“Okay campground with an astounding view”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2016

Overall Rating

Mostly tent sites, but there are some pull-throughs. You'd need to watch your overhead clearance, though. Vault toilet, a water spigot, bear boxes, trash, tables. Some sites have a view of the canyon. A trail from the campground goes along the rim and has some observation decks. A road just before the campground leads to various other view spots.

“Great shady spot, minutes to fantastic views and hikes.”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2015

Overall Rating

Great shady, treed camp sites with trails along the cliffs edge. I'd say 3 or 4 sites are perfect for campers, one corner spot (I think spot 6?) had a 22-24' class C with plenty of room. There are good hikes to overlooks and a more challenging hike to the bottom of the canyon 1.7mi, 1800' each way. If you want to just relax, drink your coffee on the edge of the cliff and listen to the river below.

No cell coverage.
