Yeah I thought about that after I saw the Goulds post. That actually is a state park and I think there is an iron ranger where you are supposed to put in $10/night if I recall right. Stunning view tho, that rock is really sharp tho, like it has razor blades stuck into it. The only other place I recall like that was El Malpais NM down in NM. You can camp anywhere in the Valley of the Gods it is BLM land and I hear right at the cliff edge near the top of the Moki Dugway, but that would mean pulling your camper up that road.

We're going to be in the Flaming Gorge area for the two weeks (or so) in September 2020.

We also want to go to Page Az, Monument Valley, and Escalante NP,

I'm still trying to sort out the order of travel to hit these spots.

I'm thinking of heading south from Flaming Gorge, go through Moab, and drop south from there.

Hit Monument Valley, then Page, then Escalante. I would prefer to stay east of Salt Lake City and hit spots in Eastern Utah.

Any suggestions on Monument Valley, Page, or Escalante campgrounds
would be appreciated.

We love ancient peoples history.

Does anyone have input on boating on Lake Powell out of Page? We are considering renting a boat for a day trip, or just going on one of the tour boats, say to Rainbow Bridge... What say you.

Thanks in advance for your help. Stay safe!


From Flaming Gorge be sure to go By Dino NM (some great Pictographs there)- Two Great CG right on the Green River - We were there in July and the Grands loved them Both.

Moab is filled with things to see and do - we Never Miss doing the RT 128 drive along the Colorado River, awesome!

As you head to Page try to stay off the I's as much as possible and make it a point to Catch as many State Parks as you can - they are great. Goblins - Kodachrome - Goosenecks - and More.

Near page there are an Abundance of slot Canyons so keep them in mind, along with Horseshoe bend of the Colorado.

After Page we will always try to catch Canyon de Chelly if open? With Covid you need to be aware that the Native Americans have been hard hit and as you go south you are usually on their Lands. So they may be slightly restrictive, not sure as we stayed in Colorado this summer with just a touch of northern Utah.

All the CG's I'm sure have been suggested as there are not a lot of Options.

After Page you may do a Day trip to The North Rim - great this time of year. (It closes early)

Hope this helps,

Just got back from our annual road trip, and Lake Powell was our last stop before getting home. We stayed at the Wahweap Campground within the Lake Powell Recreation Area with full hookups. The sites are fairly well spaced out in Loop B, where we stayed. Most sites are drive-through and Wifi was very good. We had a great site with lake views and the nightly rate was $68. You can get into the recreational area for free if you have the yearly or senior pass. I highly recommend renting a boat in the lake or take a tour, if offered. Just south of Page, there is the famous Colorado River horseshoe bend. Years ago, there was a dirt parking lot adjacent to the highway where you could park for free and take a look at the river, but now the govt built a paved parking lot and there is a fee to park. I'm assuming the yearly or senior pass is valid there as well.

A couple of years ago, we overnighted in Monument Valley, on our way to Moab, and stayed at a KOA. When we were planning our trip this year, we thought about going through that area again and we called Goulding's. We were told the tours in Indian lands were closed due to the pandemic. On our way to Lake Powell from Colorado, we drove through Four Corners and the parking lot in Indian land where the Four Corners marker is located was also closed.
