Notes:  

  • Saguaro National Park West - OPEN. All roads, picnic areas and hiking trails are open. Visitor information, restrooms and retail from Western National Parks Association are available in the visitor center from 8am until 2pm. Both visitor centers will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Comfort stations in picnic areas are open and water is available on visitor center patios. Visitor centers are at limited capacity of 10 people due to CDC and public health guidance in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Visitors who are looking to shop or receive information may be asked to wait in line until the building is under capacity. Public programs are cancelled. Fees are being collected at fee collection stations, honor pay stations and online. In order to reduce cash handling and contact time, park visitors are encouraged to pay park fees online before they visit. More information about how to pay entrance fees prior to arriving. Recreate responsibly and slow the spread by maintaining a 6' physical distance between you and others. Recreate with those who live with you and follow local public health guidance. Please wear face coverings to protect those around you when 6' distancing is difficult.  Crowding at trailheads and parking areas is likely. Please start your hike early to avoid the crowd and the heat. Please do not park outside of designated parking areas.
  • Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum - OPEN. Tickets are sold online only.
  • Old Tucson - CLOSED. Due to an ongoing change in management, expect Old Tucson to reopen no sooner than late 2021.
  • Marana Visitor Center - OPEN. Stop in to pick up maps and information or ask for recommendations for places to eat. We'd be happy to see you!
