Brings back memories of our 2006 trip. Gee that looks like the same campsite but didn't take any pictures of it. We loved it.

Thank you all for the kind words. I had such a great time there that I just had to share some of it. Raya, I have had the window cover on the back of my Scamp for about 15 years already (my 17th anniversary with it is the end of the month). Some of the stickers have been on there for that amount of time too, the others get changed as needed. The window covers sure help keep the sunlight out and saves the curtains, and lots more privacy at night, and makes a great window awning when propped open. Chris

For an excellent report and photos. It looks like it was the same campground http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/cg-sr.htm my daughter & her husband tent camped at a year ago (March). The Big Horned Sheep you saw were really neat. Makes me want to go back again and camp there. Thanks.

We stayed in Trailer Village on Labor Day weekend two years ago and really had a great time. Our 9yo thinks the big Park Buffet at Trailer Village is one of the best restaurants he's ever eaten in. Go figure!

The Canyon has a spell it casts on you and it will draw you back many times once you go. Back in the early 80's and 90's I led many groups down in the interior and we covered just about all the trails and approved camping areas in the "big ditch." After seeing Chris post on his Canyon adventure I'm gettin the itch again.

Nice trip report Chris.

Our kids (much older) liked the buffet too! For the free wifi... I was surprised as hell when I saw swordfish on the menu!


If there's enough interest, Mather would be one heck of a place to have a National Egg Meet some year!

Here are some pics of my treat on the rim trails.........big horn sheep. I have never seen one in person, let alone 5 of them. They were pretty preoccupied with eating at the time.
That middle pic of the sheep is beautiful! There's no denying where those guys are! Thanks so much for sharing your trip -

Hi there

We also just returned from the Canyon last week. I was needing to reunite with my Trillium after purchase 2 years earlier in San Diego. After pulling from storage, my buddy from Williams pulled it over to his place and we drove from Houston to pick er up! (Also dropping off a little car I am restoring.)


This met all my needs as I was able to show my 86 year old mom the Canyon - one of the reasons I went fiberglass in the first place.

Even though we did not camp there I would like to recommend Williams and it's campgrounds as a good spot if you are crowded out of Paark grounds - or for a rally. You are just under an hour from the Canyon and at the gateway - Grand Canyon train ride available. We fell for Williams (the side of town near train station on route 66). Williams is walkable with great food, some shops, groceries and just enough to not be overdone.

This is not really roughing it in the wild but at some point the Canyon campgrounds will be overpopulated again.

There is a KOA and another in town at Williams, Kaibab National Forest and Cocnino National Forest too.

And a drive down to Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona is a definite must see - another very easy day trip.

My 2 cents.

Will post pics of trailer, etc. soon.
