Convenient Grand Canyon RV Camping near Peach Springs, AZ

Nestled along historic Route 66 near Peach Springs, Arizona, lies an off-the-beaten-path gem that boasts an underground trifecta: a cavern suite, grotto restaurant, and tour company. Grand Canyon Caverns remains one of the most unique tourist destinations in North America. It’s not only home to the largest dry cavern in the U.S., but this classic roadside attraction features a spacious dining room…that happens to be 21 stories below the earth’s surface. This multi-purpose crowd-pleaser sits on 800 acres of semi-arid backcountry, where travelers will discover a bevy of antique cars, an oversized T-Rex, a gas station, a gift shop, 48 vintage (and themed) hotel rooms, and, of course, idyllic Grand Canyon RV camping.

Grand Canyon RV Camping: Embrace the RV Lifestyle

The RV lifestyle has never been more alluring than it is today—a time when life on the open road unquestionably trumps hours upon hours spent cramped in a stuffy office or a classroom. Our spacious, all-natural Grand Canyon RV camping remains a massive draw for those who are simply motoring along Route 66 or those traveling to and from Havasu Falls or the park’s southern rim. Grand Canyon Caverns’ 800-acre outland property tenders 48 individual RV sites, all of which feature water and electricity. Guests have swift access to private toilets and hot showers, of course.

But the real reason that RVers cannot resist the allure of this backland respite is the property’s sprawling acreage, which includes a swimming pool, mini-golf course, fire pits, and miles upon miles of hiking trails. Oh, and the sunsets, which subtly dip below the west-facing mountains, are spellbinding (and quite photogenic). Lastly, our Grand Canyon RV camping is heavily treed, unlike most nearby outposts. These tall, well-kept beauties provide ample shade during those particularly warm summer afternoons. Campers often marvel at the post-dusk skyline, where comets and shooting stars are a regular occurrence.

A Trip into the Dry Cavern

As mentioned above, we’re home to the largest dry cavern in the U.S., hidden 200-plus feet below the earth’s surface. With zero humidity and an idyllic 56 degrees, a trek through the cavern is a must, regardless of the season. We offer five unique cave tours, ranging from the classic “Chapel of the Ages” exploratory tour to the one-hour ghost walk and the lengthy caving expedition en route to the “mystery room.” Hungry travelers will also discover one of the only underground restaurants in the American Southwest—an all-you-can-eat, buffet-style experience that includes a bevy of entree choices, a salad bar, two drinks, and our famous dessert. Reservations (928-422-3223) are greatly encouraged.

To learn more about Grand Canyon Caverns, one of the top-rated RV parks near the Grand Canyon, please like us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Our classic Grand Canyon motel still has ample availability in the coming months! However, we’re expecting our largest crowds ever this winter due to COVID-19. Thus, while Grand Canyon RV camping reservations are not required, we highly recommend planning ahead by booking online.

Grand Canyon Caverns, a Historic Route 66 Stop

Historic Route 66 starts in front of the Art Institute of Chicago and weaves through much of the country’s heartland en route to Southern California’s Santa Monica Pier. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime journey, often labeled as an integral “bucket list” item, especially for RVers. The 2,448-mile expedition crosses through eight states, most notably in northcentral Arizona along the southern rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the world’s “Seven Natural Wonders.” Peach Springs’ Grand Canyon Caverns remains an essential stop along historic Route 66, particularly for those with a penchant for underground exploration, distinctive lodging, and subterranean dining.

The Largest Dry Cavern in the U.S.

Imagine steadily dropping 21 stories below the earth’s surface—the blood rushing through your veins, the humidity entirely dissipating, the sounds of giddiness echoing off the Redwall Limestone. The anticipation of such an adventure is only eclipsed by the sheer jaw-dropping beauty of the Chapel of the Ages Cavern. As the largest dry cavern in the U.S., it allures travelers from all across the globe. Besides “standard” tours, the massive, enthralling cave is utilized for weddings, ghost hunting, guided caving, and, as you’ll soon find out, dining. Oft-seen crystals include selenite, limestone, and helectite.

A Subterranean Dining Experience

Perhaps you’ve already caught wind of the largest dry cavern in the U.S., but that’s just the tip of the selenite, as it were. The Cavern Grotto celebrated its third anniversary this summer, and it remains one of the only underground restaurants in the world. Approximately 200 feet underground, travelers can simultaneously marvel at the sprawling cavern and dine on Southwestern fare. The Cavern Grotto holds 16 total guests. Admission includes a cave tour and an all-you-can-eat meal. It’s a dining experience unlike any other. Menu items change with the “seasons,” as the culinary team likes to keep things fresh. However, common delights include burgers, steak, and salads. Remember to leave room for dessert—the housemade pie is to-die-for!

The Ultimate Grand Canyon Suite

Photo of the Cavern Suite along Historic Route 66 in Arizona.

Before departure, don’t forget to nab a keepsake from the gift shop and pose for photos next to the brontosaurus or tyrannosaurus. Grand Canyon Caverns is often the first (or last) stop before a trip to nearby Havasu Falls, one of the most spellbinding natural beauties on the planet. Thankfully, above the cavern, travelers will discover an RV park, campground, motel, and ranch house. However, The Cavern Suite, “the largest, oldest, deepest, darkest, quietest motel room in the world,” is the accommodation of choice for many, chiefly if you’re traveling with a large group. The Cavern Suite sleeps up 10 people, and, as you can probably imagine, is quite a thrill. Guests will discover a record player (bring your vinyl!), a fully-stocked bookshelf, a 100-year-old collection of National Geographic magazines, comfortable beds, and, yes, a working bathroom. A staff member is readily available at the top of the elevator if you need any assistance whatsoever.
