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.
