We camped here for nearly a week in October 2016. The campground is nice, on the small side, with two pit toilets available. Water is usually available in the campground and if it isn't, the restrooms at the visitor's center are open 24/7 and water is available there as well at a pump. The visitor center is nicely done with... More

Natural Bridges National Monument is a short drive distance from Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, it is worth it. The size of the bridges is incredible, the views is great and the trails are not very hard, some of them are long and others short. It is totally worth visiting it!

Highly recommend making this stop if already in Monument Valley. Make sure to go by way of the Moki Dugway highway. Has 3 miles of steep gravel road. Look it up on YouTube. Incredible views.

This was my second quick visit to Natural Bridges - it is a good 45 minute drive from towns, but can be made to be on the way to other places, and is a great stop, even if you only have an hour to see and explore around the 3 bridges. We especially loved walking down to the Owachomo Bridge.

Driving the rim of the monument is breath taking enough. To get a really up close and personal experience, take one of the hiking trails down into the canyon.

Great little loop for sightseeing.. the Owachomo Bridge hike down was well worth the effort ( minimal!) for a wonderful chance to stand under the bridge ( a different perspective!)!

Enjoyed the scenery very much. Even in the winter months is a breath taking. Would return for another visit in the summer

This National Monument makes it easy to view a number of natural bridges. The more adventurous can also get close to the bridges and also view petroglyphs and ruins. Make sure to check on when the park visitor center is open should you choose to visit outside the busy summer season. In winter, the park visitors center is closed on... More

The views of the bridges from the lookout points accessible from the very well maintained loop road are underwhelming. Really not worth it unless you have time and energy for the hikes necessary to get closer.

My daughter and I camped here 2 nights and hiked to all three bridges in one full day. Beautiful place with the best staff I've ever encountered at a National Park or Monument. They even came by the campground to check on us and invite us to activities. The facilities were very well taken care of with simple touches that... More
