Looking for a Good Grand Canyon Campground

Looking to make a trip to the Grand Canyon next year and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good campground there?

You didn't mention if you're going to the North Rim or South Rim. I'll assume that you want to go to the South Rim (where all the action is). I would recommended the Grand Canyon Railroad RV Park. http://www.thetrain.com/lodging/rv-park/

The website picture is just as the park really is. Clean, convenient, and next to the wonderful town of Williams. They have shopping, restaurants, gas/fuel, market and and the Grand Canyon Railroad that you can ride up to the main visitors station in the Grand Canyon.
Wife and I were there last year and the Price at the time was about $35 each. It's a one time thing. Or you can drive your toad. At the RR station they put on a wild west type show and is interesting. BTW, this is the famous Route 66 that Williams is noted for.

There are other RV campgrounds in the vicinity and are probably less $$ per night but most are dirt/mud sites and still close enough to drive to Williams.
Also, Flagstaff AZ is not too far as well as Sedona AZ. which can both be seen in a day. (2 days max).


Hope this helps....

Greer's, just off Rt 89 was nice. We chose to go during the government shut down so missed a lot. Don't get me started. Greer's is a Good Sam's, Quiet, reasonable. From there we drove up to where the Canyon "gate" was. Told to turn around by a man with a gun, so stopped at the Indian overlook. Good time there. Then, the next day, went back down to Sedona and Jerome. Both really neat places. Flagstaff has some good bar b q as well. Have a good trip

We stayed in the tent CG for our trip to the south rim, but we checked out the NP's TT CG and liked it well enough we will stay there on our next visit. While we were camped there the CG had a visitor.

Yes, that's an elk. The Trailer Village is the one we checked out. It's nice and we will stay there on our next visit. There are many others in the area, and I'm sure some are much nicer. We liked the trailer village for it's convenience.

Have only heard good things about Trailer Village. We have actually made a reservation to stay there next Summer for a week. If you are a senior, you should be able to get into the National Park for free with a senior card that you pay for once and it is good at all National Parks for LIFE!
Someone mentioned Greer. It is MILES from the Grand Canyon and I would not even think about staying there as an entry point for the National Park. We used to live in the White Mountains of Eastern Arizona and we know just how far Greer is from the Grand Canyon.
Also, we checked out the RV park in Williams and it is a "parking lot" style. Yes, it is handy to the Grand Canyon (but still 30 miles away or so), but certainly not the general beauty of the Canyon area itself. That is why we are staying in the park itself as mentioned above.

We also stayed at Trailer Village, they are pull thru sites with full hookups. They only have restrooms at this campground, no showers, you would need to go to Mather to shower if you want. We had an end spot which was a bit more room than the standard ones. You can ask for one when you check in. What is really nice, the Grand Canyon has a free shuttle bus which takes you to all the campgrounds, hotels, markets, and vistas for viewing. So once you are parked you don't have to drive or find a parking spot at the attractions if you do not want to. The shuttle picks you right in front of the campground. It was more relaxing for DH. We spent 5 days there and loved it. Hope this helps.

Hi I prefer the North Rim, a little longer to.get there ,but if you want to get away
From the crowded materialistic atmosphere. Go to the N Rim the campsites are great , there is a good store and a great Hotel with a veranda out front hanging over the canyon, also a bar. I live in Cottonwood az 120 mi s
