“Be very careful!”

Reviewed Aug 09, 2017

Overall Rating

These are very rough roads and not maintained, lots of very deep ruts with standing water. The dead-end, "nowhere to go but back" turn around, @ 14 miles in (off of paved roads) would not accommodate our 30' 5'er (had to maneuver, as much as possible, unhook and move the truck to 90 deg. re-connect and hope). Camping spots are tight, v... more

“Best camping ever!!”

Reviewed Jul 27, 2017

Overall Rating

My husband was a little suspect driving the road to the campsites, but once we made it we were thrilled with the campsite and view! Right on the North Rim. Quiet and gorgeous. It was a full moon when we were there and seeing it come up over the canyon was spectacular. It is very remote, so make sure you have everything you need bec... more

“Unreal experience right on edge or north rim”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2017

Overall Rating

Easy (albeit slow) drive up a well maintained hard packed gravel road in our 32' Winnebago to find several spots right on the rim. Never had a view from a campsite like this! So quiet and peaceful too. Weather was incredible (highs in 70s, lows in 50s). Perfect for a cool break from the summer heat. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

“Great spot, great views, great location”

Reviewed May 25, 2017

Overall Rating

We were looking for a place to stay close to the North Rim. We stayed on weeknights in late May in our 25 foot MH. We followed FS 611 for about 6 miles to the turnaround at the end. The road is gravel with just a few bumpy spots which were no problem with slowing down. Signs ask for no parking within half a mile of the East Rim View tr... more

“Spectacular Camping on the Rim”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2015

Overall Rating

When we first arrived, we dropped our trailer off at the beginning of Forest Road 611 so we could scout out a campsite. We drove about 5 miles down the road and found a spectacular site right on the rim. The only complaint is that it was a shared spot: 36.439427, -112.079040 The next day, the spot next door opened up. It was complet... more

When we first arrived at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we had a fantastic boondocking spot with a view, but it was a shared spot. The next day we moved to the site...
