Camping in the Grand Canyon National Park doesn’t really need justification. The North Rim is less crowded but harder to access. The South Rim is open year-round. Backcountry hiking, for which you need a permit, is very popular. White water rafting in the raging Colorado river is perhaps one of the most famous activities.
