Grand Canyon camping in Arizona

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.
$18 (50% off with a Golden Age/Golden Access seniors card) (3 tents, 2 vehicles and 6 people)
312 campsites (in 6 separate loops) with an additional 7 group campsites for up to 50 people
Grand Canyon camping reservations can be made online at www.recreation.gov or by telephone on 1-877-444-6777.
