The Mittens

Camping in Monument Valley puts you in the front row to enormous rock features, cliffs, and the famous pair of buttes with “thumb” outcrops known as The Mittens.

A little bit of research went a long way in helping secure this campspot at a rock climbers paradise in the Alabama Hills.

Lagoon Grove

When your campspot is on the forested waterfront of a beautiful lagoon, it’s a given that the duration of your stay will be epic from start to finish.
