    Great location for access the grand canyon. Some spots even have enough sunlight to get solar gain. Could use more bathrooms tho. 2 star campground that gets a 4 star due to location

    Closest Campground to Grand Canyon Action

    Location and the price were wonderful! The campground is located inside the park very close (walking distance) to Canyon Village. The price is a bargain at $18/night and we did not have reservations. Granted, there are no hookups for that price but the sites were just fine and it was nice and quiet throughout the night.

    This campground was very well managed and in a perfect location for us. We were close to a general store where we could buy almost anything that we needed and close to the free shuttle bus stop. As the nights became very cold, we appreciated being able to recharge our computer and use the internet in the warm cafe.

    Getting down to -1 was very cold in the tents and our food being eaten by the crows was all part of the experience by the Grand Canyon.

    The facilities were great. Thy included a shower (2.00 shower) which was a little pricey for 8 mins of hot water, but you gotta shower you gotta shower. There are laundry facilities on site which is perfect. and they always have a post office and a mini grocery store with in walking or driving distance. the grounds where clean. quiet hours are between 10pm-6am it was dead quiet between those hours other then that just coming and going of other campers.

    Phew! Wesley slept through the night. He still had a headache and was starving, but felt better overall. Upon waking, Rees rode his bike to the camping office to ask if there was a bigger, more level RV site available for the next 2 nights. He was given a list of several sites that fit those requests and checked them out. He returned to let me know …

    After breakfast, we drove the car to the Bright Angel Lodge. We parked and walked to the Bright Angel trailhead. This is 1 of only 2 trails that go down into the Grand Canyon. We hiked about 1 mile down, to catch the beautiful views and take pictures in the 2 famous tunnels. We …

    What do you say about the aptly named Grand Canyon.... Wow, Gorgeous, Amazing, etc. Name an adjective that has positive attributes and it will apply to the Grand Canyon! What truly amazes us is how most people spend hours, even days, getting here, then spend only a few minutes viewing the canyon, then leave! On the other hand, only a few spend the …

    We started our day by visiting Mather Point to view the Grand Canyon. Wow. Then moved on the S. Kaibab Trail to Ooh, Aah Point. There is no way to adequately describe the canyon, but words we came up with were: awesome, beautiful, colorful, has great views, rugged wild and has desert landscape. Our hike was no problem going down, but we huffed and …
