You can't make reservations here, so be sure to show up early. There's a great secret trail near campsite #46 to the edge of the canyon.

This is. A very baron, crowded camp ground. It is fine for family friendly activities. Not a place to crush case with the boys!

It's pretty easy to get a campsite if you show up before 11am. There's water spouts located throughout the campground. Clean restrooms and a helpful park ranger. Well maintained.

Head here later in the afternoon to beat the crowds and see a magical show put on by mother nature. And if you catch the site after a rain event, you might even get lucky enough to see a double rainbow!

If I come back I would hands-down camp here over any of the other campsites in Grand Canyon. It's smaller, more secluded than other campgrounds in the park.

You can walk to amazing overlooks of the canyon, and the desert tower is a hidden gem full of history definitely worth checking out even if you're just swinging by!
