Canyonlands National Park Backpacking Needles

Backpackers on their way to Chesler Park The Needles is the most popular backpacking destination in the park. Most trailheads are accessible by two-wheel-drive vehicles, and water may be found in many of the canyons east of Chesler Park.

Permits are required for all overnight trips in the backcountry. During the spring and fall, demand for permits frequently exceeds the number available. If you plan to visit Canyonlands during peak season, it is recommended that you make reservations well in advance. Designated campsites (one group per site) have been established along most trails. Groups camp at-large in areas without sites or trails. The status of most water sources is available at the visitor center.
