Access to the rest of the park by using these services will be extremely limited, as facilities along the main park road can be miles apart. Due to the remoteness of this area we are finding that visitors arriving by UBER/LYFT/or similar transportation are unable to acquire a return pickup, we suggest checking with your driver for return arrangements or have an alternative taxi option. There is no other public transportation to this site.
