    This question is a little early, but it's what I'm thinking about right now:

    My wife and I are planning a trip to Phoenix for the NRA convention next May.
    We've been to AZ a couple times, but never to the Grand Canyon, so we figured while we're down there we'd take 3 days and go up.

    I'm thinking most of the area is federal land being a national park and all. So where can I and can't I open carry while there?

    You would need to speak to someone @ Arizona Dept. of public safety on that one.

    Williams, Flagstaff, etc are fine. Anywhere in the canyon itself will be a no-go due the the federal regulations on carry in National Parks.

    There are some areas that are very remote. I would not be caught there unarmed. Just my $0.02.

    We just got back from there a week or so ago.

    OC'd in Williams and at the KOA campground we stayed at. Kept it stashed in the truck at the park.



    NO issues.

    Me neither... Wilderness areas are just that. It ain't Disneyland.

    I know this is an old thread, but the Grand Canyon is a National Park, and firearms are a strict No-No. Federal Law applies, not state law.
