Half the Park is After Dark

People from all over the world seek to view the wonder that is Grand Canyon National Park. To peer over the ledge and into a canyon forged over centuries by nature. Then they leave. Little do they know that half of the Park is after dark.

In June 2019, Grand Canyon National Park was awarded the status of an IDA International Dark Sky Park. This means that the Grand Canyon is one of the purest places to view the night sky in the entire world.

The constellations, shooting stars, meteor showers, and moon phases create an epic spectacle in the Canyon. Our favorite stargazing spots include Mather Point, Moran Point, Lipan Point, and Yavapai Point.

Yavapai Lodge is the first choice for a celestial adventure with our Star Gazing Package, full of helpful tools and information. In addition, we've partnered with local NASA Solar System Ambassadors for our famous free Night Sky Talks featuring a James Webb Telescope demonstration and your chance to look up at the dark sky through on-site telescopes.

This is one starry adventure you won't regret.
