Day Trips from Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon as a whole is located in a rather remote part of northern Arizona, and the surrounding areas of interest to tourists are not limited to the Rims of the canyon alone. It's important to understand the massive swath of land that is Grand Canyon National Park and the surrounding plateau; visitors' should expect to do at least 2–8 hours of driving round-trip their from departure point to the most popular Grand Canyon destinations. Look for lodging in areas inside and outside of the park, radiating outward in towns like Tusayan, Williams, Flagstaff, Sedona, Las Vegas and Scottsdale. Most tours disembark from these cities, too, and offer pick-up from area hotels and lodging. Visitors greatly benefit from the outlying areas' additional attractions, restaurants, services, nightlife and entertainment. Familiarize yourself with the small towns like Williams and Tusayan and medium-to-large cities like Las Vegas, Sedona and Flagstaff, and all they have to offer.

We are a family-owned RV park near the east entrance to Grand Canyon National Park and only 20 minutes north of Flagstaff, Arizona. Our family -- Adam, Shelley, Zoe, Ava, and Cairo -- purchased the RV park in 2021. The property was a trading post for decades but had fallen into disrepair. We have been busy painting, cleaning and improving the grounds to become a comfortable oasis for your family. Our location on US Hwy 89 is only a few miles from the breathtaking aspens of Lockett Meadow, the ruins of Wupatki National Monument and the lava flows at Sunset Crater. The park is a short drive to downtown Flagstaff, and on the way to Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Moab and Durango. Stay the night or as long as you like!
