We have had an absolutely amazing experience staying on the campground. It is very close to the edge of the canyon, so we even had supper at the edge. The restrooms are clean, the general store has wifi.

This is one of the most scenic campgrounds I have stayed at. The rim of the canyon was just a short walk from our spot. The spot we had was very clean. It was right by fresh water and a close walk to the bathrooms. We only had a tent but there were plenty of nice spots to put the... More

We were a tenting family, in a sea of RVs and Europeans. Our site was #14, which was clearly meant for an RV (not a tent) because the land was so slanted, heading towards the canyon. I think an RV would park on the asphalt and be fine. Perhaps the tent section would have been less slanted, but that section... More

I have to say this is by far the most scenic campsite I've stayed at. We were in T-4 site with rim views for 2 nights. They have assigned parking spot for each site, and it's about 15 feet from the sandpit, with trees/logs in the middle. They have sandpit area where you can set up your tents as they... More

Even though we could use dead and down wood for campfire from outside the park, a law enforcement ranger will interrogate you and do a background check on you for having it. They doubt where you get it. If you buy wood save your receipt. They inspect your campsite for anything your doing wrong and will question your nationality by... More

Loved our space. Each space offers its own fire ring and table. The space did require us to work to get our trailer sitting level, so be sure to bring your leveling devices. There was a good combination of tenters and RVers. This is a purely dry camping campground with no water, sewer or electricity. Be sure to have your... More

Make sure you get reservations ahead of time, especially if going during the summer! I booked mine 6 months in advance and had to take a group spot (which is $50) because all the other campgrounds where booked already. Great isolated area, neighboring campers are friendly but everyone seemed to keep to themselves. The office where you check in at... More

My family of five stayed at North Rim Campground in our 28 ft RV. The canyon is literally just a short hike away from all of the camping sites, and some of them actually have a view. The ranger station nearby had a plethora of activities for the kids to do, and the adults too. One night while we were... More

You can't beat the location of the North Rim campground in the Grand Canyon. It's just a short walk from the canyon itself, and a perfect spot to swap campfire stories with your fellow backpackers and day hikers. Had an unbelievable time hiking the canyon. Just be sure to bring warm gear for spring and summer nights … the temp... More

3 friends and I came here for the day, just after they had closed everything down for the winter. It is way off the beaten path. Nothing but a little store/restaurant(Jacob Lake) within 60+ miles. So definitely come prepared. I've been to the south rim, but I truly loved how the north side had some vegetation in the canyon. It... More
