Reduced services at Grand Canyon North Rim
October 15th is the last night for staying overnight at Grand Canyon’s North Rim lodging. Breakfast on the 16th will be the last meal served for the 2009 season. This is also the end of Interpretive Park Ranger programs. The campground becomes first come first served dry camping with porta-pottys. Fuel is self serve with plastic only. The campstore closes.
The Park Service will attempt to keep the visitor center and park open until November 29th, unless the snow flies first. It should be a quiet time. The North Rim will reopen May 15th, 2010, unless the snow’s too deep.
