Expect crowds during the spring, summer, and fall months. During these months reservations for camping and lodging are essential.
When visiting the South Rim, be sure to go to Canyon View Information Plaza, there you will find information to help plan your Grand Canyon visit.
Consider visiting the North Rim as an alternative. The crowds are smaller and the views are just as spectacular. You will miss the nice new Visitor Center that is on the South Rim, but the Grand Canyon Lodge is a must see. Dining in the dining room is the Lodge is also a great experience.
Motels and Hotels fill up quickly around the Grand Canyon, so if travelling by car, get a room early in the day before it is too late. Travelling along the South Rim is a great way to see the Grand Canyon as there are numerous lookouts along the highway to get spectacular views and to see the Colorado River as you drive easterly.
