  • 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.

  • This was our second to last stop along the Desert View Drive. Really stunning views and perspective of the Canyon. You get a good sense of the visible length of the park. Definitely stop along the way...  more »
  • Navajo Point is a great place to see the Desert View Watchtower with the canyon is the background. It's easy to get to and well worth stopping to get pictures.  more »

  • Awesome viewpoint! In my opinion, this is one of the better viewpoints of the canyon.
  • Beautiful location. Last viewpoint heading east before Desert View.
  • All of the Grand Canyon south rim is wonderful, but having take the Desert View tour with Zantarra the area to the east of the village was particularly wonderful.
  • Nice overview! Many tourists but totally worth it!
  • Both Navajo and Lipan point had greats views and the highest you're gonna get on the south rim. Was great watching sunset and thunderstorms in the distance.

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.
