Havasu Canyon is a fragile environment and is subject to flash floods.

Because of flood damage that took place during 2018, 2019 and 2022, some areas in the canyon are OFF-LIMITS to visitors due to continuing repair work or unstable ground condition. Immediate closure of the canyon is possible at any given time during your visit. Visitors to Havasu Canyon assume all risks while in the canyon and should come prepared.

There are many more reservation requests than available campground spaces. The impact of visitors in the canyon, 2018 flood damage, and the cost of maintaining trails and visitor services has been overwhelming.

An account with Havasupai Reservations is required to create a 2023 campground reservation.
