Best boondocking site ever. I feel comfortable gushing about this spot since it's in the middle of nowhere and has plenty of spots available. The scenery is epic and unlike Monument Valley, you can camp here. As others have said, enter from 163 unless you're in a very small rig. We camped about 3.5 miles off of 163 in our 32 foot c... more

“Great boondocking spot”

Reviewed May 08, 2019

We stayed in valley of the Gods the last week of April 2019. We have 35 ft Class A and stayed about one mile in from the east entrance. We put the front wheels slightly into a small swale to be able to level front to back. The road was fairly quiet during the day and it was very quiet at night. I got a chance to fly my drone and go... more

We stayed at the far north end near the castle monument. Sunrise and sunset were spectacular and there's decent hiking in the area. We used it as a base for Cedar Mesa day hikes. There's road traffic during the day but was very quiet at night.

“Stunning! Awesome place to boondock.”

Camped 10/19/18-10/20/18 (Fri & Sat). We entered from the east (Hwy 163), which seemed an easier way in and more scenic than the west entrance. We drove the whole loop road, and the west end part of the road was in not as good as shape, and had dips and hills. Brown "Valley of the Gods" signs on the main highways at each end of the ... more

Stayed here 9/30/18. The road in off of hwy 163 is steep. Then you hit a rough wash area. Then up/down some hills. Road was pretty rough and washboard. Found a nice site from a previous poster a couple miles in. Very peaceful and the views are amazing. But after sitting there for a while, the wind was blowing the red dirt all over and ... more
