Parking at the Grand Canyon Visitor CenterTravelers will often park at the Visitor Center for the day, then ride the free shuttles around the village.
The most common approach to the Visitor Center is from the east on Highway 64.
Entering from this direction, the four lots are numbered, starting with Lot 1.
1) Lot 1 is the closest to the canyon and has pull-through spaces for RVs and vehicles with trailers.
2) Lot 2 is closer to the Visitor Center/ Plaza
3) Lot 3 often acts as the overflow lot is a short walk to the Visitor Center/ Plaza
4) Lot 4 is close to the Bicycle Rental/ Café, Bookstore and Visitor Center/ Plaza
