As most RVers know, finding a campground inside a national park with full hookups is rare. That’s why Trailer Village RV Park on the Grand Canyon’s South Rim is such a gem. This campground is the only one in the park with full hookups, plus the location can’t be beat. Your campsite will be walking distance from the canyon’s rim in addition to the South Rim Village which is home to a visitor center and theater, bicycle rentals, a café, a bookstore and more. From South Rim Village it’s also easy to hop on the park’s free shuttle which will bring you to various viewpoints and trailheads throughout the park so you don’t have to worry about finding a parking space for your RV.
Trailer Village offers pull-through, paved sites for rigs up to 50 feet in length. Each site features a picnic table, barbecue grill, 30 and 50 amp electrical service, cable TV and water and sewage hookups. Wood fires aren’t allowed, but charcoal is permitted. Tucked in the trees, many campsites have shade and designated quiet hours mean you’ll get to experience the peace and quiet of the desert all night long. When the sun rises, take a stroll with your coffee to see if any elk have decided to visit the campground. They tend to be frequent guests.
Trailer Village is adjacent to the Mather Campground and Camper Services is nearby offering coin-operated showers, laundry facilities and vending machines. A dump station (closed during the winter months) is located near Mather Campground. Pets are allowed, but must be leashed at all times, and may not be left unattended. Pets aren’t allowed on trails in the Grand Canyon, so it’s probably best to leave your furry friends at home so you can explore the park.
The South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is open year-round and so is Trailer Village RV Park. Pack warm layers for winter camping, as the campground sits at 7,047 feet in elevation so mornings and evenings can be quite chilly.
