“The View is amazing”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2018

Overall Rating

The view was optimal and the location allowed us to spread out 4 tents. It felt like we were camping by ourselves, besides the road traffic. The one pit toilet was not clean and filled with flies. While remote you can get to a small town in 20 minutes. Flies were bad this time of year and we hit it during a windy day, I would recom... more

“Awe inspiring. We're camping at the overlook as I type this in. ”

Very quiet. Almost no one here although it is the middle of the week. We're parked maybe 40 feet from the edge of the Little Grand Canyon in a 30' fifth wheel. Incredible view. Over the air TV reception is great. Spring and Fall are the best times to visit. Summer is WAY too hot. If you have a larger RV the choose on of the ... more

“Little Grand Canyon - views, Yikes...”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Really liked this one, it's a keeper and the price is right. Websites, also listed as the 'Little Grand Canyon', are a little confusing on the number of sites available. Along the rim, both sides if you're daring, there are turnouts, some small, some bigger. Road to the Right of the main rim intersection, Restroom, is a little ro... more

“The Perfect Campsite”

Reviewed Apr 03, 2018

Well then. The other reviews are correct. Perfect views (at the edge in campsite #2) (and well, except, can someone put the sun on MY side of the canyon?? 😂 Photos aren't the best with the shadows on the canyon walls across the way. That's like my ONLY complaint! 🤣) It is crazy that places like this are free. Thank goodness they are... more

Just look at the photos for the amazing views this area has to offer. I took off one star for the following things. 20 miles of dirt road into the area. Only 10 designated sites most are not very level and they can be a little tough for a larger rig. We found space 4 with has a large circle turnaround. Could easily fit 2 to 3 camp... more

“Simply stunning!”

Reviewed Oct 12, 2017

Overall Rating

There's not much to add above and beyond the other reviews. Simply stated, if you enjoy your free camping to come with amazing views, quiet nights, and some of the best mountain biking around, this is the spot for you. With a 25 mile of dirt road to get there and lots of camping options, I doubt it's ever very busy here. We stayed ... more

Read a review on FB from Driven N Vibing. Amazing campground. We have a 37 foot Class A, and there are plenty of spots on the loops to the Right on the rim, plus there are a couple 5th wheels camping here right now. This campground is not for the Faint at Hart. You will have second and third thought navigation the 20 miles of so... more

My traveling companion and I camped last night in a primitive site at the Wedge. We were both extremely impressed with the amount of privacy we had... we could not see or hear other campers at all, despite the fact that all the numbered campsites were taken, as well as many of the primitive ones. The view into the canyon is stunning... more
