Canyon De Chelly Campground (Cottonwood Campground) is located in the Navajo Nation and has about 90 individual campsites and 2 group tent sites. Each site includes a parking space, picnic table and grill. There are 3 restroom facilities that include sinks and flushable toilets, but no showers. No hookups are available, but a dumpstation is located in Loop 1. Limited services are available during winter months.

You can contact the Navajo Nations Parks and Recreation (928-674-2106) for camping reservations, back-country permits and canyon tours.

The Monument includes spectacular canyons and incredible cliff-dwelling ruins that was home to one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes of North America. Experts estimate that Ancient Puebloans planted crops and raised families more than 5,000 years ago, with the Hopi and Navajo coming after the Puebloans.

Canyon de Chelly is unique among National Park service units, as it is comprised entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land that remains home to the canyon community. The Monument has a visitor center, park store, miles of hiking trails, ranger led programs, canyon tours and scenic drives.
