THE Grand Canyon car camping experience, only accessible to high clearance vehicles such as trucks and Subarus. Only two sites available, and a permit is required. Pack in/Pack Out. Composting toilet available. Hard ground (as is much of the Kaibab Plateau) so tent stakes are useless.

Point Sublime is, well, sublime! Pick up your permit from the ranger station on the North Rim. There are two (2) campsites at the Point. Each has room for two vehicles. The road to get there is a quite long and twisty dirt road. When we were there there were a few sections of deep sand. You can get most any sort of car back there, but you should have some experience driving off road. It's not a place you want to get stuck. Keep your eyes peeled for bison, even in the woods. We came across one blocking the road! Near the campsite at the point, you will have to drive across a fairly exposed ridge that is only slightly wider than your vehicle, with nothing but air on either side. There are a few places to turn around, and plan on spending a couple of hours getting from the pavement to the campsite. Amazingly, there is a bathroom at the campsite. No trash, no water. Just amazing, incredible, stunning views.
