Looking to make our first trip next summer to the Grand Canyon area. My 3 adult kids and their families will be going with us so we will have a total of 4 trailers and 6 grandkids ages 2 to 12. Prefer to have full hookups, but am open to ideas. Anyone have any recommendations they could share. Thanks!

H E R E - Trailer Village is the place to be, for what you're looking for. Inside the park, full hookups, within walking distance to shops and restaurants, and a shuttle stop at the entrance to get you any place you want to go in the South Rim area. Park and forget about having to drive anywhere. Shuttle can do it and there's no charge.

Make reservations as soon as you have a firm date of arrival, and do that as soon as possible, to make reservations NOW so you're more likely to get spaces that are in close proximity.

Thanks for the info. My next question is...are there plenty of things do if we stay for a week or are we going to be bored after 2 or 3 days? Trying to decide if we want to stay a week there or stay a few days and then move on to a different location like Bryce National Park.

A timely topic.....I just booked 6 nights at Trailer Village for April and I guess I share your questions about occupying those days. My feeling is to just take your time as you visit each area....on those darn bus/train tours you are always rushed( we did enjoy the GC Train out of Williams though). Either way, enjoy your time at the Canyon!

The park’s attraction is the canyon. If you can entertain yourselves, travel to the different views, hike part way down and watch the colors change, you’ll be fine. If you need amusements, a week is too long inside the park.

Depends on your predilections, there is more than enough to do if you get out and hike the trails, ride your bikes, look at the overlooks and otherwise get out of your RVs. You can even drive down to the river. If you mainly hang around the RV that would depend on your crowd.

Oh yeaah, it could be distinctly on the warm side by June.

We definitely aren’t the type of family that hangs out at the RV all day. We like to be out doing things and site seeing. We do enjoy camp fires and playing games in the evening. I’m not sure AZ in July will warrant a campfire, but A/C and games might be in order. We just don’t want to book someplace for a week and after 3 days we’ve done and seen everything there is to do within 30 miles of our camp site. Thanks again for the feedback.

As beautiful as the canyon is, my opinion 3-4 days is enough. One day checking the east side from the camping and hotel areas. And another on the west side. A couple days for everything else. The overlooks are amazing. But really they are all very similar, but from different perspectives.

And I agree. Getting spaces for four trailers in prime tourist season you better do it ASAP.
