Looking forward to some gorgeous views at the Grand Canyon this summer? Here are some tips to make your trip easier for your family:

Currently, Grand Canyon National Park does not require reservations or timed entry.

During the summer and hoiday periods, the South Rim Entrance Station experiences long lines and visitors can expect to wait in line for up to two hours to enter the park between 9:30 am to 4 pm.

To reduce wait times at the South Rim Entrance station, buy your park pass online at Your Pass Now, or from these businesses in the gateway community of Tusayan: the IMAX Theater, Tusayan Chamber of Commerce Office, Canyon Plaza Resort, Red Feather Lodge, and Westwind Air Service (located in the Grand Canyon Airport Terminal).

At the Entrance Stations, credit and debit cards, digital passes, and America the Beautiful passes are accepted for entry. Cash is not being accepted at this time. More about passes and entrance fees >

Visitors traveling to the area from Highway 89 can enter the park through the East Entrance at Desert View for shorter wait times.
