Lipan Point, Grand Canyon National Park

Check out the sights from one of the Grand Canyon's best viewpoints, Lipan Point. Located on the South Rim, the spot affords magnificent views of the Unkar Creek area in the inner canyon. Take binoculars and try to spot rafters on the river. The vantage point also serves as a trailhead for a long and fairly easy hike popular with tourists. Always exercise caution when entering the canyon due to dangerous weather and wildlife.

  • July 2017-The long ride on the South Bank of the Canyon continues with many scenic viewpoints. Helps us a lot the map that they delivered to the entry, given the complexity of the Park and its many attractions. I must say though that the spectacle of the view loses allure as, but only because it gets pretty monotonous. The heat is strong and you have to gear up properly!

  • We didn't stop at sunset but I understand why people recommend you do so. Lipan point provides sweeping views of the Canyon. Worth a short stop along your Desert View Drive  more »
  • It’s a little hard to describe the views of the Grand Canyon except to say they are breathtaking. We were very fortunate to have spectacular weather and no crowds at all. A must see.  more »

  • One of the best points to view the grand canyon. Just walk out on the point and see the beautiful views. Do your best to come early before sunrise to avoid crowds. late evening is another good time. Bring your camera.
  • The best point from the route we took at the canyon. I recommend swinging by this one.
  • Excellent view of painted desert. Don't skip this stop. Good place to see the sunset.
  • Gorgeous. I liked this point over others.
  • We watched sunset here and it was very good. Gets crowded so get there early for parking and a good spot.

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.
