  • When you arrive in the park, check bulletin boards or ask at information tables about programs being offered during your visit.



Outdoor Information Tables Staffed by Park Rangers:

  • South Rim - Village: Outside Grand Canyon Visitor Center. The information desk is open from 9 am - 4 pm, Thursday through Monday. We are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays except during holiday weeks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years) when it will be staffed 7 days/week. The visitor center building remains closed.
  • South Rim - Desert View: The information table is closed. Desert View Ranger Programs have ended for the season.
  • North Rim: The Visitor Center is closed and ranger programs have ended for the season. The North Rim is open for dawn-to-dusk day use through November 30, or if a major snowstorm closes State Route 67.
