Hovenweep National Monument consists of six separate prehistoric village sites. These landmarks are noted for their square, oval, circular, and D-shaped towers. Standing and tumbled piles of masonry and the remains of many pueblos, small cliff dwellings, and towers are scattered throughout the canyon.

Located along the border between southeast Utah and southwest Colorado, 113 miles south of Moab.

Do not use GPS to find your way. There are numerous paved and dirt roads intersecting each other in this remote corner of Utah. The Hovenweep Visitor Center is located 45 miles from Blanding and Bluff, Utah. Hovenweep is open year-round. Hours may vary depending on staffing and holidays. Trails are open sunrise to sunset. 


There is a 31-site campground near the visitor center. Several of the sites are designated for RVs, but there are no hook-ups. Open year-round, first-come, first-served. $15/night per site. Credit cards not accepted.

Pets are allowed in the campground and on trails but must be leashed at all times.
