North Rim – Grand Canyon National Park Campground Grand Canyon National Park Arizona

North Rim – Grand Canyon National Park Overview

Grand Canyon North Rim 073

Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim Campground is open mid May through October (reservations recommended) with 90 mixed-use campsites among a beautiful ponderosa pine forest. There are 78 campsites for tents, trailers and RVs, as well as 12 additional tent-only campsites. Three group campsites (tent only) are also available. The group sites can have up to 3 vehicles and 25 people per site (Group A, Group B or Group C). Maximum vehicle length in each group parking spot is 12 feet. Most campsites have nice shade from large ponderosa pines. Each campsite has a table, fire ring and grate. There are no hookups.

The campground borders Transept Canyon, a side canyon that drains into the main canyon, providing a stunning view for the premium campsites (23, 24, 25, 26, 29 and 31). Most of the campsites have parking pads that will accommodate trailers/RVs from 21-27. There are several in the 15 foot range and all tent sites will accommodate vehicles up to 12 feet. There are also ten sites with larger parking areas (40 foot maximum), including: 12, 13, 17, 20, 23, 24, 32, 53, 55 and 71.

North Rim Campground is within a mile of the North Rim Visitor Center/Grand Canyon Lodge. The campground has drinking water, flush toilets, hot showers, a laundry and an RV dump station. Trailers and RVs can fill up their tanks with potable water at the dump station. Firewood is also available for sale from the campground host or at the general store. A gas station is also located close to the campground.

North Rim Info

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon offers less crowds, incredible views and miles of hiking trails. You can hike the North Kaibab Trail 14.2 miles down to Phantom Ranch and Bright Angel Campground, but Backcountry permits are required for overnight hiking/camping. During the winter months, permits are also needed for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.  Day hikes on any of the 13 trails do not require a permit.

The North Rim also has a beautiful visitor center, gift shop, general store, and canyon trail rides (during the summer).  The Grand Canyon Lodge also provides overnight accommodations, a restaurant and other amenities. Keep in mind that all North Rim facilities are closed from November 1 through mid May. During the off season it is open only from dawn to dusk.

Other campgrounds in the area include Demotte Campground and Jacob Lake Campground. Demotte has 38 campsites and  Jacob Lake has 51 campsites. Both are within an hour of the North Rim and along AZ 67.

  1. Does anyone the actual length of site 48 at the North Rim campground?

  2. Gary G Willcoxon Cindy Willcoxon says:

    Hello will most of these sites handle a 35 ft 5th wheel? How is the road to the park also. Thank You

    • Hi Gary,
      Most of the campsites at North Rim Campground have parking pads that will accommodate trailers/RVs from 21-27. There are several in the 15 foot range and all tent sites will accommodate vehicles up to 12 feet. There are also ten sites with larger parking areas (40 foot maximum), including: 12, 13, 17, 20, 23, 24, 32, 53, 55 and 71.

  3. Thanks for finally writing about > North Rim – Grand Canyon National Park – Campsite Photos < Loved it!

  4. John G Thomson says:

    I have a reservation for site 10, which has a max RV/Trailer length of 27 feet. My travel trailer is 22 feet and I tow it with a 21 foot long truck. Will I fit both?

  5. Theresa Dorweiler says:

    Hello,
    Was looking at visiting the park in July 2021, we are tent campers with 2 dogs. Are there any trails with in the park that allow our pets?
    Thank you Theresa

  6. Is there any place to leave a car overnight at the North Rim if you do not have a camping reservation that night? We are planning to day hike Rim to Rim in October and shuttle back to the North Rim the following day. We have a campsite for night 1, but not night 2 b/c we will be on the South Rim.

