Description

An hour from the Grand Canyon and 10 minutes from Williams. Free, no facilities. A forest road where camping is allowed. There are lots of sites with fire rings. In early November it was below 30 at night. They either had a fire here recently or it looks like they intentionally burned the grass to help prevent forest fire. Was a bit smoky. Bring your own fire wood. Pack it in, Pack it out. Quiet with exception of occasional train noise. Lots of room for dogs to run. No one was here when we were. Easy access dirt road but could be muddy. I would drive anything out here. You can camp more in the trees or more in a field. Field had 4G service.

Nice place with great location (45min from Grand Canyon south entrance).

A bit muddy at this time of the year as the ice and snow is melting. Few RVs at place, but with good distance from each other.

The noise of the big trucks in the morning passing by did woke us, but at a reasonable time (9:00 am)

Beautiful place, got here when totally dark, found a spot with no problems.

So many campsites down a flat, well packed dirt road. Most have camp fire rings. There’s is some rod noise from the freeway but otherwise a great spot! Excellent proximity to Williams. We would definitely camp here again.

Forest and grassy fields, lots of space and fairly clean. The dirt and gravel road is good until it forks, then it gets a little rough.

Easy to get to, lots of camping spots that are spaced out, and there are even fire pits! Stopped for just one night to get some sleep before we head back home down to Phoenix. Got in at about 12 AM and nobody was here except us. There’s a spot similar to this in Flag as well. Definitely recommend

Easy pull in, even after dark. Lots and lots of sites, Road could use some grading but whatever, easily passable in class C. Wouldn’t want to do it in the rain, but I come
From the land of clay so maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. 2-3 bars Verizon service. Plenty of other campers here, even in November Covid, but super easy campsite on the way to the Grand. Suits me.

Roomy camping area. Some spots have cell service, some not. Many have trees for shade or hammock hanging. There’s a porta potty at the end of Garland Prairie road and to the left a few spots. 14 day max. Up the road is Grand Canyon KOA which has showers and water. There is propane in Williams.

Easy in and out. Don’t stop at the first turn, there’s a lot of good parking back for their. Stay on roads, though, the volcanic rocks are sharp.

This camping spot was amazing. We stayed here in our promaster because it was an hour away from the grand canyon. The morning after we woke up to a beautiful sunrise surrounded by the forest and noticed how many types of campers were around us. We decided to make ourselves a cup of coffee and continue with our day. I really recommend this location because its totally free up to 14days and safe.

Report Check-In

Large area with many flat spots scattered throughout the forest. Quite a few other campers there but the campground is large enough that everyone is spaced out. A combination of RV campers and tent campers there. Quiet and absolutely beautiful view of the stars at night. No bathroom or showers. No grills or fire pits that we saw. Very dusty as there are no paved areas.

Report Check-In

Good place to spend the night. You could drive in here with anything. Free ranging cows for company. Lots of spots to pull off. Lots of campers but still private and well spaced apart.

Good spot for a night. Be careful we saw lots of people stuck in here after the rain. Dirt road is great but some of the sites are soft.

Report Check-In

Very muddy entrance road so I'd recommend only smaller rigs with 4WD during this rainy period.

Report Check-In

Beautiful meadow in the middle of a forest with tons of private turnouts. Each turnout has a fire pit. There is no office building and this area is not regulated so it is very much a "help yourself and come as you are" kind of place. Be careful if you come during rain or snow season because the ground is just mud and if you have a heavy vehicle, you'll easily get stuck. Absolutely beautiful area that's completely isolated from lights and sounds. Can't recommend this place enough!!

Hermoso lugar, rodeado de pinos y con Pircas para hacer fuego. Nos olvidamos de comprar leña pero el lugar está repleto de leña seca. Por la noche bajo mucho la temperatura (-1 C), tenerlo en cuenta para llevar abrigos

Very nice spot right outside Grand Canyon mostly flat with lots of space very quiet you can stay up to 14 days probably about 14 other campers here today I have 2 bars on T Mobile

Nice area, quiet and mostly level. I was shocked to see how many people were camping in the area. Large area so not crowded but there must have been 30 to 40 people camping in everything from tents to large 5th wheels.

Quiet and nice place to stay for a night, close to Williams. The day before was raining, and it was quite muddy, so it was a problem to park in any pull off without 4WD.

Good place one hour from Grand Canyon. We spent the night of the 7 th of March. Very few camper van. It was rather cold ( around - 5 degrees C) and muddy in the morning. If no 4x4 be careful. Very quiet.

This spot is a large, grassy sparsely treed pine forest with several informal campsites. Stone fire rings dot the landscape, and there is plenty of wood if you're willing to look for it. Don't pick the first spot off the highway. We drove a ways back from the road and could still hear the traffic at night. There were only a few other campers mid week in October, but there were so many spots that we didn't meet any of them. With all the fire rings made here you can assume it's bumpin' in the summer months. Good for a night or two, 50miles to the Grand Canyon Visitor's center and village. No amenities. No generators, please.

Great spot to throw up a tent for a night. No campfires allowed.

Great area for dispersed camping. There were only a few other campers here and the area allows you to camp without seeing other campers. Very nice and secluded.

Good so far, plenty of spots to camp. Also getting about 11 TV channels if pointed in the right direction, cell service is very good with Verizon.
