 In Park Camping, South Rim

 

 
Trailer Village Campground is open year round.  All campsites have full hookups for both 20 and 30 Amp receptacles,  a dump station, a laundry (for a fee), full service store, ice, and potable water.  RV's up to 40 feet in length can be accommodated.  All 80 sites are pull-through, and tent campers are also allowed to use this facility.

Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.  Registration is done at the entrance to Trailer Village Campground.  No ground fires are allowed and the gathering of firewood is against park regulations.  Pets are allowed at the campsite, but must be kept on a leash at Grand Canyon National Park, Stock Photograph, ClickArt, Broderbund Software all times and are not allowed on hiking trails.  No more than two vehicles are allowed per site, and no more than three tents are allowed per site.  Firearms and fireworks are not permitted anywhere in the park.

Maximum stay is limited to seven days in a row, and 30 days in a season.  The quiet hours are from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM, however the area ravens are not required to follow this regulation; and if you like to sleep in ear plugs are a good idea!  Campers should be aware that due to the altitude the park can get cold at night, even during summer months, and should equip accordingly.  Fees are $20 per night for two and an additional $1.75 per person.  The maximum number of people that can stay in a site is six, unless they are all from the same family.

Trailer Village Campground is located at Grand Canyon Village, about five miles north of the South Gate.  It is walking distance to the General Store, Bank, The Grand Canyon Visitors Center, and the Mather Amphitheater, and adjacent to the Mather Campground.

Finally, the Desert View Campground is open from mid-May to mid-October.  There are 50 campsites on a first-come-first-serve self-registration basis.  None of the campsites have hookups, and there is not a dump station or showers.  A limited store, ice, toilets, and potable water are available.  RV's up to 40 feet in length can be accommodated.

No ground fires are allowed.  Pets are allowed at the campsite, but must be kept on a leash at all times and are not allowed on hiking trails.  No more than two vehicles are allowed per site, and no more than three tents are allowed per site.  Firearms and fireworks are not permitted anywhere in the park.

Desert View Campground is located 26 miles east of Grand Canyon Village, just past the East Entrance.  There are no hiking trails in the immediate area, although there is a watchtower, a trading post, general store, and a bookstore.  A service station is also within walking distance of the campground.

There are evening programs that start at 7:30 PM at the Sage Loop Campfire Circle, at 8:30 PM at the Mather Amphitheater, and at 9:00 PM on selected evenings at Mather Point.  None of the campsites are close to major hiking trails, but both the Mather Campground and Trailer Village are in the heart of the action on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
