North Rim is reservation only and is booked solid 4 months ahead all summer long. Demotte (dee mot) is at 8000 feet, is in a pine forest, is very quiet, and clean. The toilets are vault, not flush. There are no sinks to wash in. The cost is $17, compared to $18 at North Rim. This place is overflow for the park, as no one would stay here if there was ample availability inside the park at the rim. We stayed 1 night and paid for 2. We wrestled a site at the North Rim the 2nd nite and left here early.
The gas station/store across the road is very fair, price-wise.
Plan ahead and reserve a site inside the park. If you want to visit without planning ahead, stay at Demotte and enjoy, because it's still very good.
