Canyonlands National Park Park Regulations

Campfires

Wood fires are allowed in the developed campgrounds (e.g. Squaw Flat) and along the rivers. They are prohibited elsewhere in the backcountry. Wood may not be gathered in the park except along the river corridors where driftwood and dead-and-down tamarisk may be burned. River trips must use a fire pan and remove all fire debris from the backcountry.

Cultural Resources

Disturbing, entering or camping within 300 feet of an archeological or historical site is prohibited. Collecting artifacts is prohibited.

Hunting Fishing

Hunting is prohibited in Canyonlands. Weapons are prohibited. Fishing is allowed. Visitors who fish in the park must have a valid Utah State Fishing License and must comply with Utah State Fishing Regulations.

Natural Resources

Disturbing or collecting natural features (plants, rocks, etc.) is prohibited.

Off-road Vehicles

ATVs are not permitted in the park. Possession or operation of a bicycle or motor vehicle off a designated road is prohibited. Motor bikes must be street legal.

Permits

Permits are required for all overnight trips in the backcountry. Permits are also required for four-wheel-drive day use in Lavender, Horse and Salt Creek Canyons in the Needles.

Personal Water Craft

Personal water craft (e.g. Jet Skis) are not permitted on the rivers in Canyonlands.

Pets

Activities with pets are very limited in the park. Pets may accompany visitors in the developed campgrounds, and at overlooks along paved scenic drives, but must be leashed at all times when outside a vehicle. Pets are not allowed on any hiking trails or in the backcountry, even on a boat or in a vehicle.

Portable Toilets

Canyonlands requires all river runners to carry out their solid human waste. This is also required of visitors vehicle camping in the Maze District and at the New Bates Wilson camp in the Needles. The park requires the use of washable, reusable toilet systems or the type of system that uses dry chemicals and enzymes to render solid human waste into nonhazardous products acceptable for disposal in permitted landfills. Toilet systems must be designed to contain human waste in such a fashion as to provide for secure containment and adequate storage.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
