Accessibility
National parks are set aside for the enjoyment of all. Because of the rugged nature of many of the nation's treasures, it has been difficult to provide access for everyone who might have special needs. The National park Service has been making strides to furnish facilities that allow everyone the opportunity to enjy the beauties of the great outdoors.

Visitors will find that this is true at Bryce Canyon as well. Some of the steps to insure accessibility include:

  • restrooms with accessible stalls
  • accessible campsites
  • half-mile section of the Rim Trail between Sunset and Sunrise Points is suitable for wheelchair and those who have difficulty walking
  • arking displaying the International Access Symbol
  • many ranger guided interpretive programs (check at the visitor center for applicable programs)
  • captioned visitor center slide program
  • Bryce Canyon General Store and Lodge are accessible as are the gift shop, laundry, showers, and restaurant.

    If you have any questions about accessible facilities withiin the park, pleast contact the visitor center which can also provide temporary parking permits if necessary.
