Sites are very small, Garbage in the fire pit. We didn't use the restrooms or showers because when we went in they were grungy plus they charge $2 to take a shower. Laundry was $5 for a load. We took showers in our motorhome instead. The wifi was terrible where the lady put us so we asked to move. It was a little better but not much. She charged us full hook up price even though we could not use the water due to the time of year. We were going to stay a few nights but decided we would find someplace else the next morning. Mostly rock and gravel not much grass anywhere. Hardly any trees it is mostly open. Would not recommend staying there. The lady told us that the place was sold to a motel so they don't really care. But yet still charge full price. The site was just big enough for our motorhome good thing we did not have a vehicle in tow. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

Sites are close together, literally less than 3' between my slide and my neighbors slide. Shared picnic tables and fire rings. The least level site I've ever been at. Worst park WiFi I've ever experienced, maybe got 20 minutes of use the 3 days I was there. Thankfully I got 2-3 bars of LTE. There seem to be several full time residents here, but the park was never full. Somewhat depressing, I wanted to check out early. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Travel Trailer.

Do NOT attempt to shop at the General Store in Tusayan. Instead go to the General Store in the GCNP, it is much larger, has a deli, and somehow the prices are better.

The park is made without any sense of love and style and in a very poor condition (amenities, sites, campground). The grill has no cooking grate and was plenty of rubbish. The worst site we have ever seen! Keep away from it. The staff is very unfriendly, the WiFi doesn't work at all sites. It might be better to travel a little bit longer but to find another place to be. What a pity that they don't have to take care of their guests - they might arrive anyway. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

Communications with staff are difficult at best. They did not answer the phone which rang busy 90% of the time I called and when I got through it was to voicemail which was returned much later. Reception appears to be understaffed and are not very friendly. The on line reservation system works fine, but again response to request is as much as 6 hours later! Clearly a manual system.

The park is adequate if you are planning on using it just for sleeping. Sites are tight and my 36 foot, four slide coach is a snug fit. The location is The Best, closest to the South entrance of the park. If I were visiting the park again I would choose this if I could not get into the park campgrounds. Park seems emptier than the reservation issues would indicate, but there are a lot of rental RVs with families that are gone from sun up to well past sundown. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to the park early and stay late.

Go to the imax show at the National Geographic visitor center.

Take a helicopter ride if you can afford it.

If you like Mexican eat at Sophie's which backs up to the campground, my wife is vegetarian and they had a full menu for her.

Excellent location within the South Rim area of the National Park. Free shuttle service stop at the Village entrance that connects with the two other routes both East and West as well as the main South Rim hotels and shops. Wifi and Verizon cell coverage inconsistent. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Travel Trailer.

When you're the closest commercial campground to the South Rim, you really don't need to deliver a quality product to be able to fill your sites at a premium price. Location is the only plus to this campground--close to the main entrance and walking distance to grocery store, shopping and restaurants in town. Sites are tight--so tight that we did not use our rug, did not place chairs outside, and forget about extending the awning--we would have been infringing on our neighbor's space had we done any of these. Barely enough room to diagonally park our 2 door Jeep behind the rig. No picnic tables (no room for one). Oh, by the way we have a single slide, 30' B+ motorhome, and we felt cramped. Our pull through site required two blocks to get level. Back-to-back hookups so you are facing the opposite direction of your neighbors. Dust control is non-existent. Every time a vehicle drove through, dust clouds drifted past. We would have loved to open our windows, forget that. Wi-Fi worked at the picnic table outside the office, slow and spotty. Bathhouses were ancient, tight, not handicap accessible, and sorely in need of updating. Plus, you'll be paying $2 for privilege of taking an 8 minute shower. They've got you. Next time, we reserve ahead at the NPS campground. I'd rather dry camp than stay here again. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

The only reason we chose this park was because of the convenient location to the Grand Canyon. The park is nothing special but organized and clean. There are pull through sites and enough room to park. You can walk to a number of restaurants and a little market,(should you need something at the last minute).

