Havasuapi Reservations 2019

The official website for permits for Havasupai permits for 2019 has just released information on pricing for this year. Unlike previous years you can now only book 3 night 4 day stays at the campground. The pricing is $100 per person per night but on weekends and holidays that increases to $125. So an average weekday trip for one person will now be $300 which includes your campground stay, permit and fees. Also, only one name can now be on the reservation so anyone joining you must arrive with you to the Office of Tourism to obtain their wristband. There will be no phone reservations this year.

It is recommended you set up an account on the Havasupai permit website listed above that way when they become available on February 1st at 8am (Arizona time) you can easily pick your dates and purchase.

The increase from last year, and the mandatory 3 night stay will surely have some rethinking their travel plans. We really enjoyed the trip and are considering a return one but we also know we could put that money towards a trip to someplace we have never been before. The area is stunning and worth the journey, but there's also the cost to get to the reservation, the items needed for the backpacking trip and the time off work to consider.

If you've been before do you think it's worth the price? Or if you haven't been would this increase deter you from traveling to Havasuapi?
