We stayed 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The campground is located right on the rim of the canyon. There are a few sites with views of the canyon. Even if you don't have one of those, it's just a short walk to the transept trail with great views. It's especially nice for watching sunrises and sunsets.... More

This is the first managed campgrond I've ever stayed in that was QUIET. There is almost always a loud party or some yahoo that thinks everyone wants to listen to his blaring music, but not here--at least not on the one night that we were there. This campground was SILENT. (Except for the occasional generator, but that's just background noise.)... More

Although we've been to the North Rim several times, this was the first time we were able to secure a site at the campground. Next time, we will try to reserve in the tent-only section. We had a site on the outside, but it was pretty sloped and hard to find good level surfaces for our tents. The other annoyance... More

This is one of my favorite of nps campgrounds. You have very clean well lit bathrooms placed nicely through the grounds. There is a shower and laundry building at the front. There is a camp store on property right before you enter the camping section. There is a gas station at the front on the drive to the grounds. They... More

We really enjoyed this campground. It's only a short walk to the rim. And about 1.5 miles from the lodge. It's a great way to save money to camp instead of staying at the lodge. A very beautiful place! You do have to pay for showers.

Campground has typical amenities provided by the Forest Service. The sites are very clean and well maintained. Bathrooms are clean and close to campsites. Staff at the store are pleasant and very helpful. No electrical or other "hookups". There is potable water. It was amazing how the noise was practically nothing and no riff-raff to speak of.

Large pines throughout park. Close to North Rim park entrance. Scenic drive to the park. Showers are pay, but water is precious up there. No sewer, but not a problem if staying for only 2 or 3 days. My grandsons voted it as their favorite park on our cross-country RV trip. Aiden: It is like real camping.

Stayed in one of the RV/tent campsites this week before the Labor day rush. Very nice campsites and a lot quieter than the south rim. Restrooms are kept pretty clean by the staff. Only one issue was the car next to our site had their alarm go off in the middle of the night, but that isn't the parks fault.

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
