If you live for electronic devices, tv, and social media, this is not the place for you. But for those of us who enjoy quiet, nature, and history, it's Heaven. The bunkhouses (five bunk beds) each have a bathroom with shower, and the beds are...More

Beside camp, cabins or dorms are only accommodation for overnight stayers. Very basic but clean and comfortable. At the end of a long hike to the Colorado river and the Ranch, you are grateful for any type of a roof over your head. Food was...More

Phantom Ranch, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, reached only on foot or by mule, offers guests two dinner seatings, each with a different "menus," both served "family style." For us, plates of enormous steaks, huge baked potatoes, giant bowls of salad, cornbread, chocolate...More

Food was ok, service is excellent. It is a welcome place for hikers. Can even grab a beer or a glass of wine from a box. All hauled down by mule. Makes it special even though the food is very mediocre.

After a very long day of hiking, we were excited to get to Phantom Ranch Lodge, have some time to relax and refresh ourselves, and then come to Phantom Ranch Canteen for a nice steak dinner. You should plan in advance if you want steak....More

Very difficult to get reservations for this place. But well worth the wait. Not fancy but a great place to hike to and spend a night or two. Staff does a great job of making you welcome. We stayed in the bunkhouses. Very comfortable. Staff...More

It is a pleasant sight to see Phantom Ranch while you're hiking. The opportunity to sit down and have a short break with snacks is nice. Knowing the mules hike in the supplies, it should be obvious that choices are limited. M&Ms, granola bars, and...More

Quaint place to stop and grab a refreshing lemonade. Keep in mind you pack out what you bring in. Good place to relax for a while. I did not stay here but camped near by (1/2 mile). I understand you can order a steak dinner....More
