“Great Campground and great staff ”

I booked into one of the Walk-up sites. I scored one on the back side of the loop away from the roads. Pit toilets were so clean it was amazing and no bad odor. I was able to ride my atv right out of my campsite to endless trails. I’m going back! There are a pile of places to boondock too. This area is awesome so much to do!

“Great place to camp and visit north rim ”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2019

Overall Rating

Enjoyed our stay. Busy road was silent at night. Small store & gas station nearby.
Weird time zone area confused us as cell towers pinged different times. ;)
Pretty sunsets and star gazing.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend.
Pit toilets and water. No showers.

“Beautiful ”

Reviewed May 18, 2019

Overall Rating

We loved camping at Jacob Lake. It was a beautiful, serene place to camp on our way to the North Rim. The hosts were super friendly. Be sure to look up at the stars! If you get a site near the road, there will be some traffic during the night. Watch your speed around here. We ended up with a ticket.

This place looked beautiful from the highway, and I was disappointed that it was closed on a beautiful day in early November. It’s open mid May to mid Oct evidently.

Can’t blame the crowds on the owners, as they just happen to be near the North Rim of Grand Canyon (70 Miles) away. The sites were small and nothing like the Camp Ground sites at Kaibab Lake, which are also about 70 miles away from the South Rim. Owners were friendly and couteous and the grounds were clean. Bathroom facilities were p... more

“Nice Campground Not So Private”

Reviewed Jan 11, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a nice clean campground, with vault toilets and drinking water available. No hook ups - dry camping. No Dump available. The sites are closer together than you'll find at most National Forest Parks. There are trees at many sites for shade, but not much vegetation to provide privacy. I stayed here four nights and with my seni... more

“Another great campground with only a few minuses”

Reviewed Oct 02, 2016

Overall Rating

We just spent 6 days at this campground and it was great. ACCESS: Right on Rte 89A (at the intersection with 67) it is across the street from the Jacob Lake Inn (Est in 1923). The entrance is easy-there are speed bumps so go really slowly-they mean it when they post 5 MPH) As you enter the self registration board is on the right. ... more

Jacob Lake Campground is located about 1/4 mile from the road to enter the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

We stayed here in September 2015. Sites have lodgepole or ponderosa pines around. In spite of that we were able to use internet and satellite television. Sites have fire ring and concrete picnic tables. The sites near the highway do experience some highway noise. To the rear of the campground is a very nice hiking trail. While thi... more
