This is a lovely, well-shaded, extremely quiet campground. There are many tall pine trees, but we had no trouble navigating through the park with our 40' fifth wheel. There are no hookups available, but are plentiful water spigots and reasonable generator hours. Internet/ phone service was spotty at best with a little spotty wifi available at the market. Laundry facilities were clean and reasonable. Our site wasn't particularly level and was on the left side of the road, putting our living area on the road side. No worries as there was so much room allotted for the rest of the site. We camped at North Rim Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The mule rides were wonderful, dinner at the Lodge is fabulous, and don't miss the stars from the Lodge veranda! We loved the North Rim- much, much quieter and more laid back than the South Rim.

Wow, this park is great! There are 78 campsites and another 12 tent-only sites, all dry camping. This is the North Rim Campground and operated by the National Park Service on the north rim of the Grand Canyon which is the same location as the North Rim Lodge and Cabins, operated by a concessionaire and location of the U.S. Post Office. I make this distinction because I have seen reviews that associate the North Rim with Jacobs Lake and the DeMotte campground. DeMotte is a few miles away and acts as a sort of overflow for North Rim. North Rim is booked full every day, way in advance. Make your reservations early, like a year early. North Rim Campground is way off the beaten path. Yes, the campground, lodge and cabins are booked full for the entire season (May to October) but the number of people making it to the North Rim is one-tenth the numbers that the South Rim sees. The drive from Flagstaff to North Rim took us about 5 hours with our 5th wheel. The drive to the campground is beautiful and almost worth it by itself, but once you cross Lee’s Ferry Bridge in Marble Canyon it is about 30 miles of uphill. Some sections are long and steep enough that it will push your transmission temperatures about as high as they should go. North Rim Campground is an old, CCC built facility. Technically, there are pull-through sites but don’t let that fool you into thinking your big rig can get in. The pull-throughs are just curved driveways alongside the road. And the curves in many spaces can be very tight with large Ponderosa Pines lining the drive so closely that even pop-ups, Casitas, Scamps, and A-liners sometimes have to be unhooked and positioned by hand. Also, when making your reservation, be mindful of the side of the road your site is on. If you are tent camping it won’t make any difference, but if you have any kind of RV that you want the entry door to face the picnic table & fire ring then you need to pick a site on the right side of the road. The streets are all one way so you can’t (if the rangers catch you) come down a road backwards so you can be turned the right way. But enough of that, this place is gorgeous. There is a mix of Ponderosa Pine and Aspen, wildflowers peak in August, and there are more views of the canyon than you can see in the one week limit of the campground. If you are a hiker they have trails of every kind. Everything from paved walkways on flat ground to canyon rim trails (no railing!); to the multi-day hike to the South Rim. Days are mildly warm, 70’s and low 80’s. Nights are cool. In our few days we have seen anywhere from 41 to 61 for overnight lows. August is monsoon time. There have been frequent downpours and more lightning than I care to be around. This is one of those campgrounds that you have to go to at least once. It is worth the effort. WiFi is available but only if you walk to the campground store and get in just the right spot on the porch. No AT&T phone at all, Verizon is text capable sometimes. If you want to make a call you have to hike out to a point that can see the South Rim where the cell tower is, ten miles away. We camped at North Rim Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

As far as National Park Campgrounds go this one is good. Nice trees and a quiet place with a forest feel. The roads are black top and in good shape. I just wish when they paved the sites they had leveled mine #12. It took four two by sixes under the right side tires to get the fifth wheel level and the front to back was off quite a bit too. I did notice some of the sites were pretty level so it’s a roll of the dice on getting a level one. But then again it is a Park Service campground and the scenery and surroundings are worth any problems. We camped at North Rim Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
