News in Travel

Thinking about a Grand Canyon camping trip? If renting an RV or trying to figure out how to pitch an un-airconditioned tent for your next road trip doesn’t give you all the (good) feels, then glamping may be right for you. Glamping is what happens when the great outdoors and a luxury hotel have a baby!

The Grand Canyon Glamping Resort rewards you with direct views of the Grand Canyon rim, plush bedding, wifi, and heating and air conditioning for climate-controlled luxury camping. A full bathroom and shower are included if you’re staying in one of their wagons with room for up to six people. If you’re in a glamping tent or tipi, bathrooms are nearby.

Gourmet food trucks provide meals ranging from breakfast burritos to ribeye and filet. And if you’re lucky, you may be able to return the favor and feed some bison in the morning.

At night, be prepared to be amazed…nature-style. Imagine stargazing while you gather with friends (old and new), family, or maybe just by yourself. Roast marshmallows over the fire pit, and enjoy the feeling of being outside, steps away from one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Your days can be as serene or action-packed as you want them to be. Hiking and biking are nearby, or you can arrange adventures with the resort, like helicopter tours, horseback riding, or riding through the Joshua Tree Forest on ATVs.

Another Adventure Option: Grand Canyon West

Your days can be as serene or action-packed as you want them to be.

The resort is just one mile away from the Grand Canyon West’s Skywalk, so bring your walking shoes and maybe some courage. The Skywalk is one of the largest glass cantilever bridges in the world, situated on the Hualapai Reservation. The horseshoe-shaped bridge is 10 feet wide, jets out 70 feet, is made of glass, and hovers 4,000 feet above the Canyon floor. What a view! You’ll need an entry ticket, and they are available for the Skywalk only (starting from $26), or you can add a meal to the adventure for a little more.

Adventure travelers looking for a little more adrenaline-pumping action can zipline, spend the day whitewater rafting on the river, or take a helicopter ride down to the canyon floor and board a pontoon boat for a slower-paced view of the river and canyon walls.

Cultural travelers can experience the Hualapai Tribe, the “People of the Tall Pines,” at Hualapai Point. The Hualapai (pronounced Wal-lah-pie) reservation encompasses about one-million acres along 108 miles of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. The tribe was one of the first to enter the tourism trade with a casino; however, being so close to Las Vegas, they realized their fortunes were not in the slots but in the land. Today, there is no casino on the reservation. Instead, they celebrate the land and their history and share it with visitors. They sell guided big-game hunting permits, run a river rafting company, and are involved in cattle ranching and arts and crafts. The tribe created Grand Canyon West to offer another option for travelers looking at Grand Canyon National Park, one of the best National Parks in the U.S. In addition to the tour packages provided above, you can hear the tribe’s stories, learn about the history, see artifacts at the Cultural Gallery, and watch performers share their story with song and dance on an outdoor stage. 

So on your next adventure to the Grand Canyon, you have even more options. Which type of camping do you prefer?
