I checked out Rvparksreview and the reviews seemed odd and old. Does anyone have any update info. This place looks interesting to me. Just want to use it as a one night stop over.

Some different points of view might help? Most of these are on the high side of average.

I've been through there on my way to North Rim a handful of years ago. I remember the Navajo bridge as being pretty spectacular with native flea market type tables at one end selling stuff. other than that we took a few pics and then continued on our way. We never actually checked out the campground. Sorry. Maybe next time we will.

Did you get any pictures of the condors?


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

When we passed through there, we didn't know they HAD condors. [emoticon]

However, on our first trip to the Grand Canyon SR, we were walking the rim trail and happened to overhear a Ranger giving a talk about them to a small crowd. Said they were in the canyon, but fairly elusive and hard to spot. A few seconds later, one flew right up over the rim near where we were standing, but I didn't have time to react and get a picture, I was so surprised by it. Everyone was ooohing and ahhhing as it circled near us over the canyon a few times and then it flew off into the bowels of the canyon, slowly disappearing into the haze.
I did get some shots of a group of elk does walking past us farther along the rim trail that same day. We were all alone on a section of trail and stopped to grab a sip of water, and they walked right past us like we weren't even there. They gave us a quick look, and then just walked over to the edge of the canyon rim, and then disappeared over the edge.

Yep, they are truly awesome. Great shot. You must have timed that bungee drop perfectly, to get such a clear shot. [emoticon]

One thing I remembered about the one we saw at the GCSR. Before the condor fly-by swoop, we noticed that there were lots of very large ravens along the rim. Just doing their thing, looking for handouts from the touristas, and flying around like they owned the place. They must have been getting too close to some of the smaller bird's nests, and seemed to be tormenting them, because the small birds would chase them around squawking and dive bombing them to get the ravens to leave the area.
What sticks in my mind was, when the condor appeared, suddenly it was these huge ravens chasing the condor around, while it pretty much ignored them, and they were cawing and squawking at the bigger bird, just like they had been tormenting the smaller birds a few minutes earlier. The condor made them look like sparrows, it was that big when in flight, compared to the ravens.
Your picture bought back that memory.
Thanks.[emoticon]

It's not that close to Page, AZ but if you're passing by it's worth a stop. We stayed at Lee's Ferry campground with our 40' motorhome for a few nights and did some fishing. It was very pleasant with a nice view. There's a riverside trail that's interesting. We'd recommend it.

Here's the information on the campground and lots of good reading about the area:

It’s really nice, if you can get one of the few spots overlooking the river. It’s not near Page. Going from Page, there it’s a pretty large, steep downgrade, and then the road back through a twisty canyon. It’s kinda out of the way, but very pretty. Bring lots of leveling blocks if your coach is over 25’

If you stop at the bridge and walk out to view the canyon under the bridge there's condors all over under the bridge, at least when we've stopped there. Watched 1 play with a water bottle for a long time.

Cool. Mental note added to to do list, for next time we're in the area. [emoticon]
