National Parks and Vicinity

Accommodation in the Vicinity of National Parks

As many of the National Parks are located beyond a reasonable distance from the major cities it is important to consider where to stay. In many cases there are limited options hence it pays to plan ahead.

Grand Canyon – South Rim


There is a range of accommodation available within the National Park itself with some being situated directly on the rim of the canyon. More detail of the in park options is described here. Note that within peak season it will be difficult if not impossible to secure lodging within the park itself at short notice. It is however, always worth checking for cancellations.

Outside of the park the closest accommodation is situated in Tusayan which is one mile south of the park entrance on US64.  Visiting the park from here can either be by car or there is a National Park shuttle bus which runs from May to September every 15 minutes during the day. Journey time to the rim is 20 minutes.

Lodging options include the following

Best Western Grand Canyon Squire Inn

Canyon Plaza Resort

Red Feather Lodge
