The Campground is situated in the Kaibab National Forest and is a short drive from the north rim. It can be used by RV's and tents. Some of the spots can be reserved, others are first come first serve. Costs 18$ per night. Payment is done with an envelope you pick up at the entrance. Find an open spot, fill... More

Booked 2 nights camping on a tent site but stayed only 1. When we got to the camp ground our site was marked, clean and easily locatable with a table and fire pit, drop toilets not too far away (and not too close) and they too were clean with more than adequate loo paper. Views across the valley to the... More

This was an 8 day stay at the North Rim and the only available reservable campsite at the time the reservations were made approximately 4 months ago. It is convenient to the National Park entrance, at 4 miles away. It is $18 a night for a site. There are pit toilets that are quite clean but I noticed that 1/2... More

We stopped by the campground store for a cup of coffee, and a few other groceries. The store had a booth in it, so we asked if we could sit and eat breakfast. The blonde woman with glasses behind the counter reluctantly said yes. Then she continued to treat us like dirt. She acted as if we bought nothing and... More

We stayed there for 2 nights on a tent site (#22). This is a primitive type of campground so don't expect hookups at your site. But the restrooms and a water tap are always nearby. The site was large enough for a 6 persons tent. The place is really beautiful.

Unless you do not need a table, avoid site #13. It is very long and the pull through slopes a lot so you will need good levelers. I have a 13' trailer and had trouble getting it level. Despite the enormous size of this site, the tent area and trailer are located directly on the road, with no vegetation to... More

The North Rim campground was nice, but Demotte was more rustic and isolated shady, and peaceful. Deer were in the nearby meadow each night. Bison just down the road. Camp host Tim was lovely and helpful. Limited facilities (bathroom only) were neat and tidy, not a bug in the bathroom (no flushing toilets), and no bad smells! Strict rules keep... More

We stayed at this campground because we could not get into the North Rim Campground. The campground is all packed red mud with some gravel, and it rained on and off for 2 days, so everything stayed wet. The sites are large and our site, 33, was a pull through with great views of the forest. The hosts, Tim and... More

This seemed to be the closest campground outside of the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. It's about a 25 minute drive to the park. The area and park are absolutely gorgeous! I felt like we'd stepped into a Christmas card. Stunning views of the forest and a verrry long and beautiful meadow that runs for miles. Sites are... More

We had no real schedule on our week-long bike trip. Finished up at the North Rim kinda late and gave this place a shot. Absolutely quiet and tucked into the heavenly Ponderosa pines. Wildlife all around. Host was super-friendly and knowledgeable. Set us up with 3 bikes/2 tents on a roomy site for $27. Pretty primitive, pit toilets w/o sinks... More
