Things To Know Before You Come
Use the tips on the following pages to plan a late spring, summer, or early fall visit. The Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum and Spruce Tree House are open nearly all year (only closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day).

Be sure to check the park's seasonal Visitor Guides and the Operating Hours and Seasons page for details on services available during your visit.
