Welcome to the Zion National Park Wilderness Reservation System!

Here you can make a reservation for a wide variety of wilderness permits including canyoneering, backpacking, and climbing trips.

A reservation is not a permit; those with reservations must pick up their permit at a park visitor center before beginning their trip.

A wilderness permit is a contract between you and Zion National Park through which you agree to help us preserve and protect the wilderness for future generations. Learn more about Wilderness in a three-minute video.

As the permit holder, you are responsible for adequately preparing yourself and your group for a self-reliant and accident-free trip. Your safety and the safety of your group is your responsibility.

The fees are non-refundable and are as listed below:

  • Reservation applications: $5.00.
  • Advance lottery applications: $5.00.
  • Last minute drawing applications: $5.00.
