Going out west in February. Is Mather the only place to stay for a night to see the Grand Canyon? Any other suggestions? KOA is closed for rebuilding.

One idea would be to camp in Williams, AZ and take the train to the Grand Canyon. There is a fairly nice-looking campground right adjacent to the Grand Canyon Railway station. It would depend on how much time you wanted to spend at the canyon.

paz may have the best idea. That time of year, one needs to take the weather into consideration.

We stay in the park at Trailer Village. The sites are kind of beat up, but they have utilities, and the shuttle busses in the park make driving unnecessary.

Bill Davis and others. Isn't there a dry camping area just South of the park? The Grand Canyon National Park Visitor's Guide covers everything.

There is a campground quite a bit closer. Perhaps Grand Canyon Camper Village. Don't overlook the opportunity to drive to Sedona if you have the time.
