My dad, sister (14) and I (20) walked down the South Kaibab trail. We left at 5am ish and took us 4 hours to get down. Wouldn't recommend leaving any later as the temperature was already soaring. When we got to the bottom there was a really good range of campsites although highly recommend you chose a shady one. It... More

We walked down the South Kaibab Trail and camped overnight here. It was 102 degrees for the high that day. We made it there by 10:00am and picked out campsite #17. It was not next to river but only a short walk away. We had shade right away but it shrunk as the day went along. It did not matter.... More

Some friends and I stayed here in February after backpacking down the South Kaibab trail. I don't think any of the camp sites were bad. They are all close to the river. Drinking water was available. Bathrooms had flush toilets, but didn't seem to be cleaned very often. The setting was ideal; we met a lot of nice people from... More

Ok, it's hard to rate this fantastic spot anything other than a 5-star. Because it's in the heart of the Grand Canyon!!! Here's the thing... The campsites are sand. Soft, right? yes indeed! But the wind from the canyon turned blew buckets of sand into our tent - it crept under the fly, through the mesh, and into everything -... More

Loved being so close to the creek. This made sleeping nice. We all took a dip in the creek to cool down due to the warm weather, it was quite refreshing. Having flushing toilets was a great advantage. Our campsite was clean and just large enough for our group.

Camped in site 20. Not on the creek but had plenty of shade from the trees and a short walk to the restrooms. Drinking water is just feet away. Also the creek makes just enough noise to put you to sleep. Would do it again!

Stayed here for the fourth time this month. BAC is always a welcomed site after a long day on the access trails! My recommendation is to take a little time scoping out available camping sites as they vary widely on: size, privacy, amount of shade provided by trees and adjacent rock walls, proximity to drinking water spigot, restroom, ease of...

Stayed at all the campgrounds in the canyon & Bright Angel was my least favorite. Flushing toilets were nice to have but they were filthy. The sandy campsites made for a mess when packing up gear but that's somewhat common. The Rangers were great and we enjoyed the nightly scorpion hunt!

Awesome camp spot if you have your back country permit! Make sure to grab a site in the shade if you are hiking in the hotter months. Use the animal proof food boxes!! The squirrels and ravens are highly trained to rip open your tent/bag to get to your food! We lost a backpack on the first day of our... More

We stayed here our first night hiking from the North Rim to the South Rim. We arrived in the dark so we took the first available campsite we saw. We pitched our tent on the nice sandy cleared surface. They had the metal boxes to put your food and toothpaste, etc. into so the squirrels won't get to your stuff... More
