I've been wanting to see HavaSu the first time I saw it on trafvel magazine, truth be told, now that I am single, I hope to find someone who enjoys the outdoor as much as I do and can endure the bugs and the sweat. I am capable of doing things on my own, which likely is what I will end up doing. There are things I have put off in hopes someone will come along in my life. But as I travel more, I am beginning to enjoy the solo travels.

Due to increased popularity of visiting Havasu Falls and hiking to the other waterfalls in Havasu Canyon, the Havasupai tribe has instituted some changes to how they manage reservations and permits. All payment is due at the time of booking One credit card is allowed per group, ie. if you get through the phone lines and want to reserve spots for your 10 friends you must pay for all 10 on one card. Payments to the tribe are non-refundable Permit reservations are non-transferable Campground The campground is located within a 5-minute walk of the beautiful 100-foot Havasu Falls, about 2 miles downhill from the Village of Supai. In between the Village and the campground there are two other waterfalls. (See our blog post about Havasu Falls and the other waterfalls of Havasupai.) The campground is about ¾ of a mile long and spots are not defined and are available on a first come, first served basis. There are many wonderful spots to choose from throughout the campground. Lastly, there are no campfires allowed in the campground.
