You are responsible for reading and understanding all of the information on this page before making a reservation.
By making a Havasupai Lodge reservation you (the person making the reservation), and anyone else on the reservation or related reservation(s) (if applicable), acknowledge and agree to fully abide by: the Havasupai Lodge Reservation Requirements, the Havasupai Visitor Conduct Conditions and the Havasupai Tourism Code regulations, including as stated below.
Reservations and accounts are required for all Havasupai visitors, including those staying at the Havasupai Lodge.
All visits to Havasupai and Havasu Falls require a reservation made prior to arrival.
Havasupai Lodge reservations must be booked in advance, and can only be booked on HavasupaiLodge.com. Reservations from any other source or provider are not valid.
Lodge reservations, accounts, account holders and all members of a reservation party are subject to the full terms and conditions as referenced in these Terms and Conditions and on HavasupaiLodge.com.
Havasupai Lodge reservations are paid in full at the time of booking and once booked are final. There are no refunds under any conditions or circumstances, so once a payment method has been charged, no funds can or will be returned. Review order details carefully prior to making a purchase. After a Lodge reservation has been finalized and paid for, no further changes can be made.
Reservations cannot be changed or transferred once booked, with the exception of, and limited to, only two specific conditions: 1) an approved Transfer System transaction, or 2) an internal transfer to a PATL (creating a substitute reservation holder / aka "trip leader" - hereinafter called Trip Leader).
People included on a reservation party may reimburse the account holder making the reservation for only up to the face value cost of their spot on the reservation.
Reselling reservations and soliciting reservations, in whole or in part, is strictly prohibited, and punishable to the strictest extent of Havasupai Tourism regulations. A reservation is a limited license that does not include private resale or purchase for greater than face value cost, and does not include public resale or purchase of any kind. This includes, but is not limited to, any or all public facilitating, brokering, offering, or responding to requests for reservations, in whole or in part, on any platform, including, but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, etc. Penalties include, but are not limited to, the entire reservation being canceled with no refund, and a permanent ban from Havasupai.
Lodge reservation pricing is per room and includes all necessary permits, fees, and taxes for all members of the reservation party. A Lodge room may include only up to 4 people in total.
There is only one name on a Lodge reservation and a reservation is only valid if the person named on the reservation (i.e. the Trip Leader / reservation holder) is present at the Lodge Office in the Village of Supai with valid photo ID, otherwise the reservation is not valid and will not be honored. Each reservation must have a unique trip leader.
Trip Leaders must bring a printed copy of their Lodge reservation confirmation. Additionally, write down (or take a photo of) your vehicle's license plate number parked at the trailhead, it will need to be produced upon check in.
If a Trip Leader knows beforehand that they will be unable to be present at check-in, or ends up with extra rooms on their reservation that will be unused, he or she may use the Havasupai Lodge Transfer System here at HavasupaiLodge.com to transfer one, some, or all of the rooms on their reservation, either directly to a PATL (Potential Alternate Trip Leader) or via the public Cancellation / Transfer List. All reservations are otherwise non-refundable, non-changeable, and non-transferable.
A PATL (Potential Alternate Trip Leader) is someone who is eligible to have a reservation transferred directly to them using the official Transfer System, most commonly for the purpose of substituting for the original Trip Leader / reservation holder. The PATL list can be edited in the account at any time. However, once a reservation has been purchased, no further changes can be made to the PATL list for that reservation. This means that once a transfer to a PATL has been completed, there is no further opportunity for future PATL transfers.
A PATL is not permitted to check-in independently of the Trip Leader. Only the Trip Leader can check in his or her reservation party. Only a PATL who has a reservation transferred to him or her can check in their reservation party, since they will have become the new official Trip Leader.
All visitors (even if they are not a Trip Leader or a PATL) must have an account here on HavasupaiLodge.com made prior to arrival. All members of a Lodge reservation party must have an account in order to be able to be verified and identified as legitimately visiting on Havasupai lands.
All visitors must have proof of their account (a printout of their account information page), proof of their Lodge reservation (a printout of the Lodge reservation that they are visiting under), and their photo ID available at all times while on Havasupai lands (which includes the entrance road via Indian Road 18 and the Hualapai Hilltop trailhead / parking area).
Lodge reservations are only valid on and between the arrival and departure dates listed on the reservation. Reservations are subject to all Rules and Laws of Havasupai, including the inspection of all people, baggage, and vehicles at the security checkpoint upon entering and exiting Havasupai land. Visiting Havasupai lands outside of these arrival and departure dates is considered trespassing and is a violation of Havasupai Laws and Visitor Rules.
Reservations, permits, and access during the dates listed on a reservation may be revoked with or without notice at any time. Lodge reservations may be cancelled by the Havasupai Tribe for any reason, at any time, and without recourse. Appropriate travel insurance is highly recommended.
With a valid Lodge reservation, members of a reservation party (the group of visitors on a Lodge reservation) are permitted to enter Havasupai tribal land and drive to the Hualapai Hilltop trailhead via Indian Road 18, where they can park in the permitted visitor parking area. Lodge visitors may travel along approved trails to the Village of Supai, where the Lodge is located. The 8 mile section of trail between the Hilltop trailhead and the Village of Supai is closed each night between sunset and 4:00 a.m.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE MAKING A RESERVATION
Havasupai is a Carry In = Carry Out designated location (akin to the principles of Leave No Trace). It is the responsibility of each visitor to ensure that anything brought onto Havasupai lands is also brought back off of Havasupai lands, and that nothing is left behind.
Visitors caught or reported as violating these regulations are subject to prosecution to the fullest extent of Havasupai Laws and Tourism Code regulations.
Visitors must protect their food, belongings, trash, and everything else with an odor, at all times. The only 100% effective method of doing this is for each visitor to keep these items securely in the Lodge room with the door closed. Item protection is especially important when going out on hikes to the permitted visitor areas along Havasu Creek and the waterfalls.
Each visitor should carry a day pack with essentials (including emergency aid care) whenever exploring the tourist access permitted areas. All food, trash, and everything with an odor should always be kept in odor-proof bags like OPSAK Odor-Proof Barrier Bags or alternatively in Ziplock Freezer Bags, and should never be left unattended. There are critters that are relentless in their attempts to get into packed food, belongings, and trash. Each visitor is responsible for not letting them do so.
Do not feed ANY animals when visiting Havasupai.
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 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 onto the Havasupai 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 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.
Each visitor is responsible for their own conduct and actions, and the actions of anyone and everyone else on the Lodge reservation they are part of, as well as all related reservations.
Havasupai should only be visited with people who are well known to the reservation Trip Leader and those in the reservation party, and who will not create problems or issues.
Registered sex offenders in any jurisdiction are not permitted to visit.
Entrance onto the Havasupai Reservation is conditional upon the tourist visitor's consent to be subject to the Havasupai Tribe's civil regulatory and civil adjudicatory jurisdiction. By entering onto the Havasupai Reservation, non-Indians contractually consent to the Tribe's civil regulatory and civil adjudicatory jurisdiction.
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. In these emergency cases, 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.
Appropriate travel insurance is always highly recommended.
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 Reservation to tourists. If such a closure occurs (for any reason, including flooding or health safety), 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, natural disaster, health emergency, and/or disease epidemic/pandemic necessitates early or late departures, delays, or prevents entry.

Appropriate travel insurance is always highly recommended.
Traveling onto Havasupai tribal lands and partaking in recreational activities thereon always carry an element of risk, which can result in detrimental consequences. Each visitor (or guardian) agrees 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, 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.
