Since the place doesn't really have an official name and is generally referred to "Mexican Hat" here's the GPS coordinates in case you want to visit: 37.172547, -109.847076. The more scenic camping area is reached by following the access road you see going by the Tank above down into the San Juan River valley that cuts through the area. There is one steep part to the road but cars were easily traveling it when I was there.

I regretted only having 24 hours to spend at the Mexican Hat, the views of the rock formations were truly outstanding! I'm certainly loading it onto my "Must Revisit" list and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling through eastern Utah.
Thanks for reading!
