FREE (and only minutes from the Grand Canyon)
Site Quality 4/5
Our spot was large, flat and level. Road into the site is a well maintained forest road and you only need to drive in about 1-2 minutes.
Facitiy Fun 4/5
There are trails to walk, hike or bike all around the campsite. It's meant for bikers so that is why alot of the spots are smaller I guess.
Natural Surrounding 4/5
Nestled amoungst the Ponderosa Pines of the Kaibab National Forest and so close to the Grand Canyon, with trails all around your campsite. Ample pinecones for fire sarter :)
MINUTES and I mean literally about 5 minutes from the South Rim entrance. About 1 minutes before you turned on this road there was an IMAX and a small shopping area.
This was an excellent place to camp and be near the Canyon if you want to camp for FREE. It was very cold at night but I am sure in a couple of weeks that will change. We prefer to boondock...not only to be more a lone, but also the generator can keep running when the hockey via satellite goes into overtime :) When you go into the Grand Canyon visit trailer services. There is a FREE sani dump/drinking water right beside the Mather Campground. Go early, or late to avoid the line up though.
|we think the length restriction was for camping|
as we fit into the sani dump...no problem and we
are about 56' in toal with the truck.
|Even with all the rees we managed to ge the hockey game via satellite|
