Grand Canyon Floor

There is an option for lodging if you embark on a trip to the Grand Canyon floor. Phantom Ranch is located at the bottom of the canyon next to Bright Angel Creek. You must submit an online request to stay at these locations. In order to reach the ranch you must either hike or take a mule ride to the canyon floor. There are two options at Phantom Ranch: Dormitories or cabins. Cabin stays are part of the overnight mule trips but dormitories are an option for hikers and backpackers. Dormitories require advance reservations. Finally, there are several campgrounds available throughout the canyon. Camping sites can be reserved in advance for both small and large groups. Wilderness camping away from the developed campgrounds is also available with a back country permit.
