There are ruins all around the Four Corners area but the ones at Hovenweep are inspired and unusual, as if they had an architect who didn't follow the standards of the time and who had an eye for beauty. The easy trail around the canyon rim, across the bottom of the canyon and back to the rim takes you up close to the main set of ruins. There are other ruins a short hike, or short drive away.
The campground is exposed to the wind but is otherwise very nice, with good restrooms, water and covered picnic tables. There's a small visitors center and gift shop also. The sky is dark and full of stars. Spent one night there during a several hour thunderstorm and at one point crawled out of my tent and into the car when the strikes were only a couple of seconds away. I'd avoid that situation if you camp there.
