North Rim Resumes Full Visitor Services Beginning July 23

The Grand Canyon Lodge will officially commence their 2023 seasonal operations on Sunday, July 23. Since June 2, limited visitor services have been available due to a break in the North Rim water pipeline that led to water conservation measures. The water pipeline was fully repaired and water conservation measures for the North Rim are no longer in effect.

The Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim operations, including lodging, food and beverage services, and shower and laundry, will also open July 23. The lodge dining room will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with reservations required for dinner service. The last day of the 2023 season for most commercial services will be October 15, 2023.

The National Park Service will continue its operations including the Backcountry Information Office through October 31. The park entrance gate on State Route 67, which provides vehicle access to the North Rim, will close at 5 p.m. on November 30, 2023, or after the first major snowstorm if prior to that date. Visitors exploring the North Rim, on, or after, October 16 should be self-suffecient and bring enough food and water for the day.
