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

We often camp in the Kaibab National Forest when visiting the Grand Canyon North Rim. It is beautiful and the forest service roads are well maintained with many campsites along the roads. There are a couple of roads that go out to the rim, and it is not at all crowded there. We saw one other car in the whole... More

After my failure on visiting the Grand Canyon (because it was closed and it's not open until May 15) I spent some time in Kaibab's forest. Surprise that I get to see mule deer, whitetail deers, and some weird big black birds that look like turkeys. Overall cool nice experience due to the wonderful weather and the wildlife.

It was beautiful. For nature lovers it's a must-see. We drove through as we were traveling from the Grand Canyon toward Bryce Canyon. We don't get to see trees like that in Oklahoma or Missouri!

It is a 45 mile drive to the North Rim and you have to drive through the Plateu and National Forest to get there. It is a very nice drive but there isn't much to do along the way.

Wonderful drive along the plateau, with forest and wide open meadow. Oh yes, even the odd herd of bison
