Grand Canyon recommendations

Hi there. We are looking to travel to Grand Canyon with our two teenage girls. So needless to say, we like full hook-ups.
Any advice on Grand Canyon? I can't find anything that is in the park that has sewer.
Does anyone have any recommendations? Would be greatly appreciated.

Following this thread as we are thinking of going to the White Sands desert, then Carls Bad, & the Grand Canyon. I am concerned this may be too many stops but I'd also appreciate feedback on timing & places to stay. Our time frame will be after 5/15.

Thanks
Jane & Scott

Also interested, but won't be this year for us. I remember Carlsbad Caverns when I was about 4 or 5 years old. On my list for sure.

We did grand canyon about 10 years ago with the kids (not camping). We brought our bikes, and it was really nice. You could put your bikes on the bus bike rack, take the bus to the end of the south rim road, and then ride back along the road on your bikes. The road is closed to primary traffic. Only busses and folks in their own cars who need disability access are on the road. It was really fun.

We did the Grand Canyon in 2000 and we stayed within the park. We also did the helicopter tour of the canyon, I still remember the ride. The pilot comes in low to the edge of the canyon as we go off the edge your stomach sinks as if you had made a big drop.

I remember the park had full hook-ups, it was no more than a parking lot, but very convenient to all attractions on the south side of canyon.

I believe I might have found the only option. Travelers Village. Anyone ever stayed there?

Never heard of Travelers Village. There is Grand Canyon Trailer Village at Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim. I haven't stayed there but visited there in October. We walked around the campground to check it out and it was a typical RV campground...packed in sites, but some sites are much better than others. Nice to have hookups though, and the location is excellent. Fairly close to the main attractions and services. A great place to ride bikes too!

There are several campgrounds in/near the Grand Canyon. Use Google Earth and SEARCH for "Campgrounds near Grand Canyon National Park, AZ".

Link to details on campgrounds inside the park: Campgrounds - Grand Canyon National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Regarding White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, NM, there is no camping inside the national monument. For details, see: White Sands National Monument (U.S. National Park Service)

In Alamogordo, don't miss the following:

We stayed in Williams,AZ 1 time with a hotel package deal and took the Grand Canyon Train to the park.

The next time we stayed in an rv park in Williams and took the train and tour bus package to,from and the bus in the park. We also used Williams as a base to explore Flagstaff and points around RT 66.

To me, that's the best and most fun way to get to the Park, at least the first time you visit. Stay in Williams and take the train, even if it's just for one night in a lodge. Then, after returning to Williams via the train, take your AS into the park and camp. Best of both worlds.

The RV park within Grand Canyon south rim is a full hookup park. Take bikes. No cars allowed on rim road.

Goulding's Lodge up at Monument Valley has a full hookup campground.
155 miles of very scenic roads.
Also there are parking spaces for MHs in a few places at Grand Canyon.

Trailer Village is within the park on the South Rim. They have W/E/S and cable TV hookups. There is a shuttle stop at the entrance so you can access the entire park without driving. Having bikes is a plus for getting around also as stated above.

How about Jacob Lake? We stayed at Kaibab Camper Village there and it was quite nice - not too far from the North Rim, though it's a long way from anything else. Kaibab Camper Village | Grand Canyon North Rim camping for RVs, trailers, tents, cabin room at Jacob Lake, Arizona
