Desert View Gas Station

Running on empty? Fill up at the Desert View gas station. It's a long way back to Grand Canyon Village, so be sure to leave with a full tank. The Grand Canyon is not the place to run out of gas. It's the only gas station in the park itself.

Here, offerings go beyond the usual gas station essentials like ice cold drinks and snacks. It also boasts a limited selection of the following: camping supplies, groceries, auto accessories and discounted souvenirs including Grand Canyon t-shirts! This makes it a popular destination for those camping at Desert View and visitors who are just spending the day.
