Grand Canyon National Park Cottonwood Campground

Cottonwood Campground is a small campground 7 miles below the North Rim of the Grand Canyon on the North Kaibab Trail . It is a great place to rest. Bright Angel Creek near by offers a cool refreshing place to get wet. Seasonally (mid-May to mid-Oct) potable drinking water is available at the campground. During other times of the year hikers should be prepared to filter/treat water obtained from the creek. There are deer, ringtail cats, and squirrels found in the area. No food storage is provided in the backcountry. Please protect your food. Cottonwood campground is 2 miles from Roaring Springs, 1.1 miles from Ribbon Falls and is near the entrance to Manzanita Canyon, all which offers day hiking opportunities.
