We stayed 2 nights in site 7 right on the Bright Angel Creek! (we think...we got there early and had our pick!) We hiked down South Kaibab, 3.5 hours, and hiked up Bright Angel, 6 hours. The site was clean and well maintained. There is are clean flush toilets and potable water. We purchased the steak dinner, which was delictable... More

My wife and my two teenage sons hiked down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon with a guide. We brought our own food, water, tents etc. We stayed in the Bright Angel Campground, located very close to Phantom Ranch. It was simply an outstanding experience for all of us. I loved every part of this experience. From the long... More

Stayed here for 1 night with the family in late June. Booked our spot three months ahead of time. As we were travelling from overseas we didnt have any camping gear but were able to rent all we needed at the Grand Canyon General Store. We took the South Kaibab Trail down to the campground. Arrived around 11am and took... More

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
