Havasupai Indian Reservation

Please be aware that Havasu Canyon is a fragile environment and is subject to flash floods.

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.

Supai Village, located within Havasu Canyon, a large tributary on the south side of the Colorado River, is not accessible by road. The Havasupai Tribe administers the land, which lies outside the boundary and jurisdiction of Grand Canyon National Park.

There are many more reservation requests than available campground spaces. The impact of visitors in the canyon and the cost of maintaining trails and visitor services has been overwhelming. As a result in 2018 there will be price increases and new limits on number of nights available for reservations.

Reservations will be available online starting on February 1, 2018 at 8:00 AM Arizona time. Please note, no reservations for 2018 will be available until February 1st and reservations can be made through their online reservation system:

means people of the blue-green waters. The spectacular waterfalls and isolated community within the Havasupai Indian Reservation attract thousands of visitors each year. The Havasupai are intimately connected to the water and the land. When you enter their land, be respectful, you are entering their home.
