"DESERT VIEW WATCHTOWER" Watchtower Tip by LoriPori
Watchtower, Grand Canyon: 2 reviews and 3 photos
Favorite thing: Opened in May, 1933, the DESERT VIEW WATCHTOWER was designed by famous Southwest designer, Mary Colter.
It is located at the eastern end of the South Rim of Grand Canyon. More than five stories high, the Watchtower sits out on a promontory overlooking the Grand Canyon. The main entrance into the structure leads into the largest room, known as the Kiva room. The ceiling is made up of logs salvaged from the old Grand View Hotel. The floor is made from flagstone and the room contains a massive fireplace.
Mostly used as a gift shop.
Also has an observation tower.
Open through October 21 - 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Address: Grand Canyon East
Directions: At the end of the East Rim Drive, by the Eastern end
