Discover an exceptional basecamp in a discreet clearing surrounded by majestic ponderosa pines within Kaibab National Forest. Conveniently situated just off the paved highway, this hidden gem ensures excellent privacy. Although the upper elevation may bring cold and snowy conditions in winter, the campsite provides unparalleled comfort during the summer months.

Benefit from reliable cell service in this pristine location, nestled beneath the tree cover that offers superb shade and shelter. However, the dense tree canopy limits the view of the sky, impacting satellite connectivity. The clean site accommodates two or three vehicles with a primitive stone fire ring, but due to the dry conditions, campfires are discouraged.

Positioned as a strategic access point to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, this site also offers proximity to attractions in Southern Utah. Take advantage of hiking opportunities nearby for an immersive outdoor experience. While a vault toilet is not on-site, a short walk across the highway provides convenient access. Explore the beauty of Kaibab National Forest in this well-appointed and accessible campsite, making it an ideal choice for your outdoor adventures.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
