother us too much. No Verizon service from our experience, bu... more

“Epic beauty. ”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

It was beautiful. Seriously out of nowhere beauty and you get to see the sunrise, the sunset and even the Milky Way. I have a Class C motor home and tow a small versa note- the road was pretty good for a dirt road- but up until 2 miles, after that, it would be iffy for rigs like mine. Be sure to enter on the east side of 163. :):) enjoy!!
