Phantom Ranch, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, is a popular destination for both hikers and mule riders. Overnight dormitories and cabins can be reserved and meals are available for purchase. Advance reservations for meals and lodging are required.
(An NPS backcountry camping permit is not required for overnight stays at the dormitories or cabins at Phantom Ranch.) The park's Backcountry Information Center does not make reservations for Phantom Ranch lodging or meals. Reservations are made through Grand Canyon National Park Lodges.
"Traveling Green" is a great way to help Grand Canyon and other areas you visit reduce carbon emissions, divert and reduce what goes into the waste stream, and to generally help the environment.
