James and Cara’s campsite is so wonderful! Full privacy, beautiful views (especially the sunset) and things were well thought out. There’s a picnic table, trash disposal on site, great toilet, and even a hammock. We would happily stay here again when visiting the Grand Canyon/Northern Arizona :)

Secluded and peaceful! James is super nice and knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon. Sunsets and stars are gorgeous. Bumpy gravel road getting there. Would definitely stay again!

This was a great little campsite close to the Grand Canyon. Directions were straightforward, and the area felt very secluded (the stars were fantastic) although it is technically right off an access road, and we did see a truck driving around at night and in the morning. Hosts have set up a hammock and picnic table, and on top of that we rented a couple camping chairs (probably not necessary given the other seating). The toilet did the trick. It was quite windy the night we stayed so be prepared for that since you will be exposed to it given the low foliage. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, probably for longer next time!

Great place to stop and unwind! The hosts are very communicative and make sure to give great details On how to find their property. The camping site was simple and perfectly located within their property.

Definitely a great place to get some rest from the road

This was one of the best primitive sites as far as amenities and price goes. There was a hammock, fire pit, picnic table, trash can, and toilet area. The toilet is like one of those travelers bagging types. It was definitely nice hanging out on the hammock.

A lovely, quiet spot to rest on a hammock and stargaze, and close enough to Grand Canyon NP that we arrived at the gates at 6:30am! Thanks!

Great place to stay. I’m familiar with random animal noises so it was an easy nights rest for me. If the cicadas are in season don’t setup under their tree or get prepared to get peed on 😂. Follow directions in email and very easy to find

Site 1 had a nice hammock and table. Kerouac Star Light Vista
