Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Canyon de Chelly National Monument:

"The best time we had, however, was when I rented a Safari Jeep and we packed a picnic basket and a bottle of wine and ventured into Canyon de Chelly National Monument."  See More

"Hello Kent, I've actually been living in New Mexico this winter in the mountains outside of Albuquerque and have been making lots of day trips/weekend trip all around the state, so I thought I would share my insight. I love it here, and it's amazing how much variety there is in the landscapes and cultures. I haven't yet made it to Chaco Canyon, but I have been looking into it. The ruins look amazing in pictures. If you were willing to camp, that would give you the most convenient access to the park, especially if you were planning on spending more than one day there. There is one camp ground in Chaco Culture National Historic Park called Gallo Campground. Otherwise the nearest hotels/motels are 1.5 hours away! Most of the land in NM is owned by the government which means most of it is devoid of development. The nearest towns to look for accommodations are Bloomfield, Aztec, or Cuba. You may find a bit more selection a little farther in Farmington. It's always worth running a search on airbnb.com and homeaway.com to see if there are any private homes available to rent for a night or two. I also recommend looking at the NPS website which has a lot of good info you may find useful:"  See More

"Hike to the bottom of Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Visit Monument Valley, Stop in at Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, Stay the night at EL Rancho on Friday and visit the Gallup Flee Market on Saturday morning, May 8th visit the CrownpointRug Auction, Stay in Downtown Durango and have a beer at Steamworks Brewing Company."  See More

Canyon de Chelly National Monument was a good stop, but we did not spend the night near there, instead driving on to Petrified Forest National ParkMeteor Crater RV Park and then spending the night in Flagstaff, which had a lot of good hotels and restaurants."  See More
