The Kaibab National Forest borders both the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon National Park. In 1893, Congress created the Grand Canyon Forest Reserve. In 1906, it turned into the Grand Canyon Game Preserve at the stroke of big game hunter President Theodore Roosevelt’s mighty pen. In 1919, the Grand Canyon National Park was created from the Forest... More

Was good for us, we arrived at 1 pm and there were several spots left. It's dry camping with vault toilets with pretty level sites. Close to the entrance of the National Park.

We are outdoor people and loved the timber, and feeling you are on top of the world in the area around Jacob Lake to the North Rim. In the park we saw deer and a coyote. This is beautiful country.

Driving from down on the Colorado Plateau to the top of the North Rim Plateau with Jacob Lake and down the other side toward Fredonia and Kanab beyond - or vice versa - you rise (and then drop) through different zones of flora from the wide open Colorado Plateau with a panoramic view of the amazing Vermilion Cliffs, a truly...

The only road into the North Rim. What a gorgeous drive. We traveled it in mid-Sept. & the Aspens were just starting to turn gold. Tons of deer. I made my poor husband stop a dozen times just to take photos

We stayed in the Kaibab forest on the North Rim, and its beauty is most of the splendor. There are trails to walk, wildlife to see, and at night the stars shine brightly. We saw Bison, mule deer, rabbit’s, and some Kaibab squirrels. You can spend a good time driving through the forest also, the scenery can keep you entertained... More

What a lovely drive through the forest and meadows. The Kaibab Forest is on both the North and South side of the Grand Canyon. On the North from Jacob Lake to the North Rim the drive includes a few campgrounds and marvelous open meadows. Depending on your luck and the time of year you may see Buffalo, deer and elk.... More

Spent most of a day exploring the forest area and saw a terrific range of wildlife. Mule Deer were prolific and didn't mind the cars so we got some good photos of them.We also spotted a Coyote crossing one of the forest meadows.

Beautiful Scenic drive toward the North Rim. We didn't hike the trail, although it is EASILY accessible. Worth the effort.
