“ Quiet, close to great views”

Reviewed Aug 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Spent 2 nights here 7/16. Quiet Campground. A good choice for astronomers and night sky buffs. Close to Desert View Observation points and the Watchtower. It appears to be an historic structure but was built in 1935. Gas station and Grocery close by as well as prepared food and gift shop (all at Watchtower). Showers are conveniently located in Grand Canyon Village, 25 miles away. Great inexpensive choice for last minute camping trip. First come, First served. Had Cell service but closed down at 9pm, no idea why.

While officially one cannot be over 30' combined truck and trailer - we found a few spots that we could put our 28' Airstream into along with the truck. It is a bit tricky - but not that difficult. Sites are paved and include table and fire ring. All sites have nice (short) trees for screening. Night skies are fantastic and the campground is very close to some of the overlooks, so one can visit them at sunset. There is a 7-day limit. Camp host was very, very nice and helpful. There is no dump station. Water is available. We were able to use our Verizon JetPack and cell phone successfully.
