The North Rim of the canyon itself is amazing- this review is for the campground. My husband and I decided to stay at the North Rim campground after reading the reviews about how much more private and less crowded it was than the South Rim campground. We were so disappointed at how close all the sites were! We arrived around... More

First thing.... Here comes ranger. Says NO generators are allowed. I had checked prior with BOTH park headquarters. NO Problem, just quiet between 10:00 and 6:00. It is also posted at kiosk at entrance, just quiet times. They cater to the climbers specifically. Ranger makes his own rules and ignores his climber buddies violations, DOGS running loose, parties all night,... More

Spacious sites, quiet and rustic. Pit toilet and bring wood in from town, we also had to go by the ranger's station for water. Having said that, definitely worth it. Great hiking with spectacular views. Just a great camping experience. At night two groups of coyotes yipped at each other from different sides of the canyon. Can't get that in... More
