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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

had one of the few "full hookups" but had to pay extra to use the dump at the site. We were thrilled with the place, could be a beautiful place with a little care. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

We stayed here while visiting the Grand Canyon. The sites are very tight and dirt. Kids were playing in the site when we pulled in and had to ask them to move. They were from a site on other side of campground. There was no water at the site as they said they had water leaks to fix but no discount for this. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

What makes this a great place to stay is the location, very close to the rim of the Grand Canyon. An easy walk to spectacular views. Don't expect a lot from the campground itself. Basically, just a place to park cheek-to-jowl with other campers. I would give this camp ground a 4 or 5 if it wasn't situated in such a spectacular location.

Second time to stay here. They have redone the pads now with asphalt, very nice. Some of them are not level, no problem with ours. If your going to the Canyon this is place to stay, can catch the shuttle buses to anywhere in the park. We used our bikes and ran all over the place. Deer, elk running thru the park, nice. I wonder why they do not have showers, just a restroom. Would give this park a 10 if they did. Also why no Wi-Fi,,pay 33 a vehicle plus 5.00 for each extra person...?? hmm.. Otherwise great place to stay, remember RESERVATIONS A MUST!!!!!! Park was full two of four days we stayed. Just use the Xanterra site, easy to use. Will stay again.

This place needs a lot of TLC. All gravel, very little grass and some shade. But most sites were level. Restrooms and showers were not clean and in bad shape. Price is way to high for what they offer. If you can, try to avoid this place. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 2 nights. Sites were not concrete. The 40 AMP kept going on and off. Terrible internet, but I think this is due to the area, not necessarily park.If you want to go to the Grand Canyon it is fine for a few nights. It was very convenient in location to Grand Canyon.

We have been to Grand Canyon and stayed outside the park. I highly recommend staying inside and taking advantage of the wonderful bus system and walking. It gives a whole different feel. This park is wonderfully situated and the sites are roomy. We would definitely return. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

We were very pleased with this campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our site was a pull-through with 50 amp full hook-ups and had plenty of room for our 43-footer. It is only 1 mile from the south entrance gate to the Grand Canyon and 5 miles from the Grand Canyon Visitor Center. The shuttle bus to the visitor center is less than 1/4 mile from the campground. The town is small but does have a general store with basic needs while camping. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

Not bad. Close to GC South Rim park entrance. Close to town. Bathroom could be updated. The sites are a little worn. Dusty dirt from gopher holes. No CATV, no air channels. WiFi limited to 1 MBS. Would stay here again. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

The last review is very accurate. It's a lot of money for what you get. Apparently, the park changed hands in the last year or so and the previous owner hadn't done much in years. The sites are rough gravel, but they had a tractor out yesterday leveling some of them. They're a bit close as well. Many water spigots leak. Temps dropped to 19 at night once in a while so I made sure to fill the tank and roll up the hose. We didn't use the showers/restrooms, but although old, they were well maintained. Not much room for dog walking except for empty sites. The staff do a great job meeting your needs. Get here early...it fills up fast. Unbelievable the number of rental units on the road. They've got you because it's the only private park in the area and it's only one mile away from one of the most fantastic natural sights in the world with 3-5 million visitors a year. Try the GC Jeep morning tour for the best all around tour of the South Rim. We're not hikers or bikers, yet Scott made it seem like we saw it all. Only one gas station in town and the diesel pump is old and works slow, poorly, and it was expensive at $4.29 a gallon. We'll stay here again, but not for a while. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

We read the reviews on this place and passed for camping (glad we did), but we paid $6 to use their dump station. There's nowhere to clear your tanks between Mather in the park (200 sites, one station), and the KOA in Williams. Should've hauled it out. Dump pipe sticks up about ten inches in the air so everyone was doing the slinky squeeze. There's no catch basin, and there was lots of "water" around it. Water spigot close, but no hose. Disgusting. AZ Health should cite them, and owners should be ashamed. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Travel Trailer.

Checking the reviews before staying at this campground, I noted that previous reviewers had complained about the pay showers, dirty restrooms, and high prices. However, this was the closest private campground with hookups/restrooms/showers to Grand Canyon National Park. This quiet campground is located behind the General Store in Tusayan, about a half a block east of the main street, and about four miles south of the south entrance to Grand Canyon National Park. The spaces are gravelly, relatively level, some with some small patches of grasses, picnic tables, some sites with small shade trees, a few sites with pines. We stayed two nights in mid-March, before the tourist season. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and knowledgeable about what services were available in town. The sites appear to be mostly pull-through. The WiFi worked very well. The restrooms are older block buildings. I saw at least four; the one we used was clean and trouble-free. The mens restroom had two each sinks, toilets, and shower stalls. Each shower stall consisted of the shower stall itself plus a small ate-chamber for dressing. A shower cost $2 (put in eight quarters) for eight minutes; it is not unusual to encounter pay showers in areas where water is limited or expensive. The hot water was plenty hot, and eight minutes is quite a long shower (I’ve seen paid the same price for four minute showers). The shower water pressure was quite low, and I first wondered if I was going to get wet all over, but found the eight minutes more than ample to deal with this issue. The area is at high elevation (above 7000 ft), and arid, with limited water supplies (the campground depends on a well). The restrooms were cleaned daily. The price for a 30 amp site with full hookups was $34 per night, pre-season. Although the full hookup part was moot, since the water was turned off to avoid freezing the pipes at night. We found Grand Canyon Camper Village a pleasant surprise, but I am sure that if we arrived at this or any other campground during heavy use periods, we could find things to complain about. The pizza place attached to the General Store and the RP Stage stop (coffee house) both had good food at reasonable prices. A note to fellow travelers: campgrounds in National Park gateway communities have something of a captive clientele, and so are often more expensive than the norm, and have fewer amenities. They also get very heavy, and often thoughtless use during tourist season, leading to plumbing and trash problems. During our stay, more than one person pulled in quite late then left early and didn’t pay for their stay. It only takes one thoughtless or malicious idiot to jam up a toilet so nobody can use it. Water, electricity, WiFi time, and general maintenance all cost money. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Tent Trailer.
