About Bryce Canyon National Park

Located in Utah’s southwestern region, Bryce Canyon National Park is one of the most spectacular of all the jewels in the National Park system. Bryce Canyon consists of a series of large natural amphitheaters, which are graced by dozens of gigantic limestone spires, or hoodoos.

Hoodoos are carved by frost in the Claron limestone that forms the canyon. Bryce Canyon has 200 days per year when frost forms and melts. The freeze-melt cycle forms wedges that force the rock apart. Meltwater then carries away sediments. 

The Park is named for Ebenezer Bryce, an early Mormon settler. After articles were published about the area in 1916, efforts were begun to protect it. Bryce Canyon became a National Monument on June 8, 1923, and a National Park on February 25, 1928.

Three endangered species, the California Condor, the Utah Prairie Dog and the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, all use Bryce Canyon as habitat. 

The Park is rated at a 7.4 limiting magnitude night sky. 7,500 stars can be seen without using equipment. 

Camping is available at North and Sunset Campgrounds. Several spaces are available by reservation, but most are first come, first served. The campgrounds have designated spaces for recreational vehicles, but there are no hookups. 

For those who prefer indoor accommodations, historic Bryce Canyon Lodge is located within the Park. Built in 1924-1925, the Lodge has several types of rooms and cabins. Reservations may be placed online. Other accommodations are available in facilities near the park. 

The Park has 10 hiking trails of varying difficulty. Two trails allow overnight camping. The Park offers horseback riding, snow skiing and snowshoe hiking. There is also an 18-mile scenic drive to Rainbow Point, with 13 viewing points along the way. 

The Visitor’s Center has more information about the Park and its activities.
