At Yavapai Lodge®, natural beauty meets the magic of convenience. Set within the incredible scenery of the park, this Grand Canyon hotel occupies a prime location in the canyon. It's about a one-mile walk from the canyon's South Rim and steps from the general store, bank and post office. Of course, it's more than just the perfect place to start your adventure. Its newly-remodeled main lodge makes it a great place to relax and recharge, thanks to cozy seating areas and an outdoor patio.
The main lodge is also home to the newly-remodeled Yavapai Lodge Restaurant, which offers a new menu of hearty, Southwestern-inspired meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. After dinner, stop by our fully-stocked Yavapai Tavern to plan the next day's adventures over drinks, or share your tales of adventure over a cup of coffee at our Coffee Shop.

About Yavapai Lodge
Yavapai Lodge is the park's largest facility, and is nestled within woodlands approximately one half of a mile from the rim. With modern newly renovated rooms and many services within walking distance, this is a convenient place for families. Yavapai Lodge is normally open March through November and during winter holiday periods.
Yavapai Lodge offers 358 rooms that are laid out in ten single-story buildings known as Yavapai West and six two-story wood buildings known as Yavapai East. Most rooms in Yavapai West are compact with cinder-block walls, but they do afford guests the benefit of driving to the door. Yavapai East's units are larger, with king and queen size beds and air-conditioning, and many enjoy views of the forest.
The Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona is a tremendous and unusual landscape that must be experienced for oneself. The canyon is one mile deep, about 10 miles wide, and 277 river miles long. It was formed by the Colorado River cutting through and eroding the plateau over many years, carving out the vast trench. Its exposed rock layers are believed to indicate more than 2 billion years of geologic history. Fossils retrieved from this region tell scientists much about the earth's evolution. This rugged area is great for hiking and backpacking for the day or on a multi-day journey. Around 5 million people travel here every year to explore the canyon and surrounding desert wilderness.
The inspirational Grand Canyon is divided into three main sections – the remote North Rim, the Inner Gorge, and the heavily traveled South Rim.
The South Rim is 7,000 feet in elevation and ranges in temperature throughout the year. This area averages 50 to 80 degrees F in the summer, but often reaches over 100 degrees.
