HIKING
Hikers must stick to only prescribed trails of the Havasupai Indian Reservation.   There is recreational hiking to Beaver falls which is approximately 3 miles from the Campgrounds; or to the Colorado River which is 8 miles from the Campgrounds. These hikes are scenic-filled and are awesome but can be physically demanding. So. if you are to take these hikes please make sure you are adequately prepared and supplied with water and food.
