The Grand Canyon needs little introduction. Not only is it one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, it is also visited by more than 6 million people each year. After seeing it ourselves it’s really no surprise that it’s so popular – when you first see the depth and expanse of the canyon it’s almost hard to believe that what you’re seeing is real. We got to spend two days at two different ends of the South Rim and it ended up being a fantastic, albeit short, trip. We’ll definitely be back in a few years when the kids are older and we can go on some of the hikes down below the rim.
While visiting the Grand Canyon we stayed at the Flintstones Bedrock City RV Park and Campground about half an hour south of the park. This campground was by far the cheapest in the area (outside of boondocking), but it also ended up being kind of cool in a funky way. Bedrock City is a small “theme park” right next to the campground with a life-size Flintstones village that you can explore and play in. The kids absolutely loved running around in there, and we all had fun on the dinosaur slide 🙂 Even if you don’t need a place to stay for the night, you should swing by and check it out for a few laughs.
