We visited the north rim this past summer and loved it. We did it as a day trip from Zion NP.

North rim is not open in winter...basically from Oct to May it is closed. They do limited camping at the south rim, also there are several KOA's near the Grand Canyon. Watch the weather, you could have snow etc at that time of year.

Thanks, I spend winter in the southern end of Florida so I wasn't even thinking about closings. The only NP near here is Everglades and it is open year round.

Trailer Village at the South Rim is very good because it is right at the Canyon. You can walk or ride a bike to the rim. Have also stayed at The Grand Canyon Railway Park in Williams, AZ about 50 miles south of the Canyon but nice park and is a Passport America park (half price). From there you can take the train up to the park.

I spent a week up there in Nov. a few years ago at hunting camp on the south side. It was really cold, as in below zero at night.

If you come across interstate 40 you could stay in Williams one hour to the canyon then the next day an hour to Sedona

Grand Canyon

Trailer Village at the South Rim Entrance worked well for me. Didn't have to drive from Williams everyday. Trailer Village sites are not very level. You will see elk every morning and you can walk to the bus and ride to the park.

We stayed at the Trailer Village at the South Rim this past weekend. It was cold, but manageable. The village has full hookup, including cable. WIFI is not available at the RV site, but is available at a nearby location. A shuttle bus pick up is located at the village and it transports you to all the points of interest on the South Rim, visitor center, and general store (which is within walking distance from the RV site). We really enjoyed the RV site.
