We backpacked in and camped for 2 nights at the campground while doing day hikes to Mooney and Beaver Falls while we were there. They are all spectacular and the scenery is amazing. I have to agree, though, that the animals appear to be in poor condition. We thought about using a mule, but after we saw how poorly they... More

I just recently visited Havasupai for the first time from April 14th to 16th and although it is amazingly beautiful there, I couldn't get something off my mind. The horses and mules at Havasupai are mistreated and abused. While hiking down through the canyon I witnessed mules with open wounds due to the straps rubbing against them and their packs... More

The falls are just amazing! Although it is a long hike, it is well worth it! We camped for 2 nights, but wish we had stayed longer - the scenery is breathtaking and it is so peaceful!

Highly recommended experience but make sure you are healthy enough to do it- it's a long hike in... and out. Bring river/hiking shoes and get wet- water feels nice and is tons of fun. Take cash for fry bread- there is a guy right at campgrounds and it's delicious. Campgrounds go for a mile so take your time to find... More

I have one extra permit for these dates. The price which I have paid is $150. We had one in our party which cancelled the last minute.

The color of the water is just indescribable. The water was cold when I went but it was foggy and rained lightly that weekend. Still was so worth the trip because we literally had the falls to ourselves we only saw about 10 other people that weekend camping.

This was by far worth the trip. The waters were so refreshing after the gorgeous hike in. We were staying at the lodge so this was an extra 3 mile round trip from where we stayed. Although I wanted to sit and recover from the hike (it was not really that bad) the falls were worth getting out there. The... More

I went in March of last year and just had to go back. My daughter and I did a 3 day/2 night stay at the campground 2 weeks ago. The reservation system is now computerized where it was only by telephone last year. Despite getting an assigned campsite, it is still first come/first serve. That was important to me as... More

This falls is absolutely breathtaking. Pictures simply do not do it justice. It has a variety of "pools" that you can just soak in or wade through. Of the 3 out of the 4 falls we saw on our trip, Havasu Falls was by far my favorite. Note: The only way to reach the falls is to hike 10 miles... More

The hike begins with about 1.5 - 2 miles of switch backs. The path is wide and well groomed. No problem bringing young children. After the switchbacks, you have 6 miles of walking and I mean walking, down a river bed. I stress walking because I was told it was a strenuous hike. It is not! We took a lunch... More
