Day-use reservations, park pass required at Grand Canyon north rim's Tuweep area

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Arizona -- Beginning July 21, 2022, day-use reservations are required in a pilot program that the National Park Service has implemented to manage increasing visitation at the remote Tuweep Visitor Area, on the Grand Canyon's north rim.

Only six private-vehicle ticket reservations will be available daily to reserve up to 120 days prior to a visit. Reservations for the remaining 12 private-vehicle day-use tickets to enter the Tuweep area will be available to purchase daily, two days prior and up to the day of a scheduled visit.

The Tuweep area, an ancestral homeland of the native Southern Paiute people, is commonly accessed via long stretches of unpaved, sometimes rough and muddy roads from Fredonia, Arizona, and St. George, Utah.

Reservations are required for four-wheeled vehicles and motorcycles.

Tickets to visit the Tuweep area, which includes the breath-taking Grand Canyon overlook at Toroweap (photo), can be reserved online at

Visitors must have both a day-use ticket ($2 in 2023, non-refundable), and a park-entrance or site pass.

More information is available on the park's website.
