Visitors can reserve Loop A sites from March 15 through June 30 and from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, officials said. Sites in Loop A are available on a first-come, first-served basis at all other times of the year.
For camping in Loop B at the campground all sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. That campground is open spring through fall.
“Due to increased visitation over the last few years, demand for campsites at the Needles district of Canyonlands during the spring and autumn months has grown significantly,” park officials said in the news release. “Visitors often drive the 45 minutes from U.S. 191 to the campground only to find all sites already occupied. Offering reservations for Loop A will allow visitors to plan ahead and ensure that they have a campsite upon arrival.”
As of Jan. 11, visitors can make reservations for camping in the Needles district on recreation.gov.
Campsites fees are $20 per night, or $10 per night for Interagency Senior, Access, Golden Age and Golden Access pass holders. In addition, a $10 non-refundable reservation fee will be charged when campsites are reserved through recreation.gov.
