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.

Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department (NPRD) has taken management of the Cottonwood Campground since November 2010. Under NPRD management, fees will be collected for the campground and backcountry permits.

  • SOUTH RIM DRIVE
  • NORTH RIM DRIVE
  • HIKING TRAILS
  • CANYON TOURS
  • CAMPGROUND

Fees will be collected beginning April 16, 2012.
