I wanted to post this as so many people are interested in visiting Havasu Falls and there can be a great deal of confusion about the process.
This year, there are some major changes to the Havasu Falls reservation system. Permits will again become available on February 1st, but now payment will be required at the time the reservation is made. Payment in full can be made using a Visa or MasterCard. The permits/reservations are non-transferrable and non-refundable. I saw this change reported on a different forum and called the Camping Office this morning to confirm. I just spoke with an employee there who confirmed the above information.
Prices have gone up from last year as well though I don't have all of those details. You will get that information if you call in February. There are no changes to the Lodge reservation system that I am aware of. Good changes!!Edited: 10 January 2017, 22:24
