North Rim Hotels

The North Rim is a very remote destination so there is limited lodging and services, plus the short summer-only season means it sells out quickly. The jewel of the North Rim, perched on the precipice of the Kaibab Plateau, is the dignified Grand Canyon Lodge - a charming mix of motel and cabin accommodations and the only lodging inside the National Park. Just 5 miles outside of the park, the Kaibab Lodge is nestled on the Plateau amid a stand of Ponderosa pine. In nearby Jacob Lake, a scenic 44 miles from the North Rim, lies the Jacob Lake Inn. If you prefer a night-sky canopy and the smell of pine over Grand Canyon North Rim motels and lodging, be sure to check out North Rim RV camp sites and campgrounds; one campground is inside the Park, while several others lie just beyond.

At the North Rim, a moderate budget should secure you a room at the Grand Canyon Lodge inside the Park; rates range from $124 for a motel room to $173 for a cabin. Visitors to the North Rim can't realistically do it in just one day, so we encourage you to book at least one overnight; even better, increase your length of stay to at least two nights and plan to stay at the rim or in Page, Fredonia or southern Utah.

The North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is located atop the Kaibab Plateau in an astoundingly remote part of northern Arizona. There are very few accommodations available in the Park and nearby small villages like Jacob Lake, so many visitors wisely opt to stay in the Page-Lake Powell area, 120 beautiful miles from the entrance to Grand Canyon North Rim on the border of Arizona and Utah. Look for high-quality, affordable lodging in Page from familiar hotel chains and locally-owned motels.

In complement to the North Rim, the breathtaking country that surrounds offers visitors easy access to a host of Arizona and Utah destinations, often referred to as The Grand Circle. To access them all, consider establishing your home base in Kanab, Utah. St. George and Kanab hotels, motels and resorts offer a varied range in elegance and price - from minimalist motels to magnanimous golf resorts (with the latter being found only in St. George.) Either town makes an ideal launching pad for trips to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park as well as Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Canyon De Chelly, Zion National Park, and Marble Canyon. Sightseeing, white water rafting and backpacking/rock climbing opportunities abound in nearby natural wonders such as Antelope Slot Canyon; Horseshoe Bend; Lake Powell, Wahweap and Antelope Point Marinas; Lees Ferry; Rainbow Bridge; Navajo National Monument; Indian ruins and Navajo Village, all easily accessible from St. George, UT hotels and resorts.

Any Grand Canyon North Rim vacation will require an overnight, whether camping or lodging. The merits of choosing to make the trip to the North Rim are clear: far fewer crowds at the Rim and on trails; dramatic views distinct from those you'll get at the South Rim or West Rim; world-class hiking and backpacking and breathtaking scenery. When the sun goes down on your North Rim visit, the reasons to camp inside the National Park or just outside of the park boundaries atop the Kaibab Plateau are just as clear.

At the North Rim, you can tent and RV camp (no hookups, though there is a dump station) at the North Rim Campground inside the National Park. Outside of the park in the Kaibab National Forest, you'll find limited dispersed camping as well as campsites suitable for tents, trailers and small motor homes in US Forest Service's DeMotte Campground and Jacob Lake Campground. The USFS campgrounds do not have hook-ups and are available on a no-reservation, first-come first-served basis. All campsites, in and outside of the National Park, run $6 - $50 per night based on the site and the season.
