We loved our two nights at Bright Angel Campground! The bathrooms were clean, had flush toilets, sinks with soap and hand-dryers. Our site, like most, had good shade and was steps from the refreshing Bright Angel Creek. We stayed mid June and the high in the sun was 120 and in the shade it was 110 - be ready to... More

Hike down the Grand Canyon, Dec. 2013 with my siblings and "special" bro. We had a great time. The campground is clean and was surprised to find a decent washroom there, with a flush. Seeing and touching the Colorado River is an amazing experience for me. We had breakfast/dinner in the restaurant run by the national park (?); i'm not... More

Hiked down from the South Kaibab. Deer in and around the stream/creek behind our campsite. Short walk to the Bright Angel Lodge for lemonade. Also short walk to ranger program for kids. Quiet, peaceful and cool (82 degrees March 24-27).

This was my first time in Grand Canyon so I have a small window into the experience but I had a great time camping here 2 nights in early February. There is a ranger station nearby so I felt secure. The sites are close together so you can't avoid seeing neighbors but I was too grateful to have flushing toilet... More

We hiked down South Kaibab trail in July. Considering hot weather, we had an early start, and arrived to Bright Angel Campground by 9 am. The individual sites were available on first-come first-serve basis, and early arrival helped us pick a perfect location with easy access to Bright Angel Creek and drinking water. The water in Bright Angel Creek is... More

You need to hike down a vertical mile to stay overnight at this campground. And don't forget in the Grand Canyon, what goes down must go up! We stayed one night at Bright Angel campground and it was great fun. Sure at 3pm in the sun it was a balmy 120 F (48C) but there is the creek and the... More

We were unlucky to get Phantom Ranch and decided to camp, although we are not used to. For people coming from abroad, it can be useful to know that it's possible to rent a tent and maybe other stuff at General Store of Grand Canyon Village. We didn't know and brought our own. It was great experience and finally we... More

We hiked down SK trail and stayed 2 nights at this campground. One has to get permit (apply 4 months in advance) from NPS. The campsite is right next to bright angel creek. They have flushing toilets - a luxury in any camping; and we are talking abt camping in middle of grand canyon! No showers, but it's ok. Reserve... More

My husband and I came down the SK trail and camped here overnight and then back up the BA trail. This was almost a magical experience being surrounded by the granite gorge walls, looking up at the stars, listening to the Bright Angel stream. We would have loved to spend more time down here. Sure, it's very basic...bathrooms with flush... More

We just returned from a long awaited second visit to Bright Angel Campground. I had learned from my first visit that I wanted more time at the bottom of the canyon. Since I had made the effort to get down there I wanted time to enjoy the visit. So this time I had asked for and received two nights at... More
