Yes the Trailer Village is in a decent location and the buses are regular and very helpful. Yes there is cable TV, but who comes to the Grand Canyon to sit in their trailer and watch TV? And yes, we were greeted by a huge bull elk. That being said, there are no showers, and no campfires permitted, the sites are old and crumbling, and the bathrooms marginal, at best. For us, though, the end to a nice three day visit was destroyed by a major sewer problem. As we were preparing to leave, we hooked up to the sewer connection. The sewer tank must have been full to just under the connection, because when we opened the black water valve, the contents would not go into the sewer, and the pressure blew the hose connection off. The end result was a major spill of the contents of our toilet all over the ground on the campsite. We cleaned up the best we could, hosed down the area for quite some time, and then had to store all the dumping equipment. We then had to drive over to the camper service area at Mather Campground, wait in line half an hour, and finish emptying our black and grey water tanks. With all of this, our departure was delayed several hours, and we should have never had to deal with all these disposal issues.
We did advise the attendant when we checked out, and she said she would have the tank pumped and the site cleaned up. Don't know if she did, but if you were on site D-19 on October 9, hope your experience was better than ours, and the site was appropriately sanitized. The attendant was "sorry" for our "inconvenience", but offered nothing. It is incomprehensible that management would allow this to occur, when they are managing a National Park campground.
