  • Incredible views and photo opportunities. the unnamed pullout areas are great also. Prepare to stop often.  more »
  • We went here to see the Grand Canyon at sunset. Absolutely amazing view. Don't miss this viewpoint. So many beautiful photos.  more »
  • It is strange to stand and look down into a hole so deep. Here down pokes the oldest part of the world up to the surface, some one million years, I do not remember how many.

  • So wonderful. We we're pleasantly surprised by how well the Grand Canyon is structured regarding parking lots, RV parking, restrooms and the guiding staff that is very friendly and easy to find. Beautiful scenery. A must-see!
  • Beautiful scenic overlook. Worth the stop. Sad story of the hotel that was once there.
  • Great view and trail is very good. Not as well maintained as the South Kaibab or Bright Angel, but the views are very good, particularly of the river.
  • I proposed to my wife here because it's so perfect. You can see (what seems to be) the whole canyon from here. There is also a trail that goes down into the canyon. This is a must see!
  • Beautiful views. A spectacular place to take some memorizing photos.

Where to stay in Grand Canyon National Park

You'll find plenty of options if you want to stay inside Grand Canyon National Park. Most campgrounds and lodges sit around the South Rim area, and they tend to fill up quickly for summer visits, so book as far in advance as possible. The price range for lodge accommodations varies greatly, so there's something for nearly every budget. The less-visited North Rim features one lodge. For those who hike to the bottom of the canyon, dormitories and cabins are available at Phantom Ranch. If you can't secure a place in the park or find something there to your liking, the small village near the south entrance offers inns and economy motels. You’ll have the convenience of nearby restaurants if you stay there.
