About Thunderbird Lodge

Located inside the park, near the mouth of Canyon De Chelly, the Thunderbird Lodge provides superb, comfortable lodging only minutes from the national monument. The Thunderbird Lodge is, in fact, the closest lodging option to the monument.


The Thunderbird Lodge provides the only lodging available within the park. The Thunderbird Lodge is a beautiful, historic, 73 room lodging facility reminiscent of yesteryear.

The Thunderbird Lodge is built on the site of an old stone-walled trading post built in 1896 which still stands today and adds to the flavor of this wonderfully unique lodging experience.

The Thunderbird Lodge is built in the style of the old red-adobe pueblos that the Anasazi Indians constructed and lived for centuries throughout the area. The grounds surrounding the lodge are beautifully manicured and maintained. You will enjoy the shade of cottonwood trees that surround the lodge and provide shelter from the sun.

The old trading post has been converted into a cafeteria-style restaurant which serves up Native American dishes as well as continental cuisine. The restaurant is beautifully adorned with examples of Navaho rugs and artwork which is available for purchase. In the center of the room is a vault-like room that used to serve as a jail cell for the trading post.

Also on site, Thunderbird Lodge’s gift shop and rug room offer some of the finest Native American jewelry in the area, for sale along with crafts and Navajo rugs, souvenirs, mementos, clothing and other items.
