“Great free dispersed camping in Kaibab NF”

Reviewed Aug 18, 2019

Overall Rating

Primitive dispersed campsites with lots of separation. There is a pit toilet and trash receptacles at the Grandview Lookout Tower. 14-day maximum stay; no permits required. Lots of trees for shade. Most sites are relatively level. Very dark and quiet at night. Easy access to Grand Canyon NP. Also very close to a cell tower; great si... more

“Quiet and convenient ”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night while passing through. We planned to visit the Grand Canyon on our way out west and looked for a spot close to the national park. This location was within 10 miles of the east entrance and main visitors center. No water, electric, or bathroom facilities, but each site has a fire ring. We arrived around 8 pm loc... more

“Amazing - No Reservation Needed in Early July”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2019

Overall Rating

This will now be my go to spot at the south rim. Mather was 100% booked before we even entered the park, when we entered at the west entrance the ranger asked if we were staying in the park and I mentioned we were staying here. She pulled out a separate map and kindly informed me how to get here (not that it was hard). We stop... more

“Great - rather here than mather!”

Reviewed Jun 20, 2019

Overall Rating

It is very hidden in the forest and the paths are very bad. Especially when it's dark, the path looks very scary. But if you drive a mile into the forest you will find many like-minded people on a nice place.

“Felt like we had the whole forest to ourselves! Tricky to get to.”

Reviewed Jun 09, 2019

Overall Rating

I really enjoyed this dispersed area. Had some trouble finding it though. We came in from the East Grand Canyon Park entrance. The GPS wanted to take us around the park entrance off of 64 beforehand but the road was very rough (off road vehicles only). If you are coming from the East entrance of the park there will be a left turn (unma... more

“Nice dry camping spot”

Reviewed Jun 05, 2019

Overall Rating

This area is accessed from within the National Park. It was rather muddy when we first arrived but we found a good spot and it has dried out some since. Water and dump facilities are available at camper services in the Grand Canyon park. This is a great way to get away from the crowds in the park and it is on the Arizona Trail (near fi... more

“Escaping the Memorial Day crowds”

Reviewed May 24, 2019

Overall Rating

Came down to revisit the Grand Canyon and wanted to avoid some of the Memorial day crowds. The park received rain and snow a few days prior, and needless to say mud season is still in full swing! That said, we traveled up the road to the fire tower area but found less muddy spots down near the cattle guard when you first cross from NPS... more

“Great boon docking experience! Cannot believe it was free and sooo close to the Grand Canyon!”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2019

Overall Rating

We had a great time here! So relaxing and peaceful! Quiet, spaces very far apart. We loved our stay, can’t wait to return. However, the way Google maps sent us was WAY the wrong way. We went the wrong way which was very hard on the trailer and took about 30-45 minutes longer.
