Narrow Canyon Orchards is a three acre farm located near Monument Valley on the NAVAJO NATION. It is nestled on the side of a sandstone canyon, with towering buttes above it and a spring fed running stream running along side it. The pride and joy of the farm are the Apricot Orchards that were planted nearly 45 years ago by my grandfather. Guests can enjoy the pristine beauty of the landscape & relax in this exclusive secluded area. Guests can go also on a guided hike the next morning at the time and distance of their choosing. Narrow Canyon Orchards is definitely an exclusive harmonious place for people who love to visit desert canyon oases. It is also a great place for people who just need to get away from all the technology and bustle of today, you can definitely find some relaxation at our farm. Besides enjoying the view of the Orchards, spring stream, and sandstone buttes, guests will also get to experience a place few visitors of the Navajo Nation get to visit. Our spring-fed pond and cattail reed filled water way is a great place to pull up a chair, relax, and possibly read a book. At night, our guests will get to either enjoy a dark star filled night sky or see the canyon walls lit up by some intrinsic moonlight, granted the weather permits, which it usually does. And if you'd want to see a diverse and rich rock seeping spring botanical area, then the Box Canyon Guided Tour in the morning will be mesmerizing at the least. So if you choose to book our farm, only you and your family, friends, or acquaintances will be staying there, meaning only YOU and the PEOPLE YOU ARE WITH will get to enjoy each other’s company at such a beautiful canyon desert oasis. This is a PRIMITIVE CAMPSITE, meaning it is perfect for people who have their own camping gear or adventure/overland vehicles. There are no metal fire rings, picnic tables, or provided bedding. However there are rock lined fire rings and FIRES ARE ALLOWED. There is quite a bit of small stickers right now at the farm, so make sure to wear some shoes or boots when exploring the farm. To make it to the farm/camping site, you will have to meet up with us at two predetermined locations and have a vehicle with a ground clearance of at least 8 inches or more. One of the meet up locations will be the parking lot at the Navajo Welcome Center in Oljato-Monument Valley, Utah area.(The farm is 17 miles from this location). The other meet up location is the Burger King parking lot in Kayenta, Arizona (The farm is 18 miles from this location). 5.7 miles of the trip is on a dirt road, which usually has washboards on it and a few rocky spots. Once you are at one of the meet up locations, just keep an eye out for our gold 2010 Toyota RAV4 that has a narrow black Yakima Box on top of the passenger side at the meet up spots(we’ve included this info in the booking instructions). Once we meet up, guests can follow us to their exclusive camping destination at Narrow Canyon Orchards Campsite. Meeting with us is required because other families in the area might become upset if non-Navajo people are driving all over the place trying to find our farm. So to respect their space and to make sure our guests are not lost trying to find our farm, it’s best we meet up. We do not provide any bedding, but we do have an extra 2 person tent and some extra pillows and blankets, that can be rented for $5 if you don’t have a tent of your own. We will also have a couple of hammocks available for anyone interested in sleeping in them or wanting to lay down and just relax in them.
