Distinctive & Notable





Phantom Ranch is tucked beside Bright Angel Creek on the north side of the Colorado River and is the only lodging facility below the canyon rim. The Fred Harvey Company became the concessioner for the camp in 1922 and hired the American architect Mary E.J. Colter to design permanent lodging. Open year-round, it is only accessible by mule, by foot, or by rafting the Colorado River. The accommodations at Phantom Ranch consist of dormitory spaces and cabins. The Phantom Ranch Canteen provides hearty breakfasts, sack lunches, and dinners. Advance reservations are required.
