This campground compares favorably, but not remarkably, with other campgrounds. I rate it "very good". But... given the utter unavailability, as well as VERY high prices of any motel rooms within 20 miles of the canyon, I rate this campground "excellent". I booked the site very last minute, all of the other lodging had been sold out months earlier. Clean, but not spotless. Quiet, especially given how big a campground it is. All of the facilities were well maintained. The check-in was a problem, as the campground office was literally never open while I was at the campground. THey were closed when I arrived at 8PM, closed the next morning when I went out for my run over to the North Rim and back, and closed when I got back at 8:30 PM. I wound up "checking-in" when I "checked-out" on day 3, but they gave me no problems. Given the rustic nature of much of the "in the park" lodging, I think the campground represents an excellent value for visiting an amazing National Park.
