Very nice campground. It's about a 30 minute drive to the Village and all the "action", but that's even nice because the drive is smooth with lots of great views and there's always elk somewhere along the way to see. This trip, in early September, we arrived at 7:00 pm and although the sign said "Full", we did a drive... More

As we came from Zion / Kanab direction to South Rim, we entered the park near this campground. We were told that there are 2 campings - this and another one inside the park, closer to trailheads and shuttle (which are approx 40 km further). However, the inside camping usually is very busy, and it is impossible to call them... More

I say "probably" only because we didn't personally check out the other campground options. I read about this campground on Tripadvisor, and coming in from the east, it made sense. As other reviewers have said, great location, great price, and everything you'd need (unless you need a shower, in which case you'll have to drive about 30 minutes to another... More

This campground was perfect. It's a 30 minute drive to the main entrance of the canyon park, but don't let that deter you. There is a bathroom and a sink to do your dishes, but for showers and wifi you'll have to go to the main campground. There is also no lighting, which is a good thing for stargazing. Just... More

Just what we wanted--a quiet low-key night together before an early morning hike. We got there at about noon on a Friday and it filled up pretty soon thereafter. It had everything we needed--bathrooms, fire ring, table, general store around the corner. Easy to check in and set up. All sites are great. If you want something busier then Mather... More

We got a great spot upon arrival at 11am. I know it filled up within a couple of hours afterwards & for great reason. It was a perfect spot for our Canyon visit & we were happy with our choice to stay here rather than Mather. We loved the seclusion from the busy-ness of the park. Keep in mind if... More

My friend and I took a risk and came to the Grand Canyon on a weekend in early June and somehow managed to avoid a bulk of the crowds. Mather Campground was crazy busy, and I'm so glad we didn't even try and camp there and went straight for Desert View. The campsites in NE corner were, in our opinion,... More

Not as crouded as the Mather campground, it's a wonderful place to stay. Restrooms were clean, enough space for one or more tents, enough shade, picknick table, fire pit, a bit of privacy if needed, some really great viewpoints nearby, ... However, there are no showers so you have to drive up to the mather campground. It's everything you can... More

I don't generally like car camping but this place has lots of privacy options. Many sites have their own little drive and the outside rim boarders national forest land. I think we stayed in site 41. We quickly found a walking path and followed it to one of the best views of the Canyon we found anywhere. It felt like... More

This is a great place to camp, away from the hustle and bustle of the Grand Canyon Village. We came in from the east entrance at 8pm and were lucky to get a site (there were just three spaces left). We pitched the tent and walked a shirt distance to the most beautiful sunset view of the canyon. It was... More
