That is great info, had not heard that, love this kind of info!Canyonram wrote:Sirena mentioned the old fire lookout tower near Grandview. You can 'free' camp here even though you are about as close to inside the Park as you can get. There is a good road that crosses over from the National Park to the Forest Service area. Just drive over the cattle guard over the road and you are on Forest Service territory. Check your topo map and locate Grandview Point on the South Rim---you can see the lookout tower and dashed boundary line between GC Park and Forest Service.
(The NPS has been trying to keep this secret to avoid abuse of that location and overcrowding---most people just zip by not realizing on their way to the Desert View campground.) http://www.trails.com/topomap.aspx?trailid=XFT002-006
