Nice and quiet.

Went camping during the winter (Jan) in a Tesla Model 3.

First come, first serve campsites. 15$ a night.

Campfire setup ready to go, nearby market to buy supplies. Bench at each campsite, nearby restrooms and water. Trash disposals.

Nearest supercharger in Tusayan, about 10 miles away from the…

Not a bad spot when in Grand Canyon NP

Only the Pine Loop was open due to seasonal closures, but still plenty of sites to choose from. All of the sites are fairly close together with minimal privacy between. Bathrooms were well maintained. Cell service was great, and we often saw elk and deer roaming through the sites! Would stay again…

Nice spot right in the village

I stayed here overnight on my way to North Rim and thought for the price and location to the village it's hard to beat. Only limited sites are available during the off season when i was here in December. Site are decent spacing between eachother but not super far. Cell service on VZ was excellent…

Quiet but busy

The trees here are very thin so you can see quite far. Many spots down this road so you can have your pick but you can see everyone. From our spot you can see 5 cars, and we are hundreds of yards apart. Otherwise it's very quiet.

Great location

Perfect for exploring the Grand Canyon for a few days. You can walk to the canyon rim or walk to shuttles that will take you anywhere in the park. Grocery store also within walking distance (10 min?). Wildlife wander through camp grounds. Some nearby trails are good for walking the dogs, just keep…

A beautiful place to be!

Great place to rest after a long canyon hike. I prefer remote camping in the Canyon, but if you are in this area it is a nice respite. Camp spots are a bit close, but they are covered which is a nice relief from the sun.

Very well kept!! Clean bathrooms and close to pretty much everything. Within walking distance of shuttle rides and the general store. Sites are pretty much level, so great for rent camping.

Easy to get to, lots of space, sites of all sizes! Make sure you go deep enough to see all the dispersed sites, there are plenty of them. Enough space in between to keep things private and its not a far hop to town if you need something.

Free camping near GCNP

Free camping along the rode, we passed about 10 people before coming to a spot from GCNP. Camped next to the watch tower. Our spot was close to road so lacked toilet privacy, but the other spots were farther off the road. Perfect spot to camp and drive 5 minutes into GCNP.

Dispersed camping outside Grand Canyon. Secluded.

This place was great. The road is right outside the GC south rim entrance. As others have said, you won't start seeing campsites until AFTER the stable. If I didn't know that, I would have called it a bust and turned around. We arrived on a Wednesday night and passed several cars/RV's before…

Alone in the woods

Super easy to get to, just take the last left available before getting into GC on Moqui Dr. and drive all the way down past the stables and you will see sites open up, plenty to choose from. The first little bit of the road is clearly marked no camping. Picked a nice little secluded spot not very…

Great spot

Really nice spot big enough for 4-6 trucks. We got to hear coyotes all night. Pretty nippy that night. Right at the gate of the Grand Canyon. Had a few people come flying by since the road is right at the camp site but it wasn’t too bad.

Will be back

After 5 days in Moab, it was a nice change of pace to be in the woods. This campground is beautiful and walkable to GC village, market, and rim trail access. There is a lot of wildlife. I saw some elk on the grounds as soon as I pulled in and heard a pack of coyotes howling when I woke up at 5:30…
