Spider Rock Campground

Spider Rock Campground Information

Spider Rock Campground, a magical raw landscape, nestled in a natural wooded area of the Tse Ho Tso Plateau at Canyon de Chelly National Monument, features more than 30 spacious RV and tent camping sites for you to choose from. Spider Rock Campground is open every day throughout the year. The winter months are some of the most stunning and peaceful at Canyon de Chelly, especially when it snows.

For tent and RV campers who love the crisp air, it’s “business as usual” in the wintertime!

For your camping comfort, we also have a number of cozy fork hogans, which were built by hand by the campground owner using local materials. Each hogan includes an interior wood burning stove to help you keep warm. Small hogans sleep 1 or 2 people; large hogans are suitable for up to 4 campers.

  • Small Hogan: Sleeps 1-2
  • Medium Hogan: Sleeps 1-4
  • Large Hogan: Sleeps up to 6

*** Rates vary depending on season.
