Grand Canyon Railway RV Park, Pet Resort Now Open
RVers Have The Inside Track
WILLIAMS, Ariz. — Grand Canyon Railway is pleased to welcome guests to its
new RV Park and Pet Resort, opened last year.
Grand Canyon Railway RV Park is located just west of the historic Williams
Depot and opposite the famed Cataract Creek.
Nature paths and a shuttle will take guests from the RV Park to the Depot,
where Grand Canyon Railway begins its daily journey to the South Rim of the
Grand Canyon and where there are several opportunities to photograph the
railway’s vintage steam and diesel engines, and passenger cars.
This facility is adjacent to and an easy walk to Williams Visitor Center and
Historic Downtown area, including Route 66.
When not enjoying the sights and sounds of trains, guests can make use of the
park’s many community features. The most impressive feature is a 72-seat
pavilion with gas grills, picnic tables, and a huge fire pit.
"When developing our RV Park, it was very important to us to create a sense
of community, not just spaces for people to hook-up to for a night here or
there," said David Chambers, president of Grand Canyon Railway.
Additional community features include a full-service convenience store,
laundry, and very clean shower and restroom facilities. Recreational activities
also abound with community volleyball and basketball courts as well as horseshoe
pits and kids playground.
Equally impressive are Grand Canyon Railway RV Park’s state-of-the-art
private spaces. The park is comprised of 124 spaces featuring ample room for
slideouts as well as buddy spaces for traveling companions and full hook-ups,
including wireless Internet and cable television.
Several recreational vehicle spaces also feature an uninterrupted view of the
BNSF line, which carries up to 10 mixed-consist trains through Williams every
And, while many RV properties are known as pet-friendly, Grand Canyon
Railway’s Pet Resort downright pampers pets. Guests who prefer not to leave
their loved one alone when riding the train or exploring historic Route 66 in
downtown Williams can check them into a Pet Resort.
This is especially ideal for RV park guests looking to stay overnight at the
Grand Canyon Railway’s Pet Resort offers 28 rooms for dogs and 16 comfortable
rooms for cats. Both dogs and cats are kept cool and comfortable with central
air conditioning during summer months and heat in the winter.
The Pet Resort’s canine guests also enjoy interactive group and individual
playtime in the exercise yard during their stay — as well as the opportunity for
a doggie wash.
The Pet Resort is available to guests of both the RV Park and Grand Canyon
Railway Hotel as well as Grand Canyon Railway passengers and the general public.
Grand Canyon Railway operates daily train service between Williams, Ariz.,
and the Grand Canyon. The railway offers five distinct classes of service, as
well as money-saving packages featuring the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel in
Overnight stays at the Grand Canyon also can be included in the packages.
Grand Canyon Railway is an authorized concessionaire of the National Park
Service and the Kaibab National Forest.
