Ten-X

Ten-X

Undoubtedly, the main attraction of Ten-X Campground is that it is only 8 miles from Grand Canyon National Park in the Tusayan District; however, the area does have merits of its own. Ten-X has a self-guided nature trail, and it is located in a beautiful ponderosa pine/gambel oak forest. During the season, educational and entertaining evening campfire programs are featured at the outdoor amphitheater.

Facilities: 70 campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 18 sites are single-car spurs and 52 are pull-through car and trailer sites. All roads and spurs are paved. Amenities include picnic tables, fire rings, barbeque grills, water, vault toilets, and trash receptacles. NO HOOK-UPS. Campground hosts on duty. Showers are available in the Grand Canyon National Park Village. Group site available (reservations required for groups).

Adjacent to Ten-X is the Charley Tank Group Site, a large camping area with tables and fire rings. The site has its own vault toilets and trash receptacles, but water is available at the nearby Ten-X Campground. All-access roads and spurs are dirt.
