Like all NPS parks, this one is 'dry camping'. Water hydrants strategically placed in park. Length limit of 30' on RV, no big rigs in here. First come first serve, park fills up fast. We were in Spot 42 (?) with good view of desert. Crowded but some spaces on the outside of the loop have privacy. Some people have no concept of 'quiet hours'.... rental rvs and generators...... ugh! we would camp here again We camped at Desert View (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a National Park Service campground. There are NO hookups; it is boondocking at its finest. If you want to get away from the bedlam at the Grand Canyon Village area, this is the place. We stayed in site #22, in the back of the loop. Bring leveling boards or be prepared to use your leveling system if you have one. Absolute quiet, all you hear are the ravens and the wind. Short bike ride or walk to the canyon rim and the watch tower. No facilities at the campground other than restrooms and water spigots throughout the park. No dump station; you need to go to Mather campground (26 miles) to dump. If you love peace and quiet, this is your paradise; if you want hustle and bustle and hookups, go to Trailer Village. Not reservable; first come, first served, but we had no problem finding a site in September. We loved this place and will definitely return. We camped at Desert View (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
