Grand Canyon trip

for our second rv trip we are planning to go from Florida (Pensacola) to the Grand Canyon and back. Would like any information/suggestions on good/scenic routings plus rv campgrounds on or near the south and north rims. We plan to leave toward the end of September of this year with an open return. We loved our first rv trip - Florida, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia then back home to Port Charlotte, Florida. Have a 2007 fleetwood bounder 38p on a workhouse chassis. Thanks for any and all help and suggestions.

Trailer Village in Grand Canyon south rim is the closest place to camp to the canyon in an RV. We loved that location. We have also stayed at Grand Canyon Railroad RV park in Williams, AZ and enjoyed taking the train as well. We stayed in the North Rim campground and found it and the North Rim to be a fabulous location. Others may respond, but I believe the maximum length for an RV in the North Rim campground is 35 foot. I stayed there in a 33 foot 5th wheel pulled by a Dodge Megacab and we fit fine in one of their larger spots on the outer edge of the loop. The spots are labeled with max allowed RV length so you will be able to specifically reserve the spot that your rig will fit.

For the South Rim, Trailer Village in the park, great location. I understand that they are booked pretty solid thru the summer though. I'd try anyway.

We're heading from Clermont, FL to the south rim in mid September. Have reservations at Trailer Village. We'll be heading from there to Moab to Arches National Park and Canyonlands. Have been to the north and south rims of the canyon a couple of times before as well as Moab. It is a great place to go. Trailer Village is worth a look.

If you call they most likely will say they are full. If you drive up to check in cabin. Be good chance you will get a site.

We are leaving June 30 for a month long trip from Fl panhandle to Grand Canyon and return. Have reservations at Trailer Village. I know it will be hot but it is our only time to go since DW is still working as a school teacher. This will be our first extended trip on our RV. Wish us luck

Been to the Grand Canyon several times...Did NOT like the Grand Canyon Rail Road CG. Too many RVs... However, check out Distant Drums RV GC near Camp Verde. Great GC...

We use RVParkReviews.com and RVparky [app] to find good GC on the road. Just don't take 64 from Williams in and out...take 64 to GC to Cameron to Flagstaff... See Wupatki NM and Walnut Canyon NM ....

The end of September may be too late for the North Rim. They shut down for the winter pretty early. Check their web site or call to verify their operating season. Also, be aware that as you get into the higher country of NM and AZ, temperatures in October are getting pretty nippy. First frosts are usually in late September. early October.

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is the first full week of October. Camp grounds fill up quickly and prices go up for that event, so, again, if you are interested call ahead.

We went across the top of NM the last week in October 3 or 4 year ago. Went to the 4-corners then to the North Rim. Was at the North rim the last day of October. Everything closed. There was some snow on the ground. We were able to walk around but didn't stay all night.
