The 2019 Main Lottery is now accepting applications for calendar year 2019 noncommercial river trips. Lottery applications will be accepted through noon Mountain Standard Time on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, and the lottery drawing will take place by the end of that week. Applicants can log in after Friday, February 23, 2018 to find out if they won.
Eligible individuals may apply online at the weighted lottery web site (https://grcariverpermits.nps.gov). The following 468 dates will be available:
Note: Duplicate listings of dates indicate that two standard sized permits are available for the same date.
Lottery winners will have until noon Mountain Standard Time on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 to pay their trip deposits ($400 for standard sized trips, $200 for small sized trips).
We strongly recommended all lottery applications list at least one Potential Alternate Trip Leader (PATL). If the original trip leader becomes unable to go on the river trip, and there are no confirmed PATLs, the trip will be cancelled. PATLs can be added to a river trip by the trip leader only when submitting a lottery application; see Noncommercial River Trip Regulations for clarification.

You can request a new temporary password by clicking "Forgot my username and/or password" (located below the login box) when on the noncommercial river website (https://grcariverpermits.nps.gov). IMPORTANT: The worst time to request a password reset is during the first few hours after a lottery notification email has been sent. The email with your new temporary password will not go out until all lottery notification emails have been sent.
