“Amazing boondocking location for exploring Grand Canyon”

Reviewed Dec 05, 2018

Overall Rating

We loved this spot and would’ve stayed longer if we could get our furnace to kick on with the 19 degree weather! When you turn down the road, keep going until you go through the gate and you’ll see the Kaibab National Forest sign. There is an info board, though we picked a roundabout prior to the signage. Fire pit was all ready for us!... more

34’ class A and tow car fit here no problem, road in good condition but looked like it could get muddy if wet. Saw sunrise from the fire tower by Arizona Trailhead. My at&t worked “off network”

“Very serene place”

Reviewed Oct 23, 2018

This place is really nice, we stayed here in our 25ft converted shuttle bus one night with absolutely no problems. The second night we got really stuck (our inexperience) . If it has rained and the ground seems muddy id be cautious with heavier rigs especially without 4 wheel drive. An amazing man helped us out and towed us to safety. ... more

Came in from the inside of the park. Drove down to the lookout tower area and immediately found a nice spot within the loop to the right, across from the tower. Pit house and trash receptacles. Didn't have to level at all. Few other people camping in the area, but for the most part pretty quiet. Nearby all the things to visit in the pa... more

“Absolutely awesome!”

Reviewed Oct 02, 2018

It was the first dispersed camping experience for me and my partner. We were a bit apprehensive on how it would be in terms of safety but thanks to Campendium we found experiences shared by others who had camped near the Grand Canyon and were inspired to do the same. Entry and finding our spot - As we entered the forest, there we... more

You’re minutes from the Grand Canyon. And it’s free. What more can I say? We watched the sunset at Moran Point and watched the sunrise at Grandview. Perfection. We rolled in after the sunset and only saw a few vehicles. We camped on the left right before the cattle guard. A few cars went by but it wasn’t a disturbance. We got up early ... more

“Great location ”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2018

Really nice sites to be found here. It was raining when we got there, so we stopped right past the cattle guard. There are a few sites there, but way more around the fire tower. Go there. A few cars passed occasionally, but not a bother. It was very quiet. There is a pit toilet by the fire tower and a one hole out house by the cat... more

“Cozy, like home.”

Reviewed May 15, 2018

Just past the cattle guard we already saw campers setup, and they continued everywhere after that. Despite all the other folks camping it still felt private, and like we had our own space. We stayed two nights, traveling farther in the first night due to arriving later in the day. Our 1977 21' dodge tradesman made it down without a... more

Also know as the FR310, these sites lie just outside the national park boundary in national forest land. Plenty of spots tucked in the pine forest. Perfect!

We stayed here for a week while visiting the Grand Canyon's South Rim and absolutely loved it. Very peaceful and clean location only 14-minutes from the Grand Canyon visitors center. There is a cell tower 1/4 mile from our site near the overlook tower / Arizona trail, which provided blazing fast data service. Everyone loved camping in ... more
