Petrified Forest National Park Camping and Lodging Options

Camping and Lodging

There is no overnight lodging or campgrounds in the park. Backcountry camping is allowed with a free permit and more than one mile away from one of two parking areas. There are a few private campgrounds in the surrounding communities as well as public campgrounds in a few nearby state parks, National Forests and National Monuments. A few different nearby businesses allow RVs to stop in their parking lot overnight.

Motels are available in Holbrook, which is west of the park (Exits 285 and 286 off I-40).
