The vibe at South Rim
Drop some South Rim knowledge on us.
The South Rim has a good amount of first-come, first-serve sites. I had no trouble finding and reserving a spot! Great privacy between sites, and trees are abundant. No sinks or mirrors in bathrooms, but you'll survive. Great site!
We had such a good experience at the South Rim campground. We didn't have a reservation, but were able to grab a great site in loop C. The sites are fairly close together but there are trees and bushes separating all of them, so you feel fairly secluded. If you go, be sure to check out the evening ranger program and look through all of the astronomer's telescopes. We saw Jupiter, Saturn, a binary star and more!
