Straddling the border of northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah, the buttes, mesas and towering rock formations of Monument Valley create a surreal landscape that changes with the rising and setting of the sun.
The area is entirely within the Navajo Nation Indian Reservation near the small Indian town of Goulding, establised in 1923 as a trading post, and now has a comprehensive range of visitor services, including a variety of guided tours.
This visitor center is one mile east of U.S. highway 163 on the Arizona-Utah border. Hours of the visitor center are identical to those of the monument. Both the visitor center and Mitten View Campground are equipped with handicap facilities.
NPS passes are not accepted.
