This campground was perfect. It's a 30 minute drive to the main entrance of the canyon park, but don't let that deter you. There is a bathroom and a sink to do your dishes, but for showers and wifi you'll have to go to the main campground. There is also no lighting, which is a good thing for stargazing. Just don't forget to pack a flashlight. Most of the tentsites have a bit of tree cover where you can put your tent under if you'd like to sleep in a bit, but I still recommend that you get up to see the sunrise.
As for timing, we got there around 1pm in the second week of september and we had plenty of room.
