Spider Rock Campground, Canyon de Chelly

It's a bit farther afield from Holbrook, and worth the 100-mile trip, to spend some time at Spider Rock Campground near Chinle and Canyon de Chelly National Monument. The campground is considerably more rustic than an RV resort; still, guests can fill their fresh water tank and dump their holding tanks on site, and they're welcome to use the Wi-Fi and enjoy an espresso. Spider Rock is open year-round; the camp's host says the area is particularly lovely in winter under a sprinkling of snow.
