Perfect spot!
Very easy to find and get to. The road in isn’t too bumpy or long.
Great sized spot. Could easily accommodated a few cars and tents, but was nice for a solo stay as well.
The fire pit is set below ground level, so even with a little wind it was very easy to start and maintain a fire.
You can see some dwellings in the distance, but you don’t feel like anyone can really see you. Especially from the road, there’s a decent distance between you and local traffic.
I’m a solo female traveler and felt very safe here.
Incredibly warm and thoughtful hosts! Very detailed info provided and very quick to reply.
Easy to find shade. There wasn’t much bug activity, which is amazing for the summer!
There are also two benches/ tables around the fire pit.
I had cell reception the entire time :)
Overall, loved this spot and will be back!

The camping spot was perfect. There was water for hand washing and dishes. There was an adorable little latrine with all the things one would need! The fire pit was lovely and it was easy to find dead wood around the site to make a fire. It was completely secluded. We drove down a long dirt road to get there, which we had to take pretty slowly in our cargo van. But it was perfect! We even had a dragonfly visit us at night. <3

Cara and James’ land was the perfect, quiet place for us to call home for the night. They were very helpful with directions and recommendations. Camp site had everything we needed and then some. Would highly recommend staying here! Just a short 30 min drive to Grand Canyon. We loved it!

A large, flat, secluded spot, very quiet. Great to have a picnic table and hammock. Would stay here again.

The site was clean, well laid out and it was close to Grand Canyon Village. Moreover, the site was quite and private. The owners/site managers were very accomodating and responded promptly to communications. We had a great time during our stay. We particularly enjoyed the sunsets.

Had a great stay here over Thanksgiving! The site was perfect, it was big and everything provided was in excellent condition. The large fire ring was perfect, it allowed for good size fires which was greatly needed since it was cold during our stay. The stars at night were amazing! The kids loved the hammock. James greeted us shortly after we arrived, and was an excellent host! The dirt road leading to the place was a bit rough but taken slow we were able to get our trailer there no problem. I would recommend this place.
