Quick stop to end our trip

We stayed here for a night before returning our rented Escape camper van in the morning. They had a ton of facilities like showers (free), laundry(paid), pool and restaurant and convenience store. Close to the Las Vegas strip.

First to Review
Forest camping near the desert

This campsite is located in Kaibab National Forest, near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It’s pretty and primitive. It was fun camping in a forest after so much desert time. I’d recommend checking th S place out if you don’t want to deal with the crowds (and prices) that come with staying at the Grand Canyon. And as long as you have a Parks pass, you can come and go as you please. We asked about hiking and were told there really wasn’t anywhere to hike but there’s an old dirt road we could walk on. We tried it out and it was actually very pretty. And the road clearly had not been used for a very long time. It was remote and provided a lot of wildlife viewing. Some of the pictures are of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. You cannot see it from the camp ground but it is close by.

Small But Mighty

This was our first stop in our camping journey. The space is fairly small but a beautiful area. Hiking trails lead to some dinosaur tracks! There is access to water at the sites. No showers.

Seriously Sandy

Coral pink sand dunes is a really cool place. Coming from the east coast, I’ve never seen anything like it. The sand dunes are incredible and my pictures don’t do them justice. There are lots of opportunities for ATVing and sand surfing. We didn’t try either of those but did joke about 6 miles through the dunes. It was a great leg workout and a neat experience. There are some very nice campsites here. We stayed at a more primitive site but were still able to access the free showers (very much needed after a day in the sand!), water, and bathrooms. The rangers were friendly and helpful.

Don’t skip Valley of Fire!

Some of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen. We made this a stop as a last minute decision and it was probably our favorite location. The White Domes trail is short but well worth it!! The campsites have nice facilities like water, showers, grills and covered (shaded) picnic tables. Roomy campsites and pretty private.
