I can't improve upon RaktimRay's evocative description below but wish to clarify something: the junction he mentioned is the 2.4 km (one-way) trail to a Plateau Point (where the water was not working a few days ago.) It did not seem well marked as he said but we were coming up and so weren't tempted to take the wrong turn....

This campground is well maintained and the park ranger couldn't have been friendlier. She answered a lot of our questions and gave us suggestions on how to add to our experiences. Don't forget to enter the lottery if you want to camp here as so need a permit.

Indian garden is located roughly halfway through the Bright Angel trail and is an important stop for almost all hikers. It has water throughout the year and is the last place to fill up your bottle if you are headed down to the Colorado as there are no more stops till you reach Phantom Ranch. Apart from this crucial feature,...

We day hiked on the Bright Angel Trail out to Plateau Point, and stopped at the day use area at Indian Gardens for rest before our hike out. It was a comfortable place to relax near the creek, and close to the restrooms and water. Nice spot! While there we saw a big Grand Canyon rattlesnake. It had to be...

We hiked to Phantom Ranch and back via Bright Angel Trail on July 23 - 24, 2016. Indian Garden is lushly shaded, has benches to rest on and restrooms. It is also the LAST water stop before Phantom Ranch so make sure that you fill every water container you have before leaving. There was a creek there but we didn't...

My husband and I just completed a Grand Canyon hiking adventure with the Wildland Trekking company for our 20th anniversary. We camped for 2 nights at Indian Garden. We had a premiere campsite next to the bathroom near the top of the sites with plenty of shade and access to water. I found the compost bathrooms to be very clean...

The hike down Bright Angel trail is an adventure in itself and we were so glad to see the sign for Indian Gardens after all those switchbacks. IG is a small, shady, beautiful campground half-way down. We picked the site closest to the bathrooms, which was a mixed blessing. Great for us when we needed to go, but also meant...

Camped out at IG with wife and sons (13 & 9). Della, (Park Ranger) is the bomb. So full of life and excitement about her job and the park. It was so refreshing to visit with her. Our stay there was awesome. Great sites with covered tables, easy access to bathrooms that were super clean and looked brand new. IG...

It's well worth the 4.6 mile hike into and through this beauty. Incredible how such an oasis can grow and maintain itself in the midst of a desert climate. Plenty of places to sit and take in this green paradise. The water (when available) is pure and refreshing. Enjoy.

Indian Garden is a beautiful stop on Bright Angel Trail. It is approximately half way between the rim trailhead and Colorado river. It has water available, toilets, rest benches, access to stream. After walking the trail through desert-like landscapes arriving to Indian Garden feels like reaching a green oasis! There is a small campground for about 15 tents available. You...

“First come, first served. Also, there are day hikers that may be using the sites as they rest - ask and you may find out that the site is not yet taken for the night.”
