North Rim Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon National Park will begin the fall seasonal shutdown to most visitor services and facilities on Tuesday, October 15; the North Rim will remain open to visitors through December 1 unless snow closes Highway 67 leading into the park prior to that date.

A limited number of campsites will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the North Rim Campground but these sites will be accessible only to foot traffic. No overnight parking or car camping will be allowed. A backcountry permit is required for camping and will be available through the South Rim Backcountry Information Center and the Visitor Center at Pipe Springs National Monument in Fredonia, AZ. The South Rim Backcountry Information Center is open year-round and can be reached by calling (928) 638-7875. Unless Highway 67 closes for snow, the North Rim will close for the season at 8 a.m. on Monday, December 2. Hikers and cross country skiers will still be able to enter the North Rim of the park through the winter months, providing backcountry permits have been obtained.

The South Rim and Inner Canyon facilities also remain open year-round.
For additional trip planning information, visit the park’s website at or call the park’s main information line at (928) 638-7888.
