Grand Canyon: Mather vs Trailer Village
I've searched here and other places and I'm not getting exactly what I want.
We are planning on staying in the Grand Canyon next July over the 4th. We will stay there 4 days and 5 nights.
I'm not a fan of private CGs and spend most of my time in forested USFS CGs. As such, the look, feel, and layout of Mather is much preferred to me. However, it doesn't have any amenities. And, I absolutely hate listening to all of these generators that are supposedly whisper quiet ... which would be present in large numbers to overcome the lack of power.
Trailer Village has electricity, so I could run A/C. I'd also have lights and other nice features (like watching a movie with the kids). Water and sewer are nice, but I generally don't use so much water that I'd fill my tanks in only 4 days. But, the layout is the rack'em and stack'em design with very limited space to sit around the campfire and such. Trees look limited to the perimeter. It looks like a parking lot to me.
I'm 90% convinced to go with Trailer Village so that I have conveniences of power, even if it means sacrificing scenery.
Anyone have any first-hand experience with both CGs? Thoughts?
Also, is there room at the Trailer Village sites to sit around and have a campfire?
