Kaibab National Forest – Grand Canyon Arizona
1.6 million acres of beautiful wilderness along Grand Canyon’s North and South Rims.
Our campsite was a few miles south of the South Rim of Grand Canyon. We stayed on FR 302F which is Kaibab National Forest land and the nearest city is Tusayan, AZ to the west.
Boondocking Basic Site: level, wooded, easy to access from town and cost free.
Reasons to visit Kaibab National Forest in Arizona: Visit Grand Canyon National Park, vacation in the forest, birdwatching or wildlife watching
We got the last site on this road just outside of the town Tusayan and it was a beauty. Flat and level with a huge driving circle for nearly any size rig. This campsite road 302F also led to a second campsite so essentially we shared a driveway with the other site, but no one was camped there. Wooded but not heavily, dense shrubbery and some old Ponderosa Pine trees were our neighbors. There was very little wildlife, mostly birds and the not so distant sounds of wolves hunting each day and night. The dispersed campsites are under the flight path for sightseeing helicopter and Cessna tours, but that didn’t bother us one bit. We were there during less busy times in September so there wasn’t too much traffic, on the road or in the sky.
