Navajo Nation Parks & Recreation oversees all Navajo Tribal Parks on the Navajo Nation Reservation. The Navajo Nation is compromised of essentially private lands, therefore all non-Navajo travelers and visitors must abide by and comply with the laws, regulations, and policies promulgated by the Navajo Nation Government, including those governing Navajo Tribal Parks, Monuments, and recreation areas. As you visit the Navajo Tribal Parks, we ask that you keep our Mother Earth clean and place all debris and trash in the trash receptacles.
The Mission of the Navajo Parks & Recreation Department is to protect, preserve and manage tribal parks, monuments and recreation areas for the perpetual enjoyment and benefit of the Navajo Nation – the spectacular landscapes, buttes, canyons, clean air, diversity of plants and wildlife, and areas of beauty and solitude.
We offer General Admission for Four Corners and Monument Valley, photography, filming/motion picture, and back-country permits for a variety of locations, and a list of guided tour operators in the Antelope Canyon area.
The Navajo Nation Parks & Recreation is one of the oldest programs within the Navajo Nation Government, which was established in 1957 by the Navajo Nation Tribal Council. Thus, began the responsibility of the Navajo Tribal Parks to the Navajo Nation Parks & Recreation Department.
The Navajo Nation Reservation is over 25,000 miles and covers over four states: NM, UT, CO, and AZ. Therefore, the laws, regulations, and policies brought forth by the Navajo Nation is governed by the Navajo Nation Laws and Policies. Please be cognizant of all Navajo Nation Laws while visiting our tribal parks. NO CREMATION, NO LITTERING, NO CLIMBING and NO DRONES inside the Navajo Tribal Parks.
We protect the Little Colorado River, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Four Corners, Canyon de Chelly – Campground, Bowl Canyon, and the Navajo Veterans Memorial Park.
