North Rim Campground, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

5 of 13

The Site: The Grand Canyon’s all about views, of course, and this campground serves them up on a tectonic plate. The best spots? Numbers 11, 14, 15, 16, and 18, which are also large enough to afford plenty of privacy. And you’ll be right on the trail to Bright Angel Point, which offers even more breathtaking views down Bright Angel Canyon. Go for sunrise.

The Basics: 80 sites; picnic tables, fire rings, flush toilets, running water, shower and laundry facilities; tents and RVs (no hookups); $18/$25 for the rim-side sites; reserve up to six months in advance (recommended) at recreation.gov or (877) 444-6777.
