If you enjoy campgrounds that are secluded, Toroweap Point Campground is just for you. This might be one of the most secluded campgrounds in the country. Toroweap is approx. 140 miles west of North Rim and 80 miles southwest of Fredonia. Just being secluded isn't the reason you come to Toroweap Point, it is the views! Toroweap Point site atop a 3000 foot drop into the Grand Canyon. Two campsites sit right on the edge of the gorge (Update 6/5/2007, You may no longer camp at these two campsites. There is a fine for doing so. The area is day use only)! Eleven campsites about a mile back up the road from the Grand Canyon makes for a minimum amount of campers in the campground. If the campgrounds are full, you will need to obtain a backcountry permit. You can get permit information here:

http://www.nps.gov/grca/backcountry/permit_procedures.htm

The National Park Service keeps the dirt roads relatively unkept leading into the campground to keep the number of people down in the area. A high clearance vehicle would definitely be a plus if you plan on making the trip on the long rough dirt road. The last few miles can get pretty slick when it gets wet, so if it is raining, be extra careful.

When traveling to Toroweap Point, Make sure you fill up on gas and supplies, because it is a long, long way back to civilization. There is a ranger station just north of the campground that has emergency water. Whatever you do don't forget to bring your camera.

For those looking for a tough hike, look no farther than the Lava Falls Trail. The Lava Falls Trail is the shortest one way trip (and a 3000 foot drop) to the rivers edge in the entire National Park. It is not easy either. On the hike you must watch out for sliding lava rock, rattlesnakes and scorpions. Oh, did I mention there is no water along the way. Once at the bottom, you can witness the roughest whitewater rapids on the river. River guides commonly rate Lava Falls rapids at a 10+ on a scale from 1 - 10.

Directions

From Fredonia travel west on U.S. 389 for nine miles to the unpaved road marked Route 1 (or Mt. Trumbull Loop). Stay on this road until you reach Mt. Trumbull. When you reach Mt. rumbull, turn onto Toroweap Road and head to the campground.
