The Navajo Nation

Built within the boundaries of both the Navajo Nation and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Antelope Point Marina is designed to support the mission of the Navajo Nation’s Parks and Recreation Department: “. . . to protect, preserve and manage tribal parks, monuments and recreation areas for the perpetual enjoyment and benefit of the Navajo Nation”. The unique floating Marina Village draws on the traditional Navajo Hogan as its architectural inspiration. Its six-sided structure facing east features a combination of stone, rust-colored metal and expansive glass to both blend with the landscape and bring it inside. The Marina’s night lighting is deliberately sited at ankle height to minimize light pollution and preserve a “dark sky” for star gazing, while ensuring safe navigation of walkways and boat slips. Developed out of a unique partnership with the Navajo Nation and the National Park Service, Antelope Point Marina pays special respect to the culture and environment of this region.
