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.

  • We left Vegas at 8am and got there around 12 noon. At first I was skeptical of the drive for just a day trip, but was I wrong. I highly recommend making this day trip. Canyon is so huge and undescriba...  more »

  • 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.
