I went solo camping at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (just to prove I could). I stayed in a campground just across the road from the General Store about 12 miles from the entrance to the GC... a very nice campground, too (no showers though). The whole experience is totally different than the South Rim... its much more rustic, remote, and gives you a totally different view of the Canyon. There is great hiking along the rims, or you can hike down the North Kaibab trail for as long as you want (just remember... what goes down must come up!). There are herds of buffalo (beefalo, actually if you want to get picky), flocks of wild turkeys, deer, Kaibab squirrels, etc. And no crowds! If you are camping, keep in mind that you are at a high elevation, and even in August it gets very cold at night! Otherwise there is lodging right at the Canyon rim, but plan well in advance... these rooms go quickly! Dining at the lodge is wonderful... good food & great views. Otherwise, just get a seat on the patio overlooking the Canyon to watch the gorgeous sunsets.
