GC campground reviews

Is this a fairly representative article?

I would say so. I would say that some of the sites at Mathers are pretty small. It is a really beautiful campground but if you have a larger rig and want full hookups, Trailer Village is the way to go.

We've been to the south rim several times. Stayed in Trailer Village, down in Williams and took the train up, even stayed at El Tovar. We've hiked the trails down and up , but one of the most fun trips was taking the mule ride down to Phantom Ranch and staying there overnight. If you have the time and are able to get reservations, I highly suggest giving it a shot. The day we went, it was cold and humid at the top... by the time we got to the ranch, it was 90+ and time for a cold beer and a dip in the creek !

We're thinking of making it a late November trip during Thanksgiving break. Appears that the highs are in the 50's and the lows are in the mid-upper 20's.

Will more than likely be staying at the South Rim since the North will already be closed for the season so is there typically any significant weather issues such as snow or ice that we might likely have to contend with?

You are at 7000 feet altitude so snow and ice are a possibility at any time that time of year.

As for snow - not likely - BUT - if you are lucky it might - https://www.currentresults.com/Weather/Arizona/Places/grand-canyon-snowfall-totals-snow-accumulation-averages.php

September, October and November are great months to visit Grand Canyon's South Rim. The crowds drop off dramatically after Labor Day, and the climate starts to dry out after the summer monsoons end, usually around mid-September. As the days grow shorter, the Canyon is bathed in gorgeous autumn light.

IMHO this will be a great time to visit.

Best of Luck
