Jacobs Lake

Headed to the grand Canyon from the north. Any suggestions on camping in Jacob Lake? We have a 37' rv with tow and 4 slides.

We stayed at the North Rim campground inside the park the day it opened on May 15th, and drove past Jacobs Lake. Jacobs Lake Campground appeared to be a nice place, with tall trees, and fairly clear sites. Our Discovery is about the same size, and we too towed our car. I would have no concerns staying at Jacobs lake. Reservations inside the park fill up fast, but if you want to check it out, there are sites that accommodate rigs our size with no problems - see pix below. Enjoy - it's a beautiful park! And yes, it snowed on us the day we arrived...

Be aware that there is no lake at Jacob Lake.

The North Rim area will have some beautiful aspen at this time of year. There's also a very nice forest service campground closer to the national park called DeMotte. It can handle big rigs. Also, the well-maintained forest road just south of DeMotte has some lovely boondocking areas which begin approx. 1/4 mile in - also good for big rigs.

We stayed at Jacob Lake (really just a big pond) in a 42 ft with tow. No problem. It's a nice campground with large gravel spaces, full hookups and lots of big trees for shade.
I would stay there again without hesitation.
BTW: they have about three acres where you can take your dog off leash if it's good about coming when called.
