Bring your own bed for hotel rooms are the park can be pretty pricey. You can also reserve a spot in one of the campgrounds or purchase a backcountry camping permit for a fraction of the cost.
Arrive fashionably late
If you’re set on a summer trip, you’ll have better luck finding deals on a place to hang your hat if you visit at the end of August.
Forget the car. You can save money on rentals, gas and parking by relying on the Grand Canyon’s free shuttle bus service. It’s the easiest way to explore the South Rim.
