The Four Corners is a magical place to visit and no visit would be complete without a visit to the Four Corners Monument. Life is short. You might as well go stand in four states at the same time if you can.

I’d like to suggest that Farmington is a great place to stay and to use as your “home base” while you tour the area (check our our Farmington RV Park).

Seeing the Four Corners Monument in an RV

If you want to see the Four Corners, then traveling in an RV is a great way to go and Farmington is a great central location from which to plan your daily excursions.

As you explore the area, you’ll find that Farmington is surrounded by ruins, historic sites, trading posts and incredible beauty. There’s a reason why people choose to live here – in addition to the Four Corners Monument, we’re surrounded by beauty in almost every direction.

I’m not going to suggest you imagine being here already, but once you get here, you may want consider:

  • Canyon De Shelly – This park is unique amongst the different National Parks because it is made up entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land. Enjoy the sacred ruins, beautiful canyons and cottonwood trees that are home to a community of Navajo people.
  • Chaco Canyon – Enjoy the ruins that were once a major center for the Puebloan people between AD 850 and 1250.
  • Aztec Ruins – Visit the ancestral Pueblo ruins or the nearby Salmon Ruins and Heritage Park. These ruins can be traced back to the ancestral Puebloans known as the “Anasazi.”

While you’re here, you may want to experience fresh-water fly-fishing, rafting, world-class golf, and even winery tours and 4×4 rock-climbing.

Overnight Excursion to Four Corners Monument

You may or may not have considered one of the best ways to see the Four Corners Monument and the area is to use your car for day trips and to then use your RV for overnight trips to the surrounding sites. This is a great and very economical way to see the area and spend enough time in each location to fully appreciate each of the sites.

Many of the surrounding sites have facilities for RVs and you can always use our full hookups, 50 amp service, and wireless internet while you are staying with us.
