Making Your Reservation

Reservations are required for guided tours of the site. Self-guided tours are offered on "Saturdays Without Reservations."

How to Reserve Your Tour:

Please send us an email or call with the dates and times that you would like to tour the site, as well as your phone number and number of guests. We do our best to accomodate same day reservations. But it is best to reserve at least 48 hours in advance.

We will call or email to confirm your reservation: If you do not hear from us within a few days (we are closed Monday and Tuesday), please give us a call or check your Spam folder to make sure your reservation was not sent there.

Note on Accessibility: Please include in your reservation request if you or any of your party have accessibility needs before visiting the site. This will help park rangers be prepared for your visit.
