The Grand Canyon’s Phantom Ranch has long been a wildly popular tourist destination thanks to its alluring and exclusive location at the Canyon’s base. Recently, the Ranch announced that reservations will no longer be booked by telephone. Instead, this inefficient process is being replaced by a new, streamlined web-based lottery system. The lottery will be open for entries for the first 25 days of each month, and winners will be secured a reservation fifteen months from the month of their win. If not all winning reservations are confirmed, then the remaining spots will be opened to the general public on a first-come first-serve basis.
- The Phantom Ranch is the only location that offers overnight stays at the base of the Grand Canyon
- Previously, guests hoping to snag a reservation would need to try calling over and over again, but now a web-based lottery system has been implemented for reservations
- Guests can enter the lottery during the first 25 days of the month, fifteen months prior to the time of their desired visit
