2023 Reservation System:
In years prior, Red Rock Canyon Wilderness permits were available through a mail-in lottery system. For 2023, the park has updated this process to make it easier and more accessible for visitors. Red Rock Canyon permit reservations will be available online through www.recreation.gov; see key dates below. This will be a first-come, first-served reservation system, not a lottery. More detail is available in the news release here.
For 2023, Red Rock Canyon permits will open in two reservation windows on www.recreation.gov
