The Grand Canyon is a MUST-SEE destination for the American RVer. But making the trip to this remote and rugged location takes good planning. Here’s our list of great RV parks to make your Grand Canyon vacation an unforgettable stay!

Where To RV Camp at the Grand Canyon

Mather Campground at the South Rim

This well-shaded campground is inside the park and is run by the National Park Service. It allows RVs up to 30 feet in length, but some sites have smaller allowances. There are flush toilets but no hookups. Visit to make reservations for the peak months. Winter booking is on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Trailer Village RV Park at the South Rim

The other RV campground inside the park can accommodate larger RVs and has full hookups. Get the Bed and Breakfast Package and receive a daily breakfast at the Yavapai Dining Hall.


Grand Canyon Camper Village RV Park & Campground

One mile south of the park entrance in Tusayan, Arizona, is an RV park with water and electric hookups. Restaurants, shops, and an IMAX theater are within walking distance.


Desert View Campground

The east entrance of the Grand Canyon at Desert View has a small campground that can host smaller RVs and trailers. It’s 22 miles from Grand Canyon Village and is open from April 15th through October 15th. There are no hookups at this more remote campground, but it has the historic Desert View Watchtower, the Tusayan Museum, and some of the best views of the Colorado River from the Grand Canyon rim. Don’t forget to look up at night!


RV Parks in Williams, AZ

Williams, Arizona, just 55 miles south of the Grand Canyon, is a mountain town called “The Gateway to the Grand Canyon.” The historic Route 66 town has its own attractions, like Wild West Junction, Bearizona Drive-Thru Wildlife Park, Elephant Rocks Golf Course, and many shops and restaurants. The biggest perk of staying in Williams is the Grand Canyon Railway. The train takes passengers through the scenic ponderosa forest and desert and into the park while entertaining them with Wild West actors and musicians. 

Grand Canyon Railway RV Park

The train depot, hotel, and RV park focus on the nostalgia of the old west while providing full hookups to all sizes of motorhomes and trailers year-round. RVers can also enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub of the adjacent hotel. Fido can enjoy the Pet Resort while the family treks up to the park for the day.


Railside RV Ranch

Railside RV Ranch is another Williams campground close to the Railway that has full hookups and easy access to the train. Railside RV Ranch also has a fitness center, game room, playground, and a dog wash station.



If KOAs are your favorite places to stay, there are two in Williams. Grand Canyon/Journey KOA campground can host RVs of any size and is only open from March through October. Enjoy full hookups, a pool, hot tub, rec room, gourmet coffee bar, and bike rentals while staying here.

Circle Pines KOA on I-40 in Williams is open all year and has sites with a variety of hookup options. This campground has an indoor heated pool, hot tub, horseback riding, and go-karts.
