North Rim Campground Overview

The North Rim Campground is located on the remote and rustic North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park in northern Arizona, approximately 210 miles (338 km) from Grand Canyon Village, AZ on the South Rim. It is nestled in a thick ponderosa and aspen forest just on the canyon's edge at an elevation of 8,200 feet.

  • This facility is perfect for tent camping and smaller RVs.
  • Due to its heavily forested location, large and/or high-profile RVs cannot be accommodated. 
  • The maximum length in each site description is the combined length of both the RV/trailer and tow vehicle.
  • Many sites are not level and have obstacles such as tight curves and narrow passages through trees. 
  • Some sites may not accommodate trailer pop-outs or awnings.  
  • The maximum vehicle length permitted on the Cape Royal Scenic Road, Widforss Trailhead, and North Kiabab Trailhead is 22 feet; plan accordingly if renting an RV if you wish to explore these other areas of the park.
Natural Features

North Rim Campground is shaded by large ponderosa pines interspersed with aspens which turn golden in the autumn as it is situated at over 8,000 feet in elevation; however, it only takes a short walk to peer over the canyon rim to see millions of years of geologic history. The North Rim lies on the Kaibab Plateau, an area that has been uplifted by geologic processes. Many species of wildlife call the Kaibab Plateau home including the tassel-eared Kaibab squirrel which is found nowhere else in the world.
