Where Do I Park?

Parking in the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater (Miles 1 - 3)

The Bryce Canyon Amphitheater is where you can access the four main viewpoints: BryceInspirationSunset, and Sunrise Points. The majority of the park's day hikes can be found in this area.

Each viewpoint has a parking area that is open to private vehicles, however, due to the popularity of this area, parking spaces can be sparse during our peak seasons. 

To avoid full parking lots, we recommend using the free shuttle to see the Bryce Amphitheater. Shuttles are offered as a convenience but are not mandatory; no reservations required.

Parking Along the Southern Scenic Drive (Miles 3 - 18)

There is no shuttle service in this part of the park, although private options may be available. All vehicles, including oversized vehicles over 23 feet (7 meters), are permitted to drive this road and park at all viewpoints.

Note that in winter, following snowstorms, the main park road closes temporarily at mile marker 3 to allow snow plow crews to clear snow from the higher elevations of the park's Scenic Southern Drive. Closures typically last a day or more, depending on snowstorm durations.

The Bryce Amphitheater area is the first area to be plowed, so it remains accessible even during temporary closures of the Southern Scenic Drive. Check the Conditions Page for road statuses.
