The vibe at Big Spin Ranch, Grand Canyon
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This little slice of unobstructed land is the perfect home base for anyone looking for a Grand Canyon adventure. It is located right in between Route 40 and the Grand Canyon (about half an hour from each). Just far enough off the main road that you really feel like you're getting an authentic camping experience. We were able to stop here on our way to the Grand Canyon, pitch camp and snack a little, then jet off to catch the sunset over the Canyon. We were thrilled to discover a jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring sky bursting with stars upon our return. It is also only an hour from Flagstaff, so on our way back into civilization, we were able to grab some modern comforts (like Chipotle!). Big Spin Ranch is the perfect destination for anyone looking to park their RV on their midwest adventure or pitch their tent under one of the most beautiful night skies I have ever experienced.
Great location if you’re planning to visit the Grand Canyon! Far enough from the highway to be quiet, but close enough to get back on the road quickly in the morning. Easy enough to find with the help of the Big Spin Ranch sign. I didn’t have any problems and would stay again if I was back in the area!
The address in Google Maps takes you to the exact location, off a dirt road with almost no traffic. It's a bit tough to see the sign for the site in the dark, but we still found everything pretty easily in the night. Spots are really disbursed all over with fire pits. The landscape is very gorgeous and I don't think the pictures for the site even do it justice.
