Grand Canyon National Park Cedar Spring

Cedar Spring Campground is a place for hearty souls to get a little solitude. There is only one small group campsite for one to six people in this area. Cedar Spring Campground is located on the Tonto Trail 9.8 miles from the Hermit Trailhead , and 9.4 miles from Indian Garden Campground . It is in the 'threshold zone' recommended for experienced Grand Canyon hikers only. Some hikers use Cedar Spring campground as a middle night during a hermit loop traverse from the Hermit Trailhead to Indian Garden Campground along the Tonto Plateau.

Be aware:

Cedar Spring is not perennial! The South Rim Backcountry Information Center asks hikers traveling the Tonto Trail for water reports to make available to other hikers. Check with us when you arrive for water updates. Dry camping (carrying in water) may be the only option for people staying overnight at Cedar Spring. Cedar Spring is 1.3 miles from perennial Monument Creek.
