Choose the bus tour to Grand Canyon from Vegas is an easy way to explore the place.The Grand Canyon Lodge and Cabins is the sole in-park accommodation on the North Rim.Only about ten percent of the Grand Canyon's five million annual visitors go to the North Rim,but lodging at the Grand Canyon Lodge is still in greater demand than supply.Make your reservations early,as much as 13 months in advance,to stay at the historic Grand Canyon Lodge's main motel-style facility or its many cabins.
The Grand Canyon Lodge offers 174 cabins in three different models:Frontier,Western and Pioneer cabins sleep 3,4 and 5 adults respectively.In addition,40 motel-style rooms are available.A comfortable,casual accommodation,this National Historic Landmark features timbered ceilings and limestone walls that harmonize with the landscape of the surrounding Kaibab Plateau.
If you are traveling by recreational vehicle,or RV,to the Grand Canyon,you too can stay inside the park at the National Park's Trailer Village.Located near Market Plaza and Yavapai Lodge,Trailer Village provides full hookups(electrical,cable,water and sewage)and pull-through,paved sites for vehicles up to 50 feet long.Just a half-mile walk to the Grand Canyon's edge,Trailer Village is well-located to all the sights and conveniences of the park and Market Plaza,and each site features a picnic table and barbecue grill to add to your camping fun.
KACHINA LODGE AND THUNDERBIRD LODGE
These two contemporary lodges are located between Bright Angel Lodge and El Tovar Hotel,within a short walk of the neighboring lodges.Situated on the edge of the South Rim,Kachina and Thunderbird Lodges are a perfect choice for families and groups.Half of the rooms at Kachina and Thunderbird have at least partial canyon views.These are the ideal accommodations for visitors who want to wake up to the sights of the Grand Canyon before numbers of other visitors descend upon the park.
