Grand Canyon campground goes to reservation system

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. — A primitive campground at the northern
reaches of the Grand Canyon will be available by reservation only starting Sept.

Tuweep Campground lacks services such as water, gas and cellphone coverage.
Grand Canyon officials said the change will help visitors ensure they have a
place to stay once they make the difficult drive.

Campers can make reservations four months in advance. Walk-up permits may be
obtained up to six days in advance in Fredonia or St. George, Utah.

Permits had been required for only the large group campsite. The nine family
sites had been available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Visitors also won’t be able to build a fire or have a charcoal grill at the
campground as of Sept. 1. Gas stoves are OK.
