  • Lipan Point remains one of my favorites because, being decentralized to the East, does not suffer from the flooding typical of many view points South. Then, from here, the view is excellent being less subject to "game of shadows" typical of many other parts of the Grand Canyon because sweeter and degrading than other areas most inaccessible of G c. assoluatemte Deserves a stop!

  • Came here quite early in the morning - after having seen the sunset at the Grand Canyon village. I think it would have been even better here. Short drive from the rim drive. Worth the detour.  more »

  • Excellent view of painted desert. Don't skip this stop. Good place to see the sunset.
  • We watched sunset here and it was very good. Gets crowded so get there early for parking and a good spot.
  • Beautiful View from the south rim. Keep going to you get just before the desert tower. That is my favorite view point from the south rim
  • Amazing views as far as you can see. This is when you realize how truly small you are in the vast of Grand Canyon.
  • Amazing view you can have a better river view here. Easy to access.

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.
