  • Great place to camp. You can post up next to the Colorado River. It was a great experience. The restrooms were clean and the Rangers are helpful. I loved hearing the River while I slept. Great relaxing place.
  • It was great until we got to the end of the Gorman Falls Trail when the trail got really steep. They could use some water stations or at least a sink in the bathroom. If you're going BRING WATER and I suggest at least 3 to 4 bottles a person so you have plenty, and buying a walking stick in the HQ is COMPLETELY worth it, they're a little over $13, the waterfall is beautiful and so are some of the scenes you see through the trail.
