Coming for a visit to Bryce Canyon National Park? Bryce Canyon is a wonderful place for kids of all ages! Just a few things kids and parents can enjoy at Bryce Canyon National Park.
...and much, much more. Come to the Visitor Center for more information.
Be a JR. Ranger
When you arrive, come to the Visitor Center to find out how to become a Junior Ranger. Kids who are 3 years and older can become Junior Rangers. Although the program materials are in English, there are activities in French and German that can replace one of the three requirements. What all Junior Rangers have in common is a love of nature!
Visitor Center Exhibit (Opening Soon)
Walk through the tall models of canyon walls, boulders and fossils in our new exhibit, but watch out! The stuffed mountain lion perched on a realistic rock ledge over your head looks like it might pounce on you!
Visitor Center Bookstore
You'll want to visit the attractive bookstore in our Visitor Center. There are books of all sorts, stuffed animals, CDs & DVDs, posters, hanging mobiles, magnets and hiking gear...and plenty of post cards!
Opt Outside and Hike All Day
Of course the best part about Bryce Canyon National Park is the great outdoors! Come and explore! We have some overnight hiking trails for tent campers. But our most beautiful trails can be done in a day or less. We have trails as short as half a mile (less than a km) and some as long as 11 miles (over 17 km). Signs will help you find your way through the hoodoo mazes!
