Stars near the Grand Canyon

Great stay at Little Heavens Ranch! Very peaceful and quiet, great view of the mountains and at night we enjoyed the dark sky full of stars and the Milky Way! Host were very polite and gracious sharing their camp.

Thank you!

Grand Canyon Fun

We had site #5; it was peaceful, relaxing, and quiet. Due to COVID, we had a contactless checking but spoke with the host while leaving for the Grand Canyon. He was sweet and told my kids they could take some beautiful red rocks near our campsite. The Grand Canyon is about 20 miles up the road which made it vaery convenient.

Very nice place close to GCNP

We spent one night there on the way to GCNP; it was super quiet, easy in and out. We have very low class C motorhome, hence we drove very slow to get there as instructed by the host and got there without any issue. We haven't had chance to see our hosts, but they had responded almost immediately to our 'last minute stay request' and accepted us without any hesitation. Thank you.

First Time!

This was our first boondocking and MrnMrsZona where very helpful. We did try our best to communicate with them on our plans for our stay and things did change a bit which caused us to not abide by all the rules. We did feel nervous about leaving at 3 am to head to the Grand Canyon to catch the beautiful sunrise, but thought we were ok because in previous conversations with the host, they we could come and go as we pleased. We are sorry if we inconvenienced anyone, but we have already learned a lot.

They were very helpful with directions and being only 20 miles from the GCNP it was convenient and cut down on more travel time.

Quiet location with nice view

The owners were very communicative and friendly. The contactless checkin was seemless with very good directions. We had a quiet evening and was blessed with a fabulous sunset. Easy access to GCNP. We were up and out early to beat the crowds with no issues.

Thank you for a pleasant stay and hospitality.

Lots of Heaven!

Wow! They should change the name to "Lots of Heaven"! You can't get any closer without dying! So the 2 roads are a little rough, it's worth it! The quiet of the desert, and the stars at night are Awesome! Camping/RV spots are spread out so you feel like your out on your own. Will definitely be back to get off the grid again!

Great location

Very nice place to camp. Close to the Grand Canyon National Park. Friendly and kind hosts. Level site, very quiet. We filled our water tank at the park, dumped at the 76 station by Williams. Nice area.

A little piece of Gods artistry

Wonderful hosts that were gracious enough to share their piece of heaven with us!

Quiet and Peaceful

The host is very pleasant and responsive. The location is back a very rough dirt road and is under some construction. It is very quiet and dark at night (except for the full moon when we were there). It is in an open range so there is no protection from the wind (which was extreme during our visit) but it is great for solar and satallite (no obstructions).

We would stay again if the winds were reasonable and an acceptable boondocking site wasn't available in the national forest about 15 miles north.

Perfectly peaceful

This spot was absolutely beautiful, so peaceful and very convenient to the grand canyon. The stars were unlike anything I have ever seen and the host were so nice. I will definitely staying again in the future.

A true “out west” off-grid experience!

This site is perfect for those who want to disconnect while still having the option to connect (great cell service for Verizon and others) and with the security of a private property.

The hosts are very kind, communicative, and generous with their space. The stars here are amazing and the distance from Grand Canyon is nothing. This is a high plateau like area and has high winds at times. Be sure to ask how you can situate your rig/tent/etc. so that you are facing downwind. This was not a problem at all and is more of a note for convenience.

We’re certainly coming back!

Perfect relaxation!

A great spot to check out the canyon! The hosts were incredibly kind and helped me out when my generator failed. It’s so peaceful! Just be prepared because town is 35 miles away!

Wide open spaces

From LHR you can for miles in all directions. The location was also perfect for visiting the Grand Canyon. Flagstaff and Sedona are very accessible from here. Nice trusting hosts. We would stay again while in the area.

Easy entrance and convenient location

The host was very communicative and helpful when describing how to get to his location. The views are beautiful and the spot was a wonderful base from which to visit the Grand Canyon. Thanks Little Heaven Ranch!

Nice stay under the stars

Thanks to MrnMrsZona for hosting us. They sent us complete directions and instructions on how to use the entry gate so we could have a contactless arrival. We were able to see the Grand Canyon 2 days in a row and were lucky enough to be staying during a meteor shower. The stars were so amazing and we had a wonderful time during our brief stay. Our host came out to meet us on arrival and made sure we were in the right spot. So grateful to have enjoyed their Little Heaven Ranch.

A piece of Heaven

Very quiet and well spaced sites. This is real boondocking with no water, electric or sewer. We have solar so it was fine for us. The road in and out is very rough but if you go 3 to 5 miles an hour it’s okay. We really enjoyed the view of the San Francisco Mountains near Flagstaff and only 20 miles to the Grand Canyon! Much closer than Williams if you can’t get a spot in the GC Campgrounds (since they are booked a year in advance).

Very Convenient for Grand Canyon

Contactless check in, easy spots with fire pits and tables even, pretty views of the mountains. The road in off the highway was super rough but we just took it very very slowly. Was really convenient for our trip to the Grand Canyon. Thanks hosts!

Great location for Grand Canyon National Park

We stayed 2 nights at Little Heaven Ranch and appreciated the great views and proximity to the Grand Canyon. The hosts had provided a great map of their location and letter with useful info.

Great Time

We had a very nice stay at LHR. Sad the weather wasn't on our side and had to leave earlier than expected but overall great location, beautiful sunsets, and nice people!

Perfect spot for a trip to the Grand Canyon

Quiet location and so close to the Grand Canyon! We enjoyed our 2 night stay at our very own site at Little Heaven Ranch. This location is very easy to find if you follow the hosts directions, a bit of a rough road- but if you take it easy you won’t have any issues! We will most definitely be back again for more adventures in the area. Thank you!

Good spot. A bit tricky to find

Very helpful host. But don’t follow the gps. I got late. It wasn’t my fault. Go during the day. I stated one night as I boondocked in the rv parking the other nights. Right in the park. No one bothered me.

Nice place to relax after a long day of driving. Very close to Grand Canyon for a quick visit along our way. Host very pleasant and considerate.Beautiful view of Desert sunrise And sunset.

Amazing stay!

Mrnmrszona gave us very detailed directions on finding their place and met us at the gate with a friendly smile. They have a huge plot of land with tons of space, but unfortunately it had just rained so the terrain was not fit for driving in some areas (at least we think). They kindly offered us use of their electricity hook up as well as their a place to dump our garbage. It rained most of the night but otherwise the stay was pleasant. Would recommend to anyone to stay there. Great hosts.
