We spent two nights at the Indian Garden campground. It was great to have a picnic table with a roof over it, running water, and toilets! This may not seem like much, but it's unexpected when backpacking AND it's much appreciated when the the weather's bad (as it was when we were there)!
Stopped for lunch and to get a break, Just delighted I could get out of the saddle with out falling! My mule ride was so much fun and the wranglers were the best! If you have not been-give it a try! The forest ranger and his family are an added delight!
If you are not going all the way to the river, Indian Garden is a good place to stop and picnic before returning to the rim. Take your time, carry water, and start all your hikes early in the morning during the summer.
Hiked through here while going Rim-Rim-Rim and another time while hiking the Bright Angel Trail to Plateau Point. It's a beautiful little oasis in the Grand Canyon. I always appreciate the American Flag that flies above the Ranger's quarters there.
For those going down to Plateau Point, this is where you regroup for the ultimate stair master ever; the hike back up. I took a nap, cleaned my feet, change into fresh socks and head back up. It is beyond just "an oasis" when you think how many people in hundreds of years have rested here.

This camp is the perfect distance for the first time Grand Canyon hiker. It's halfway down Bright Angel, has plenty of shade trees, bathrooms, a nice little creek and water year round. It does take a permit to stay here so plan at least 4 months in advance if you want to stay.
We spent time here on our way down and then back up the Bright Angel Trail. The benches, tress, shade, water, and the amazing Phoenix composting toilets were most welcome!
