This Campground is one of the best we stayed in. Even though it's the biggest in Grand Canyon, it's very peaceful and even quiet. After 9pm there was a complete silence. Elks were everywhere (the closest I have ever been to one)! The sites are partly shaded so it's not too bad in the summer.

Just spent two nights here on Pine Loop (site 290). Enough space for two small tents and a lot of privacy. Unlike Lodgepole at Sequoia (where we had just recently rented as well), this campsite felt spacious, personal and comfortable. Highly recommend.

This is a great campground. It is beautiful, there are elk that walk through it, the bathrooms are clean (and heated), showers and laundry are available, the sites are generously sized and somewhat private, and it is conveniently located in the village. The village market in ridiculous. It is a complete supermarket. You could show up to camp without any... More

Our campsite was very large and wood. It came with a picnic table and fire pit. When camping there remember that as a whole the Grand Canyon is like a very busy amusement park that cost 30 dollars to get in. There is a line for just about everything. That being said, the campsites are very nice. I recommend viewing... More

Spent 6 days with the family at a wonderful camp site, very clean with fire ring, picnic bench and restroom and showers close by. This is a tent camping area although I did see RV's with no hook ups. I booked 4 months in advance to get a site on the out side without someone behind us. This paid off... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. Our campsite was spacious and pleasantly shaded by pine and juniper trees. Pity there was no hot water in the shower block, but apart from that it was a great campground. The nearby store in Grand Canyon Village was well-stocked and provided a decent range of food items. Overall, camping at this... More

Luckily they had a cancellation the eek before we left for the GC, so worth the experience staying here. Everybody staying there was friendly and jovial. It's within walking distance of the park store and out of the way from all of the commotion at the large visitor center.

We're not normally campers, but to see the Grand Canyon on a cross-country trip my son booked two nights at this campground. It was a great experience all around. The tent sites are spacious and well-spaced, with plenty of tent space, fire rings and picnic tables, adjacent parking, convenient and clean rest room facilities, trash and recycling containers, fresh water,...

This was a nice campsite with nice facilities. The roads were a little narrow, but nothing to major. We had a RV, we managed to maneuver our way through. Close to Shuttle bus stop. It was busy, but still quiet enough not to hear other campers. we stayed. Enjoed our stay.

We had a lovely two night stay here. We managed to get a site on the outside of one of the loops which was huge and very peaceful amongst lots of trees so it was fairly private and not too close or far from the bathroom. We could also walk to catch the shuttle bus easily. Staff were friendly and... More