There are no amenities so the only reason to choose this place is the location and due to the premium real estate, the rate is very expensive. We paid $53 for 50amp.

There is a bicycle path that leads you directly to the visitors center if you have the desire. It's about 8 miles along the path.. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

Screaming winds were not the fault of the park, but the lack of dust control is. How difficult is it to seed a little grass? Infamous coin-op showers are everywhere. Almost as bad as Trailer Village, at the south rim. The only advantage is the proximity to Grand Canyon, but in the future, we'll make the drive from a better site. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Truck Camper.

No discounts offered. This is the only commercial park within 30+ miles of the Grand Canyon and the NPS campground was full. Site 99 was FHU and 50 amp, but on a corner across from the dump station. Site was filled with mole mounds. Satellite reception was good. Verizon cell/MiFi reception was good. The park was adequate and we would stay here again if we could not get into the Grand Canyon NPS campground. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

This RV park has fairly level gravel pads and gravel access roads making for a very dusty experience. The WiFi was fair. Our hookups were all very good. There is recycling (minus glass) on site. The staff were pretty gruff. The best thing about this park is that it is only 5 minutes to the South Rim entrance station. You are paying for Grand Canyon proximity by staying at this park, definitely not for outstanding park amenities or service. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Facilities are terrible. While here they shut 5 sites down next to me because of electrical issues but did not notify me of problem. Under powered. Sewer/water/electric set up is confusing and unsanitary. Sewer and water connections too close and side by side sites share same connection site. Staff very rude. I witnessed an active military ask about discount and staff very rude said "we don't give discounts for anything". Clearly they are taking advantage of only private camp ground within 10 minutes of Grand Canyon. The name is also similar to campground operated within the park (Trailer Village Campground). Except for close proximity of Grand Canyon definitely would not recommend as first choice. Very disappointed with facilities. Have to pay to use showers!! No sense of order to the site layout. Last the park has no security in that the access is open to anyone walking the stores and perimeter of campground. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

The only good thing I can say about this is the proximity to the Grand Canyon entrance, that was fantastic!!! Only 1 mile away, which allowed us to go in and out few times a day to check on our dog. It's over priced. You pay $51 for 30 AMP only for having full hook up. It cost money to use bathrooms and shower. WiFi was OK, was able to steam Netflix. Food and gas are very expensive so if you want to save some stock on these. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

The reason they get away with the small sites and high prices is they are the only game in town. They are the only place that has a chance to fit large rigs. The services campground in the park fills up early and they can "only" handle combo's to 50ft.

Showers cost extra ($2). Wifi is OK (they get their feed via Sat). But if you are visiting the park, it's better then driving 90+ miles a day to stay someplace else. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Grand Canyon Camper Village (GCCV) over Memorial Day 2015 weekend and let me just say it was so bad that we left a day early. The weather was terrible but that was not under the control of GCCV management. What was under there control is the layout and design of this campground (CG). The full hookup site we were in had two sewer hookups together so when pulling in you park in opposite directions which made our living sides right next to one of our neighbors. I could not even open my awning if I wanted to we were that close. This place REALLY needs to shut down in the slow season and redesign their grounds because it appears they are more concerned about fitting as many rigs (equates to profit) as possible in their CG. There is no doubt they have a monopoly with this location (right outside Grand Canyon). With a redesign of GCCV to include paved sites, correct sewer hook up design for space and some good landscaping, I know GCCV could make the top 10 list of best campgrounds in the US. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Travel Trailer.

Tuysan, AZ (small town really close to the south rim entrance and well within waking distance of GCCV) is a nice, clean town. The town has places to eat and a small store along the main street.

The best things I can say about this place is it is close to Grand Canyon National Park, and it's is quiet. It is little more than a large, mostly level gravel parking lot with the rigs squeezed as close together as possible. After dinging you $50 to stay, the showers are $2 for eight minutes - and the showers are dark and not very clean. WiFi is minimal. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.
