Chaco Canyon is a unique and wonderful place to visit - amazing archeology and celestially-aligned features, petroglyphs, cliff dwellings, inscriptions and high-desert landscape. If you like the night sky, you will find it amazing there! You can take a TT there, but can not camp with a unit over 35 feet. There are no hook-ups at all; no gas, no food, no ice; and you basically won't find any shade! The last time we were there was about 10 years ago; the road was very rough and I'd assume it's only gotten worse! There isn't much close to Chaco Canyon; I'm sure you can tell that from a basic search. Its isolated location makes it attractive & very much 'off the beaten path' & not a location with an over-abundance of visitors. As we live in Albuquerque, it's a day trip for us.
If you are interested in the archeological/historic aspect, you will find several other sites in the northwest New Mexico/southwestern Colorado area. There are also a number of national parks & forests that provide wonderful camping opportunities. If you are planning an April trip, I'd suggest visiting Chaco Canyon later in the month - it can still snow in the area in April & the dirt road to Chaco could be more than you might want to tackle in such conditions!
