Hi there! If you are unable to secure a reservation you are still able to visit the park to hike and view the well. We suggest continuing to check availability on the reservation website - all cancellations will be reflected there as soon as we receive them. If for some reason space opens up you will then be able to reserve. We do not have a wait list for swimming reservations and cannot admit people who show up at the gate without reservations.
