Dana Village is marvellous and the view into the canyon is even more so.
But treat yourself and visit the nationalpark (np-office is in the village) and stay in the camp for at least 1 night - do it. there are great self-guided tracks, and you will hardly believe the beauty of that pinnacled landscape. The tents are very comfortable with beds and blankets and the bathrooms are simply splendid. The rangers in the camp are great!
