Canyonlands National Park

Superintendent Name: 
Tony Schetzsle
Welcome to Canyonlands National Park's colorful landscape, which has eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River and its tributaries. The rivers divide the park into four districts, including the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze and the rivers themselves. While these areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, each retains its own character and offers different opportunities for exploration.
