Here at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon we have the pleasure of operating in a truly unique and special place - it's one of the seven natural wonders of the world after all, and for good reason! A visit to the Grand Canyon is anything but ordinary; it is a true escape in every sense of the word. However, escaping the ordinary sometimes comes with a price that some visitors may not be expecting: technology withdrawal.
Although it might seem obvious to some, the Grand Canyon is in a very remote location, and visiting this amazing place means you're going to be getting far away from the cell towers and wireless hot spots that we're so used to having back home. If the thought of being "unplugged" gives you anxiety, you're not alone, but let us help you put your fears to rest, and show you a few ways that embracing the lack of technology can make your Grand Canyon adventure even better!
WiFi is available in a few places, and we have a slow connection and limited bandwidth, so it's not ideal for much more than checking email or some (very) light browsing. In other words, it's there if you need it, but don't expect to be able to download your favorite podcast, stream Netflix, or Skype with your friends back home.
WiFi is available in the Yavapai Lodge lounge area, and in the Camper Services facility near Trailer Village.
Trailer Village campsites, and most other public areas.
The good news is, you're in luck! The Grand Canyon was MADE to be experienced "unplugged". Here are just a few of the many things you can do while disconnected.
