“First Experience in a Campground”
Reviewed July 20, 2006

I usually backpack so I'm not used to the "civilization" of a campground but it was great...quiet, clean, easy access to bathrooms and the general store. Very nice campsites with decent spacing and easy, walkable access to trailheads and the Canyon edge - nice place to sit and have morning coffee. I also stayed at the campgrounds inside Zion and Bryce and those were great as well. The only thing I would caution you on...I'm an Easterner and thought the West would be warm if not hot by then. My trip was in late May but it snowed and sleeted one day at the North Rim and got down into the 20's at Bryce at night...80's during the day though. Come prepared for any type of weather.

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.
