  1. Default First Family Trip To The Grand Canyon


    My family and I have reserved 4 nights at the campsite at Mathers / South Rim at the Grand Canyon Park...

    We are not going to hike down to the backcountry because of my son being 7 months old,,,,but

    We are looking for a place to swim .....

    Does anyone have any info about swimholes in the South Rim or near that area???

    Much appreciated!!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    I don't know offhand of any areas near there that could be considered "swimming holes" in the usual sense - being a very dry climate, the chances of stumbling upon one that isn't a swimming pool would be almost nil. I would wager that the hotels in the area would have a pool, however.

    Default Not Really Close, But...

    One natural place to get in the water in northern Arizona is Slide Rock State Park south of Flagstaff on AZ-89A in Oak Creek Canyon. Besides being an oasis in this part of the country, the drive is scenic and might be worth a day's excursion from the Canyon.
