The vibe at North Rim Campground
Drop some North Rim Campground knowledge on us.
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.
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.
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.
