The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself. The powerful Colorado River formed the brilliant red canyon over millions of years, leaving behind a chasm as wide as 29 km (18 mi) and as deep as 1.6 km (1 mi). Ninety percent of visitors take in their vistas from the more accessible South Rim. Views from the less-crowded North Rim are reserved for those who either drive 354 km (220 mi) around the canyon or take the two-day hike down the south side and up the north side. Backpacking, pack mule trips, and river paddling, in addition to hiking, all offer views of the canyon from below. With eyes transfixed on the massive, colorful chasm, it can be easy to miss some of the 373 species of birds, including bald eagles, here. With our online itinerary creator, United States vacations can be built around trips to Grand Canyon National Park and other destinations in United States.

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.
