Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in response to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Navajo Nation, States of Arizona and Utah, and county and community health departments, is announcing additional modifications to operations to support federal, state, and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  

Aramark is making operational changes in response to concerns for employee and visitor safety.  Effective immediately, day use boat rentals at Wahweap and Bullfrog are closed. Additionally, in Bullfrog, the Anasazi Restaurant is closed. The Bullfrog Corner Store and Lower Gift Shop will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., 7 days a week. Effective Saturday, April 4, 2020, houseboat rentals at Wahweap and Bullfrog are being closed.  For more information about Aramark’s operations, please visit their website at

In addition to following standard safety guidelines when recreating outdoors, the NPS urges people who choose to visit Glen Canyon during this pandemic to adhere to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other groups; wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, stay home if you feel sick.

The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is our number one priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor COVID-19. The park is looking forward to full resumption of operations as soon as feasible and will provide updates on our website Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and social media. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on
