There is an RV Park with full hookups inside the park near the big hotel and the train station. Location, Location, Location. We had a big buck wandering around the camp one night we were there.

We always dry camp at the Grand Canyon and have a favorite site that our 30 footer just fits into.

Painted Desert/Petrified Forest is pretty nice.

We Stayed at the Grand Canyon Camper Village in Tusayan. i was very happy with the place, it was too open and dusty and the service was slow

Just made a booking for late May at the Trailer Village in the park. $37 and change a night for full hook-ups and cable. Normally we would stay next door for $6 a night, but I'm jut getting over an abdominal operation, so don't want to do any lifting with the blue boy.

If you can't wake up with a smile on your face, go to bed with a coat hanger in your mouth!!
