They are increasing access and services in a phased approach across all units of the National Park System. Also, before visiting a park, please check the park website to determine its operating status. Updates about the overall NPS response to COVID-19, including safety information, are posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.
Please note: The Desert View and the East Entrance remain closed because of COVID-19 lockdowns on the neighbouring Navajo Nation. You must enter and exit the park through the South Entrance.
