Grand Canyon National Park

Jacob Lake Campground

Most people come to this campground because it is located on the main access route to the Grand Canyon's North Rim 44 miles to the south . However, campers at Jacob Lake don't have to drive at all to take advantage of excellent opportunities for hiking, sightseeing, and wildlife viewing.
Right at your campsite you may catch a glimpse of the black bodied,
white tailed, tuft-eared Kaibab Squirrel. It lives nowhere else
but here on the North Kaibab Ranger District.
Naturalist programs are available in season, and there is a self-guided trail near the visitor center. Horesback riding and chuckwagon meals are available from a nearby concessionaire.
