“In the pines...”

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

Overall Rating

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

Reviewed May 03, 2018

When you turn on the Coconino road, you can't camp right there, you must continue past a cattle guard when it becomes the National Forest, about 1 mile from the main road. You can clearly see there's a few spots to camp. The road can be rough, but totally accessible for almost any rigs. We had a Class A as our neighbour. Just watc... more

Nice and spread out spots in the Kaibab National Forest right off the main road once in Grand Canyon National Park. 10-15 minutes from the main Visitors Center. Road is pretty wash boarded in spots 4wd recommended when wet.

“Fabulous ”

Reviewed Oct 23, 2017

Overall Rating

The instructions to Grandview Lookout were spot on from Google Maps. We have a 33 foot motorhome pulling a Subaru Outback and had no problem finding a site to camp. The first half mile in were rough but better after that. Very quiet and amazing star gazing! Views from the lookout were spectacular. Verizon 4G LTE is excellent!!

“Easy access just outside of Grand Canyon NP”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2017

Overall Rating

This area is accessible before you enter the park - or after you've entered the park. I can't speak to the roads from outside of the park, but entering from inside the park (you cross over on a dirt road entering back into the national forest) is pretty easy. Watch your GPS though, as the road is not labeled and you may not have servic... more

Trailer Village and Mather were completely full so we wandered down to this gem thanks to Campendium. We only saw a few other campers while we were there. It's close to the Arizona Trail and about 3 miles from the Grandview lookout. A couple of dead elk or deer. I think the area is used for hunting during season. I didn't get too c... more
