Description

The North Rim Campground is filled with towering trees, shady sites, and the quiet nostalgia the North Rim is known for. Sites for RVs, tents, and groups are nearby to water, restrooms, general store, and even pay showers. A quick jaunt along the Transept trail will take you to the historic Grand Canyon Lodge for ice cream, or along the rim for a sunset show you won’t believe! Continue reading...
The North Rim Campground is filled with towering trees, shady sites, and the quiet nostalgia the North Rim is known for. Sites for RVs, tents, and groups are nearby to water, restrooms, general store, and even pay showers. A quick jaunt along the Transept trail will take you to the historic Grand Canyon Lodge for ice cream, or along the rim for a sunset show you won’t believe! If you’re feeling really adventurous, book a backcountry permit to stay in this campground in the winter! Since the North Rim operates seasonally, you can snowshoe or ski in, and feel like you’re king of the rim in the quiet solitude of the cooler months. We’re North Rim fans and you will be too!

Stayed here at least four times in the past three years. It is great! $1.50 shower for 6 minutes; plenty of time! SHOWERS CLOSE AT 8PM, though! Even if you're not staying, use the NR Campground as the place to shower-up before going to dinner at the Lodge. Campsites are nicely spaced, plenty of elbow room. Restrooms are always nearby. Very quiet. Great star-gazing. Short walk to the Rim via Transept Trail.

pay more for the premium sites if you can get one. They are right on the rim, and have the best views. The tent sites are off to the side, and don't have much in the way of views, but are conveniently located to a great view

Beautiful campground. Make reservations! I tried to get a site I thought would have a view of the canyon. It's not possible - all peripheral sites look into the woods. I was disappointed until I saw site #9. Fabulous! Campsites are all pull through & spaced nicely. We couldn't see the canyon, but you can hear the wind rushing up through it. No hookups. Modern bathrooms. Coin showers on the premises & they stay busy ALL DAY!
There's a trail that will take you the Lodge & Visitor Center. The North Rim ROCKS!
The North Rim does close for the winter, so keep that in mind when looking to visit.

Best campground at GC! Less populated, can be on the edge of the rim to watch sunsets. Just remember to stay safe during lightening storms.

So much better than South Rim, but much chillier, so bring warm gear

Always bring more water than you think. We are prepared for 120 degree weather at all times, especially when you hike down in the canyon, always bring at least two liters of water.
North rim is always much more quiet than the south rim ( in personal opinion) We go once a year and haven't been disappointed!
There is always so much to do so make sure you give yourself at least three full days.

We came here during spring break so it was still a little cool at night, like 35 degrees and during the day it was around 60. Perfect if you have warm gear and like hiking without sweating! The grounds were quiet and not too crowded with plenty of space in between each site. A short hike and your on the rim! Would definitely come back during this time again. Love the GC.
