“Campground full of trees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Need a place to hang your hammock in privacy? Here's the perfect location. Sites were very generous. You just have to drive a bunch. It sure is quiet here. Not that many sites and no reservations.

Pit toilets were fairly clean.

Lots of bugs so bring repellant. I only got one bite, however someone else got over 20. I guess they were more appetizing.

There is a source for water. Also bear boxes. We didn't see or hear of any while we were there though.

Room Tip: Site #10 was big and across from the bathrooms.

The camp area is small...which is a good thing! The sites are spaced fairly far apart, and the pit toilet was a quick walk away. The campground is near an overlook that gives an amazing view of the canyon, and after doing some sightseeing we drove around to the much more crowded south side, which was a different experience indeed.

Spacious sites, quiet and rustic. Pit toilet and bring wood in from town, we also had to go by the ranger's station for water. Having said that, definitely worth it. Great hiking with spectacular views. Just a great camping experience. At night two groups of coyotes yipped at each other from different sides of the canyon. Can't get that in town. To be on the safe side next time I'd bring 5 gallons of water in, the cistern in the campground was dry, but the one by the rangers quarters had water.
