We stayed in this campground for 4 nights and loved it. We had plenty of space and a nice fire pit for evening campfires and cooking too. We hiked the entire south rim and have the blisters to prove it.

I have stayed at this campground on 3 separate occasions. Spring, Summer and Fall. I enjoyed every stay. The bathrooms are a nice option and I definitely prefer them to digging a cathole and searching for rocks to use as TP. Nuts and bolts here. The bathrooms have electric outlets without the ground. If you want to use a portable... More

The park is very large but the campsites are very close together so not a place for privacy. The large number of campsites means that the showers and toilet can be crowded and expect to queue up for them.

We arrived here when it got dark and were very lucky we made a reservation beforehand, as the camping was fully booked (end of august). You drive through the forest to the spot you got, which is in the middle of lovely green trees. The spot was spacious with more than enough privacy surrounded. The price was the cheapest we... More

We stayed in #180 which was a pull through. The sites are nicely spaced and we had nothing but open forest behind us for I guess a 1/4 mile then a road. Not much traffic noise to speak of. The standard fire ring and picnic table and plenty of trees. There are plenty of mule deer and elk roaming the... More

Staying in the middel of the park in The Granyon Village. Toilets are there but no fully hook up. In the woods and close to everything, Let your RV behind and take the inner circle shuttle service to the village, to the market plaze, to the visitor center and to the shuttle rims. Absolutely a nice campground to stay for... More

This is an incredible location that we felt privileged to visit, we originally wanted to book to site with hook-up but it was fully booked and I am glad now as this was just a perfect retreat after the madness that is Vegas. The shuttle bus picks up at the campsite for the Village etc. but it is not far... More

Very nice, quiet campground with plenty of shade. Shower and laundry facilities just down the road are excellent too. A very affordable way to stay in the heart of Grand Canyon village. We will certainly be back.

For the price this little gem is great. Very easy to book and locate in the park. We knew what each campsite had (picnic table, parking spot, fire pit). Buses stop there too. Easy to navigate, takes tents, cars, RVs and pets. Very spaced out so hardly heard other campers

Thank you Mr. Park Ranger. Your personal effort to assist us "1st time" Grand Canyon visitors from Georgia was absolutely the help one would expect from a "true" park ranger and from our nations park's representatives. Lucky for us that we choose your window for service - window number 2 was totally useless.... Embarrassed to say, but we had an... More
