Grand Canyon National Park Bright Angel Campground

Campsite Bright Angel Campground is at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. The campground is 1/2 mile north of the Colorado River, and sits along Bright Angel Creek. The campground is less than 1/2 mile from Phantom Ranch. The area is characterized by the river delta where Bright Angel Creek meets the Colorado River. To reach this campground you can travel the South Kaibab Trail (and cross the black bridge) or the Bright Angel Trail (and cross the silver bridge) from the South Rim, or travel the North Kaibab Trail from the North Rim. Cottonwood trees shade Bright Angel Campground and the creek offers a great place to cool off. Deer, ringtail cats, gray foxes, and squirrels are often seen. Metal food containers are provided to store food. Popular activities include relaxing, resting/wading in Bright Angel Creek, stargazing, fishing, and day hiking. Day hikes include the River Trail, Phantom Overlook, and Ribbon Falls. Check the campground information board for ranger led activities, and evening program topics.
