Our site had plenty of space on one side and backed up to a Ponderosa Pine forest

Kaibob Camper Village was lovely and wooded, and the closest place to stay from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon that has hookups. North Rim is notably less frenetic and filled with tourists than the South Rim, though you also might find the views less dramatic. We called a week before Memorial Day and were surprised to have been able to reserve a spot through the weekend.  The first night, we were supposed to have a water-only site, then move to a full hook-up site when one opened up the next day, but one had opened up before we got there, and they had already re-arranged our reservation for that site (nice to not have to move!). The hosts were very friendly and hospitable, and had plenty of recommendations and stories about the area.

Many of the sites are pretty close together, but the wooded setting somehow makes you feel like you have a bit more privacy.  We were lucky enough to have more space than most on our porch side.  If you’re staying here, I recommend you stay in a back-in site on the outer-rim furthest away from the road, because all of those sites back up into the forest, which affords you some extra privacy and a nice view.

Great dog-walking areas on the forest lands just outside the campground.  Jacob Lake (which is actually barely a pond) is a five-minute walk from the campground.  There is also a mile-long trail to Jacob Lake Inn (a five minute drive), which is the only place for miles to get some basic supplies besides the campground store.

Verizon 3G here was stable, though not speedy.  Sprint 3G was just baaaarely there (with a booster).

RV sites don’t have fire pits and fires are only allowed in the common area in the middle of the grounds.  Actually, while we were there, fires (and even charcoal grills) were banned due to draught and fire danger.  This was a National Parks ban (not a campground ban).

From the forest outside the campground: this gives a better idea of the general spacing between sites
