    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.

    Woke up this morning to rain (first on the trip). Started driving to Zion. As we were leaving Grand Canyon we stopped and saw the Watchman Tower and Tuscyan Exhibit. Tuscyan is an archeological site of Indians who lived there over 800 years ago. Watchman tower is a tower that allows great views of the canyon and incorporates Native American …

    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 …

    Saw 3 amazing elk with huge velvety antlers on way into park. Got first view of the canyon at Watchman's Tower. Got really lucky and got a spot at Mather's campground near the Grand Canyon village. Went to Full Moon Ranger walk but ditched because it was a bit boring.

    Driving an RV, phish, check that off my list, pretty easy....so far. We made it to the GRAND CANYON! Jack was amazed & dad was surprised at how built up it is since he was there with my mom on their honeymoon. Bonus is that my dad, with his senior pass got us in free & the camp site was $6.00! I will write more later but want to post some cool pics.
