Grand Canyon National Park will implement a new pilot advance day-use ticket reservation system for the Tuweep Visitor Use Area, July 21, 2022.

Park staff are managing for significant and steadily increasing visitation at Tuweep since 1995, along with limited park staffing in the area, ongoing vehicle safety, and natural and cultural resource concerns.

There will be two types of reservations available. One ticket will be for private vehicles and the other will be for authorized Tuweep tour Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) permit holders. The day-use reservation system will apply to the Tuweep area of Grand Canyon National Park, including all park areas within Toroweap Valley and on the Kanab Plateau. It excludes the North and South rim developed areas and overlooks.

Reservations to enter the Tuweep area will go on sale through at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, July 5. The day-use vehicle tickets will cost $2. Visitors must also possess a valid park entrance pass. Two CUA and six private vehicle ticket reservations will be available 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 two days prior and up to the day of a scheduled visit.
