THE NAVAJO NATION The enormous Navajo Nation (the Navajo Indian Reservation) in northeast Arizona comprises almost one-fifth of the state. Included is a portion of the Painted Desert, with mountains, canyons, mesas, and plateaus.
Of special note here are famous Monument Valley, with its huge sandstone formations, along with the Little Colorado River Gorge, Marble Canyon, and the canyons of the San Juan River.
Activities: Hiking and backpacking are available on some unmaintained trails and paths. Visitors are asked to stay on trails and established routes. Fishing and hunting are allowed, but a permit is required for these activities.
Camping Regulations: A backcountry camping and use permit must be obtained in order to camp along the trails here. Permits are available in person or by mail, and a fee is charged for each night’s stay.
Some areas such as Navajo Mountain are off-limits to campers. Residential areas should also be avoided. Campfires are prohibited. Since summers are hot and winters cold, spring and fall are the best seasons to visit.
