Rim to Rim in the Grand Canyon is about 24 miles, but that number, though large, is misleading because it doesn't count the elevation loss and gain, which will be more than 10,600 feet. From the South Rim to Indian Gardens is about 5 miles, with an elevation loss of about 3,000 feet. The elevation change is really not significant... More

We decided to break our hiking-up journey on bright angel trail into two parts, and stayed 1 night at Indian Garden campsite. You wont believe that you're in desert, as this campsite is very well shaded and in middle of lush greenery. Toilets are clean, but no flush-toilets like bright angel campsite. Almost all campsites has a good view; but... More

After 2 nights in Bright Angel Campground, we hiked up to Indian Garden for 2 nights. Really nice break from the heat, a lot cooler too due to the elevation up from Bright Angel. More shade as well. No flush toilets, but as pit toilets go, these were pretty nice! The kids and I went to both the 2:00 ranger... More

Our second night of backpacking in the Grand Canyon brought us to Indian Garden campground. Rangers were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space, trees and water. Pit toilets. Picnic tables with covers. More space between campsites than at Bright Angel. Far enough off the main trail that there was no noise. Very peaceful. Make reservations!

Indian Gardens is a lush green oasis sitting at the bottom of the side arm of the Canyon down which the Bright Angel trail wends its way in tight serpentines on its way to the river. As the ground levels off more and more and the canyon opens up ever more to your left and right, with the Tonto Plateau... More

Two couples (sisters and their husbands) on a rim to rim hike from North rim to the South rim. On our third day of hiking, we travelled from Bright Angel Campground to Indian Gardens. After arriving in Indian Gardens, we set up camp leaving the backpacks in camp and took a side trip to Plateau Point - great views and... More

The Indian Garden campground was second on our list of stops for our trip. Most people refer to it as an oasis and I would definitely agree. It appeared to be larger then Bright Angel campground, with more open space, vegetation and shade. The camp area wasn’t secluded at all but it did have a table with a shelter over... More

Each site has its own covered table and pole for hanging rucksacks. You are provided with large metal containers in which to store food. There are a couple of double toilet blocks... More

We requested our stay at Indian Garden in April just as soon as it was possible to do so (For a labor day weekend stay). We faxed in the days we wanted and waited impatiently for the permits to come, and were thrilled when they did. We stayed here as part of a three day trip to the river and... More
