Monument Valley is a Navajo Nation tribal park, straddling the border of northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah of the Colorado Plateau. It preserves the Navajo way of life and some of the most striking and recognizable landscapes of sandstone buttes, mesas and spires in the entire Southwest. The area is entirely within the Navajo 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.
There are fees to enter the park. The park is open year-round except Christmas Day. The park is open Thanksgiving Day from 8:00 a.m. until noon.
The park hours are:
*Summer (May-September): 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
*Winter (October-April): 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
This visitor center is one mile east of U.S. highway 163 on the Arizona-Utah border.
