How To Obtain Reservations to Hike Havasupai Falls
For 2019, only private, non-guided groups who obtain their own camping permits or Havasupai Lodge reservations are permitted access to Havasu Falls. Day trips are not allowed and the minimum stay in the canyon is now three nights.
With the current moratorium on guided trips, guests can make their reservations directly with the Havasupai Tribal Office. To make reservations with the Havasupai Tribe, visit their official reservations website. You will need to create an account and sign in. On the next page you will find the latest reservation fees and information on availability.
You can book a reservation to the lodge or make a camping reservation for the campground. The Havasupai Tribe is currently charging $100 per person per night Monday through Thursday and $125 per night Friday through Sunday. Rates are typically adjusted on an annual basis. The Havasupai Tribe will require full payment at the time of your reservation and there are no refunds.
Hiking and Camping at the Havasupai Waterfalls
The Havasupai Reservation encompasses a portion of Grand Canyon and is considered one of the most remote reservations in the United States. To get there requires at least a 4-hour drive from any major airport, a considerable portion of which is on quiet, remote roads. Upon reaching Hualapai Hilltop, you will either need to hike the arduous 8 miles to the village of Supai or ride a helicopter or horse. The Havasupai Campground is located another 2 miles from the village, along the banks of Havasu Creek and short stroll from both Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls.
The hike, though along an easy to follow and well-used trail, is long and tiring and it can be exceedingly hot in the months of June, July, and August. Extra caution is required in July and August when the summer monsoon weather can bring torrential downpours resulting in dangerous flash floods. It is highly advised that hikers check weather conditions and consult with Tribal rangers prior to beginning their hike during that time of year.
There is no drinking water available at Hualapai Hilltop or for the first 8 miles along the trail, so those hiking to Havasupai will need to arrive with enough water for the hike. It is recommended to have 3 to 4 liters of water, per person, for the hike. Drinking water is available in Supai, as well as in the campground.
A Havasupai camping permit will allow access to the campground but be aware that you are not reserving a specific campsite. Upon arrival at the campground, camping space is spread out across an approximately 0.75 mile-long stretch of canyon on either side of Havasu Creek. You will need to find a place big enough to accommodate your tents and stake your claim. It is best to expect that you will have neighbors very close by. There are picnic tables randomly placed throughout the camping area but there are certainly not enough for every group. Composting toilets are available throughout the campground but it is advised to bring your own toilet paper.
