Group Size Limits
The Monument has four Management Zones which are the primary tool for managing visitation and other uses in a manner that safeguards its vast array of natural and cultural resources.
Group size limits – unique to each zone – help preserve and enhance the variety of recreational opportunities available for your group. Larger groups and gatherings are accommodated closer to highways and secondary roads. In more remote areas, smaller groups can enjoy the undeveloped, primitive lands and experiences that are so rare in modern life.
Your cooperation in following established group size limits helps ensure that your group’s experience today is still available for your children, grandchildren and future generations. Our public lands require that everyone take responsibility for its care.
Please use the table and map below to plan your visit.
