grand canyon

I'm planning a six day trip to the grand canyon with my 16 yr. old son in June of 07. It's the first time and I want to see it from top to bottom and if possible do some rafting. Any suggestions as to where to start, stay etc. How far in advance do I need to make reservations in the park?

I would also post this on an Arizona board, since the Grand Canyon is in Arizona........

But we've been to the park several times,so i can help a bit. You can do day hikes around the canyon that aren't too bad,but if you want to camp in the canyon,you need a backcountry pass.THey'll only let a certain amount of people camp in the canyon per night,so you need to make your reservations asap. We booked 6 months ahead of time when we went and we got the last 2 passes for a weekend in July,so I'd book now if you plan on backpacking/camping in the canyon. There are alot of hotels outside the park if you didnt want to camp.Check with the Arizona board for more specific info, i'm sure they'll be a better help!
