Last time I visited the Grand Canyon was close to 20 years ago for a 1 night stay. Except for being awed by it I remember very little else so staying here 4 nights has been a good experience. Checked in at Trailer Village on Thursday, April 25. Nice campground with full hookups. I’m in row L, last row, which is great because across from me is a very nice park like area for walking the dogs. Some shade, no underbrush and lots of woodchips in places, it smells great! Have to keep my eyes open though because there are lot of elk cows around and they mosey everywhere.
Several years ago Grand Canyon NP started a free shuttle bus service with stopping points at all the overlooks and places of interest. There are 3 routes, a central one that connects to the east & west ones which go out along the canyon rim and stop at the various overlooks. One of the stops is at the campground entrance, very convenient. They run 12 and 15 minutes apart so hopping off and on is really easy with no long waits. Except for a few of the overlooks on the east end of the canyon there is no need to drive at all. Very handy! It remnds me of staying at Ft. Wilderness in WDW with their shuttle service, have t wonder if they used that as a model. I did go out of the park on Sat. 4-27, to the small town of Tusayan to see the Imax movie at the National Geographic center, well worth the trip.
