Great value for the price. Plan to visit again next year with my travel trailer. Large private sites. Easy back-ins with a few pull-through sites also. Big rig friendly. Gas station, restaurant and small historical motel just across the road. There is a hiking trail just back of the campground hidden behind a vault toilet. Host were helpful and visible. Vault toilets were very clean. There is a private RV park with full hookups nearby where RVs are packed in like sardines. But if you must have hookups it is the only show in town. I will gladly forgo hook ups for space and privacy so I loved this little NFS campground. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the little cafe/bakery/ motel/gift shop across the road. The french toast with homemade bread is to die for. The gift shop has lots of quality items and the cafe is decorated with wonderful wall hangings.

There are public showers at a store halfway to the Grand Canyon.

It can be cold in June so bring some warm clothes.

Very nice camp host and campground well maintained. Our rate was based on our senior pass rate. Camped here 2 nights while we explored the North Rim. We had a pull through site but it was barely big enough for our 37' motor home and tow. No hookups and did not use the bathrooms. Beautiful scenery in the tall pines. Would stay here again on our way through. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

Great place to park a big motorhome and drive a tow vehicle to the North Rim, as long as you realize there are no hookups or dump station. Sites are big. Many are OK for satellite. Verizon data service is good. We loved it. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

This is a convenient campground en-route to the North Rim Grand Canyon. There is drinking water available, but no fill up for rvs, so bring your own. The Verizon cell phone worked great here. It is a pretty forested area. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

Very basic place to stay but its usually in a good position as we head north from Phoenix & we like to avoid Page. Plus, its right across the street form the Jacob Lake store where you can view some wonderful Native American weaving & other goods as well as get the best milkshake you've had in a long time. Vault toilets were clean, dirt/gravel roads & fairly level sites. Surrounded by pine forest. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

Large, 2 loop NFS campground, just off the main highway, with sites for all types and sizes of camping rigs, from tents to motor mansions. IMO, better than private park just down the road as sites are bigger, wider and more space between. Just that there are no hook ups. The rate reflects Access Pass rate. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon in August, there was no one here but the friendly camp host. Good verizon air card, no AT&T cell at all, DirectTV was good through the trees. Wish there was a dump site though, but water spigots are at each bathroom, and bathrooms (pit toilets) were clean and lighted at night. There is some road noise from the main highway located next to the campground and some light spills into the South loop from the gas station complex located across highway from campground, so you're not totally in the dark at night here. We definitely would stay here again if we were coming this way. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects use of access pass. I second everything the previous poster said, it's a great place to camp if you can live without hook-ups. This is an especially good choice if you have a toad, rather than drive the extra 44 miles each way in the RV to stay in a campgrounds that are more expensive and hard to maneuver in at the North Rim park, stay here and drive the car in. The road's a lot more fun and way cheaper driving a car instead of your whole rig. And the North Rim campground only allows generators 4 hours a day; this park let's you run it all day except from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

Park has widely spaced sites, and is convenient to explore North Rim of Grand Canyon. Limited water is available (all trucked in). There is a nice restaurant/bakery across the road. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Travel Trailer.

This is an awesome campground if you don't mind dry camping! Numerous big roomy sites - most with good shade. The sites are graveled and very clean. There are sites of various size and shape to suite everything from a tent to a camper van to a fifth wheel to a large motor home. You can run your generator except for quite hours (10:00 pm to 7:00 am). I checked out one of the restrooms (chemical toilets) and it was very clean. There is a water spigot outside each toilet building but is it not threaded and so you cannot attach a hose. I was able to use my Verizon cell phone and broadband modem. There is a gas station and cafe a few yards down and across the street. The Grand Canyon North Rim entrance is a beautiful 40 mile drive. I would give this campground a "10" except to dump and/or top up your fresh water, you need to visit the private campground about 4 miles away. Not sure what they charge because we did not have to do either. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

This is a nice USFS campground; dry camping only. The only amenity is a picnic table and fire ring. There is no dump station, but then most USFS campgrounds lack them. It’s laid out well with large, wide, gravel sites. They are all level. The campground appears to have been designed around the tall pine trees which did sacrifice a bit of shade but added to the aesthetic quality. There are 50 plus campsites, but the recreation.gov website doesn’t list any of them and you can’t make reservations. Rating based on like dry camping parks. Rate reflects Interagency Pass discount.

This a nice NFS park in a nice high altitude (cool) location. Sites are not very level and there are not as many trees as there should be, but other than that it is a good place to camp out. The camp host are friendly and helpful. Not a bad place to boon dock on your way to see the canyon. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

This National Forest Service campground is at 7,920 feet elevation on the Kaibab plateau 33 miles from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It offers two loops of dry camping only, no hookups, directly accessible from Route 89A. It is about one mile from Jacob lake itself. At the adjacent road junction are a gas station, shop with limited groceries and a restaurant at the Jacob Lake Inn. The rate quoted is the senior passport rate;otherwise the base fee is $17/night. The campground was remodeled two years ago and is in excellent condition with tables, fore rings and gravel pads. It is a bit dusty however. The vault toilets were as clean as any we ever saw which admittedly is not a high bar to jump. Hosts were quite visible and friendly and the practice is to simply find a site and settle in ans wait for the host to come by, sign you up and collect the fee. Not too much road noise. Some weekend informational programs and gorgeous pine forests make this a great spot for an over-nighter or longer visit. However, there is no dump station and the nearby commercial RV park no longer permits dumps by Forest service campers. We camped at Jacob Lake Campground - USFS in a Travel Trailer.
