North Rim of the Grand Canyon Review


North Rim of the Grand Canyon Review. Do not go after the 15th of October. The services are all closed, including the gas station, the store and the Lodge and restaurant. I love the North Rim. You will need to make reservations early, like 6 months in advance if you are going in season. It was cold and windy while I was there and they were burning so the pictures are a bit hazy. I had half a dozen people ask me about the tentcot. I met a nice couple from Venice, CA who ride.

  1. Where did you get your tent cot?

    • Walmart online, just type in tentcot. I have seen them online at other places. This is the only one that I found that folds ends toward the center.

    • Thank you.Have a great time out there!!!

  2. What an awesome adventure! I love your tent cot, too. Sometimes going off-season works better because no one is around. I love the pictures.

  3. That must be way way more comfortable than the old fashioned tent.

  4. U got picture of tentcot after packed up to see size on bike???

  5. I camped up there this time last year too, was damn cold !! … felt great dropping down the elevation the next morning. I woke up to ice al over everything and captured a nice sunrise ?

  6. I camped at the south rim this week with no reservations. There were services bit not enough for the number of people trying to eat. Did get a hot shower and food so all was good. Crystal clear canyon views early in the am as a reward.

  7. Good info Linda so I have a question for you. You suggest making reservations early. Does that mean I shouldn’t just plan on showing up with the Taj and finding a place to camp, there?

    • Susan Ran, said she camped at the South Rim no reservations, but there were alot of people that got told sorry we are full. In fact when I got there someone had taken my reserved spot, even though it was marked reserved. The ranger gave me one of the handicapped ones they leave open.

    • Thanks…good to know.

  8. there are several different tent cots out there now, pick one you like and go to youtube and look for the name to see if someone has done a demo.

  9. I bought a Kamp-rite rent cot, but the one I have folds up square. They have one that folds up like yours, but I bought mine before I got into riding. I don’t have buyers remorse, though I’ll have to convince the wife why I need another one. ?

    • I have one of those also it fit very neatly in the bottom of my little cargo trailer I pulled behind my trike onmy cross-country trip

  10. North rim was closed when I was there last April

  11. The web site says the North is only open May 15 through Oct. 15 because the road closes when it snows, they don’t plow the area. South Rim is open year round.
