The newly expanded visitor parking area at the Horseshoe Bend Overlook South of Page, AZ, is now open to the public. The parking lot had been closed during the daytime hours in early 2018 to facilitate completion of the construction before peak tourist season in Northern Arizona.
Visitors to the Horseshoe Bend Overlook will be required to pay entrance fees determined by City of Page Resolution #1224-19, effective immediately, as follows:
*commercial and touring vehicle fees are determined by vehicle size, not number of passengers it is carrying
The above fees may be subject to change without notice.
There is absolutely no parking anywhere along Highway 89! This is a 65 mph highway, and those who attempt to park on the shoulder will be ticketed and towed. The City of Page has passed also an emergency ordinance prohibiting passenger drop-offs and pickups at the Horseshoe Bend entrance or along the Highway 89 corridor.
Those planning trips to Page, AZ, and Horseshoe Bend are reminded that if they find all official parking areas to be full at the time of their visit, they will be required to return at another time when they can find available space. Parking on the side of US89 is strictly prohibited. Those who do so risk having their vehicle towed and incurring fines. The Horseshoe Bend Overlook is busiest between the hours of 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM when day visitors from Las Vegas, Phoenix, Flagstaff, and other gateway communities are arriving and departing.
