where men cry upon arrival
Yes, it's everything you'd imagine and more. The Grand Canyon is one of seven natural wonders of the world and believe us, it's definitely worthy of that claim. What we love about this place is the diversity of adventures you can choose. Hiking is not a requirement, but we think the canyon is best viewed from inside it. Always bring water, and remember, what goes down must come up.
the south rim & watchtower
Car camping at the Grand Canyon can sometimes be difficult, as the beauty of the canyon attracts millions of visitors a year. That's why we recommend Desert View Campground. It's just enough off the path to provide seclusion, and it hosts the best sunrise spot in the park. Also close by is the watchtower, a stone edifice that provides wild views of the peaks, canyons and river. We recommend all campers do their research prior to ensure a reservation.
