The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is part of Grand Canyon National Park.

Many people consider the South Rim to be the “real” Grand Canyon, and more people visit the South Rim than any other location.

The South Rim South Entrance Station is easily accessible year round from points south using State Route 64 through Tusayan.

The South Rim East Entrance Station is also accessible from points north using State Route 64 from Cameron, but please be sure to check road conditions in the winter as this East Entrance is sometimes closed due to snow/ice.
