To say the Grand Canyon is amazing would be the understatement of the century. The Grand Canyon is a stunning series of national parks and Indian reservations that everyone should visit. One of the best and most rewarding ways to enjoy this wonderland is camping or even better for many - glamping. Under Canvas Grand Canyon is located just 25 minutes from the South Rim entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park.

This is a stunning accommodation option offering upscale accommodations in one of American's most spectacular regions. Its accommodation options have been safari-inspired and are a great way to enjoy the great outdoors in style and comfort while glamping.


Why Visit In October

For many, the best time to visit the Grand Canyon is in October. In October the temperature is generally very pleasant with the day temperature still being warm in around the mid-70s. The night temperature is still quite pleasant. In the summer the Grand Canyon can be very crowded and the canyon can be very hot. In the autumn the crowds are staying to die back. In the winter, there are few tourists, but much of the Grand Canyon is closed and there are fewer services running.

  • Temperature: The Temperature Is Pleasant In October

In October the start of the true beginning of autumn is starting and is one of the best times to visit the Grand Canyon. There can even be snow on the rims of the canyon, still, temperatures can still rise as high as 100 degrees down at the bottom of the mighty canyon early on in October - or it can be as low as 60 degrees. If that isn't enough, it is the prime time for getting out and exploring the backcountry with hiking, rafting, etc.

To top it off, during the peak season it can be difficult to get reservations, but by October it is beginning to get easier around the rims.

One thing to keep in mind is that while Under Canvas Grand Canyon is in the South Rim, the North Rim closes around this time or soon after. The North Rim normally closes after the first serious snowfall after October 15 - although in practice this is normally in November.

Fostering the atmosphere of camping, they also light communal fire pits between 7.00 pm and 10.00 pm every night. So no one is going without s'mores! There is also wood and a stove inside each tent for heading the tent in case it gets chilly.

When it comes to internet access, Under Canvas does not provide any WIFI in order to enhance the camping experience for everyone. Cellphone reception can be a little patchy.

  • Check-In Time: 3.00 PM to 1 AM (The Campsite Is Staffed 24 Hours So If Arriving Late Let Them Know
  • Check-Out Time: 10 AM (Late Checkouts Are Not Accommodated)

While this is a glamping experience, it is not that luxurious glamping. In addition to not having WIFI there are no outlets in the tent - so no mini fridge to keep the beer cold. There is, however, a battery that can power the fans, lanterns, charge phones via the USB ports - so there's no risk of your phone running out of juice.
