North Rim Camping

If you enjoy camping, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon offers one of the nicest campgrounds in the area, complete with magnificent views of the canyon. There are no hookups however, so be ready to rough it. The campground is open from mid-May to mid-October, but camping is allowed after the campground closes in October. Call ahead for a reservation since these sites fill quickly.
Call: 1-800-365-2267
If you are hiking down the North Kaibab Trail to the Colorado River at the bottom of the canyon, the Bright Angel Campground is an ideal place to spend the night.  The campground is a half-mile from the river, along Bright Angel Creek.  From the campground there are several day hikes and there are even ranger programs at the campground.  If you want to eat a meal at Phantom Ranch, you must make a reservations but you can just stop in and buy a snack and a drink at the snack bar.

Tuweep Camping

There is a primitive ten site, fee free campground at Tuweep. For more information on the Toroweap Campground call: 520-638-7888. The Colorado River can be seen from the rim of mystical Tuweep. From Toroweap Overlook there is less than one-mile between the South Rim and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River flows 3,000 ft. straight below the point.

Kaibab Plateau Camping

Kaibab National Forest covers two-thirds of the Kaibab Plateau and the Grand Canyon covers one-third. The Kaibab National Forest offers unpopulated drives through Ponderosa pine and aspen forests to view points of the Grand Canyon. Crazy Jug Point and Timp Point view points are two of the most popular. The Kaibab National Forest allows camping on most of the forest roads, just make sure you are outside of the Grand Canyon National Park boundaries. Camp at least .25 mile from paved roads and water sources and check at the Kaibab Visitor Center for other restrictions.

Grand Canyon Visitor Center

The North Rim has a rustic visitor center located near the Grand Canyon Lodge.  It is open from 8 am until 6 pm from mid-May until mid-October. The information board inside and outside the center has a current list of ranger walks and talks. The parks sells books, maps and other Grand Canyon related merchandise inside the center.  This is the place to go to find information about trails, to sign up for the Junior Ranger Program or to just wander around and view the interpretive displays.  On the backside of the visitor center there is a drinking fountain and public restrooms.

Naturalist NotesNature Notes

A perfect tree to place in the family room for Christmas day would be a tall, spire shaped tree with dark green needles as seen in tales of Christmas lore. The North Rim has such a tree and in abundance. It is called the Engelmann spruce and it thrives in the cool, high altitude North Rim environment. This species of tree averages 30 inches in diameter and 90 ft. in height.
