This is a must do if you legs can handle the hike. We hiked down South Kaibab and stay one night and Bright Angel and then took the Bright Angel Trail back to the rim. Camping permits need to be applied for in advance, the campground fill up quickly. We stayed March 4th and it was already completely booked, we...

Spectacular campground right along the creek. We hiked down South Kaibab in May & stayed two nights along the creek. The Park Rangers are absolutely the best and so helpful and are always present for anything you might need. Phantom Ranch was a short hike away, I highly recommend booking the either the steak or vegetarian chili dinner, the food...

We arrived in our 1988 Lincoln Town Car pulling our pop-up camper to stay at the only full service RV park in Grand Canyon National Park. We enjoyed the park and the magnificent South Rim Overlook, ate a tasty dinner at Maswik Lodge's self-serve cafeteria for about $35 dollars total, and watched a great Navajo drum/dance performance at the rim....

Nice campground. Super nice rangers. Stop at the canteen and grab some lemonade! Make reservations for a excellent dinner while down there. Camp is on the creek, with nice flat sandy sites. Temps are warmer than at the rim so do your research for the time frame you're going so you are comfortable. Bathrooms are simple. No showers!

Gorgeous campground right along the creek. We hiked down South Kaibab in mid-july & stayed in the creek all day once we got to the bottom. (It was miserably hot that day!!) The park rangers are so helpful and are always present for anything you might need. Phantom Ranch is also a short hike away, I highly recommend booking the...

Gorgeous setting, but be prepared for a hike down and up! We were lucky enough to spend two nights at Bright Angel in late October. Loved the sites right on the creek, and the proximity to Phantom Ranch where you can partake in ranger talks and even purchase snacks and a cold beer if you'd like. Were surprised to find...

Spacious site that fit our three tents. We were away from creek. Short walk to latrine. Picnic table, ammo cans for food. Stars. Then the full moon rose over the canyon walls. It was hard to tell where the illuminated canyon walls ended and the sky began.

My dad, sister (14) and I (20) walked down the South Kaibab trail. We left at 5am ish and took us 4 hours to get down. Wouldn't recommend leaving any later as the temperature was already soaring. When we got to the bottom there was a really good range of campsites although highly recommend you chose a shady one. It...

We walked down the South Kaibab Trail and camped overnight here. It was 102 degrees for the high that day. We made it there by 10:00am and picked out campsite #17. It was not next to river but only a short walk away. We had shade right away but it shrunk as the day went along. It did not matter....

Some friends and I stayed here in February after backpacking down the South Kaibab trail. I don't think any of the camp sites were bad. They are all close to the river. Drinking water was available. Bathrooms had flush toilets, but didn't seem to be cleaned very often. The setting was ideal; we met a lot of nice people from...
