Camping at Trailer Village, Grand Canyon, Arizona

When we decided to come to the Grand Canyon (South Rim) a couple months ago, we debated whether to boondock (camp without hook-ups, for those non-RV’ers out there) or go to Trailer Village where we could get full hook-ups. Well, as you can see by the title, we chose full hook-ups and we are thrilled we did, since we woke to 14-degrees this morning ~ brrrrrrr!!!! (We are enjoying our electric heater immensely!!)

Trailer Village is run by Xanterra, a private concessionaire. It is only ½ mile from the rim of the Grand Canyon, is on the shuttle route (the National Park Service has free shuttles to get form place to place) and has over 50 full hook-up sites, including cable (much to Brad’s delight). All sites are pull-though, there are restrooms, and recycling. There is no WiFi, but the National Park Service has WiFI at it’s administrative offices and library. When we checked-in, the staff was very nice, and the entire “village” is well-kept and clean. There are a few trees, and while we ate lunch, three deer meandered by while grazing the new grass.

The Grand Canyon is truly grand. We love it and have been there so many times over the years. The last visit (three years ago)was to the North Rim around Christmas time.

We've never stayed at Trailer Village, but maybe next time.

Your initial picture is truly beautiful! You have excellent sharp focus for the entire shot. What kind of camera do you use?

Thanks for the compliment! We use a SONY DSC-H2. It's a couple years old, so I'm not sure if they're still out there.
