We stayed here for 4 nights in September so we could visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Forest Road into the campground is packed gravel, a little rough, but not terrible. Just go slow. The thing that makes this a good campground is, of course, the electric, water, and sewer hookups. There are pay showers, but we did not need them. The surrounding forest is beautiful and the campground was quiet which makes it a winner in my book. I used the laundry and it was very clean and neat. The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is about 40 miles away-a scenic drive. The Rim itself is great with fewer people than the South Rim attracts. We were also able to visit Zion Natl. Park for a day for some great hiking. It was only about an hour and a half away. Kaibab is the only full hookup campground in the area, so if that is what is important to you, you won't be disappointed with this campground. Some of the sites were tight and we had to level the trailer. No big deal. Just bring leveling blocks with you. Our trailer is only 22 feet so there wasn't a big issue with maneuverability, and we saw some huge motorhomes also. The site spacing was ok. Some of the sites have no campfire rings so you better ask if yours does when making reservations.
We weren't there that much but when we were the campground was fine.
