Havasupai is a sovereign Native American nation with its own rules, customs, laws, and way of life - please be respectful of the land, the people, and your fellow visitors.
The Havasupai Reservation is federal trust land. Trespassing is a violation of both Tribal and Federal Law, and is punishable thereunder both civilly and criminally. Entrance upon the Reservation constitutes consent to the civil jurisdiction of the Havasupai Tribe.
Any violation of any Rule or Law may result in immediate termination of all permits for everyone included on all related Campground Reservations, and may also result in additional consequences, including, but not limited to, possible fines, exclusion from the Havasupai Reservation, seizure of property, prosecution under the jurisdiction of the Havasupai Tribal Court, and/or imprisonment under Havasupai, Arizona, and/or U.S. Federal law. Refunds will NOT be given in the event of a violation.
YOU are responsible for the conduct and actions of yourself and EVERYONE on your Campground Reservation (and on all related Campground Reservations).
Only visit Havasupai with people who are well known to you and who are not likely to create problems or issues.
If you, or any member of your group, is a registered sex offender in any jurisdiction, you are NOT permitted to visit.
It is required that ALL visitors set up their own account on HavasupaiReservations.com
Entrance onto the Havasupai Reservation is conditioned upon the Tourist's consent to the Tribe's civil regulatory and civil adjudicatory jurisdiction. By entering onto the Havasupai Reservation, non-Indians consent to the Tribe's civil regulatory and civil adjudicatory jurisdiction. Tourists consent, contractually, to the Tribe's civil jurisdiction upon entering the Reservation.
Visitors should be alert at all times throughout their visit and carry plenty of water, especially during summer when temperatures can soar to well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius).
Please also be prepared for the summer Monsoon season (usually July through September) when there is an increased chance of rain and flash flooding. If you hear or see flood waters approaching, or if you are caught in a rainstorm, get to high ground immediately and wait until it clears.
Do NOT hike past the top of Mooney Falls or enter narrow parts of the canyon when it is raining or flooding.
There are no public health facilities in the village of Supai. In the event of an injury, it may take many hours or even days to get treatment or be transported out of the canyon. Trained emergency rescue teams are not available in the village. Emergency transportation may not be available at night or in certain weather conditions. In case of an emergency, helicopter transportation is necessary and the financial cost will be high and family members will not be taken with the patient but will need to find their own way out of the canyon. The cost of evacuation is solely the responsibility of the injured party.
Be aware that failure to heed safety recommendations could result in loss of personal property, serious injury, illness, or even death. Do not take unnecessary risks.
Although not anticipated or likely, circumstances may arise that result in the closure of all or part of the Havasupai Indian Reservation to tourists. If such closures occur, the Havasupai Tribe will not be responsible for any expenses related to a planned trip to Supai, including but not limited to, the cost of a reservation, fees paid to the Havasupai Tribal Tourism Department, transportation costs, clothing, equipment, medical expenses, hotel reservations, food, etc. Refunds will NOT be given if adverse weather or an emergency situation or natural disaster necessitates early or late departures or delays or prevents entry. The Havasupai Tourist Enterprise/Office is NOT responsible for any transactions, agreements, or arrangements for products or services made outside of the Havasupai Tourist Enterprise/Office. All reservations are paid in full at the time the reservation is made and are non-refundable, non-changeable, and non-transferable (except via the official Transfer System here at HavasupaiReservations.com). Access to and availability of the Transfer System may be changed or revoked at anytime.
Safeguard your personal property and keep money and valuables with you at all times. Be certain all your belongings are clearly marked with your name and contact information. The security of your vehicle and property left at Hualapai Hilltop cannot be guaranteed as year-round 24-hour security services are not provided.
Traveling in the canyon, camping, and other recreational activities have some element of risk involved and you agree to assume the risk of engaging in such activities and further agree to hold harmless the Havasupai Tribe, Havasupai Tribal Council, Tribal Departments and Enterprises, tribal employees, tribal contractors, and individual tribal members from any and all losses, claims, expenses, suits, costs, demands, liabilities, damages, injury, including death, or loss to person or property, that may arise out of or result from activities during the course of a visit or as a result of accidents, emergency conditions, or any other occurrence during the course of a visit.
You affirm that you accept and agree to all Havasupai terms, conditions, rules, laws, regulations, and official orders, which are subject to change any time without notice, and you release the Havasupai Tribe and its people, employees, and contractors from any and all liability.
The above is just an overview of some of the possible issues and challenges of visiting Havasupai and Havasu Falls. Please come prepared, stay safe, and enjoy your visit.
