This campground rates high in my book because it is located in a forest at the rim of the canyon. Campsites are widely spaced and many have some view of the canyon through the trees. Paved pull throughs are handy for bigger RVs and 5th wheels. The big pines give plenty of shade for chilling out during the heat of the day.
On the downside, it's a bit of a hike from some locations up to the one cleaning site for dishes. Also, my site was a premium one, #15, which like #16 is located at the start of the trail along the rim to the lodge. A lot of foot traffic between these two sites, so I would avoid those two next time.
Good general store immediately outside the campground entrance. Showers and laundry, both $1.50, are another 150 yards or so up the road.
Grand Canyon Lodge and the Visitor Center are only 1.5 miles away, and a good place to hang out and dine.
