On our recent trip to The Grand Canyon we had the opportunity to camp at The Bright Angel Campground right beside Phantom Ranch. We were celebrating my husband's 40th Birthday so we decided to celebrate with a breakfast beer at Phantom Ranch. Everything is brought down to the ranch by a mule train, which is a sight to see Beautiful... More

When backpacking in the winter it gets dark early and you find yourself with nothing to do -- it's cold (campfires aren't allowed) and dark. The Phantom Ranch is open in the evenings from about 8 or 8:30 (I can't remember which) for two hours. It's a great place to get a drink (beer, wine, hot drinks, etc.), stay warm,... More

I read somewhere that the Phantom Ranch is the most difficult hotel to reserve in the world. So first we called over a year before to get a reservation. All of our group of 6 called Xanterra and 2 of us actually got through. So a year later we got to actually go there. We planned everything else around this... More

This was a Rim To Rim this trip out. We came down North Kaibab (my GPS said 17.5 miles, not the 14 on the maps), checked in, got showered up (what a luxury), and had an excellent beef stew dinner (3 years ago the stew was fatty and not very good), with great corn bread and a chocolate cake we...

These are amazingly great cabins at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. They have to be reserved many months in advance. The setting has to been seen to really believe it exists.

Phantom Ranch is located close to the south rim at the bottom of the canyon. It has a campground, offers some basic food and you can stay in very basic lodges overnight. We just passed by Phantom Ranch on our day trip and did not stay but if you fancy a night in the canyon but do not want to... More

This place is at the bottom of the Grand Canyon and everything there is brought in by mule. The only way to get there is to hike in or ride a mule in, but it's sooooo worth it. The food is amazing and the servers are wonderful!
