Camping is allowed in designated areas of the Navajo Nation. Permits are required and can be obtained through the Navajo Parks and Recreations website at navajonationparks.org. You will also be required to abide by the rules when camping and any violation to the rules is considered trespassing on Federal Indian Reservation.
“Be sure you have a good map of the reservation – one that will show the dirt and gravel roads that lead to the heart of the land. You can use a topographic map or buy a reservation map along the way. Fill up the gas tank… as gas stations are sparse. The sale of alcohol on the reservation is prohibited. Dress casually and bring your hiking boots, because trails meander across some of the Navajo and national parks into striking scenery”.
Two notable campgrounds are in:
Others are located at:
Cottonwood Campground – just west of Canyon De Chelly Visitor’s Center
Spider Rock Campground & RV Park – located at the east end of Canyon De Chelly, near Spider Rock formation
Many Farms Lake – In the small town of Many Farms, 18 miles north of Chinle, AZ