    • Hi PJT,

      Way to go on your upcoming R2R hike in October. A grand adventure awaits you! Just mind “the box” if you get a heat wave.
      Anyway, yes there is overnight parking on the North Rim for hikers. Overnight parking is available (limited spaces) at the trailhead (see pic) and also at the North Rim Lodge. However, the Lodge parking is about 2 miles from the trailhead (if you don’t know the short cut, which trims about 1/2 mile off). Shuttles (from North Rim Lodge to North Kaibab Trailhead) are available, but I’m not sure if they will be running when you do your hike. Typically it operates May 15 to Oct 15. You may try calling the North Rim to confirm.
      Best of luck on your hike and have fun!

  7. Will campsite #56 accommodate a small RV (roughly 25ft)? I see it shares a driveway with #58 and has a max vehicle length of 15 ft, but the driveway appears much longer than that in the photos I have seen. Anyone know? Thanks!

    • Hi Dan,
      I agree – the paved parking pad for site #56 looks to be closer to 32-35 feet long. Not sure why they indicated on Rec.gov that only a 15 foot trailer or RV is allowed. Here’s the note from Rec.gov:
      This site can accommodate a tent or an RV or vehicle up to 15 feet in length. If you have an RV, your door may open towards the road, and not into your site, since all campground roads are one-way. If your equipment is longer than the stated maximum length for this site, we will not allow you to occupy this site and we will NOT be able to move you to another site. Sites are not level so RV’s should come prepared with leveling equipment. RV’s with hydraulic leveling jacks must bring pads (wooden squares) with them to prevent jacks from damaging asphalt.

  8. I have a reservation for the North Rim CG site 14 in October. The recreation.gov website states it has a max RV/Trailer length of 27 feet. My travel trailer is 27 feet and I tow it with a 22 foot long truck. Will I be able to fit both in this pull through site? The photo for site 14 looks promising, just want to confirm.

    • Hi Scott,
      Campsite #14 has a big parking pad (pull through) and your 27′ trailer and 22′ truck should fit fine there. Have a great time – it is a really nice campsite.

  9. Hi, We are staying on site 21 at North Rim. Our camper is 16 feet, one foot over the size requirement. Will we be turned away? Do they measure?

    • Hi JYat,
      Your vehicle and trailer (at 16 feet) will fit fine in that pull-thru campsite. Typically they will not measure unless they feel it is way over the length limit. That’s a nice campsite – have a great time!

  10. I did not find any photos of the group campsites. Are there trees in the group sites as well just like the normal sites? Also, is a group of 8 people allowed to reserve in the group site?

    • Hi Viki,
      The North Rim’s three group campsites (A, B and C) can have up to 3 vehicles and 25 people per site. Having 8 people is okay. We have a photo of Group Site A (below) and the other group sites look about the same.

  11. John Barrett says:

    We’ve reserved sites 47 and 51 on consecutive days in October. I noticed that max trailer length for both is 27 feet. Do you happen to know if we can fit our 25 foot trailer and 19 foot tow vehicle in those sites? Thanks.

  12. We have multiply families gathering at a North Rim group site reservation. One of the families will be traveling with a small pop up to use at other campsites along the way. Ideally, they’d like to just use the camper in the vehicle parking area of the campsite. Would that be ok? Even if they would just use a tent when at North Rim Group Campground can they still park the popup with their car at the site? If not, what other options are there for them?

    • Hi Ivw,
      The North Rim group sites can have up to 3 vehicles and 25 people per site (Group A, Group B or Group C). Maximum vehicle length in each group parking spot is 12 feet. I see no mention of not being able to park a small popup in one of the parking spots, as long as it is 12 feet or less. You could also try calling the North Rim to double check: 928 638-7888

  13. I have a reservation for Site #34 that has a pull through driveway of a maximum of 27′. My trailer is 22′ and my vehicle is 18′. Will I fit in this site?

    • Hi Al,
      You’ll be fine with your 22′ foot trailer and 18′ towing vehicle in North Rim campsite #34. There is a maximum 27′ foot length on a trailer or RV.

