“Neat little VC on the South Rim”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Verkamp's is a small visitor center on the South Rim, right near El Tovar, that has great information on the arrival of modern-day people to develop tourism at the Grand Canyon. The exhibit is organized chronologically and has information on the floor and the walls. It's a quick stop that gives you a good background on how the Canyon became such a tourist site.

“This is a Grand Canyon Visitor Center, located just east of El Tovar”
Reviewed 12 April 2010

Verkamp's is a new Grand Canyon Visitor Center, located right on the rim at the east end of the main South Rim village. There is another South Rim Visitor Center located farther east, at the Grand Canyon Information Plaza. Verkamp's is a busy Visitor Center with a medium-sized souvenir shop and a small information display area.
