There are campgrounds on both rims with toilets but no showers. There is drinking water available only from mid-May through mid-December, and because it must be trucked in, filling of RV water tanks is not permitted. The South Rim Campground, which rarely fills, has 88 sites (23 of which have electric hookups); some sites are open year-round. The North Rim Campground, which is open spring through fall only, has 13 basic sites and occasionally fills up. Sites at the North Rim Campground are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while some sites in the South Rim Campground can be reserved (; tel. 877/444-6777), with a $3 reservation fee. Cost is $12 per night for basic sites and $18 for sites with electric hookups. RVs over 35 feet long are not recommended in either campground.
