Grand Canyon National Park

One cannot hardly visit Prescott and not visit the Grand Canyon. It’s majesty will overwhelm you as you take in the huge expanse of powerful and moving scenery.

  • Located in Northern Arizona. 
  • Explore the Canyon on one of the many designated trails, extend your adventure with a river trip down the Colorado River and an overnight camping trip.

What can I see/do at the Grand Canyon National Park?

  • Hiking: Shirts that boast “I survived the Grand Canyon!” exist for a reason. Though shorter trails exist, some of the most strenuous hiking in the state of Arizona exists within the Grand Canyon. Adequate water and food consumption are absolutely necessary to the success of any Grand Canyon hike, especially in the summer when temperatures can soar. A slower pace and a good mindset are also paramount. 
  • River Trips: Three different options exist for those visitors interested in river trip opportunities through the Grand Canyon National Park. From half-day trips to full 18-day commercial river trips, anyone interested in this sort of adventure is sure to find their perfect match. 
  • Sightseeing: No one can deny that the Grand Canyon is an amazingly beautiful site. And with the introduction of the Sky Walk on the West Rim in 2007, visitors now have just one more way to take in the grandeur of one of the natural wonders of the world. 
  • Camping: Extend your stay just a little longer by camping at the Canyon. There are two main campgrounds, the Mather Campground on the South Rim and the North Rim Campground. Mather Campground allows for tent and RV camping, pets and there is laundry and showers located nearby for a fee. The North Rim Campground has a dump station within the campground and coin-operated laundry and showers located within the campground.
