“Outstanding free camp spot!”

Reviewed May 31, 2017

Overall Rating

I camped for free within about 10 miles of Grand Canyon Village (South Rim) right next to Lockett Lake in the Kaibab National Forest. Lockett Lake is about 3 miles south of Rt 64 on FR-310 (Coconino Ridge Rd). FR-310 turns south off Rt 64 about 8 miles (not exact) east of the Visitors' Center. I was surprised to find this beautiful, free camping area so close to the Visitors' Center. The turn south on FR-310 off Rt 64 is very well marked and the first 100-foot section is paved, dirt thereafter. FR-310 is flat and easily navigable in just about any vehicle (sedan - SUV - RV). Only concern would be that it can be muddy and slick when snow is present or when the summer monsoon rains come rolling thru. I camped there mid-May and the snow was gone. There are forested camping spots for miles along FR-310. All very nice. Most are flat and vehicle-accessible. Beautiful area. Tall ponderosa pines. Quiet. Very little traffic. No services of any type. I did not have cell service there (Cricket-ATT).
