WHAT MAKES IT REAL?

LOCATION...

Arizona camping Grand Canyon in the snow...brrr!


This Arizona camping ground is in Grand Canyon National Park - so an amazing location. Set in amongst pine trees, the camp sites are spacious and quite spread out.

Although there are a lot of camp sites, they are split into 6 separate loops, with each loop feeling like an individual camp ground.

We were camping in the Grand Canyon in winter...in heavy snow - it looked wonderful, but was pretty chilly (7° brrr!)


Arizona camping Grand Canyon - what a view


There are lots of amenities (showers, laundry) on offer at the camping ground and also at the Canyon Village Marketplace (a 5 minute drive). You can get the park shuttle bus right from the camp ground.

If you are camping with horses, there is a horse camping ground at Mather Campground.


Note: There is National Forest free camping just outside the Grand Canyon (N35.96461° W112.10865°), off Highway 180, near Tusayan. We wanted to stay there but unfortunately it snowed very heavily the day we arrived and we thought the road looked a bit impassable for our little 2WD Astro.
