RV PARK REVIEW:
Apr. 11 - Apr. 17, 2013
Trailer Village - (Part of Grand Canyon Park), AZ
Site # I-60 $35.00/day
Our rating 4 out of 5
/ SITES: Gravel and very unlevel.. Close, but enough space to let our dog out on a 15 foot tether. Sights at the end of rows are more spacious with shade. Some sites are open, others have shade. Our site had a beautiful Utah Juniper tree for shade.
+ HOOK UPS: FHU
/ BATHROOMS: Toilets only, no showers. Did not check for cleanliness, did not use.
- LAUNDRY: No
+ PETS: Pets allowed. Plenty of area to walk the dogs. Many paved walking paths and woods are cleared so easy to walk through. Dogs are not allowed on shuttle buses nor on many unpaved trails into the Canyon. There is a day kennel if needed.
- WIFI: No
+ VERIZON INTERNET: Worked very well.
- SPRINT INTERNET: No service
+ VERIZON PHONE: good
- AT&T PHONE: No service
- BOOK EXCHANGE: No
+ ACTIVITIES: Hiking the Grand Canyon.
/MAIL DELIVERY ACCEPTED: No, but there is a US Post Office in the Park at Market Plaza.
/AREA/TOWN/SIGHTS: Did not venture outside of park.
We saw huge Mule Deer almost daily in the RV park. On two occasions we saw Elk just grazing in the RV sites. Very cool experience.
Free shuttle bus to other areas of the South Rim available right outside the campground (walking distance).
Market plaza is maybe 3/4 to 1 mile from campground with a well stocked, but premium priced grocery, the US Post Office, a cafeteria, Chase bank, and a gift shop with hiking equipment available for rental or purchase.
