At other National Park sites, we lived on the grounds of the park. At Pipe Spring we spent the summer up the hill from the monument at Kaibab Paiute Tribe RV Park and Campground. Pipe Spring paid for our stay, as National Park volunteers. So we enjoyed the campground and the people who came and went over the summer.
Kaibab Paiute Tribe RV Park and Campground has 58 pull-through sites with 50 or 30 amp full hookups. They also have a small lawn with 16 tent sites that back up onto it. The campground is centrally located to the national parks and monuments. Some people who came for a night decided to extend their stays for up to a month as they explored the area. A big bonus was the cost – only $25 a night for full hookups. If you belong to Passport America, the cost for a week was less than $100. Best deal in the area.
Kaibab Paiute Tribe RV Park is newly remodeled and is one of the cleanest campgrounds we have ever stayed in. They have a large clubhouse that anyone is welcome to use anytime. The restrooms, showers, and laundry are available 24 hours a day. The clubhouse has a full kitchen, a big screen television, a ping pong table, and a book and game library.
The free internet was the best we have ever had at a campground. Free WiFi helped to make up for the lack of cell phone service. The internet was so good that we could stream movies and television shows. The only time the campground was full was one weekend in September when an Airstream Caravan stopped by for a few days. During the hot days of July and August there were often just the four RVs belonging to those of us that worked at the monument.
Although access to the Kaibab Paiute Reservation is restricted unless you have a guide with you, there is a nice hiking / biking trail beside the park. We walked down the trail to work or to the convenience store. We walked up the trail to the community center where we could get cell phone service. It was always a beautiful walk in either direction with great views of the Arizona Strip. We had some spectacular sunrises and sunsets from our perch on top of the hill. We also enjoyed our views of the night skies.
If you want a central location for visiting Zion, Bryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon – as well as all the other monuments and parks in the area – Kaibab Paiute Tribe RV Park is a great place to stay.
