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. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We were shut out of the National Parks, so stayed here instead. Nothing special, and simply average or slightly less. Attendant tried to direct us to sites suitable for a 30' RV - don't think he realized that with a tow vehicle a 29' fifth-wheel ends up closer to 47' overall length. We found a level, longer site. Use their WI-FI signal to make alternate travel plans - worked okay, but bounced me out a few times. Note that we don’t carry a TV around so no cable service is necessary. We use the fifth-wheel primarily to have a comfortable place to sleep, a toilet and shower that don’t offer surprises, and someplace to store food. Other than that, we live outside! We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty Spartan RV campground. Site was too short for our 38 foot RV. The Wi-Fi did not work properly. The campground would be better if it had cable TV but we used the sat TV. It is very close to the Grand Canyon and the staff is very helpful and loaded with a lot of advice on how best to see the Canyon. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

We camped here during the government shutdown after being kicked out of the campgrounds at Grand Canyon Village inside the NP. There is very little shade over most spots and not very much formal landscaping. Many of the lots are overgrown with weeds and some kind of thistles that stuck to our dogs coats. It was fairly noisy during the day because it is right under the helicopter and airplane main flyways for the airport about a half mile away. (That was only a problem during the day.) The for-pay showers that other campers reported are now gone - they have been replaced by simple shower curtains. Haven't used them yet so don't know about the water temp stability. There is no TV and no radio stations unless you bring a satellite dish, but I am typing this over the campground WiFi so no complaints about that. My own FreedomPop hotspot can't get enough of a signal to do DNS resolution so the campground WiFi comes to the rescue of connecting me to the outside world. $51.00 per night for 30 amp full hookups is way too high. That is what I would expect to pay for a fully landscaped park with paved roads and all the amenities. They really need to price more reasonably.! We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

Was old and a bit run down. Staff was just ok. Hated the bathrooms and how run down they were. Did not like the showers being coin operated, $2 for 8 mins. Took 1 min just to warm up then the temp fluctuated to scolding hot to chilly depending on toilets flushing etc. Showers should have been free for that expense of over $50 per night and did not even choose full hook-ups. Had a lot of tent camper groups of kids which were loud. Thought I would like being in the grand canyon village but ended up driving the RV everywhere instead of using the shuttle. I wont go back there. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Motorhome.

The good - it is at the entrance to Grand Canyon N.P. and the sites are level. The not so good - very pricey for what you get - $46 for W/E with so/so WiFi, no cable, pay showers and a pay dump station. Add $10/night if you want full hookips. Even with the negatives would stay here again because of the convenient park access. Staying in trailer village in the park is a better option but requires reservations months in advance for a multi day stay. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here one night as everything else was full in the area. Arrived late, did the night registration, found one empty site and I presume it was empty because when we tried to hook up to the 20 amp circuit for our site it was dead. We plugged in to our neighbors site to get power. The place was packed with rental RV's. The campground was what you would expect next to a National Park like the Grand Canyon. No one comes to the campground they come for the Grand Canyon so it was a place to park for the night, pick up some water and move on. We stayed the next night at the Ten X down the road where we had a reservation. The campground supposedly has wireless but because we checked in late we did not have access to a code in order to use. They offer a multitude of site options. 50 Amp, 30 amp with full hook up, 20 amp water and electric only and 20 amp electric only. They do have a dump station on site. We stayed in a 20 amp water and electric site that was level and we were able to get our 34 trailer and 21 foot truck on the site without having to unhook. We camped at Grand Canyon Camper Village in a Travel Trailer.
