“Havasupai camping was good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I stayed at the campground for our trip to havasupai. The only downside was that there were no campfires allowed. We hiked in early (left at 0330 and got there at 0800) and had an awesome campsite on high ground. Sleep on your car at the trail head for a few hours and leave early in the am. there is nowhere to get gas food or water for an hour and a half before the trail head. Be prepared!!!!! We set up tents and hammocks. It gets hot at night and the hammocks came in handy. It did rain a few times and it was nice having tents. There were bathrooms where you sit on the toilet and do your business and then dump a scoop of wood shavings into the toilet, which helps everything decompose. It didn't smell good but it seemed a lot cleaner and fresher than a porta potty. It's 17/per person per night for camping and 40 for entrance. It is expensive considering you are camping but the location is beautiful and I would say its worth hundreds for the experiences we had. There is a natural spring that runs out of a faucet for clean drinking water. Do not drink out of the stream unless you have a really nice filter! Bathing in the river/streams/falls is fine with biodegradable soap. The water is beautiful clear blue and the rocks are red. I felt like I was at a giant water park! I heard that the village was dirty and that the Indians were rude, but they were very friendly and it was pretty clean everywhere overall. Bug spray comes in handy at night. It seemed hotter between 10-3 and then it started to cook down, it was typical to rain in the afternoon (there was a 30% chance of rain) but that didn't hold us back, we just took a power nap. It was not too hot for us going in July, the weather was perfect!!!! Hike out early, absolutely no later than 5 am at the very latest. It's 8 mile for he village and 2 more miles to the campground from there. The hike in is easy and it's the hike out that is hard because of the incline and switchbacks on the way out. DO NOT RENT A MULE when you check in the first day at the visitors center. This is how they get you and there are no refunds. Our friend
Paid for a mule when we first checked in, got blisters in her feet and fell a few times so she decided to fly out with her pack. Unfortunately she was not able to get a refund on the mule. The falls are all gorgeous. There is a fun waterfall to jump off that you have to climb up 20 feet (so fun). Mooney falls you climb down a cliff/cave with chains and ladders to assist you (reminds me of Angels landing in Zion's national park) and it was beautiful, just 0.5 miles from the campground. From Mooney falls its 3 miles (each way) to beaver falls which takes 1-1.5 h each way. It is so great and there are tons of pools to play in, and a 50 foot cliff to jump off. Old navajo falls is dried up but there is a new navajo falls now known as rock falls, good place to swim under the falls. Bring hiking or tennis shoes for the main hike and when you are there have a SECOND PAIR of shoes for the mini hikes and playing in the water. Chocos are pretty good but I loved my drainmakers from Columbia sportswear. Come prepared with water to hike each way there is no where to fill up on water besides the campsite or you can buy some At the village. The cinnamon Navajo fry bread is delicious. Prepare to bring all your food and stove in your backpack if you are legit camping, if not there is a cafe and lodge in
town. It was so fun and beautiful. The hike takes on average 5 hours each way and stay there 3 days to make it worth it!!!!!!!!

We recently camped 3 nights here. After you make the 10 mile trek to the campground the only thing you'll want to do is to grab the first available site and collapse. Gather up your energy and walk a little farther down through the campground. You'll come to a tree canopy that covers both sides of the flowing creek and the campsites there. You'll appreciate the shade the trees offer and you'll have creekside property! There are about 10-12 campsites available in that area. The only downside to this section of the campground is that you will have a nice little trek to the natural spring water...your only source of drinking water in the canyon. We drank the water straight from the spiket. It was clear, clean and delicious. We used both hammocks and tents. The weather was warm enough to sleep comfortably in either one. There are 4-5 bathrooms scattered throughout the campground. They are clean and were always well stocked, but can get smelly with the heat. Avoid the middle stalls; no windows for circulation.

Difficult to get to, but so worth the effort. Make sure you get an early start for your hike in and out. The campsites are awesome. The bathrooms were well stocked with toilet paper and hand sanatizer and pretty clean. The waterfalls are beautiful. Enjoyed every minute of this trip

Well I'd have to say there's really no way you should rate this below a 5 out of 5....for starters Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls are absolutely gorgeous. The blue green water and calcified pool that flow beneath are a stark contrast to the red cliffs surrounding. The campsite is great, the lush vegetation throughout the creek trail down to Mooney/Colorado River is just amazing.

As far as the people some are friendly some are jerks - I dont expect them to be nice to me seeing as how Im white and well, we know whats happened...
When I took the Helicopter the credit card machine worked just fine but the guy was extremely rude to me - I had to check him but he at least saw I wasnt a punk (interesting story...).

I am not reviewing this place as a "resort" or "hotel" because thats not what it is its one of the most beautiful places on Earth and its very cool that you can go there for pretty cheap.

We camped one night here .. this place is so nice and chilly and beautifull. Across 1 mile or so you just walk along the river, left and right there are multiple spots in the shade to camp. Couple of restrooms are there with sanitizer dispenser, no washing or shower options as far as I could see, but guess what, there is a huge shower called Havasu Fall :) .. it has its price, ok, 125$ with reservation, but it is worth. Everything: the hike, falls, camping, perfect 2 days!!!!

I went with some friends two weeks ago, and it was perfect conditions. The water was warm, the nights were a little cool, but the temperature during the day was around 80. We visited Navajo, Havasu, Mooney, and Beaver Falls. Overall, we had an incredible trip. Here is a short video that highlights our experience. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWPSyFptntE

my experience and the hike was awesome. I misjudged the hike and when we went down it took me almost six hours to get to the falls. i was tired and exhausted but the first time i looked at the falls all my strength returned back. The hotel seems like is always reserved so we had to camp and i ahve never camped before so i was under prepared for that too. the helicopters operate only on thursdays fridays, sunday and monday and i was getting out of the reservation on saturday so i had to get horses. i have never ever been on a horse and the people were nice enough to help me manage them. I actually thought the people were nice enough ( may be because i was expecting them to be down right rude- based on previous reviews). They showed me my way and whenever i greeted them , they greeted back ( what more would i want). i kept my questions to minimum and just enjoyed the nature rather than people. i do think that they should put more signs in the hiking trail because it seems never ending. coming back up the horses took four hours, they slowed a little because we were bad riders but still. Also i did not notice it said before, so i am point out that the trail seems a little sandy, so your feet go a little in the ground when walking, i thought it made the hike harder. But if you are planning to go, please do and enjoy your trip, make memories because you will be proud of it
