Important Check-In Information for 2024 Reservation Holders
The Havasupai Tribe looks forward to welcoming our visitors back to Supai. Please read carefully and ensure that all members of your reservation group understand and agree to the following information.

Office hours for July 2024 are 6 am – 6 pm each day.

Check-in for ALL permit reservations (campground and lodge) takes place at Grand Canyon Caverns Inn, located at Mile Marker 115, Route 66 near Seligman, Arizona 86434. The trip leader MUST check-in for all members of their group, beginning the day before your arrival date and no later than noon on the first day of your reservation. Failure to do so will result in your reservation being cancelled. No refunds or rescheduling of dates will be issued.

The check-in office is located on the right-hand side of the GCCI lobby when you walk in the main doors. There will be signs.

The trip leader will need to provide photo ID to receive all permits, wristbands, bag tags, and an entrance form, which will need to be completed and shown to the Havasupai Reservation boundary checkpoint staff.

All members of the group will be asked to show all required paperwork (including acceptance of the terms and conditions, screenshot will work) at the Havasupai Reservation boundary checkpoint, approximately 5 miles from Hilltop (the trailhead). There will be no congregating at the checkpoint so please make sure all members of your group have the required paperwork.

You must check-in for your reservation the day before and no later than noon on the first day of your reservation. You can start the hike on any day of your reservation, and you must depart on or before the last day of your reservation. There is no refund for unused days.

The trail is open for hiking 24 hours a day. Please use caution as assistance may not be readily available during non-business hours.

It is the responsibility of each tourist to bring the necessary gear and equipment for camping. The tribe does not offer or sell tents, sleeping bags, heaters or other camping supplies. The store stocks a limited number of food items, but you should bring your own food, water, etc. Plan accordingly for changes in weather, the Reservation can experience high and low temperatures, wind, rain and snow.

Please respect the sovereignty of the Havasupai Tribe and abide by all posted signage and instructions from the rangers. Only hike in designated areas.

Please note: There is NO camping at Hilltop. That includes no sleeping in your vehicle at Hilltop. There is limited parking at the trailhead. Additional parking is available along the road leading to the trailhead.

Mule reservations will be confirmed at check-in. Mule reservations are non-refundable. If you intend to use this service, you must ensure your packs and supplies are the proper weight and size for your mule reservation.

• Visitors must obtain their pack mule tags no later than 9am on the morning of your reservation arrival date in order for your reservation to be honored.
• For Packs from Hilltop to Campground: Visitors must drop bags off no later than 10am at Trailhead. Bags can be dropped off as early as 4am at Trailhead on the morning of your reservation arrival date. Packs typically arrive down below around 5pm.
• For Packs from Campground to Hilltop: Bags ready for transport must be dropped off no later than 7am at Campground. Packs typically arrive up top around noon.

To address the issue of tourists leaving trash and gear in the canyon, the tribe has authorized a civil citation and fine of up to $1,000. Individuals will be cited for failure to take all their trash and gear out of the canyon. Leave no trace (Pack It In, Pack It Out). Please help keep the Havasupai lands clean. The cost to remove tourist trash and gear by helicopter is substantial. You are responsible to take out what you bring in!

Vaccination status or negative test results are not required at this time. However, the Tribe requires all visitors wear a mask while in Supai Village and in all public areas including the store and the cafe. Please bring your own mask. Failure to comply may result in immediate removal from the Reservation at your expense. The Tribe reserves the right to update its COVID protocols at any time up which may include the suspension of tourism for non-compliance of the mask requirement.

The store and the cafe will be open to tourists during normal operating hours. It is possible that there will be occupancy restrictions, please abide by all signage and onsite instructions. Please wear your mask at all times while in the store or the cafe.

Protect Havasupai From Uranium Mining Congress Must Act to Save the Havasupai Tribe from Extinction
Written by Chairwoman Kissoon in an opinion piece for Newsweek:
"We have seen the irreparable damage uranium mining can do. For generations we have been at the forefront, working to permanently protect our homelands from uranium mining, which has disproportionately harmed and sickened Indigenous people across northern Arizona. The Senate has the power to protect not only our Grand Canyon home and our waters, but also the health and safety of our tribe and the people of the Southwest from the life-threatening effects of uranium mining. We urge the Senate to do the right thing and protect the Grand Canyon now and for future generations."
