My friends and I stayed at the campground for our trip to havasupai. The only downside was that there were no campfires allowed. We hiked in early (left at 0330 and got there at 0800) and had an awesome campsite on high ground. Sleep on your car at the trail head for a few hours and leave early in the am. there is nowhere to get gas food or water for an hour and a half before the trail head. Be prepared!!!!! We set up tents and hammocks. It gets hot at night and the hammocks came in handy. It did rain a few times and it was nice having tents. There were bathrooms where you sit on the toilet and do your business and then dump a scoop of wood shavings into the toilet, which helps everything decompose. It didn't smell good but it seemed a lot cleaner and fresher than a porta potty. It's 17/per person per night for camping and 40 for entrance. It is expensive considering you are camping but the location is beautiful and I would say its worth hundreds for the experiences we had. There is a natural spring that runs out of a faucet for clean drinking water. Do not drink out of the stream unless you have a really nice filter! Bathing in the river/streams/falls is fine with biodegradable soap. The water is beautiful clear blue and the rocks are red. I felt like I was at a giant water park! I heard that the village was dirty and that the Indians were rude, but they were very friendly and it was pretty clean everywhere overall. Bug spray comes in handy at night. It seemed hotter between 10-3 and then it started to cook down, it was typical to rain in the afternoon (there was a 30% chance of rain) but that didn't hold us back, we just took a power nap. It was not too hot for us going in July, the weather was perfect!!!! Hike out early, absolutely no later than 5 am at the very latest. It's 8 mile for he village and 2 more miles to the campground from there. The hike in is easy and it's the hike out that is hard because of the incline and switchbacks on the way out. DO NOT RENT A MULE when you check in the first day at the visitors center. This is how they get you and there are no refunds. Our friend
Paid for a mule when we first checked in, got blisters in her feet and fell a few times so she decided to fly out with her pack. Unfortunately she was not able to get a refund on the mule. The falls are all gorgeous. There is a fun waterfall to jump off that you have to climb up 20 feet (so fun). Mooney falls you climb down a cliff/cave with chains and ladders to assist you (reminds me of Angels landing in Zion's national park) and it was beautiful, just 0.5 miles from the campground. From Mooney falls its 3 miles (each way) to beaver falls which takes 1-1.5 h each way. It is so great and there are tons of pools to play in, and a 50 foot cliff to jump off. Old navajo falls is dried up but there is a new navajo falls now known as rock falls, good place to swim under the falls. Bring hiking or tennis shoes for the main hike and when you are there have a SECOND PAIR of shoes for the mini hikes and playing in the water. Chocos are pretty good but I loved my drainmakers from Columbia sportswear. Come prepared with water to hike each way there is no where to fill up on water besides the campsite or you can buy some At the village. The cinnamon Navajo fry bread is delicious. Prepare to bring all your food and stove in your backpack if you are legit camping, if not there is a cafe and lodge in
town. It was so fun and beautiful. The hike takes on average 5 hours each way and stay there 3 days to make it worth it!!!!!!!!
