Can anyone tell me what I might find for traveling and staying in the Grand Canyon area this time of the year. Looking at a couple of days around April 19 - 20th. Appears the only park open at this time is Grand Canyon Camper Village. Any knowledge of this park? Suggest reservations?
Thank you

Here's a link to Grand Canyon Trailer Village.

The spaces there will accomodate a 40 footer. We stayed there in '05 and were OK with our 39' Suncruiser.

I don't suppose it will be terribly crowded in mid-April but it might be wise to ask about reservations anyway.

Also, try the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park in Williams Arizona. Great park and lots of services within walking distance. Then you can take the Railway into the park right to the rim of the Grand Canyon. Lots of fun.......

Thanks to all for your replies and suggestions. We have decided to stay in Williams and take the train (something different). I have to learn how to use the resource capacity of the Internet better! Again, thanks to all.

I know you will have a great time. While you are so close, try to go down to Sedona, Arizona for a couple of nights. It is also one of those "magical" places everyone must see in their lifetime......

89A is too twisty, I agree! Just take I17 from Kingman down to 179 and then back up to Sedona. We had no problems and I avoid narrow roads like the plague.

It actually is a little longer in miles but way-shorter in time that way. I wouldn't miss Sedona if I was within only 100 miles.........

One of my favorite places to photograph is just north of GC on 89 just outside a town called Page. The place is called Antelope Canyon. I do not remember 89 being very twisty between Flagstaff and Page but although my memory is very good, it is also very short! There is an Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon and they are across the highway from each other. Both are on Navajo land and thus an entry fee. Each has a different feel and experience. I can fill you in more should you get the bug to go there. Below are a couple of images I made in those canyons.
