To get from Las Vegas to the South Rim you have to go down to I-40 in Kingman, drive to Williams and then North to the Rim.

To get from rim to rim it's a 213 mile drive.
I was hoping there were some spots west of the south rim visitor area for boondocking. Doesnt sound like there is though

I believe they close the North Rim in the middle of October for the Winter and then open in May. Check it out. But the North Rim recieves some really severe weather. When Sue and I were there we made a few inquiries. The nice part of the North Rim, is there are fewer people.

The North Rim closes in October and I believe opens in May. It suffers from severe Winters.
