Description: Trailer Village is the campground designated for RVs of all sizes inside the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. Reach the South Rim Park Entrance Station by driving about 60 miles North from the town of Williams on Highway 64 (Williams is about 25 miles West of Flagstaff, Arizona).

The Trailer Village campground is open all year round, and reservations may be made online at www.xanterra.com , or by phone at (888) 297-2757(advanced) or (928) 638-2631(same day). The fee is $24 per night for 2 people, as of May 2006. The Park entry fee is $25 (National Parks Pass for one year is $50 - do the math!).

The sites are all pull-throughs with full hookups, are kept clean, and are well spaced apart, allowing for some privacy. Each has a picnic table. Barbecue grilling with charcoal is allowed, but no open campfires are permitted. There is no cell phone or wifi coverage in the area; for those who need some sort of connection to the rest of the world, basic cable television hookups are available.

There are restrooms throughout the campground, and shower and laundry facilities at the nearby Mather Campground (for tent camping or boondocking - 30 foot length max) within walking distance, as well as a bus stop for the free seasonal Park shuttle that can take you to all areas of the South Rim (except down!). Pets must be kept on a leash when outside, and are not permitted on the shuttles.

Pros: Close to South Rim Trail, clean
Cons: Cold night time temperatures, no campfires

June 2006 - We have camped there twice on holiday weekends, and it has not been too crowded. We did make advance reservations both times.

Pros: Great evening ranger programs
Cons: Waiting lines for shuttle bus to Hermits Rest

The electrical boxes are new with the cable TV hook-up on the back side. When we there in Nov. of 05 the cable wasn't working, but it was on when this trip over Memorial day and is part of the $24 fee. You can also get 1 channel from Flagstaff over the air but reception is poor. The picture on the upper right is of a large raven drinking out of the water hook-up. We'll be back again next fall.

Pros: Power hookups were new
Cons: Good luck finding it

We had great difficulty finding the campground, In the parks governmental wisdom they decided that while they are taking 2 years to renovate the roads and recreation areas so they took all the signs down throughout the entire park to replace them last. Well this is a problem for those of us that have never been to the park. The signs for the RV part were only on the entrance to the RV park area, Smart move since there are 20 miles of road leading up to the area and not a single sigh to tell you if your even going in the right direction. They should have replaced the signs as they made new ones instead of ripping all of them down for 2 years and replacing them when they are finished.

Pros: Clean, walking distance to the south rim and shops, full hookups
Cons: No campfires whatsoever.

If you don't mind not having a campfire, this place is great.
