Havasu Canyon reopening after flood repairs
The Havasupai Tribe announced the re-opening of the famous Havasu Canyon to tourists beginning May 1. Reservations for the campground and inn will be taken starting Feb. 21.
The canyon's facilities were severely damaged by back to back floods in early October but the Tribe has been working relentlessly to repair trails, campground, and other infrastructure in time for the spring season.
The Tribe recently became the first sovereign tribe to qualify on their own for federal disaster funds to aid in the reconstruction.
