Unfortunately, the old Mitten View campground has been closed and a new hotel is in it's place. However, the Navajo Parks and recreation has a primitive first come first served campground just north of the visitor center. This campground is scheduled to be closed until June of 2013

Just east of the campground is the most photographed of the formations in Monument Valley, West Mitten Butte, East Mitten Butte and Merrick Butte. Mitten View Campground is just over a mile south of the Utah border.

You can take a 17 mile self guided tour in your car (make sure you have good shocks) or you can go on a guided four-wheeled drive tour. Check for availability at the visitors center. A 2 hour jeep tour runs about $20 per person.

The best time to camp at Mitten View is during a new moon. The stars seems to rule the night sky, and you may never have the chance to see so many stars as you can here.

Just across the border in Utah is Goulding's Lodge, a 1920's trading post. Nice accomodations are available as well as a gas station, general store and a restaurant. There is a small restaurant at the visitor center also.
