A GUIDE TO RECREATION AND RELAXATION
First time visitors will enjoy the scenic and cultural diversity
of Northeastern Arizona. Navajo County covers over six million acres and is the
fourth largest county in the state. The county borders extend north through the
Navajo and Hopi reservations to the Utah state line, south to the White
Mountains, the Apache Reservation and along the Mogollon Rim.
In the north, semi arid, high plateau grassland reveals rugged
desert beauty. In contrast, the southern end is heavily wooded with juniper,
pinion, and ponderosa pine. The Indian Reservations in Navajo County include
the world renowned scenic Monument Valley, Historical Fort Apache and the
Ancient Hopi Villages.
Camping is available at Cholla Lake and
Show Low Lake Parks for a minimal fee.
Our County Park Rangers are present year round. Regular park hours are from
dawn to dark. Quiet time begins at 10:00 pm at the campgrounds.
Navajo County offers a variety of recreational settings and
activities for Northeastern Arizona. The parks surround lakes and provide
numerous opportunities for water-based recreation. Facilities have been
developed with funds and cooperation from the Navajo County Board of
Supervisors, the Arizona State Lake Improvement Fund and the Arizona Heritage
Fund, private corporations and volunteers. The operation, development,
maintainance and management of the parks is the responsability of the Navajo
County Parks and Recreation Department and Commission.
