Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

As we drove from Arizona or Utah we took a detour to the north rim of the Grand Canyon it was well worth the trip. It’s beautiful but not as crowded and they have some lovely scenic walks nearby. I will definitely come back and...More
Came here to the North Rim Campground for five days just before they closed for the season. You MUST have reservations! We loved the campground as it is easy walking to a rim trail and great sunset views of the canyon. All of the visitor...More
