Meteor Crater to Grand Canyon Road Trip
Meteor Crater is located in Northern Arizona about 35 miles east of Flagstaff, AZ a few hours drive from the South Rim, making it a good stop on a Grand Canyon road trip. Meteor Crater is not actually a park run by a government agency, since the area is located on private land. This site was formed for the visitation and study of the world’s best-preserved meteorite impact site, and was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1967. Meteor Crater is open to the public for a fee, and has all the facilities you’ll find at a park. The Admission Fee for Meteor Crater is $15 for adults with discounts for seniors and children. This includes visitation of three viewpoints, the collisions and impacts movie, and weather permitting a guided walk. There is also a subway, gift shop and an RV campground all with reasonable prices. If you're traveling to the Grand Canyon, including a visit to Meteor Crater is a great addition to your trip.
