Grand Canyon - Free Parking in Flagstaff

In GC trips past, I've left vehicles at hotel in Flagstaff where we've staged before and after the trip. However, this time, because of time constraints, we won't be staying at any hotels prior to launch. Does anybody know of a good, relatively safe place to park a number of vehicles for free during the three weeks we'll be on the river?

Thanks.

I'm guessing that means that you're doing your own shuttle? Obviously, shuttle services provide parking.

Or are you going with an outfitter? If that's the case, they will have some kind of arrangement that you can take advantage of.

Yeah, we're utilizing PRO for a shuttle, but last I checked they don't provide parking...hence my request for other options.

In similar circumstances, I've talked with the hotel (not for the GC, but for other rivers) and got permission to park--without making any promise that I or members of my party would be staying there. Invariably, a few did, but I think they'd have let us park out on the far edges of the parking lot anyway.

That's a good suggestion, Mogur. Because we're not staying at one of the many Flag motels this time, we figured we couldn't utilize their parking lots like we usually do. But, worth a shot, especially if we say we're hoping to stay there after the trip (even if we don't).
