The view on the drive from Jacob Lake to Kanab is just beautiful. It starts about 11 mi from Jacob Lake on 89A. You can enjoy the red rock cliffs around Kanab. The forest itself is beautiful with some turn off places for a picnic. Deer abound and the Kaibab squirrel can be seen - the only place in the... More

Gorgeous area with many hiking trails, birds, wildlife and habitats. The lodge overlooking Grand Canyon had special views from the deck plus I ate breakfast which was affordable and delicious with views of the canyon.

The drive into the Grand Canyon is very pleasing to the eye, woods and meadows with lots of wildlife on our way out in the late evening.

I don't even know if I should write a review on this place as I don't want the word to get out! We love dispersed camping and Kaibab offers that in spades. You are the only ones out there in any given spot and will see absolutely NO ONE for an entire weekend at your campsite. It was beautiful, cool,... More

A must visit if only cos you have to drive through it for about 90 minutes from Kanab in order to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon - much better and less touristy than the South Rim.

While on a roadtrip in the west we came across Kaibab National forest, specifically Bill Williams Trail #21...we stopped for a break at which time we decided to have a snack... there was one picnic table and it was located about 10 feet from the restrooms. These aren't flushing toilets, but the kind that has to be pumped...so I'll let... More

It is a beautiful drive from Kanab, Ut., through the Kaibab National forest to Flagstaff, Az. The scenic drive is spectacular, and the vermillion cliffs by themselves make the trip worth while. What we didn't like was the road. Hwy 89-A was the worst road we traveled during our 10 week trip this spring of 2015. We traveled nearly 4,000... More

Lots of wildlife, beautiful scenery, close to the Grand Canyon. What more can you ask for?? We loved it and highly recommend it, especially if you can camp in DeMotte Campground.

Extremely helpful volunteers and forest service workers have tons of information, hints and brochures that will help you get to where you are going and tell you about the area. Interesting exhibits in the station.

This park is tucked into the forest under cover of many trees. There is appropriate water and electric. In the evenings, they pack them in!!!! Campers and RV's are about 10 feet from each other; very, very close. The toilets are porta-potties, and the showers are pay showers, I believe there are only 2 showers. Laundry is available near the... More
