Along with this are many, many more people and vehicles.

Definitely walk down the Bright Angel Trail if only for 1/8 mile or so. (Remember, walking up is difficult.) It will give you a whole different perspective of the canyon.

You might want to give Trailer Village RV in the park itself a call to see if you would fit. It's an ideal place to stay. Williams is an hour away and the drive is flat and boring. Have a good trip.
Good points -Thanks for suggesting!

If I may add my two cents, I have to agree this is the way to do it. The park was clean, the sites large, and town was a short walk away. Taking the train to the canyon was an added adventure all on its own. Once there, the shuttle buses run regularly so we really didn't miss not having the toad. Not having to drive was a plus too.
