        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.

        The perfect place to camp while visiting the Grand Canyon.

        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.

        I decided right off that I wasn't going to take any pictures of the canyon, being that my iPhone is the closest thing we have to a good camera. Too bad as the air quality was exceptionally good and we could see everything beautifully. We spent a couple of days there and had a great time - good campsite (lucky as there were only a few left upon our …

        After a nice breakfast at the motel - which is now a Quality Inn, but has clearly been a Route 66 motel for many years, and has a lot of cool memorabilia around the place - we set our sights on The Grand Canyon. It was a tough choice between the north and south rims, but since I'd decided …

        Once again it was another morning feeling a little bit grim, the late nights were starting to take their toll. For some more than others as Mick had once again crawled into his sleeping bag at around 7 after a heavy session at the casino and now it was 9 and we had to leave to go and see the grand canyon. A greasy mcdonalds can work wonders sometimes and after devouring a couple of mcbreakfasts and supersized coffees we climbed in the car to embark on to the great wonder. In ...

        ... bicyclists as well. If there is a shortcoming to the park, they need wider bike lanes on the roads, or lanes period. I saw a few not really close calls, but almost close calls between cycles and cars. RVs abound as you might guess. I intend to look up cruiseamerica.com, as we saw many with that logo. In case we don't back while we're young enough to tent camp... Thursday we are going to Jerome and on to Phoenix to see some contacts from back home
