Canyonlands National Park is Open
The park is open year-round, 24 hours a day.
Each district of Canyonlands has its own visitor center or ranger station. Hours vary by season.
Between March and October, particularly on busy holiday weekends, you may experience long lines at the entrance road, and parking lots at popular trailheads and viewpoints are often full.
The following holidays and weekends are especially busy:
Check traffic conditions outside the park on the Utah Department of Transportation Traffic Site.
Four-wheel-drive roads in Canyonlands range in difficulty from intermediate to extremely technical.
Rain and snow can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Check current road conditions.
Developed campgrounds at Island in the Sky and The Needles are open year-round. Sites at Island in the Sky are first-come, first-served. Some sites at The Needles are available for reservation. During spring and fall, the campgrounds usually fill early. Read more about camping in and around Canyonlands.
