You are not too far from the rim. They have a shuttle bus to get to far the view points. It is a short walk to the stop. If you want showers they are at Mather campground (coin operated). For Wi-Fi you have to go to the cafe by the market. The sites are paved and fairly level. Picnic table and BBQ. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Dec 1 to Feb 28 you can drive to Hermits Rest. The rest of the year you need to take the shuttle.

We really enjoyed this campground. It is nice and convenient to be inside the NP, and be able to ride the bus shuttle to different areas of the park. There is a nice market within walking distance of the campground. We were greeted by elk the day we pulled in and got set up. The sites are long and level, Verizon signal is decent, we were able to use our satellite, but there was also cable available. We will definitely return to this campground.....highly recommend!

Stayed here four nights while visiting the Grand Canyon. All sites are pull-through and fairly level. Fair amount of space between sites with a grill and picnic table. Our site did not have a cable TV hook up; with an antenna, we were able to get one station. Phone service was spotty throughout the entire Grand Canyon park. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this park. It is nothing fancy but it is so convenient to everything the Grand Canyon NP has to offer. Just a short walk to the shuttle service and paved walking paths. Mule deer and a single bull elk wandered through the park eating acorns. Lots of services within the park to take advantage of. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice RV park, with long, fairly level, pull-through sites. Very convenient to the shuttle bus and the Market Plaza - the ideal RV location in the National Park. Full hookups. No WiFi, no TV. No AT&T cellphone coverage. While Verizon coverage is strong in the historic Village, it is feeble in the RV park. My little MiFi hotspot displayed 1X or 3G, but it was running at dialup speeds. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Really nice campground. Nice level pull thru. Only warning I would have is for people with pets and small children. There are "wild" animals that roam through the campground. We had 3 bull elk with huge racks just mosey thru, eating grass and leaves right next to our campers. It's nice for close up photos, but remember, they are wild not tame animals.

Very Nice RV park. Highly recommend. Hard to believe this is a national park, rather than an RV resort. Check in was smooth and effortless. All sites were pull thru, many were shaded, but not so dense you couldn't set up a satellite. Hiking distance to grocery, PO, bank. Shuttle comes to RV park gate puts you on rim. Would definitely do it again. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Bathrooms were old but decent, water and hookups worked and sites are thoughtfully laid out. Long walk (or drive) to the Mather campground area for laundry and $2 pay showers that were clean with nice hot water. Free park bus shuttles are a great way to get around and see the sights without needing to drive your vehicle. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Recent reviews are still spot on. For a site in a national park, this was great! I had room to stay hooked up to my TV and I'm 53' nose to tail. Anything longer wouldn't fit. ATT signal was sporadic and 1 bar. Verizon had a weak 3G signal too. The east half of Trailer Village was junky long-term campers but I didn't see any transients assigned spots over there. This park (west side) was full almost every night so reservations are a must! We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with decent sized pull throughs. Shade trees on some sites. Location was main reason we stayed in the park. It did not disappoint being right in the Grand Canyon National Park just a few minutes away from the edge of the canyon. Canyon shuttle comes right to the entrance of the campground. Did not use facilities, were out exploring during the day. Will stay here again on our next visit. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Elk in the camp ground so definitely in a "park" park. Xanterra operates the campground. Staff was friendly, but make sure they understand how long you are for their pull throughs. MIFI hotspot with Verizon should work. Can have up to a 1/4 mile walk to shuttle stop, but use the shuttle to get to most of the South Rim sites. We used our toad to go to the eastern part of the South Rim. Town just outside the park isn't much. Restaurants in the park are pricey and mediocre (Xanterra operated). Did not allow fire pits, even though the NPS run Mather campground did ??? That's their rules. We would return. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice to find full hookups at a National Park. Roads and sites are paved, space between sites is gravel. A few trees break up the monotony of the parking lot-feel. Fires are not allowed in this campground so no annoying smoke in the evenings. We had a very slow 3G Verizon signal, even with our booster. Easy, short walk of about half a mile to the main visitor center and the Canyon Rim. Shuttle bus stop right at the campground. A decent place to park the rig if you want to be near all the South Rim has to offer. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent place to stay. Right in middle of all activities in Grand Canyon NP. Sites are mostly level asphalt with good hookups. Does not have WiFi, though. Elk wander throughout campground. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Wonderful camp host. 1/2 mile from canyon rim: an easy walk. Location and host made this the best Grand Canyon experience. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is probably as good as you can expect for a full hookup RV park within a national park. Friendly check in. No showers available within this park, only at the adjacent campground. Very convenient to the entire South Rim area with the shuttle buses. Elk and deer roam through in the evening. All the stores, restaurants and services you could want in the nearby Grand Canyon Village. All in all, just a real nice place. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Given that this is the most convenient spot near the south rim to have a full hookup, it's just fine. Clean areas, nice check in process. Great spot to stay while visiting the GC. We'd stay again. Verizon WiFi worked with a booster, but still a bit spotty (for those who get to work while traveling). Wildlife spotted in the campsite: Ravens (who got into the trash bag and mocked the dog), elk. We camped at Trailer Village (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
