Chaco Canyon is a wonderful place to visit. The long dirt road to get there is part of the whole experience. I stopped by and hiked around all the ruins. So much history to see there. I stayed in the campground and it was very...More

So like previous reviewers, we were a bit concerned about driving as the park info is a bit confusing with numerous TA writers talking about not finding it and the terrible roads. That said, we were driving from the north and the turnoff from 550...More

Excellent except for needing special permits to see some of the basic sites. This was not made clear to us at the reception desk and we only found out when we arrived at the access point. Also,the museum is lacking artifacts in the displays. There...More
