A wonderful spot

Perched on the rim and a nexus of trails that will take you to everything you want to see in this part of the park. Short hike in (3 miles from Stone Door lot). Views of canyon in winter.

Primitive camping bliss

Several different ways to hike in and many different sights to see. Definitely plan on revisiting. The waterfall here can be close to 25-30 ft. If you're adventurous it's definitely worth a quick plunge

Primitive camping with several approaches

This campground is definitely primitive camping, but it has some of the most beautiful views at the camp and a lot more getting there. This camp can be found at the end of either the Savage Gulf Big Creek Rim or Gulf Trails. It can also be reached from Greeter Falls.

We've camped there three times…

  • Early morning sunshine
  • View from the cliff side of camp
  • Another view from camp (cliff side)
