Location to North Rim

Nothing exciting about this one, but great location to the North Rim so you can wake up and drive in early. North rim is about an hour south.


We stayed here in June on our way home to Colorado from Utah. We wanted to be near the North Rim of Grand Canyon. It was only a 45 minute easy drive. It is a very pretty campground. There are lots of trees and shady spots. It was very windy and a cold front was coming through. The public lands were on a fire ban so no campfires. We stayed at site 33. There are no utilities or dump station. Jacob Lake Inn is across the street with gas, convenience store, bakery, cafe and gift shop. The vault toilets are very clean and odor free. We have Verizon and had two bars. There is a short trail through the woods which the kids enjoyed.

Clean and Beautiful Setting

Good location to the North Rim. Store, restaurant, and gas across the road. 

Mostly shaded sites among the P-Pine. Nice gravel pads. Concrete tables. Clean put toilets. Great Hosts. Plentiful Hand Sanitizing in toilets. 

A Little road noise.  $22.00 per night. $11.00 with Senior Card. Reservations online with some first cone/ first served. No hookups but Potable water avail.

Camping in the Ponderosa’s

clean campground but can be noisey

I can't believe it's Arizona

The plateau this campground resides on is a welcome rest from the heat of Arizona, and it's your first clue as to how awe struck you will be when you get to the North Rim. The campground its self is well laid out level and has tons of shade throughout the day, there is a gas/service station across the street

Peaceful setting and very close to the north rim

We stayed in the group site B. It was perfect for our large group (22 people total). There was plenty of room for us to set up all our tents. There is a convenience store within walking distance which was so nice. There is a very nice gabizo with grills and a fire pit. We would definitely recommend this campground to everyone.

Great location, pretty and very clean.

This campground is in a great location, only about 45 min away from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It's easily accessible and very pretty. There are some very unique squirrels that prance around and you can hear the bats chirping at nighttime. It is also very clean, the nicest pit toilet I've ever used! The camp hosts are very friendly and do a great job taking care of the place.


We are in a motorcycle tent trailer. The spaces weren’t crowded. There is a gas station/lodge/snacks/gift shop within walking distance. $20 a night but with Senior Pass 50% discount. The basic outhouse bathrooms were cleanest I have seen with soft toilet paper!! The host takes pride in his work. Easy drive to North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

First to Review
Quiet and well-kept.

Spent a lot of time hiking on the trails.
