We stayed at Grand Canyon Village for a week in May. We first came to the grand canyon in 1995 when we rode the train from Williams. We didn't get to see much of the canyon but, this trip we saw all of the south rim thanks to camping at the Travel Village. We made our reservations on line which I am not a fan of but, this time it came off without a hitch. The greeter at the gate was friendly and helpful. We were able to find our spot with no problem. The space was perfect for my 40 ft. rig. The hookups were in working order and in the right location. There was a table but, unfortunately there are no campfires in the full hook up area. Strangely there are campfires in the tent area and on the last day there was a forest fire from those camps.. go figure, they have no water on site to put the campfires out unlike the full hook ups. There is plenty of room between camping spots. The location is close to a market and post office. Eating out for dinner is not easy. The only ones are at the Village a distance away and not that good of food. You can however drive into town where there are plenty of restaurants. There is no wifi but, our Verizon hot spot worked for us. There are spots for RV's where trees do not interfere with your satellite. The location of the camp ground is close to the south rim of the canyon. You can walk, drive or take the free shuttles from the campground. You can walk all of the south rim or take a shuttle to each point of view. You can also walk down to the canyon floor or ride a mule. This is a nice park. The only con is that some people don't know park etiquette and walk through your camp instead of following the roads. I take into consideration that this park gets people from all over the world and a lot of them rent rv's. We will be back again with family and friends. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go see the free movie about the Grand Canyon at the visitors center before you explore the canyon. It will give you a whole different appreciation of where you're at. Hike Mather Point to Hermits Rest to see every awesome view possible. There are free shuttle buses along the way if you get tired. Check the canyon out at dawn, noon and sundown to get the best out of your trip.

This RV park is more than satisfactory for visiting Grand Canyon. This is the one that has full hookups including cable TV. Sites are spaced fairly close, but we have seen a lot worse. There is a picnic table and some room between sites. The park has a few trees. We would definitely come here again to see Grand Canyon. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This RV park is run by a concessioner, not the NPS. Built up a hill, nearly everybody had levellers in use.

There is no shower in this park. You can walk/drive over to the NPS Mather CG 1/2 mile away for that.

WiFi is pokey, at least from the top of the park.

Restrooms are really kept nice and clean.

Digital cable, about 50 channels, was also really good.

So, it's in the National Park, a short walk or shuttle bus ride to Mather Point.

No showers, pokey WiFi, 6. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The sites are a little closer than I would prefer and leveling is a must in most of them. However, there are so few campgrounds in the National Park system that provides full hookups, it was nice to have them here. AT&t cell service is poor to non-existent but the proximity to the various canyon overlooks is easy by either the shuttle, your toad or your pickup. I would stay here again.

Very convenient to shuttle and tourist areas. Sites are narrow, some have decent space between them and others don't. Our space was small and not level. Although they knew we had a big rig we were assigned a space which was extremely narrow and was constricted on both sides by concrete curbs. If our neighbor hadn't run out to help we would have busted a rim on the 6" right side curb. Anyone with a similar problem (big fifth wheel with long tow vehicle), make sure you don't get site #64. Many of the other sites would be fine. Registration and check-out were awful, mainly due to their "upgraded" dinosaur of a computer system, but also due to one employee who shouldn't be in that job. The other two employees were great. We will probably never return to the area so will not have to grit our teeth and stay here again. The only thing that really makes it worthwhile is the convenience of being in the park. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is nice. No fancy amenities, but that is not needed at the Grand Canyon! We were there 3 nights. Easy to get around and trials to take hikes with the dogs. Would definitely stay again, and definitely recommend. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

You are not too far from the rim. They have a shuttle bus to get to far the view points. It is a short walk to the stop. If you want showers they are at Mather campground (coin operated). For Wi-Fi you have to go to the cafe by the market. The sites are paved and fairly level. Picnic table and BBQ. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Dec 1 to Feb 28 you can drive to Hermits Rest. The rest of the year you need to take the shuttle.

We really enjoyed this campground. It is nice and convenient to be inside the NP, and be able to ride the bus shuttle to different areas of the park. There is a nice market within walking distance of the campground. We were greeted by elk the day we pulled in and got set up. The sites are long and level, Verizon signal is decent, we were able to use our satellite, but there was also cable available. We will definitely return to this campground.....highly recommend!

Stayed here four nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. All sites are pull-through and fairly level. Fair amount of space between sites with a grill and picnic table. Our site did not have a cable TV hook up; with an antenna, we were able to get one station. Phone service was spotty throughout the entire Grand Canyon park. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this park. It is nothing fancy but it is so convenient to everything the Grand Canyon NP has to offer. Just a short walk to the shuttle service and paved walking paths. Mule deer and a single bull elk wandered through the park eating acorns. Lots of services within the park to take advantage of. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice RV park, with long, fairly level, pull-through sites. Very convenient to the shuttle bus and the Market Plaza - the ideal RV location in the National Park. Full hookups. No WiFi, no TV. No AT&T cellphone coverage. While Verizon coverage is strong in the historic Village, it is feeble in the RV park. My little MiFi hotspot displayed 1X or 3G, but it was running at dialup speeds. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Really nice campground. Nice level pull thru. Only warning I would have is for people with pets and small children. There are "wild" animals that roam through the campground. We had 3 bull elk with huge racks just mosey thru, eating grass and leaves right next to our campers. It's nice for close up photos, but remember, they are wild not tame animals.

Very Nice RV park. Highly recommend. Hard to believe this is a national park, rather than an RV resort. Check in was smooth and effortless. All sites were pull thru, many were shaded, but not so dense you couldn't set up a satellite. Hiking distance to grocery, PO, bank. Shuttle comes to RV park gate puts you on rim. Would definitely do it again. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Bathrooms were old but decent, water and hookups worked and sites are thoughtfully laid out. Long walk (or drive) to the Mather campground area for laundry and $2 pay showers that were clean with nice hot water. Free park bus shuttles are a great way to get around and see the sights without needing to drive your vehicle. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Recent reviews are still spot on. For a site in a national park, this was great! I had room to stay hooked up to my TV and I'm 53' nose to tail. Anything longer wouldn't fit. ATT signal was sporadic and 1 bar. Verizon had a weak 3G signal too. The east half of Trailer Village was junky long-term campers but I didn't see any transients assigned spots over there. This park (west side) was full almost every night so reservations are a must! We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with decent sized pull throughs. Shade trees on some sites. Location was main reason we stayed in the park. It did not disappoint being right in the Grand Canyon National Park just a few minutes away from the edge of the canyon. Canyon shuttle comes right to the entrance of the campground. Did not use facilities, were out exploring during the day. Will stay here again on our next visit. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
