CAMPSITE: "PRONGHORN

Onsite property owners.

 

NEW FOR 2020! (shared between our 3 sites)

  • A "private" hot/cold shower!
  • One picnic table if needed. Just 3 sites currently, so it is shared.
  • Some really cool aesthetics!
  • Two plastic barrel bins. Trash & aluminum cans. (Please limit to small amounts of trash disposal on property. We must haul manually, thanks!)

If this site is booked, see our other sites, "Lonesome Dove", and "Hummingbird". All sites were planned equal in views and unique arrangements. 

 

CAMPSITE DESCRIPTION

Welcome to nature's planetarium...

On clear nights, sleep under a wondrous view of the Milky Way and expansive stars! Then, awaken in the morning to the local songbirds and buzzing of the local hummingbirds. Bring a camera, as the sunset skies are always unique. The 2.3-acre property has plenty of Juniper and Pinon trees. 

PETS:

We are "pet friendly" as long as your pets are friendly too! We have medium/large family-oriented dogs kept inside or within a fenced area by our home. We have many critters here on our mini-farm as well. 

(Tie outs or leashes required when outside of your tent or trailer, but we may make an exception for well-behaved pets.)

You can pick up a "few" last minute foods and drinks at the local Valle Travel Stop located 4.5 miles away. However, it's best to stock up on supplies prior to arrival.

Please notify us at least half an hour before arrival time if possible.

NOTE: Due to the majority of our guests coming and going to the canyon early in the morning, our latest check-in time is 8:00 PM

 Please be mindful and courteous of our other campers. Our "quiet hours" are between 9 pm-7 am. (music, generators, barking dogs, etc.)

Thanks, and enjoy your stay!

We had a wonderful stay at Suzanne's beautiful campsite. It's about 40 minutes south of the Grand Canyon in a location that's convenient to Flagstaff and Williams. Both Suzanne and her husband were friendly, kind, and beyond helpful. They navigated us to our site upon arrival, offered to guide us out, and even started a fire for us. Their property is gorgeous, with views of the mountains and a lovely sunset. The composting toilet was also a nice touch! I'd recommend a stay at the Hummingbird site for anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful location run by great people.

If you've ever been driving and saw a spot and thought to yourself it would be cool to camp out here... This is it. It's far away enough from the roads to not hear the traffic and have one of the most stunning views of a star filled night. Perfect spot to start your Grand Canyon trip from or to base it out of. There is also a gas station/gift shop a few miles down the road.
Highly recommend.

We had a ton of fun camping here! Suzanne and her family were excellent hosts - making sure we had everything we needed and felt welcome. The location is great for visiting the Grand Canyon and the little store on 180 has everything you could need.

Great campsite and host! A little remote and hard to find in the dark, but if you're looking for a quiet site with incredible stargazing, it's perfect :)

Very low key spot about 30 minutes away from the Grand Canyon. Hosts were great and greeted us when we arrived. The hot shower and out house are nice touches to come Home to after a long day of hiking.

The site itself was well kept and there was plenty of space to sprawl out. Due to it being somewhat off the grid, the stars were absolutely incredible.

The only small issue with the site is that it got quite windy during the day, both days the wind died down around 8pm and was quite calm.

Overall great stay.

We had a great time at this campsite! The shower was warm, with great water flow. The hosts were so nice, and even brought us a tent pole when ours broke! they also gave us some butter we needed and showed us their baby animals! They were very friendly and accommodating, I could not recommend enough!

Suzanne and her husband are both super friendly and awesome hosts. Just 30 minutes away from south entrance of the Grand Canyon. Great low key place to stay and would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay, and everything was exactly as described. It was very clear to us that our hosts have put a lot of effort into creating a wonderful campsite for their guests. We especially enjoyed taking a walk down the road to enjoy some beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
