We spent a few days there last year. We knew it would be something, but when we walked up to that ledge by the old hotel for the first time, it was wow! Breathtaking. The human history there is also fascinating. I like the comfort of the old Park hotels, have dinner and sit on the porch. We'll be going back again.

Hi from AZ. . . we love the North Rim of the canyon. . . it's only open May 15 to Oct 15, but it's less crowded & a totally different place. Same canyon of course, just several different views are possible. Lodge dining room is great, cabins with no tv or cell service & a no hook-up campground. It's a fair drive for us (we have to go AROUND the canyon) but I really like the drive past Marble Canyon, Vermillion Cliffs & Jacob Lake. . . check it out, Craig

We have the North rim on the todo destination list. Looks like leaving the trailer on the way in is a likely plan. Any camp grounds you would avoid?

Thanks for alternate attraction points. Worth a look. Appreciate that info.

The Canyon is really fantastic. One of our pictures was the screen saver I used at work. A nice diversion while waiting for folks to show up. Trevel safe. Pat

I think dropping off the trailer, while exploring in the southwest, is basically a must if you want to experience most of the rustic places. But I don't think that The Grand Canyon is one of the destinations that it's hard to bring a trailer to.

There are a variety of types of campgrounds in the area…some free.

It is not a desire to experience the rustic old Southwest, but rather the desire for a park with a full hookup accommodation and the inventory seems to be a bit limited. Jacob Lake looks to be the closest to the North Rim. But it never hurts to ask. If the route in had an alternate exit, we might take Glimmer with us. Since there is only one way in and out, spending two nights in Jacob Lake would be the plan. Pat
