Beautiful, uncrowded forest immediately adjacent to Grand Canyon National Park. Free camping is allowed almost anywhere in the forest except within 1/4 mile of highways and surface water. Also, you can’t camp within 1 mile of Hull Cabin. If dispersed camping is not your thing, try the Ten-X Forest Service Campground 2 miles south of Tusayan on Highway 64. This is a fee area but it’s a great campground and is seldom crowded. There are many other roads to explore in the area. The forest is teeming with wildlife. I saw an entire herd of elk while on F.S. 303. You are permitted to climb the stairs of the Grandview Tower which has a distant view of the Grand Canyon. I found the side trip to historical Hull Cabin interesting. You might want to stop at the Forest Service Ranger Station just north of Tusayan to find out more about the area. Locals tell me the best time to make this trip is late in the afternoon. That way you can swing through the park on the return trip and catch the sun setting over Grand Canyon National Park. Washboard gravel road except for F.S. 303 which narrows to a single lane. This road has a few ruts and muddy spots that require high clearance and perhaps four-wheel drive when wet.
