  • One of the stops on the Red Route along the Rim trail. Take it all in. It is a photographer's delight.
  • One of the best overlooks! Take the bus here and take a 1 mile hike to the Mojave stop.
  • Any view is great!
  • Great views. We walked the rim trail and this is a good view point of the canyon.
  • This was my favorite view on the south rim. I sat here for an hour and just gazed at the sights.

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.
