Reservations go on sale for Havasupai Campground on Saturday, February 1st. If you are hoping to stay at the campground and visit one of the turquoise waterfalls of Havasu or Mooney Falls from March 1st on, reservations become available at 8 a.m. Arizona time (M.S.T.).
In the past, the tribe wasn’t as strict about needing a permit in advance of a person’s visit. Often, visitors would show up and purchase a permit at Supai. Those days are long gone. Hiking is not permitted without an advance lodging or campground permit!
Reservations must now be purchased long in advance, and they have become even pricier than before. Each permit is for 4 days/3 nights whether or not you stay that long.
In 2019, each permit costs $375 per person. Prices are subject to change without notice, and they are not shown on the tribe’s reservation page.
All reservations must be paid in full at the time of reservation. They cannot be changed once purchased, and they are non-transferable and non-refundable.
With the costs involved, trip and travel insurance would be a wise investment!