  14. Jeanine Bartsch says:

    Trying to plan a upcoming RV trip to N Rim. I have a 40ft RV & will be flat towing a Jeep Cherokee (17 ft). Anyone know if any of the sites would be able to accomodate this length (I have no problem disconnecting the Jeep if needed)

  15. David Wheelock says:

    Hi, sorry if you have answered this before. We just reserved site #36 in the fall. Like other sites, the description lists a max RV length of 15′. Based on the site’s photo, it appears a larger rig could be accommodated. We have a 25′ class C. Do you think we will fit? Many thanks!

    • Hi David,
      That’s a good question. Campsite #36 is one of our favorites. It’s a pull through and (as you noted) it allows for TWO vehicles – no more than 15′ each. With that said, your 25′ class C would fit on parking surface. I’m just not positive on what the camp host/ranger may say. I’d lean towards that they would okay it, but can’t be sure. Here’s the info on that site (Rec.gov):
      This site can accommodate a tent or an RV or vehicle up to 15 feet in length. If you have an RV, your door may open towards the road, and not into your site, since all campground roads are one-way. If your equipment is longer than the stated maximum length for this site, we will not allow you to occupy this site and we will NOT be able to move you to another site.

      • David Wheelock says:

        Thank you for the reply. Yeah, it’s a risky move to drive all that way, only to be denied by a grumpy ranger. Judging by the photo, it look totally fine. BTW, I’d love to see this mythical 15 foot RV they built these sites around.

  16. Michael & Heather Bova says:

    have just reserved site #69 for end of September. Have a 29′ trailer with one small slide that am hoping will fit. Truck is standard length F150. Will this work?

    • Hi Michael & Heather,
      Campsite #69 is a large pull through. Rec.gov indicates maximum vehicle length of 27 feet, but since your F150 is less than that both your truck/trailer will fit fine. With that said, occasionally a ranger/host may have an issue with your trailer being longer than what is allowed (per vehicle).

  17. I have a 29’ class A, when I reserved the spots (58,62) the website seemed to say we would fit. Now it seems to say we won’t fit.
    I can’t get through to someone at the campground. Will I fit in one of these?

    • Hi Nick,
      Not sure if I can give you a definitive answer. For site #58, Rec.gov says you can have up to two vehicles at 15′ maximum length each. That tells me that a 29′ RV will fit. It is a pull through site that share the driveway with site #56. Site #62 is also a pull through with a maximum RV length of 27 feet. It is also a pull-through site. Hopefully you can reach someone at North Rim campground to confirm before you get out there.

  18. Bova, Michael says:

    Hi ranger. Know what the website says, but hoping to get a first hand answer. Had reservations for site #69 (27’) but now have a trailer that is 29’. Hopefully the pull thru site will accommodate it, plus have the F150. Also, can we fill the fresh water at the dump station?

    • Hi Michael,
      First, you can fill up your water tanks with potable water at the North Rim Campground’s RV dump station. Campsite #69 is one of our favorites. It’s a large/level pull through site. As you know, the maximum vehicle length is listed as 27 feet, but that parking spur can handle your F150 and a 29′ foot trailer. I doubt the ranger/camp host will throw a flag on your 29′ trailer. Hope it works out!

  19. Trevan Burke says:

    I saw site 68 is one of your favorites. I noticed trailer length is 15 ft. We have a pop up – 20 ft when open that we pull with an Expedition. Tough to tell if we will fit based on pic of sight. Any assistance is appreciated

  20. Trevan Burke says:

    Hey Ranger – saw you listed zite 68 as one of your favorites. We have a pop up – 20 ft. when opened that we pull with an Expedition. Saw this site listed 15 ft trailer? Will we be OK? Stayed at site 50 before listed at 21 ft and had plenty of room. Any assistance is appreciated.

    • Hi Trevan,
      Campsite #68 has a very long (pull through) parking spur that will fit a 20 foot pop (when opened) and your Expedition. The reason they have 15 foot trailer has a maximum is that there are trees on both sides (and close to) the parking spur. A much longer trailer may not be able to make the turn when pulled through the parking spur. With that said – your setup should work fine.
