In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, temporary changes have be made to the Zion Wilderness Permit Operation.
Permits are not required for day climbs, but they are required for all overnight bivouacs. It is illegal to camp at the base of the wall or in your vehicle.
Advance Reservations: up to 3 months in advance
Over half of all available permits are available using an online calender reservation system. Reservations are available online during a three month time frame. On the fifth day of every month at 10:00 am MT, reservations for the next month become available. If they are still available, they can be made until 5:00 pm MT on the day before your trip.
Make a Climbing Reservation: 3 months in advance
There is a $5.00 non-refundable fee for an online calendar reservation, and there is an additional charge for a permit that is determined by the size of your group.
About one-third of climbing permits are not availble through the reservation system. They are available as walk-in permits and can be obtained at park visitor centers the day before or the day of your trip.
$15.00 - 1-2 people
