Navajo Tribal Parks

 

 

CANYON DE CHELLY

Navajo Nation Parks & Recreation Department and National Park Service are working together in developing a cooperative management plan which will require the help of canyon residents, several tribal departments, and other agencies.

The management plan will help to better manage resources, clearly define agency responsibilities, and involve local people in management decisions. With this development, some modifications may occur that will affect the way the park operates.

One major change will involve the collection of fees. The park does not currently charge fees; however, the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department (NPRD) is considering tribal management of the Cottonwood Campground, fee collection for the campground, and fee collection for backcountry permits.

Fees will be collected beginning April 16, 2012.

DO NOT desecrate Navajo lands and violate the trust of Navajo people by discarding cremated human remains on tribal property. Please respect tribal beliefs.
