Many enthusiast enjoy camping in and around the canyon. There is plenty to do with repelling, rock climbing, and white water rafting. Tucked deep in the canyon is a river that makes for some awe inspiring hiking destinations. The deep colors of the rock and the contrast of shades from the different layers of the earth’s crust mixed with waterfalls and unique vegetation make for truly a one of a kind experience.
For those who aren’t campers, enjoy staying in a lodge or nearby inn. There is a lodge situated almost directly off of the rim. Comfort and cozy accommodations will suit everyone. Some day dwellers will visit the attraction by driving close to the rim and taking one of the many paved trails to see the vast gorge below them.
